Holiday Season Note 2020/2021
I will be away from my office for my own Christmas Holidays from Wednesday December 23, 2020 until Tuesday January 5, 2021. If you need help/support, please reach out to your own Family Physician. If you are having an Emergency, please call 911 or go to an ER.
Please note that I have been receiving HUGE amounts of email from my patients/parents. Please know that:
It is absolutely necessary for you to be ON TIME for your appointments with Dr. Goldade. In fact, we ask that you come 15 mins BEFORE your appointment time to check in and get the correct demographics. If you are late, Dr Goldade may be unable to see you.
We are currently open for In-Person Visits during COVID-19, and are following Alberta Health Services protocol to ensure our space is safe and clean. I am also offering Virtual Visits, although I do prefer to see you In-Person if you are comfortable, especially new patients!
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, everything/everyone is rather topsy turvy regarding medical services in the province. You may have left messages for me, expect a reply from me in a timely fashion, or request an urgent appointment, but given that I am the Section Chief of Community Paediatrics, there may be other / more pressing matters I will need to attend to regarding the Pandemic during the next few months as we are in the midst of COVID-19.
Please please be patient, and I'll try to get to your requests as soon as I can.
When contacting me or the office, please please be brief and concise. And always ... be Kind!
Welcome! I am a Community Paediatrician who has been practicing in Calgary for over 25 years. I am passionate about children and their beautiful families. My goal is to help children & teens thrive regarding their physical and mental health.
Please note that I do not do Primary Care, which means I will only see your child for a consultation and then (perhaps) 2-3 more visits. I am not your child's regular doctor. Please refer to more information under the Office/Patient Services, and F.A.Q sections.
I do see new patients, but only by referral from a Family Physician.
I request that you please be kind and respectful to my staff. Everyone is truly doing their best to be helpful. If you are rude or swear, this will be noted in your child's file and you may well be asked to leave my practice and find another Physician.
Remember when calling into the office or emailing, please keep your questions, messages and requests brief. The phones can get really busy and it could make it hard for others to get through.
