Rexdale Medical Centre is comprised of 9 family physicians to meet all your primary care needs.
Periodic Medical Exams
Many patients still believe that they need to have an annual health exam performed by their physician. In truth, the frequency of these exams depends on your age,gender, family medical history and individual medical history. Your physician at Rexdale Medical will be able to give you clear guidance as to how frequent you need a periodic medical examination.
All physicians at Rexdale Medical strongly encourage their patients to have periodic cancer prevention testing. Pap smears are recommended for all women ages 21 -70 every 3 years.

Many universities across North America are now recommending, if not requiring, that students are vaccinated against meningitis and meningococcal diseases. Meningococcal comes in many strains, including A, B, C, Y, and W-135.
Although meningitis and meningococcal disease are rare, there exist certain factors that can put you at higher risk. In the young adult population and particularly with university students, living in close quarters, such as student housing or residence, can increase the risk of transmission of disease.
Rexdale Medical Centre is pleased to offer meningitis vaccinations for all university-aged students.
Menveo covers four of the meningococcal strains. The vaccine is given in one dose, at a cost of $135.
Bexsero is the only vaccine currently available to that protects against the B strain. Bexsero is given in two doses, one month apart, at a cost of $135 per dose.

Podiatrists specialize in disorders of the foot and ankle and therefore are highly trained to examine for abnormalities of the lower extremity. Many times podiatrists are the first doctors to diagnose vascular disease, and neuropathy (numbness, burning, tingling, pain) in the lower extremities. For example, diabetes can cause both of these systemic disorders and by seeing a podiatrist, the feet, which are most affected by diabetes, can be cared for on a regular basis. Often a small problem can be diagnosed and treated at an early stage and helps prevent the condition from progressing to a more serious disorder.
We are pleased to have podiatrist, Dr. Ronald Klein join us every other Thursday afternoon. Dr. Klein will perform a complete foot exam and can recommend and make custom orthotics if necessary. He can also remove painful corns and calluses as well as manage difficult toenail infections and damaged toenails. There is a $ 45 charge which is not OHIP covered, although most private insurance plans will reimburse the visit fee. No referral is needed.
