Frequently Asked Questions


We have tried to anticipate questions you might have about Dr. Golusinski's transition to Piedmont Healthcare and provide the answers here. 

1.

Why is Dr. Golusinski closing his practice and joining Piedmont Healthcare.

In today's medical environment, managing a solo practice was becoming more and more difficult.  Rather than simply closing the practice, a mutually beneficial option was sought that would allow Dr. Golusinski to serve the majority of his current patients.  Piedmont Healthcare is a healthcare system with which Dr. Golusinski has shared the care of many of his patients.  They were willing to have Dr. Golusinski join them at a practice in relatively close proximity so that as many patients as are interested may continue to see Dr. Golusinski as their family physician.


2.

What about Antrice?

Unfortunately, Piedmont currently does not have a position at Piedmont Midtown and as a large system was not able to offer a position outside their routine application process.  We are doing everything we can to help Antrice find future employment so she lands on her feet. 

Here is a link to Antrice's Linkedin profile.  Click here.


3.

I already have future appointments scheduled, what do I do?

Dr. Golusinski will continue to see patients at the current location until March 20, 2019.  Your appointments there are still "on the books."

After that date, patients who wish to see Dr. Golusinski at Piedmont Midtown will need to fill out a transfer of records form.  If that form is completed, the current appointments will be transferred to the Piedmont Midtown schedule and patients will be seen there at the previously scheduled time and date.  

There will be an approximately two week transition period as the current location closes and Dr. Golusinski starts seeing patients at the new location.  We will be working with Piedmont to see that patients who wish to join Dr. Golusinski at the new location will have their needs met.  

If you wish to schedule a future appointment after March 20th with Dr. Golusinski at Piedmont, please call our current number, 404-577-7800, as the Piedmont schedule has not been created yet.  Your appointment will then be moved to Piedmont provided we have your release.

Once Dr. Golusinski starts seeing patients at the Piedmont Midtown, there may be some limit on appointments as he learns a new computer system.  We may need to call you to make some adjustments in the schedule as we work through this transition

Patients preferring not to see Dr. Golusinski at the new location may fill out a transfer of record form to have their records transferred to a new physician.  In this case, appointments after March 20th will be cancelled and not transferred.

How do I fill out a transfer of records form?

Forms were sent in the patient notification letter that active patients should have received on or about December 26, 2020.

7.

What insurances will Dr. Golusinski be taking at Piedmont?

Piedmont accepts most major insurances and most of the same insurances that Dr. Golusinski has been accepting.  

Two notable differences:

Piedmont does not accept the BlueCross/BlueShield/Anthem Pathway products obtained through the Exchange (Affordable Care Act products).  They have traditionally accepted AmBetter off the Exchange.  Piedmont does work with patients to try to work out payment options when not using insurance.

Piedmont does accept Aetna, but patients who are insured on Aetna through Emory as an employer may be subject to higher copays as this would be at a higher tier.  If you are ensured on Aetna through Emory, please click here.

As always, please check your benefits and insurance as these things change frequently.

For a list of insurances that are planned to be accepted at the new location, click here.

If you have an insurance that is an HMO, POS or Tricare Prime where Dr. Golusinski is your designated/named primary care physician (his name is on your card), after March 30th you will need to reselect Dr. Golusinski at the new location. 


8.

>resources of an excellent medical group

>free two hour validated parking

>acceptance of credit cards
