Welcome to Atlanta Children's Clinical Center
At ACCC, we strive to provide you and your family with the highest quality pediatric care in a compassionate, efficient, and personal manner. We offer same day sick appointments, our own nurse triage line during the day, and Saturday morning appointments. When the office is closed, you can reach your doctor on call in the evenings, weekends, and holidays. We are conveniently located in Buckhead near 85/75/400 highways. We even have FREE parking!

We continue to offer telemedicine! There are some sick visits such as rashes and some behavioral/mental health visits that can be adequately addressed via telemedicine. We can also discuss any concerns about Covid19 that you may have via telemedicine. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine visit, please call the office first to discuss your child's symptoms. If telemedicine is an option, the nurse will schedule you for an appointment during our regular office hours, and collect any copay or fees that may be due. Right now, the laws about telehealth are changing all the time, and we plan to bill your insurance, but if your insurance does not cover telehealth, you will be responsible for the full amount.
Flu Vaccine/Covid-19 Update 9/24/21:
We have Flu Vaccines--both flumist and flu shots. We are offering flumist to healthy children ages 4 and older and shots to those 6 mos of age and older. Children can be vaccinated at a flu appointment or at their regular well visit. We conveniently have appointments after school and on Saturdays.
We continue to vaccinate children ages 12 and older against Covid-19. Please call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child received their first dose elsewhere, we can still vaccinate them for their second dose.

Covid-19 Testing update:
We have an in office rapid antigen test for Covid-19. We can do this test if your child is ill with symptoms or if they have been exposed and are asymptomatic. The results are known within 15 minutes. We also have the ability to continue to send out the PCR tests. The turn-around time for the PCR test is now about 2 business days. Many parents have also asked about antibody testing. This is a blood test to see if your child has antibodies to the novel coronavirus. We are not sure how long those antibodies remain detectable in the bloodstream and so if your child had symptoms consistent with Covid-19, we can order the test but be mindful that the results may or may not provide the information you are seeking.
This is a rapidly changing situation and we will keep you updated as recommendations change. Thank you for your continued trust in us as your pediatricians. Here are links to the CDC website, GA dept of health, and the AAP website for parents:
What to do when your child gets sick after hours? Call us first! One of us is always available whenever the office is closed. You can speak directly with us, and we can advise you on the best course of action. If it is Saturday morning, bring them in to the office. We are open from 830 am to noon every Saturday. If it is in the evening or Sunday, call us first. Often, we can give you advice on what to do or, if appropriate, do a virtual telemedicine visit right from the comfort of your home.
Insurance: Each time you bring your child to the office, we will ask you for your insurance card. It is stated in your contract with your insurance company that we must do this, and you must provide it so we can verify your benefits. We know that it is an inconvenience; however, we must abide by the contracts that you have with your insurance company.
School forms and Sports Physicals: An annual physical is required for our doctors to be able to complete and sign school and sports forms. If your child has had a well visit exam within the last 12 months, our doctors can sign their forms. We can provide the 3231 and 3300 forms, as well as the generic GHSA physical form. However, please be aware that some schools and camps have specific forms that we cannot generate--you have to provide us with those specific forms.
