Summertime Emergency? Come to the Emory Johns Creek Emergency Department!

Emory Johns Creek HospitalSummer’s here, and along with barbecues, baseball, and pool parties come the inevitable bites, bumps, and scrapes. In most cases, summertime ailments don’t require much more than a bag of ice and a Band-Aid. But if you do need emergency help, the Emory Johns Creek Hospital Emergency Department is here for you—with some of the best doctors, highest patient satisfaction scores, and shortest wait times in the area.

Arthur Griffiths, M.D., F.A.C.E.P., Senior Emergency Physician and Emergency Department Physician Community Liaison at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, says the cases he sees this time of year run the gamut from sports injuries to spider bites to heatstroke. Not sure how to tell when an injury merits a visit to the ER? When in doubt, make the trip. Have a bad cut? A lot of people don’t realize you have six hours to sew a laceration. If you sleep on it, it’s too late. Bitten by an insect? If you find yourself having difficulty breathing or developing a fever, or the bite is getting bigger quickly or starting to open up, let us take a look. Inhaler not helping your asthma? We can help.

“It’s always safer to come in if there’s a concern,” says Dr. Griffiths. “Come in. Let us evaluate you.”

Emory Johns Creek also offers interventional cardiology and are a certified Primary Stroke Center. During the summer, says Dr. Griffiths, “our patients are overexerting themselves, doing things they haven’t done in a while.” With heart attacks and strokes, fast intervention is key. If you have chest pain, weakness in an extremity, or numbness, come in immediately for quick evaluation and treatment.

“We are your community emergency department,” says Dr. Griffiths. “We provide a quiet, compassionate, caring environment with the highest in quality of care.”
