After Hours Care

Should a concern about your child arise after office hours, please call the office (the phone lines will be forwarded to the answeirng service — please don't hang up, as someone will answer the phone after the message) or call the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta nurse triage line at 404-250-KIDS (5437). You will have access to a well trained nurse at the Scottish Rite Call Center and the doctor on call will be paged should that be necessary.

You will need to inactivate the block on your phone by dialing *87 so that we will be able to return your phone call. If you have not heard from us within 1 hour, please call again.
