Vancouver Pediatric and Allergy Centre


Dear Patients and Families,

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to make you aware of measures our office is taking to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and doctors. We strive to continue providing our community with ongoing service through these difficult times.

Starting MONDAY, MARCH 23RD, our contact information will change.

For Drs. Joanne Yeung, Sharon Yong, Cristina Bigg and Elizabeth de Klerk, please call: (236) 888-7706 Monday-Friday 830am-500pm.

For Dr. Persia Pourshanazari and Dr. Sarah Freedman, please call: (236) 885-4055 Monday-Friday 830am-500pm.

Please read the following carefully:

Until further notice, our office will be closed to all non-essential visits. If you have an upcoming appointment, rest assured you will be contacted and offered your same appointment via telehealth. You may also choose to reschedule your appointment to a later date. We continue to accept referrals from our primary care/family physician colleagues, and will offer telehealth or later-date appointments as above. Urgent matters will be assessed on a case by case basis. 

For those visits deemed essential, our physicians will remain available in office with limited hours, with measures in place to ensure social distancing. Should you require an in-office appointment, you will be provided with detailed instructions regarding these measures. 

Should you, the patient or accompanying caregiver have any history of recent travel or concerns around possible COVID-19 infection, or should you develop symptoms prior to your in-office appointment, please DO NOT come to our office. Please cancel your appointment (see instructions below), and reschedule.

We sincerely thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
