After-hours/Weekend Visit Information
After-hours and weekend appointments are available at Gwinnett Clinic! Walk-ins are also welcome during these times.*
*Open Saturday 10am - 4pm (last patient check-in 3:30pm)
- Duluth/Pleasant Hill
- Lawrenceville (main)
- Sugar Hill
*Open Sunday 10am - 2pm (last patient check-in 1:30pm)
Providers rotate their schedules on the weekend, so please call ahead if you would like to know which provider will be on staff for your visit.
Only primary cares services (preventive / wellness, sick visits, minor urgent care services**) are available on weekends.
While we encourage all patients to schedule appointments so that their insurance may be verified prior to the visit, we welcome walk-ins and new patients at any time.
We always recommend calling ahead before walking in. You should confirm: the physician/NP is available for the remainder of the session, your insurance is accepted, and the on-duty provider can perform your desired service.
*Hours subject to change without notice. Please call ahead to confirm.
On Saturday, the last patient will be checked in at 3:30pm.
On Sunday, the last patient will be checked in at 1:30pm.
**We are a primary care office that treats walk-ins and minor urgent care problems. We are not an urgent care / emergency room provider.
Please note that we charge a nominal fee in addition to the standard co-pay for these visits. This fee is to cover the additional costs we incur to provide patients the convenience of weekend appointments. Our patients consistently tell us that the benefits of consulting a well-trained physician for after-hours care outside the hospital emergency room far outweigh the slight additional cost.
After-hours Insurance Verification
If we cannot verify your insurance coverage over the weekend, our policy is to hold your credit card, check, or cash deposit until insurance verification can be performed during normal business hours. This is necessary if you are a new patient, if your insurance has changed, or if you have not been seen at Gwinnett Clinic in several months. Once we are able to verify your insurance, we will refund your deposit (less your co-payment, if any). You always have the option of having insurance verified during normal business hours prior to a weekend appointment or making your appointment during normal business hours.
