Special Notice

For DFW Cook Children’s patients:
Starting March 1st, 2018 all Cook’s Clinics will switch to a new medical records software program.  It should be fun for this old brain. It will have a lot of good things but will take time to convert to the new system.  Your old access to your patient Portal will no longer work and you will have to register for “My Chart” in the new Epic software.  One good thing is that we can send in prescriptions for ADHD medications to the pharmacy without having to come pick up and hand carry it to them.   Yeah!  And your first visit you will have to enter some information that was already entered before.  Yuck. Sorry.   Bear with us… we are trying hard to make this happen smoothly.
