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

We apologize for the inconvenience, and we encourage all prospecitve patients to complete our Medical Questionnaire instead of attending the clinic.

Please click on the "arrange an exam" button above to access the Questionnaire. All Questionnaires are reviewed by Shouldice Surgeons.

You will receive a response to your medical intake information within 2-3 business days , at which time you will be notified if a examination at our clinic is required.
