OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Diabetes–LMC, North America’s largest specialist care provider in diabetes and
endocrinology, announced today that it will be opening its newest clinic
in April 2017 to better serve the Ottawa region. The new LMC Ottawa
clinic will be the practice home for four active Ottawa
Endocrinologists: Dr. Nadia Malakieh, Dr. Timothy O’Leary, Dr. Patricia
Peticca and Dr. Chetna Tailor. Endocrinologists are specialists who
treat patients with conditions that result from hormone imbalances,
including diabetes; thyroid, lipid, and menstrual disorders; polycystic
ovarian syndrome (PCOS); osteoporosis and male hypogonadism. The new
clinic will serve patients in Ottawa who are in need of high quality,
specialist care in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism. All services
will be completely free to patients and covered by OHIP. The new clinic
will be located in Barrhaven at 4100 Strandherd Drive, Suite 208.

“It is very exciting to be working with LMC to launch this much-needed
outpatient specialist clinic,” said Dr. Chetna Tailor. “The additional
support and resources the clinic will provide will help to shorten wait
times and improve access and quality of care for all those seeking
specialist care in diabetes and endocrinology.”

The clinic will also serve as a “one-stop shop” for patients with
diabetes by providing all the services they need under one roof.
Patients will have access to free diabetes counselling with Certified
Diabetes Educators, medication reviews with clinical pharmacists, foot
exams with chiropodists and comprehensive eye exams with optometrists.

“Our goal at LMC is to provide patients with world-class specialist care
that is comprehensive, coordinated and convenient,” says Mark Angelo,
CEO of LMC. “Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists and allied
health providers work together to proactively manage patients, prevent
complications and help individuals control their diabetes so that it
doesn’t control them.”

The clinic is scheduled to open Tuesday, April 25 and will operate five
days a week. Patients interested in booking an appointment should ask
their referring physician to contact LMC by phone at (613)-505-9704, by
