Our clinic is located at 381 Kent Street, Suite 4000 (4th Floor) in the Kent Medical building, in Centertown, Ottawa. The building is on Kent, between James and Gilmour (Larger intersections: Between Somerset and Gladstone).
There is a paid parking lot right at the building, however the surrounding streets (Kent St, James St and Gilmour St) have metered parking up to 2 hours that is cheaper than the building parking. The street parking costs approximately $3 per hour. Please ensure that your parking payment goes beyond just the length of the appointment to account for time to process payment, book your follow-up, etc. The “PayByPhone” app is a convenient way to add more time to your parking if needed without having to go back to your car.
We are not responsible for any parking tickets incurred for any reason (e.g as result of appointments running late).
Our clinic is generally open an weekdays, Monday to Thursday. The clinic is usually closed on Fridays and weekends. Reception hours are Monday to Thursday from 9:30am to 5pm. Please note that reception hours can vary from day to day, so if you are coming in to pick up supplements or for any other reason outside of a scheduled appointment, please ensure that you have been in touch with our receptionist to arrange for a specific time.

We want to be respectful of the time that each practitioner sets aside for your appointment. Last minute cancellations can be very disruptive to our schedule, and we want to be considerate to patients who really need to be seen. As such, we have a cancellation policy in effect.
We require 2 full business days notice for cancellations. If you cancel with less than 2 full business days of an appointment, you will still be billed the FULL fee for the visit. For example, if you have an appointment on Tuesday at 10am, you must contact us no later than 10am on the Friday before the appointment.
Consideration may be given to emergencies and other unforeseen circumstances, solely at our discretion.
If you repeatedly book and cancel appointments even if it is within the allowed time for the cancellations, it is at the practitioners discretion to refuse to allow any further bookings. Please understand that it is disruptive to our schedules to have frequent cancellations, so please ensure at the time of booking that you can commit to the appointment time.
Appointments cannot be cancelled online. If you need to cancel or re-book your appointment, please call the clinic at 613-695-8482 or email email@example.com
