New Baby
If you’re expecting and would like to interview Dr. Sankaran as a future pediatrician for your new born please just call us. Dr. Sankaran would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have.

Pre-Visit Preparation
If your child has seen other physicians we can approach them on your behalf to request the medical records. Please sign the Request to Transfer of Medical Records that will enable us to request these records prior to your visit. This form can be faxed to our office at 770-957-7200, or you may bring it with you to the office in person.

What To Bring To Your First Visit
We work hard to ensure that you and your family receive prompt medical care in a comfortable office setting. To help expedite the first appointment, we ask that you please bring your insurance information and any medical records that haven’t been previously sent. Please come 15 minutes before your first visit in order to complete all necessary forms.

What To Expect
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future visits. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our providers and staff, so we work hard to establish this bond during every appointment to our office. During your initial appointment, we will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have.
