Specialist Dr. Jocelyn Arrives in Ottawa

Published on August 1, 2011

As of 2012, Dr. Jocelyn  now practices in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

A shortage of pediatric specialists in eastern Ontario means children with suspected developmental disorders can wait more than a year to be diagnosed at the region's only provincially funded clinic.

But come September, children on the waiting list at the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre will have a second option through Dr. Leslie Jocelyn, a developmental pediatrician who's also a child psychiatrist.

From the Ottawa Citizen

To book an appointment with Dr. Jocelyn a physician's referral is required. Dr. Jocelyn's fax number is 613.233.9561.  For more information, please contact Dr. Jocelyn's assistant, Crystal, at crystal@emergingminds.ca  or by phone at 613.618.8715.
