If you need us before or after our regular office hours due to an emergency situation, please call 911. If you need us for a non-urgent matter that does require after hours attention, please call our office at (706) 860-2004 and be connected to the on call physician.
Make an Appointment
Patients are seen by appointment – on the same day the appointment is made if possible. To schedule an appointment, please call (706) 860-2004 during regular business hours.
Please call in advance for office visits. Make follow-up appointments as you leave. We make every effort to stay on schedule although emergencies do arise. If we are seriously delayed, we attempt to notify patients beforehand.

Schedule your next visit online.
New patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork. You can download, print, and complete the forms prior to your appointment. Please bring the completed forms, a list of all medications you are currently taking, recent copies of x-rays, lab results and your insurance card to your appointment.
Unless prior arrangements have been made in advance, co-payments, co-insurance, and outstanding balances are due at the time of service. We recommend that you call your insurance company to verify that we participate with your plan. Patients may be financially responsible for payment of all services even if your insurance company does not pay. Patient accounts that are not paid promptly are subject to third party collections and/or legal action. We accept cash, checks, debit and all major credit cards.
You can also use our secure Online Bill Pay option to pay current statement balances online without setting up an account.
We will submit claims to most major insurance carriers. Please bring your insurance card and I.D. with you to every visit so we can ensure that our records are accurate.
We recommend that you call your insurance company to verify that we participate with your plan.

Cancellations or Rescheduling
To better serve the needs of all our patients, we ask that you call at least 24 hours in advance to cancel or reschedule appointments. We make every effort to stay on schedule, although emergencies arise.
Please bring your medication list with you to each appointment. We prefer to refill your medications at the time of your office visit. Prescription refill is not an emergency, therefore refills will not be placed after hours.
Please leave the following information on the line:
- Date of Birth
- Your Phone Number
- Name of Medication
- Preferred Pharmacy Name
- Pharmacy Phone Number
Allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be called in or faxed to the pharmacy. Please call the pharmacy first to see if your order has been called in before calling the automated line again.
We are unable to repeatedly refill medications long term without an office visit so that we can recheck your condition.
Requesting Medical Records
Requests for medical records can be faxed to (706) 860-2063. Your records are kept confidential. We will not release any of your information without first obtaining a signed authorization from you.
Local Hotel Partners
If you are traveling from out of town, Doctors Hospital has arrangements with nearby hotels that offer discounts to patients who are undergoing surgery at Doctors Hospital.
After-Hours & Emergencies
