News and Updates
We are closely following guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada, which has determined the current risk of transmission of COVID-19 in Canada to be low. However, as a precaution, we ask the following patients reschedule as to avoid unnecessary risk to other families in the clinic. We have removed all the toys in the clinic and encourage you to bring your own. We are also offering telehealth - please inquire about if you feel that this would be suitable for your child's appointment
