Referrals

The providers at Dahlonega Pediatrics have an excellent working relationship with the subspecialists at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and whenever possible, will utilize these doctors for referrals for your child. There are, however, some non-pediatric specialists that we’ve gotten to know over the years and may recommend these doctors in select cases. 

Please call our office if you think your child needs a referral.  If we have not seen him for this problem, we will most likely ask you to bring him in for an appointment to properly address the issue and make the appropriate referral. 

Once we give you a specialist’s name and phone number, please make your own appointment, as you know your schedule best.  Once you have an appointment, call our office and leave a message on our “referral line” stating your child’s name, date of birth, the doctor she will be seeing and the date and time of the appointment. 

It can take up to 72 hours for most insurance companies to then issue the referral number to the specialist, so do call us with plenty of time to take care of this for you.
