Planning Your Admission
To serve current patients in a timely manner, Shepherd Pathways will not be accepting external referrals for the program at this time. We will re-evaluate this decision later in 2017. In the meantime, we will not keep a waiting list or accept applications for the program. We will update the website in mid-August if we are able to begin accepting external referrals.
We will continue to serve our current established patients and those who have been treated at Shepherd in the past. Thank you.
Once we have received all of your information, you will be contacted to set up an appointment with a physician at Shepherd Pathways to be evaluated for potential admission into the appropriate Shepherd Pathways program. Pathways offers a variety of services, and the physician will be able to make recommendations for the Pathways program that can best serve your needs.
If you have any questions about this process or need any assistance, you may call the Admissions Department at 404-350-7602.
If you are found to be a candidate for one of the programs, please be aware that your admission will not be scheduled immediately after your physician appointment. You may be placed on a waiting list until an opening becomes available. Depending on your benefits, the program recommended may not be covered by your insurance. If this occurs, you will be contacted by the Admissions Department to discuss other options for payment and treatment.
The following medical records are needed before scheduling an appointment with the Shepherd Pathways physician:
Once we have received your records, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.
At Shepherd Center, we are committed to appropriate care for our patients. Please understand that your initial appointment is a consultation only and is NOT a guarantee that further services can be provided.
Shepherd Center physicians are unable to serve as your primary care or internal medicine physician.
Due to the volume of patients we see, it is very important that you appear for your appointments on time. Shepherd Center reserves the right to terminate future scheduling for patients who do not show up for appointments and fail to give proper notice in advance.
