Children Need a Special Kind of Care

Devoted to advancing pediatrics, Carousel Pediatrics' experienced team of physicians and staff works to provide for the medical, physical and emotional needs of children. We provide a full range of services for childen and adolescents.

Carousel Pediatrics utilizes the Patient-Centered Medical Home practice model, a team-based, physician-led approach to providing health care. Here, parents are a partner in their child’s healing and well-being. You are your child’s biggest advocate when it comes to his or her health. That’s why it is important to do your research, take your time and choose the right doctor for your family.

A part of Tanner Medical Group, Carousel Pediatrics has access to all the resources of Tanner Health System, including services available through Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton.

Our Services

Newborn Hospital Services

Within 24 hours of your child’s birth, one of our physicians will perform a physical on your baby. You will be contacted about the exam and presented with newborn care instructions. A pediatrician will visit you and your baby daily until you are discharged. When ready for discharge, a physician will provide a repeat exam with discharge instructions and answer any questions you have.

Be sure to contact your insurance company immediately after discharge to add your baby to your insurance plan.

Other Hospital Services

Sometimes an acute illness or other condition means your child needs to be admitted to the hospital. Carousel Pediatrics physicians have admitting privileges with Tanner Health System and admit to the pediatric unit at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, unless the patient needs special services not currently available at the hospital.

Laboratory

Most lab work and X-rays are available at Carousel Pediatrics. Other tests may be performed at outside facilities.

Well-Child Visits

Health maintenance visits are important to good health for your child.

All newborns will have a visit approximately 48 hours after discharge from the nursery to evaluate his or her weight and feeding and to check for jaundice. Depending on results, another visit may be needed in the first week or two of life. Well-child visits to follow include: one month, two months, four months, six months, nine months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months, then yearly until age 21.

Sick-Child Visits

Carousel Pediatrics can help you through the colds, coughs and stomach bugs that all kids catch.

If your child is sick, please call to schedule an appointment. If you can’t keep your appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance.

If your child is sick after hours or on the weekend, bring your child to the emergency department at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica, Higgins General Hospital in Bremen or to Tanner Urgent Care/Villa Rica. An emergency physician can see your child and if necessary, call the on-call physician from our practice.

If you need advice over the phone after hours, call 770.834.0606. The recording will give you a pager number for our after-hours advice line. Please reserve the after-hours phone service for urgent issues only. Your call should be returned within 30 minutes. We cannot call in antibiotics without seeing your child. To request any other type of prescription, have the name and phone number of the pharmacy ready.
