You can request your own appointment at the Gastroenterology Center. A physician referral is not necessary. 

All appointments will be scheduled as soon as possible. Emergencies will be seen at WellStar West Georgia Medical Center's Emergency Department. Please call early in the day for information, advice, or prescriptions. Calls for all refills on prescriptions must be made during office hours. Our secretaries and medical assistants handle incoming calls. Your medical chart will be reviewed and your call returned as soon as possible.

We strive to adhere to our appointment schedule and to schedule all of our appointments in a timely manner.

If you cannot keep an appointment, please call to cancel it at least 24 hours in advance. Our staff will gladly assist you in scheduling another appointment. If you are a Patient Portal user, you may go online and cancel your appointment after hours.
