Just because we have an “old fashioned” personalized approach to Pediatrics does not mean we are old fashioned in any other respect. Mendakota Pediatrics implemented its Electronic Health Record (EHR) System in 2004. Our EHR eliminates paper charts (go environment!) and allows our physicians to access your child’s chart 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The EHR is also integrated with our Lab Service Provider (which does complex testing) insuring fast turnaround times for lab information.
Our Clinic Lab is nationally certified (COLA/CLIA) for all routine blood work, urinalysis, strep tests, cultures, lead and other tests. For more complex tests, we utilize the HealthEast lab at St. Joseph’s hospitals and the Mayo Clinic laboratory.
In 2010 we implemented the Diopsys Visual Evoked Potential test (see their information on our Welcome page) to examine all children for visual disturbances that cannot be detected by routine physical examination alone (including amblyopia, which can lead to blindness).
