Our History

Our mission began in 1991 when we founded the North York Treatment Centre, and we have only continued to grow. Our Mississauga Treatment Centre was founded in 1998, followed by our Oakville Treatment Centre in 2009.

Doctor and Patient


Our Doctors and staff are among the most experienced in North America.
Our clients have a wide range of choices for pharmacies.

We have an onsite pharmacy in Oakville and we work closely with many other pharmacies in Mississauga and Oakville.

Clients have specific appointment times. This eliminates uncertainty and helps minimise unpleasant waits. It also helps protect you in the Age of Covid.
We are open early and late- to accommodate clients' busy schedules.
Medical services are covered by OHIP.
