Choosing a pediatrician is an important and personal decision and we want you to feel at ease with the care you and your child will receive.

The Kidz Docs offers a full array of services to help your child maintain good health,

  • **October, 2018**
    • The Kidz Docs is once again offering TELEMEDICINE visits! Please call our office to schedule your appointment. You will be directed to the Patient Portal and you will be required to download an application called "HEALOW." 
    • After you are logged in to the Patient Portal, and have installed the appropriate application to your smart phone, you may then join a face-to-face appointment with Dr. Meghan Hulver here at The Kidz Docs.
    • INSURANCE = ONLY Carefirst and FEPBCBS cover these visits in full. For now these are the only patients we can provide this service too. Hopefully by 2019 other insurances will provide for this service as well.
    • We are accepting appointments at this time that are considered "consult" appointments. This includes but is not limited to:
      • Behavior concerns
      • Sleep advice
      • Feeding and eating concerns or quesitons
      • Other questions and concerns that do not require the child to be present for the visit
    • Within the Patient Portal, after you have logged in, there is a link labeled  "Upcoming Appointments."
    • 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time you should click on this button, and then click "Join Visit." Once you click on "Join Visit" you are now placed in a Virtual Waiting Room. The doctor will then be able to also join the visit and you will see their face and can begin your appointment
      • (Within the Healow app are many, many FAQ's about how to join a telemedicine visit including some trouble shooting pointers.) 
  • Expanded Office Hours
  • Prenatal Visits                                                          
  • Well Child Care Exams                                           
  • Newborn Care                                                           
  • Sport Physicals (Yes, we will see your child even if insurance will not cover this exam! If this service is performed as an out-of-pocket expense, our fee is $60)                                 
  • Vision and Hearing Services             
  • Immunizations
  • Sick Child Diagnosis and Treatment
  • Lactation Support/Educators
  • Electronic Medical Records/Patient Portal Online Access to Patient Records
  • Excellent working relationships with pediatric subspecialists at Children's National Medical Center, Fairfax Hospital, Georgetown University Hospital, and Johns Hopkins Hospital
  • Links on website to patient education tools like HealthyChildren.org, the AAP Educational Library, and others  

 

Hospital Affliations

We currently do not conduct hospital rounds at Fairfax or Alexandria Hospital.  Both of these facilities have excellent hospitalists and nenatologists to see newborns and hospitalized children.  We are in regular contact with the hospital based physicians to provide the best care during the hospital stay.  We are happy to see your newborn or child after hospital discharge in our office.

Lab Testing

We are equipped in the office to perform rapid tests for strep throat, mononucleosis, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza virus.  We can also perform finger sticks for hemoglobin or glucose, and urinalysis on urine samples.  If there is any other lab work to be done we would send you to an outside lab that is contracted with your insurance company.  This also applies to x-rays and other imaging studies that are ordered by our providers.
