About The Pediatric Clinic

The Pediatric Clinic is a consultative clinic, accessed by physician referral only.
To access services, a child must:

  • Have access to a family or referring doctor, who will support and maintain services during and after Pediatric Clinic involvement ends.
  • Be an infant, child, or adolescent, aged 0-18
  • Have an up-to-date (valid) Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) coverage
    • Fees for service will apply without valid coverage
    • Refunds will be provided with provision of an up-to-date health card within 6 months of an appointment
  • Have a referring problem within the clinic’s scope of practice.
    • Please contact the clinic with specific questions or concerns
  • Agree to the Terms and Conditions of accessing the Clinic
    • Your attendance at an appointment will be taken as your agreement to all terms outlined

The Pediatric Clinic runs during the day (9-4), typically Monday through Friday. Availability may vary on occasion.

The Pediatric Clinic is not an urgent care facility – if your child(ren) require immediate medical attention, please contact your family doctor or attend your local Emergency Department.

Involvement in the Pediatric Clinic DOES NOT REPLACE the care your child(ren) receive from their primary care practitioner / family doctor.

Access to Pediatric Clinic Staff may be limited / unavailable during periods in which the Pediatrician is off-site. Should you have concerns about your child during this time, please contact your family physician and/or go to your local Emergency Department.

The Pediatric Clinic is a year-round teaching and training site for health professional students and residents at McMaster University. At most visits, your child(ren) may be seen initially by a medical trainee, under close supervision from the Pediatrician.  If you do not want your child to be seen by a student or trainee, please contact the office at least one week in advance of your child’s appointment, so that we can make the necessary scheduling changes to accommodate this request on the day of the visit.
