At this time, there are uncertainties about the date that we will open for regular appointments.  The Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health has stated that all regulated health professionals are to avoid any non-essential or elective, in-person services, until further notice.  If you have appointments scheduled for the month of April, we will be cancelling them and contacting you by email at a later date, when we’re given the go-ahead to resume practice.  We are continuing to monitor email and voice mail for immediate needs and product refills.  Keep well and we’ll keep in touch.

We are communicating with you to inform you of our decision to close HealthSpan Wellness Clinic until April 6, 2020 due to ongoing concerns and federal recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please be assured that we are available in the interim via:
General Info/front desk:  OR 905-873-8729

We will also be checking voice mail regularly to ensure patient communication about current needs, urgent care requested, or future appointments.

Dr. Fountain and Vij Richards are available for phone consultations and video conferencing during this time.  Dr. Amelia Fratnik will be accessible only for urgent requests based on level of care required.

If you are in need of dispensary product refills over the next 3 weeks, please email us or order online at with free shipping for orders over $100.

We are committed to your care and community safety and obligations at this time of unprecedented changes.

We will be in touch with you through email or phone contact to reschedule your appointments for the future.

Thank you for your commitment to community safety and care.  Please use this time to reflect on your health, self care, and needs amongst those who may be requiring advanced medical care due to this pandemic viral situation.

Here are some recommended resources for assistance for those that are experiencing difficulty at this time:

We are here for you and if we stick together, then the spread of this virus will end sooner so we can carry on through our regular activities- including your health care visits at HealthSpan.

Please contact us for any concerns or questions- we will be here for you.

Take care, wash your hands, and use this time wisely for your health.
