What happens after we sign up? A member of our Community Outreach Team will call you to answer any and all of your questions and set up your child's first appointment. We will then schedule your child for their baseline virtual health assessment with a doctor.
Does my child need to change their regular healthcare provider? No, your child may keep their doctor. We work with and communicate with your child's healthcare providers, specialists, or mental health providers. KDOW is an added service to help support your child's already existing primary care team.
Can I fill out one consent form for all of my children? No. Each child will need their own consent form.
Do I have to be present for my child to be seen? No. With a signed consent form you are not required to be present, but we encourage you to attend if you are available (both virtually or in-person).
How will I know what the provider says during the visit? After each visit, (1) the provider will call you to discuss everything that took place, (2) your child will bring home a 'Report Card' detailing the visit information, and (3) this information is also available online in your Patient Portal.
What happens to my child's care during the school breaks? During school breaks our mobile unit will be located at convenient locations in your local community (ex: parks, shopping centers, apartment complexes, etc). There is also availability after school hours. For after school hour access, please call 404-574-2512. Please visit our website at www.kidsdoconwheels.org for the school break schedule.
Is there anything else I need to fill out to have my child seen by KDOW? In most cases, the answer is no. However, you may need to fill out an online questionnaire if your child needs a good exam between the ages of 0-5 & 11-18. This is called the Child Health & Development Interactive System (CHADIS) questionnaire. Completing CHADIS before your child's well exam helps the provider better assess your child's health and wellness. It also helps address any concerns you may have about your child's health and development. The CHADIS questionnaire can be found and completed online at https://www.site.chadis.com/.
Allergy Testing - If your child needs to have an allergy test performed, an additional consent form will be sent home to be completed.
We're confident you and your child will greatly enjoy the experience and compassionate care of KDOW. If you have any further questions please contact KDOW at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-574-2512.
