Parents wanting their children checked for strep throat may obtain a throat culture without an appointment. The culture will be done by the technician, not a provider, and they will be contacted regarding results and treatment. Throat cultures are indicated if symptoms including sore or irritated throat,with or without a fever, stomach ache or rash, have been present for less than 72 hours. Please call and leave a message with the team nurse and we will call back with a time to be present to the clinic. For school attendance forms, the state of Georgia requires completion of a Form 3300 for school attendance. Please see above for days walk-in days and hours. For sports physicals, we conduct one weekend of sports physical clinic per year; otherwise these special exams require a scheduled appointment. Sports physical day is announced several weeks prior to the event and are open to all enrolled beneficiaries. for preventive care, your child should be seen as a newborn during the first week of life, at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, and then annually thereafter. For immunizations, your child's immunizations must be up to date for base childcare and school registration. Pediatric patients' ages 6 months to 18 years are considered high risk for influenza. An annual flu shot is highly recommended for all amity members and pregnant women.
