While Dr. Kalwani is away on maternity leave, Dr. Cannitelli and Dr. Yoon will be covering all patients. Dr. Kalwani is able to provide virtual visits at this time if requested. We welcome Dr. Yoon who trained at the University of Toronto and Hospital for Sick Children.
We will be focusing on keeping children up to date with their immunizations, sick visits and any concerns over the winter months.
Please email our office to book an appointment. As we are overwhelmed with phone calls, it will be a much easier and organized way to get everyone in quickly and safely. We have set aside specific times during the day to allow this so please be patient with us as we return all emails. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a fluid situation depending on the current status of COVID-19 in our community. A higher prevalence of the infection may change the back-to-school and daycare recommendations.
If you are concerned—please get tested. COVID-19 screening centers provide timely and accurate results for your child, and results are typically available online within 48-72 hours.
We will not be providing notes that state that your child is “okay to return to school or daycare”. The current public health recommendations are to isolate for an appropriate period of time and return when well or a negative COVID-19 test.
The Ministry of Health recommends against requiring doctor’s notes to clear students to return to school after suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Please refer to your local public health unit or school/daycare board for further direction and their policies on returning back to school or daycare. These policies will likely change as the school year progresses.
We will be updating the website and Facebook page when the flu shot is available this fall.
For those who like the Pediatree Vitamins…..a word from our pharmacy— they are now in stock!!
We have been ramping up our office visits and are prepared to see children for any visits by appointment only ( no walkins) . Appointments that were previously cancelled are now being rescheduled. We continue to separate the rooms and use only clean rooms for well children. We take precautions, control the flow of patients ( no waiting in the waiting area) and clean regularly. We have not had any of our patients become ill or hospitalized with coronavirus.
