At First Choice Georgia, we want to help you in any way that we can. When appropriate, we refer our patients to trusted partner agencies in the community to provide:
- Medical care
- Professional counseling
- & more
Each case is evaluated individually. Call our office to make an appointment to discuss your needs.
We can provide you with a verification of pregnancy form if you need one to apply for Medicaid. Proof of Medicaid is required by many doctors’ offices prior to scheduling your first appointment.
The Refuge Domestic Violence Center
The Office of Violence Against Women defines domestic violence as “a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner.” If a patient reveals that she is a victim of domestic violence, we may be able to refer her and her children to the Refuge. This is an emergency shelter which provides comprehensive services for domestic violence and sexual assault victims and their families.
