We know the last thing any parent wants is to bring a well child to the doctor's
office and have the child get sick. In order to minimize this problem, Dr.
Bush's office has separate waiting rooms with separte entrances.
As you enter the building, the entrance to the left goes
to the "well" waiting room and the entrance to the right goes
to the "same day" waiting room. In an effort to minimize the
spread of germs, we do not have any toys for the children
in the "same day" waiting room. Instead, we have a tropical
fish aquarium for the children to enjoy.
For your convenience, we are happy to provide you with
a private, comfortable nursing room.
We answer phone calls and see patients Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. We are closed each day from 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M.
On Wednesday, we see patients from 9:00 A.M. to 12 noon. After 5:00 P.M., patients
may call our After Hours number at (478) 741-3007 for assistance. Pediatrics After
Hours is available to our patients from 5:00 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. during the week and
10:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. on the weekend. Pediatrics After Hours is a clinic that
operates on a first come first serve basis. It is located behind my office on
For the convenience of our patients, we are able to do many
laboratory tests in our office. We are able to perform complete
blood counts, urinalysis, urine cultures, rapid strep tests, strep
cultures, glucose checks, cholesterol and lipid screening, and
hearing and vision screening. We are also able to do allergy
testing for the 36 most common childhood allergens.
Without having to do the multiple skin pricks, we are
able to obtain a teaspoon of blood from the arm and
test for allergies to trees, weeds, grasses, molds,
animals, dust, and foods.
The thought of going to the doctor can sometimes be
scary to our little patients. So, we try to make them as
comfortable as possible. One of the ways we do this
is by providing a variety of whimsical treatment rooms.
Themes range from sports, dinosaurs, aquatic, trucks, Noah's
Ark, and many more. Our goal in offering these bright,
cheerful rooms is to enable your little ones to feel more at ease.
Dr. Bush and his staff are dedicated to providing the best possible care for your
children. We take great pride in what we do and we look forward to watching your
children grow from tiny babies to tantrum throwing toddlers to moody adolescents
to college graduates! We plan on being there every step of the way. If there is any
way that Dr. Bush or his staff can better serve you, please let us know. We are
here to help make parenting, the toughest job there is, a little bit easier.
We respect how busy parents are and how valuable every individual's time is. As a
result, we see patients on an appointment basis only. Occasionally, we have parents
bring a child in without an appointment. Dr. Bush does not make that patient turn
around and go home, but to be fair to the scheduled patients, he does see the
walk-ins after the regularly scheduled patients. At times, Dr. Bush has patients come
in that are very sick. We hope that parents understand that it is necessary to see
those patients fist. Also, from time to time Dr. Bush admits a patient to the hospital
from his office. Naturally, this causes delays. Please be patient.

Please be aware that we accept ALL private insurances but do not accept any new
patients on Medicaid, Wellcare, or Peachcare. We have done this in an effort to limit
the size of our practice. Thus, we are always able to see your sick child on the same
day that you call. Click HERE for more information about insurance and billing.
