We use Cathryn Tobin in Markham. She's amazing and her office staff is equally wonderful.

How old is the child in question? If they're not yet born, put them on the waiting list. If they're teeny tiny, mention it when you call. Pediatricians (most of whom are in high demand) prefer to take patients who are going to be with them the longest. We were lucky and our daughter was 9 months old at the time.

My kids are with Dr. Ho Yin Lau. He accepts newborns. May be possible to accept your 2mo.

Any recommendation?

- I tried to call the clinic in McCowan and Hwy 7. They are taking new patient BUT the doctor taking it is not fully registered (so probably someone who didn't complete the exams).
- Cathryn Tobin, who is next door is not taking any new patience.

We have been with Dr Telch since my dd was born (she's now 10). He is a fantastic doctor. Like, really really REALLY fantastic. Great with kids. Older gentleman and extremely knowledgeable.

He is at the Bridle Trail plaza at Kennedy and 7.

We are with Dr. Telch too and he is an excellent pediatrician. But the last time I checked, he wasn't accepting new patients. But it doesn't hurt to call and ask.

My son sees Dr. Jisha Thomas at the new Markham Pediatric Clinic. She's been great and I'd recommend her.

There's two physicians at the clinic. You can google their website to see which physician is accepting new patients.

Couldn't you ask your family doctor for a referral? I'd imagine it's easier to get in if you're sent by your GP.
