Pediatrics/Adolescents

Thanks for printing!  Don't forget to come back to Family Health Centers of Georgia, Inc. for fresh articles!

Our caring and highly qualified, general pediatricians take care of children from birth to 19 years old. We provide comprehensive medical care including routine exams, well-baby check-ups, annual exams, episodic care, sick care and more services.

In conjunction with specialty doctors, our pediatricians serve as consultants for patients with a chronic illness such as Asthma, Diabetes or Cerebral Palsy. Our dedicated team of physicians works together to ensure your children receive the care they need and deserve.

We are very proud to participate in a program called “Reach Out and Read.” Every child, starting at their 6 month well-baby check-up through 6 years old, will receive a free, new book at the beginning of each well-appointment. We are passionate about this program and hope it encourages parents to read with their kids to promote literacy and a healthy imagination. (Donations of gently used books are accepted for this program.)

Our Pediatrics Department also provides school-based healthcare by seeing children in the local school systems. Instead of parents having to leave work to pick up a sick child and take them to a doctor’s office, we can do an onsite check-up with your consent. This reduces parents’ time away from work and with a quick diagnosis, helps decrease the transfer of sicknesses to other students and enables students to miss fewer days from school.

Our care doesn’t stop with babies and toddlers. We are committed to taking care of adolescents and helping lead them toward healthy adulthood. Middle schoolers and high schoolers have different experiences and different medical needs. When they come to our Teen Clinic, which is in a separate space from our younger patients, we treat them age-appropriately.

We teach teens how to responsibly take charge of their health and body. We talk about whether they are sexually active, check for STDs, and discuss contraception and abstinence. We also offer counseling, depression support, bullying support, and even refer some patients to specialists or psychologists who can help with teens’ behavioral health.

When they become adults, our hope is that they’ll continue to reach out to doctors and health professionals for medical help and guidance, thanks in part to the positive experiences we provided them in their teenage years.

Our competent and compassionate physicians see your child as more than just an office visit. We take care of the total child, addressing every health-related issue, which can extend to the whole family and their lifestyle.

We are thoughtful, patient and flexible. We won’t turn any child away. Your children have needs and we do our best to take care of them in a caring and professional way.
