For Existing Patients:
Making an Appointment
To schedule an appointment, call (706) 316-1908 during office hours.. Existing patients may also schedule appointments in the online patient portal. New patients must submit the new patient online form before an appointment can be made. All office visits are by appointment. Should an acute problem arise, we will try to see you the same day.
Your First Visit
Please plan to arrive 20 minutes early so that we can complete your records. Bring your medical insurance card, pertinent medical records, any prior psychological test reports, and any rating scales or questionnaires given to you during your initial scheduling visit.
Canceling or Rescheduling Appointments
Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you must cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid being billed the full fee for the time our providers had set aside especially for you.
Monday - Thursday 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
