Dear valued patients,

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we have restricted in-person visits to high-risk medical conditions or urgent dermatologic concerns striving to provide quality medical care while attempting to minimize virus spread.

If you have an upcoming appointment you will be contacted by a member of our team to arrange your appointment with Dr. Shukla by telephone to help manage and triage your concern, virtually via appointment through Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) or other virtual platform, or reschedule when things settle. If you have an emergency medical condition we will see you after appropriate screening has been done.

New patients can be seen virtually or triaged via phone as described by phone after being referred by another physician. If interested in a virtual aesthetic or skincare consultation please connect with us.

To arrange a virtual visit please call or email for details (905-524-1712 or

In order to proceed with an OTN appointment and/or virtual appointment you will need the following:

1. Computer or tablet with a camera
2. Email address
3. Patience :) as there can be glitches.

We sincerely thank our patients who have been very receptive to our calls to make the best arrangements for them given the circumstances.

Stay safe!
