Walk-in Clinic Open

Monday through Friday

9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Saturday - clinic closed

Sundays - surgical admissions only

We are currently experiencing heavy patient volumes in our walk-in clinic, resulting in excessively long wait times.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and we encourage all prospective patients to submit their Medical Information Questionnaire for pre-screening instead of attending the clinic.

All medical information is reviewed by Shouldice Surgeons within 2-3 business days, at which time patients will be notified if a follow-up examination at our clinic is required.

Please click on the "arrange an exam" button above to access the Questionnaire.
