Dr Dina, may I ask you a question?

Yes, but please be aware that, online (via website, email, or social media), physicians in Canada are prohibited from answering specific health inquiries, or questions regarding a person, or person’s current state of health, or treatment or diagnosis of that person. The information we can responsibly provide online are general health and wellness guidelines and knowledge.  These guidelines are in keeping your best interests, and are set forth by Canada’s College of Physicians and Surgeons.

IMPORTANT: if you have a question about a current state of health or medical condition, whether for yourself or a child in your care, PLEASE CONSULT A PHYSICIAN IN PERSON AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

I love providing health and parenting information online, however, due to the importance with proper diagnosis of any health situation – physicians are not permitted to share “medical advice”, nor would it be prudent to do so.

Can we throw away our masks now?

I have been quite open about my concern for the asymptomatic spread of COVID-19. I have seen many patients and family members get COVID, despite no confirmed case exposure. I suspected a ton of asymptomatic spread. I have gone so far as to say I think 70-80% of COVID infected individuals are asymptomatic, and I still believe this to be true.

Ingrown Fingernails – Everything Parents Need to Know

Ingrown fingernails occur when the nail grows into the layer of skin around it. If the nail appears to be pushing into the skin or curving downward, it may be an ingrown nail.

When will kids get the vaccine?
