My goal is to ensure excellent, compassionate care for my patients, while providing them and their parents with the knowledge and educational resources that encourage a healthy lifestyle. 

I am a "Sick Kids Doc".  I did my Pediatric Residency at Sick Kids from 1992-1996, an Emergency Medicine Fellowshipfrom 1996-1999, then I became Emergency Staff for 19 years, during which time I completed a  Masters Degree in the of Science of Community Health. ‚Äč

As of July 1, 2017, I am "semi retired".  I will always love and be closely connected with Sick Kids:  my walls at the clinic are covered with Sick Kids literature from www.aboutkidshealth.ca.  Now I work 4 days a week at Golden Mile because...I love it! 

  • since GM is a Walk-in-CLinic I do not have a "practice" where I can "accept" patients and "be your child's pediatrician".  All children should be rostered with a Family Physician (to find a Family Physician  go to ontario.cahealthcareconnect; to find a Pediatrician go to cpso.on.ca>doctor search and enter postal code)
  • My role is to be available when your own doc cannot see your child
  • Since visit times are constrained by walk-in style of our clinic, complicated and ongoing concerns are referred by me to community Pediatrician colleagues ie behavior concerns
  • My website provides dates that I will be absent from the clinic at least 2 months ahead of time (where possible)
  • If I see a child who is very sick, I send them with a note to the Emergency Department.  On more than one occasion I have called 911 for urgent cases. 
  • Immunizations are to be done at your Family Doctor as part of a  "well baby visit' so  as a "walk-in" doctor I cannot provide this service; (however there may be exceptions on occasion) 
  • Referrrals: are to be done by your Family Doctor to ensure continuity of care
