NOTE: While the GPC does not take referrals from community physicians, the Pediatric Diagnostic Clinic (8:30AM-4:30PM M-F) and After Hours Clinic (sick only, 5PM-9PM M-F and 9AM-8PM Sat.-Sun.) do.

Both clinics are in the GPC but function independently of the GPC. If you need an appointment for the After Hours Clinic (sick only) or your PCP requests a Diagnostic Clinic evaluation for your child, please ask your child's primary care physician for a referral to the ACH After Hours Clinic or Pediatric Diagnostic Clinic.

Physicians should note that these clinics are not walk-in facilities, and do require scheduled appointments through the Appointment Center (501-364-4000).
