Ambulatory Treatment Center FAQ

Where is the Ambulatory Treatment Center?
The Ambulatory Treatment Center is at Athens Regional Medical Center on the second floor of Prince Tower I. The registration desk is on the second floor and is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Stop at the desk to register before going to the treatment area.

Who do I call if I need to change my appointment?
To change your appointment time, call our scheduling department at 706-475-1000 (option 2) between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Do you validate parking?
Parking is validated at the nurses' station for two hours. (One ticket per patient per day.) Bring your ticket with you.

What should I bring with me?

  • Bring identification and insurance cards for registration. If your insurance requires a co-pay, be prepared to pay at registration. If you do not have insurance, we offer a Financial Assistance application.
  • Bring a list of your medications you take at home and any medications you will need during your treatment.

Can I have visitors?
Friends and family are welcome. It's not an appropriate setting for small children. Out of respect for our other patients, we ask for limited visitors.

Can I eat before my treatment?
Yes, unless your physician specifically told you not to eat. Complimentary beverages are available.

How long will I be at the Center?
Treatment times vary.

Can I drive myself home after my treatment?
Although most patients are able to drive, it's a good idea to have someone available. Any patients receiving narcotics during treatment must have someone drive them home.
