When you need us and the office is not open:
If you have an emergency situation, call 911 and/or go directly to the emergency room. Kennesaw Pediatrics will always be available to you during an emergency.
When the office is closed and a question cannot safely wait until the office reopens, your phone call will be answered by our pediatric call center and a message will be sent to the KP provider on call. The call center staff is specially trained to respond to pediatric health topics and follows the protocols established by Kennesaw Pediatrics. The KP provider will then call you back promptly to discuss your concerns and advise you further.
Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for regular hours. The provider on call will not have access to the scheduling or forms request system.
Recommended Urgent Care Centers:
CHOA Urgent Care See below for online scheduling and directions for the three closest centers.

CHOA centers have doctors and nurses who are specially trained to diagnose and treat your growing child or teen. After your visit, they will communicate directly with your child’s KP doctor, informing us of any test results or procedures that were performed so we can update your child’s medical records and provide follow-up care, if needed.

- A pediatrician on staff
- Staff specially trained to diagnose and treat children 0 to 21 years old
- Walk-in hours seven days a week, including evenings and holidays
