Pediatrician Snellville, GA
If your child is ill and must be seen, we will make every effort to take care of him/her as soon as possible. We ask that you please call for an appointment in advance. Please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to cancel or reschedule. Established patients must be accompanied by legal parent/guardian if you are not the legal parent or guardian legal documents must be provided.
Time is set aside daily if your child needs special attention. On certain days and during the winter season, we experience a large volume of telephone calls. We appreciate your patience as we take these calls in the order we receive them, depending on the urgency.
Here at ZAMAN PEDIATRIC CENTER, our goal is to spend individual quality time with our patients. When you call to schedule an appointment, that time is reserved for you. We ask that when you book an appointment you mark it on your calendar and make every effort to keep that scheduled appointment time.
If you absolutely need to cancel an appointment, we require that you give us a 24 (twenty-four) hour advance notice. By informing us in a timely manner of a change in your schedule, it allows for another patient to take advantage of the available time.
In the event our office does not receive adequate, 24 hour notice, your account will be subject to a $25.00 late cancellation fee. Payment will be required before another appointment can be made.
