The mission of Kids’-Doc-On-Wheels, Inc., (KDOW) is to ensure increased access to high quality
and comprehensive pediatric care in the children’s communities as well as their primary daily
location – SCHOOL. The virtual, iCare Telemedicine Center, serves as a School-based health
clinic in schools, Head Start programs, parks and recreation facilities and in the family homes.
The KDOW Medical Mobile Unit (MMU) serves as a complement to the iCare Telemedicine
Center providing on-site services. KDOW also serves as a Primary Care Provider as well as a
complement to the community pediatricians in order to improve children's access to medical,
dental and behavioral health services.
Who We Serve
KDOW proudly serves children ages 0 to 18 in public and private schools, early learning and daycare programs, and local YMCAs. We accept Medicaid, private pay insurance, and offers a sliding fee scale for those who qualify. No child will be turned away due to an inability to pay for care.

Children with allergies miss thousands of school days per year. We have the ability to perform skin, blood, and elimination diet tests that help us to determine the most therapeutic method of treatment for your child.
Diagnosis & Treatment of Chronic Conditions
Children with chronic health conditions are prone to frequent doctor's visits. We understand that these conditions effect the entire family, and are dedicated to helping you understand and accommodate your child's needs.
Education on Healthy Nutrition, Habits & Physical Activity
Your child begins to develop habits as young as two years of age. Our team provides information to each of the families that promote healthy habits, leading to a healthy lifestyle.
