We are Growing to Meet Your needs!
Anyone who has been to Morrow Family Medicine knows that one of our primary goals is to be available to you anytime you need us. Because of your support, we now need more providers in order to continue seeing you in a timely fashion. So, we are very happy to announce that in the next six months, we will add two physicians and one satellite office to our family!
In March, Dr. Cheryl McGowan will join us. Dr. McGowan has been practicing in Alpharetta since completing her residency in family medicine at Wake Forest. When our new Milton Office opens in the spring of 2016, she will anchor that office and will be “bringing care back to healthcare” in Milton/Alpharetta/Crabapple area.
Then, in June, Dr. Patrick Kindregan will join Dr. Morrow in our Cumming office. Dr. Kindregan is currently Chief Resident at the Family Medicine Residency in Rome, Georgia and will complete his residency in family medicine in June. We look forward to him practicing in the Cumming starting in July.

Tired of waiting for a voicemail message to be returned? Follow this link to submit questions or concerns and receives quick, useful nursing help. Replies to these messages are typically faster than using the telephone. This is just one part of the “MFM Anywhere Access” model.
Many patients take various medications on a daily basis. Others take medications on an as-needed basis but still with some regularity. In order to monitor these medications and your response to them, it is necessary, in many cases, to perform routine examinations or lab tests to ensure that there are no harmful effects from the medications that are supposed to help keep you healthy.
We will make every attempt to prescribe a quantity of those chronic medications sufficient to last you until time for your next routine appointment. This will prevent the need to call the office for more medicine and also will serve to remind you of the need for a return visit.
We will also make every attempt to limit the number of times you have to return to the office for those rechecks. So, if you are being seen for an acute problem and it is getting to be close to the time for a routine medication refill, please remind us so that we can take care of that refill at that acute visit.
Two birds – one stone.
After Hours & Weekends
Anytime you perceive a medical emergency, you should call 911 immediately.
Unfortunately, there may be a time when you have a less emergent medical need after hours or on a weekend. For just such occasions, we are available by phone anytime the office is closed. When you do have an urgent need after hours, simply call the main office number and you will be given the number to contact the provider on call.
We encourage you to make sure that you have plenty of medication on hand before the office is closed for the evening or the weekend. Medication refills are not a reason to call after hours. In addition, a problem that you have had for weeks is not a reason to call after hours, unless that problem has in some way changed, suddenly or acutely.
Calling 911 is always an acceptable thing for you to do whenever you have a concern. It is always better to call 911 and be informed later that it might not have been necessary, than to miss that window of opportunity to intervene at the proper time.
We are committed to your health and well being. We will utilize state of the art technology and old fashioned attitudes to care for all our patients.

Old Fashioned Care & State-of-the-Art Technology
…bringing care back to healthcare…
We want to be good stewards of your time. We will always do our best to be on time for your appointment. Emergencies do arise, however, so when we are running behind we will try to keep you informed of the situation.
Walk in Clinic
The walk-in clinic runs from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. every weekday. If you need to be seen and don’t have an appointment, just come on in. If you’re here before 8:30 a.m., you’ll be seen without an appointment.
Same Day Appointments
We believe it is important to see acutely ill patients as soon as we possibly can. In most cases, that will mean getting a “same-day appointment” for an illness. If your need arises late in the day, we may be forced to bring you in for the walk-in hour the following day. Either way, seeing you as soon as possible is always our goal.
Quality care is in large part about access. We provide an online portal that provides you easy, quick access to all of your medical information. The portal, along with its smartphone app, allows you to be free to handle errands or work and still get fast access to message replies or test results. Access the portal by clicking here.
After Hours Care
While we are open early and every weekday, things do arise when we are not in the office. Morrow Family Medicine has a provider available to you for a phone consultation at all times. If you have an urgent need (not a medication refill) just call the office number, 770.781.8004. The attendant will give you the number for the after hours provider on call. Just as we make every effort to be a good steward of your time, please call after hours only for urgent needs.
If you perceive a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
We Accept Most Insurance
