  • If you have travelled please quarantine for 14 days prior to your appointment.
  • If you or your child are sick, do not come to the office, use the contact us tab on this website to send us a message.
  • If you are 10 minutes late for your booked appointment, the Dr will not see you. Please use the contact us tab to reschedule your appointment.

We apologise for the inconvenience as we endeavour to keep everyone safe during these un precedented times and have to adhere to these strict guidelines.  

Each appointment is booked to allow for patient flow, we will try our best to stay on time and cannot accommodate patients that are more than 10 minutes late.

*******WE HAVE FLU SHOTS *******Use the contact us tab to send us a message  we will get back to you with an appointment for your flu shot. Remember 5yrs and under only.  

This year flu shots will be by appointment only for children 5 years and under. Your local pharmacy is administering flu vaccines to 5/6yrs and over.  We have been assured here is plenty of supply, it is just taking time for Public Health to deliver it to us so watch here for supply availability. We cannot return calls asking when and how to get a flu shot.

DO NOT COME TO THE OFFICE UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT.

DUE TO COVID-19 

WALK IN CLINIC IS CANCELLED – IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK, DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC. PLEASE USE THE CONTACT US TAB HERE ON THE WEBSITE, SEND US A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF THE SICKNESS WITH A NUMBER WE CAN REACH YOU AND A DR WILL RETURN YOUR CALL.  IF IT CANNOT BE RESOLVED BY PHONE, AN APPOINTMENT MAY BE GIVEN.

SCHOOL/DAY CARE NOTES:  If your child is sent home from school/daycare because they are sick or have symptoms of illness, our Dr’s cannot provide return to school notes.  We do not have Covid 19 tests in our office therefore cannot give a note stating that it is safe for the child to return to school.

  Grade 7 Vaccines (Menactra, Hep B, HPV): We will not be doing these vaccines until the spring 2021.  Please check this page in the New Year for Information.  We are unable to respond to the abundance of messages asking for information and appointments at this time.

FAQs

Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, phones are answered from 9.45am – 4pm.

We have daily walk in hours , see the schedule on our walk in page and come in during the times posted.

On weekends, the on call doctor is posted on our website and answering machine.

If it is an Emergency, go directly to your nearest Hospital Emergency Department

Call your pharmacy, they may have repeats still available, if not, ask them to fax a repeat request to us.  

The doctor will fill out the request and fax it back to the pharmacy unless the patient needs to be seen, in this case, we will call you to book an appointment. There may be a charge for this service.

It can take a few days for us to provide this to the parent/patient only.  It can be picked up or mailed to your home address, please contact us with your request.

A referral from your family physician or pediatrician is required by fax to book an appointment with one of our specialists. Appointments are sent to the referring doctor.

Send a message to us using the Medical Advice form under the Private Services tab and we will forward your question to the nurse or doctor.  Please note, this is not covered by OHIP and there may be a charge.  Often you will receive a call back to book an appointment as many conditions need to be seen or listened to for a diagnosis and/or treatment advice. (eg: breathing & coughing, bleeding and skin issues)

Some forms require the patient to have been seen recently, please check the form and book an appointment for a physical if necessary, (eg. blood pressure, height & weight is requested on the form).

It may take a couple of weeks to complete forms, make sure you have filled in the patients name and demographics before sending it to us by fax, mail or drop off at reception, be sure to include a number that we can reach you at when it is ready for pick up.

Many forms are not covered by OHIP, check the un-insured services page on our website or contact us for cost.

Annual Physical: Our pediatricians are often booked a few months in advance, especially for those popular after school appointments so please plan ahead.

For non-urgent appointments we can be booking two or three weeks ahead.

Of course, if your child is sick or the condition cannot wait, come in during the times posted for our daily walk in or weekend schedule.

If it is an Emergency go directly to your nearest Hospital Emergency Department or call 911

You have received a service that was not covered by OHIP. See our uninsured services page on the website.

The patients (MOH OHIP) health card is not valid, it may have expired or is inactive. You need to go to Service Ontario or call the number on the back of the green OHIP card

We endeavour to return all calls in a timely manner, however; often bad reception from mobile phones, inaudible (speaking to quietly, background noise, not leaving a clear phone number or name) prevents us from returning calls. 

Sometimes it can take a few days for us to compile information or get the answers needed.  If you have not received a return call in 2 days, please call again or send a message using the contact us tab on the website.
