OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
LMC, North America’s largest specialist care provider in diabetes and endocrinology, announced today that it will be opening its newest clinic in April 2017 to better serve the Ottawa region. The new LMC Ottawa clinic will be the practice home for four active Ottawa Endocrinologists: Dr. Nadia Malakieh, Dr. Timothy O’Leary, Dr. Patricia Peticca and Dr. Chetna Tailor. Endocrinologists are specialists who treat patients with conditions that result from hormone imbalances, including diabetes; thyroid, lipid, and menstrual disorders; polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS); osteoporosis and male hypogonadism. The new clinic will serve patients in Ottawa who are in need of high quality, specialist care in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism. All services will be completely free to patients and covered by OHIP. The new clinic will be located in Barrhaven at 4100 Strandherd Drive, Suite 208.
“It is very exciting to be working with LMC to launch this much-needed outpatient specialist clinic,” said Dr. Chetna Tailor. “The additional support and resources the clinic will provide will help to shorten wait times and improve access and quality of care for all those seeking specialist care in diabetes and endocrinology.”
The clinic will also serve as a “one-stop shop” for patients with diabetes by providing all the services they need under one roof. Patients will have access to free diabetes counselling with Certified Diabetes Educators, medication reviews with clinical pharmacists, foot exams with chiropodists and comprehensive eye exams with optometrists.
“Our goal at LMC is to provide patients with world-class specialist care that is comprehensive, coordinated and convenient,” says Mark Angelo, CEO of LMC. “Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists and allied health providers work together to proactively manage patients, prevent complications and help individuals control their diabetes so that it doesn’t control them.”
The clinic is scheduled to open Tuesday, April 25 and will operate five days a week. Patients interested in booking an appointment should ask their referring physician to contact LMC by phone at (613)-505-9704, by fax at (613)-505-9707, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.lmc.ca/referrals
