What is a Respiratory Clinic?
The respiratory clinics are for patients with acute respiratory symptoms lasting less than 2 weeks, such as sore throat, runny nose, cough, congestion, and earaches who feel they need to be seen by a doctor and not emergency care. These clinics are for those that would normally see their family doctor/primary care provider or walk-in clinic for these types of symptoms. They are staffed by a physician and nurse.
These clinics are not designed for those with chronic respiratory health issues such as COPD, asthma,cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea, etc.
