Take the stress out of being sick and see a doctor in your home

I love my doctor but, there are those days where the thought of sitting in a stuffy waiting room at my doctors office is the last place I want to be when baby and I are unwell. I have a lot of worrying thoughts that go through my mind – What if someone in the waiting room passes on a virus to my baby? How uncomfortable will we be if we have to wait two hours to see a doctor?

Until recently, I learned that there are doctors available in Durham to visit you in your home, for an appointment. This is a service that you need to bookmark on your phone because it will save you from a lot of worry when either you or your baby is sick and:

  • The weather is too challenging to take baby out
  • You don’t have access to transport during the day
  • Your usual doctor is not available or;
  • Like me, you’re worried about being stuck in a walk in clinic for an unknown amount of time

If this is something you would like to try, you will need to call early as appointments book quickly. To make an appointment, call the Durham Doctors House Call Service on (905) 619-6641. The Durham Doctors House Call Service is available to anyone in the Pickering, Ajax, Brooklin, Whitby, Oshawa, Courtice and Bowmanville areas. Office hours are from 9am to 9pm, Monday to Sunday.

Cost: This service is free with a valid OHIP card.
