We are located in Oilers Ambulatory Clinic, located on the second floor on the north side of the Stollery Children’s Hospital. From the 112th street entrance walk straight towards the elevators and go to the second floor. The clinic is located in 2E within the Edmonton Oilers blue and orange painted entrance.
Typical appointments last one to two hours, so please come prepared. Bring your medications, inhalers and any devices with you. During the appointment we will review your family and medical information.
A physician exam may be required in some circumstances as certain physical characteristics can suggest the diagnosis of a respiratory condition. If required, a pediatric respirologist will perform an examination similar to ones performed by your family physician. Additionally, a breathing test may be done to help with diagnosing a condition or checking how well the asthma treatment is working.
During this time you may see several different professionals including: a pediatric respirologist, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, respiratory therapist or medical residents/students. We may determine referrals to other specialists (such as ear nose and throat, sleep, or allergist and gastroenterologist) are required and if so those referrals will be arranged.
