Because a normally developing child is consistently changing, some mental health issues can lie in plain sight.
Our Pediatric Care team includes:

What does a mental health expert do ?

If you notice any of the behaviours below, a Pediatrician can perform an assessment, provide treatment suggestions and schedule follow-up appointments for further evaluation and care. If necessary, your pediatrician may refer your child to a mental health expert, which you can book through KixCare. Our psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors and social workers can diagnose, treat and set up regular follow-up appointments to support you and your child and monitor changes in behaviour and/or family dynamics.
Parents should look out for these behaviours:

Absolutely amazing experience! Same day appointment. The Dr was super patient, kind and helpful. Our daughter wasn't feeling well and we kept trying to call to book an appointment with her pediatrician, thank goodness for KixCare! So glad we found this place.

I had a great experience with KixCare and Dr. Kadar. My son was ill and needed to see a healthcare professional ASAP but his pediatrician didn't have any appointments available until weeks later, even though it was an emergency. I tried KixCare and got an appointment the same day. Dr. Kadar was very knowledgeable and informative and gave me plenty of opportunities to express my concerns and ask questions. We will definitely be using this service again, highly recommend!

What an excellent experience! We were able to get an appointment very quickly. From start to finish, I was impressed with the communication and reminders for our appointment. Dr. Sadana was absolutely lovely and is so professional. He took his time with us and I really appreciate that. I wish we were in the Ottawa area because I would love to have him as our pediatrician. I'm so glad you offer such a wonderful service and have already recommended KixCare to other moms. Thank you so much.

Such a wonderful program to have access to! It was easy to make an appointment, followed up with text & email confirmation and reminders. We even had someone call us to ensure we received the link to our virtual appointment and that we were not experiencing any technical issues. Dr. Fahad Masud (a pediatrician at CHEO) was on time, very friendly, and really took the time to understand our concerns and provide a thorough treatment plan. I couldn't be happier!

KixCare deserves all the praise. They have been instrumental in having my toddler seen by a professional and courteous pediatrician in a timely manner twice now. They have come in so handy at a time when my daughter’s own pediatrician couldn’t see her quickly enough, and have saved us a couple unnecessary visits to the emergency room. Love KixCare and our family is very grateful to this team!

What is KixCare?

No. KixCare offers direct access to a Pediatrician without the need for a referral, often within the same day. KixCare Pediatric Experts 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;

    • Vomiting, Diarrhea;

    • Abdominal Pain, Constipation;

    • Rash, Dermatology;

    • Infant Feeding, Colic, or Digestion;

    • Minor Injury, Concussion, Sprain, or Strain;

    • Mental Health or Behavioural Issues;

    • Developmental Issues;

    • Academic Performance;

    • Headache.

If a Pediatrician or Pediatric Expert 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 Expert 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!
