Facing our Fears!

The Maple Kidz Clinic Staff faced their fears this past weekend by stepping up onto the ledge of the CN Tower and doing the Edge Walk!


Welcome to Maple Kidz Clinic!

The Maple Kidz Clinic was established in Maple in 2007. Our clinic provides primary pediatric care as well as consultations to family physicians and midwives. Dr. Umberto Cellupica and Dr. Saba Merchant are also faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Toronto and maintain a commitment to teaching medical students and residents. Our philosophy is to provide excellent and up-to-date pediatric care in a kid-friendly environment.

We practice family-centered care and parents are encouraged to participate actively in the management of their child's health care. Our clinic is located in a medical building that has essential ancillary services such as X-ray, Ultrasound, Laboratory, Physiotherapy, Orthotics and a Pharmacy. Patient files are maintained in the form of Electronic Medical Records. We also have electronic access to test results at the Hospital for Sick Children and many other community hospitals and laboratories.

If your child is not a Maple Kidz Clinic Patient but requires a pediatric consultation, please have your family physician fax a referral request to our clinic at (905) 303-3035.

Cancellation / No show Policy

As of January 9, 2019, you must email appointments@maplekidz.ca to cancel or reschedule your scheduled appointment or speak to reception.
*some exceptions may apply

At Maple Kidz Clinic, we strive to accommodate all of our patients' needs. Typically we have fewer available time slots as compared to the demand for these appointments. For this reason, it is a real shame when an appointment slot goes unused because of a late cancellation or because someone does not show up for their appointment. Recently, we have experienced an increase in no-show appointments and for this reason, it has become necessary to implement a Cancellation / No Show Policy.

We kindly ask that you provide at least one full (ie. 24 hours) business day's notice for a cancelled appointment. If the appointment occurs on a Monday at 10 am, we ask that you cancel no later than the previous Friday by 10 am. Similarly, if the appointment is on a Tuesday following a Holiday Monday, the cancellation must be made by the prior Friday at the latest to avoid a cancellation charge.

Regular appointments: $50
Physicals / Medication follow up: $75
Consultation: $150
Consultation follow up: $75
