Admission / Hospitalization:
We strive to keep our patients out of the hospital.
Dr. Smiddy does have privileges at Atlanta Medical Center, Piedmont Hospital, and Crawford Long Hospital. In the event that you need emergent attention, you should go to the hospital of your choice. If you need to be admitted to the hospital, Dr. Smiddy will likely NOT be the physician to admit you.
He will likely have a doctor admit you who specializes in inpatient medicine or a sub specialist. Home visits are available for long-term bed ridden patients every three months. Patient privacy practice policies are enforced with strict confidentiality guidelines.
Co-pays are due at the time of service. (No Exceptions)
Prescription Refill Request:
Refill requests are taken by phone Monday thru Friday during regular office hours. Refills will not be done over the phone on weekends unless it is an emergency.
