Your First Visit
First of all, thank you for trusting Children's Orthopaedics of Atlanta with your child's orthopedic care. We are here to help prepare you and your child for a visit at our office. Below are a few tips that we've found make it easier on you as a parent as well as your child during your visit:
How To Prepare My Child For Their First Visit
No matter their age, if kids that have an idea of what’s going to happen and why, they have a much easier time coping. We want to help you prepare your child for what's going to happen on your child's specific visit.
If you have specific questions, please contact our office.
A Note About Wait Times...
At Children's Orthopaedics of Atlanta, we try our best to provide an exceptional experience for both you and your child. However, our surgeons and orthopedic doctors can run late due to the complex nature of the treatment of children. You deserve to have our full attention, but other children do too. We run quickly compared to other orthopaedic practices but we encourage you to bring toys or homework in case your child has to wait.
Who Will I See During My Visit?
As mentioned above, our orthopedic practice runs very efficiently comparatively with other specialty practices. Part of this is due to the wonderful help from our Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. If your child has a less complicated case, you may see a P.A. or N.P. so that we can get your child in and out as soon as possible and get them back to their normal schedule.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call our office.
