How much do you charge?
Do I need an appointment?
During covid, you need to make an appointment ahead of time. In order to minimize capacity in our clinics to reduce risk of exposure, we do not accept walk-ins. But scheduling an appointment is easy! Fill out our online form or call 404-763-4357.
Can I make an appointment JUST for an ultrasound?
When you schedule an appointment, an ultrasound is not a guaranteed service. Because an ultrasound is a medical procedure, we need to make sure you’re seen by a member of our medical staff before receiving an ultrasound. You’ll first receive a free pregnancy test in our clinic, and if positive, one of our medical staff members will determine if you qualify for an ultrasound.
This determination is made after receiving a pregnancy test at one of our centers.
What is a limited ultrasound?
A limited ultrasound means that we do not assess for gender or other prenatal purposes beyond determining:
1) that the baby is in utero;
2) that the baby has a heartbeat;
3) the measurements of the baby.
How long will a pregnancy test take?
Can I make an appointment for today?
Due to our limited capacity in order to decrease the risk of exposure in the covid pandemic, we cannot accept walk-in appointments. Whenever possible we will fit you in on the same day you call! However, due to the covid pandemic and our cleaning and distancing procedures, it may not be possible too get you an appointment the day you call. We will be sure to schedule you for the soonest possible appointment.

If I’m pregnant, could I also have an STI?
If you have had any sexual contact, it’s possible that you could have an STI in addition to being pregnant. You can contract an STI through any kind of sexual intercourse – vaginal, anal, and oral. If you think you may be pregnant, it’s important to get tested for STIs as well, because they can pose health risks to you if left untreated. Call today to schedule your free STI screening and pregnancy test.
