It was among the first practices in metro Atlanta to offer same-day and walk-in visits, direct scheduling with in-house specialists, and onsite imaging, laboratory, physical therapy, and pharmacy services. GC patients avoid urgent care and emergency room costs by having easy access to doctors they know and trust in a comprehensive care model.
