Come Join Our Family

 

 

Thank you for your interest in Children's Wellness Center. We are a small practice in the heart of your community that is focused on personalized, quality medical care for your children. The goal of our practice is to recapture the relationship between family and physician that seems to be lost in today's medical world. We pride ourselves on the time we take to listen to our patients (and their parents) to make sure we provide the best care for your child.

If you are a prospective new patient, we encourage you to look around and learn more about us and the services we provide.

Thank you for your interest and support! We look forward to seeing you soon.

 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT for Kaiser Permanente Insurance Holders

Effective October 1st, 2010 - Kaiser Permanente will terminate it's contract with TCHN. They are expanding their offices, physicians and services in metro Atlanta and desire their members to see only Kaiser doctors. We did renew a contract with PHCS so that our office may see Kaiser patients with the Multichoice/PHCS plan. Kaiser will pay from Tier 2 benefits which means patients will pay the higher copay and/or deductible as indicated on the insurance card. If you have any questions regarding your change in benefits we ask for you to call the customer service number on you Kaiser insurance card.


JESS KAM PHOTOGRAPHY

Our office has just redecorated the pictures with the beautiful, talented photography of Jess Kam. Jess is a natural light newborn, baby and child photographer. Her style is fun, fresh, and modern. She customizes each session to the child's interests so that she caputres their personality and unique expressions. We hope you enjoy these new pictures as much as we do! If you are interested in learning more about Jess or setting up a session with her you can contact her at www.jesskamm.com or info@jesskamm.com
