No. KixCare offers direct access to a Pediatrician without the need for a referral, often within the same day. KixCare Pediatric Specialists are often available by self-referral within 1-2 days.
If you are unsure about which provider is right for you, please book a free visit with a KixCare Pediatrician who can refer you to the appropriate care.
We treat all kids and teenagers, from the ages of 0-18.
KixCare Pediatricians proudly offer primary and (non-life threatening) urgent care that is high-quality, safe, and accessible. You can use KixCare to address any health concern that you would typically visit a walk-in clinic for. These include:
Fever, Viral Illness, Otitis, Red Eyes
Chronic Cough, Asthma
Abdominal Pain, Constipation
Infant Feeding, Colic, or Digestion
Minor Injury, Concussion, Sprain, or Strain
Mental Health or Behavioural Issues
If a Pediatrician or Pediatric Specialist cannot help you virtually, we will make every effort to direct you to the appropriate in-person care for your kid.
KixCare visits are always attended by our expert-selected Pediatricians.
For Pediatric Specialist services, our community includes kids-focused mental health providers, concussion treatment specialists, sleep consultants, lactation consultants, dieticians & nutritionists, physiotherapists, speech-language pathologists, and more.
After booking an appointment, you will always be matched to a provider that is licensed to practice in your region.
KixCare doctors are equipped to write prescriptions and provide referrals for lab work, in-person care, or Pediatric Specialist services.
If you know the type of specialized care that your kid needs, you can book an appointment with a Pediatric Specialist without a referral. We are working to add more direct services through our platform every day!
We understand that family doctors may not always be available, so we welcome patients who need care outside of visits with their regular provider. We do not want to replace your trusted family doctor but hope to increase access to quality doctors for all Canadian kids!
