09/12/2023: We have flu shots! The American Academy of Pediatrics and our doctors recommend annual flu vaccines for all patients 6 months of age or older.  We also have flumist available for healthy children ages 4 and up as option.   Please call the office to schedule your child's flu vaccine today! As in years past, we will offer flu vaccines to parents as well.

04/05/2023: The Public Health Emergency for Covid-19 is ending on May 11, 2023.  What does this mean? We have compiled a list of questions and answers for families here.

4/12/2023: Dr. Chugani and Dr. Ference have both completed the Reach Institute's Program on Patient-Centered Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care. This program has given them additional training to help care for children and teens with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and ADHD.  If you think your child might be dealing with such issues, or if you are not sure, please reach out to make an appointment, and we can help you figure it out.

International Travel Plans?: Many of our teens and families are traveling abroad after 3 long years of the pandemic.  If your child or your family is going to a country that requires typhoid vaccine or malaria prophylaxis, please make an appointment so we can give you the vaccine and discuss malaria medication options.  You can check travel requirements at cdc.gov

After Hours: What to do when your child gets sick after hours? Call us first! One of us is always available whenever the office is closed. You can speak directly with us, and we can advise you on the best course of action. If it is Saturday morning, bring them in to the office. We are open from 830 am to noon every Saturday. If it is in the evening or Sunday, call us first. Often, we can give you advice on what to do or, if appropriate, do a virtual telemedicine visit right from the comfort of your home.

Insurance: Each time you bring your child to the office, we will ask you for your insurance card. It is stated in your contract with your insurance company that we must do this, and you must provide it so we can verify your benefits. We know that it is an inconvenience; however, we must abide by the contracts that you have with your insurance company..

School forms and Sports Physicals: An annual physical is required for our doctors to be able to complete and sign school and sports forms. If your child has had a well visit exam within the last 12 months, our doctors can sign their forms. We can provide the 3231 and 3300 forms, as well as the generic GHSA physical form. However, please be aware that some schools and camps have specific forms that we cannot generate--you have to provide us with those specific forms.

Once we receive the forms, please allow us 2 to 3 business days for completion. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Online Features: We have updated many of our web features to include online bill-pay, and other parental resources such as information about vaccines, common illnesses and injuries, and school/camp forms. We encourage you to utilize the resources we have made available to you as many of your questions or concerns may be answered or addressed regarding your child(ren) without having to wait on the telephone or for someone to get back to you. We hope that these features will enhance your visit and your child's visit here at the Atlanta Children's Clinical Center.

New Patients: We are accepting new patients! Please call the office to ensure that we accept your insurance policy. We offer one complimentary "Meet and Greet" appointment for new families either in person in the office or via telemedicine, if you prefer. We must receive medical records from the previous pediatrician prior to making any appointments for your child. A form for requesting records can found in Patient Forms under the Forms & Policies tab.

What Our Patients Say About Us

    Good pediatrician in town. Take both of my kids here and no complaints. Drs. Chugani and Ference are extremely nice and very patient with the kids. They also create a very welcoming environment. I believe they are traditionally pretty full with their patient load, but if you live in the area, it's worth seeing if they are accepting new patients.

    Dan (parent)

    "I was a patient at Atlanta Children's Clinical Center (cared for by Dr. Maxey and Dr. Chugani) from birth until "graduating" out of the practice. When we had our daughter, I couldn't imagine going to any other provider. All of the staff at ACCC are incredibly patient in answering any questions we have about our children - and we have a lot. They have never once made us feel rushed or stupid for asking the crazy questions that come with being a first time parent - I think that is what makes ACCC so unique. Dr. Chugani and Dr. Ference take time to explain complex medical information in easy to understand terms for worried parents and children (they have always taken the time to field questions from our kids). You know that they are really, truly listening to your concerns and that they deeply care for your children. We have complete trust and confidence that we are receiving the best possible care for our children by seeing Dr. Chugani and Dr. Ference. An added bonus is that whenever our kids play with their toy doctor kit, they pretend to be Dr. Chugani so we know they love her too (despite how they may act while actually in the exam room)!"

    Lauren C.

    "We love Dr. Chugani and all the doctors and staff at Atlanta Children’s Clinical Center!  We have been with ACCC since our children were born, and we truly feel like they are our family.  Dr. Chugani (and everyone at ACCC) is so compassionate and caring, and has made such an effort to know our children and family.  She always takes the time to answer and address any and all questions and concerns, and treats each child as an individual.  In 10+ years, we have never had an issue getting an appointment or being able to speak with the on-call doctor.  We feel so lucky to have our children with Dr. Chugani and ACCC, and could not recommend them more highly!"
