OUR STORY & MISSION
Established in 2003, Carling Respiratory Services has been serving the Ottawa area & neighbouring communities for more than 15 years. Our clinic was the first to implement pulmonary function testing outside of a hospital setting allowing for expedited testing of patients. Since then, we have expanded our services and grown our team of respirologists to better serve our patients & keep up with our community's growing needs.
Our mission is to provide evidence-based medical care for our patient's respiratory diseases. Our clinic provides a wide array of services and expertise to best care for patients' complete lung health.
New referral requests are assessed regularly to ensure rapid assessments for patients that need urgent consultations.
Urgent referrals are assessed within 7 days based on indication.
These are unprecedented times that are very stressful; however your respiratory health remains our main priority. In keeping with our clinic mission, we vow to continue caring for our community & providing a high standard of care to our patients with respiratory conditions.
Thus, our clinic has adapted & implemented several safety measures to ensure we remain available & able to care for our patients during this difficult time. These measures are in keeping with current Ontario Public Health recommendations & serve to keep our patients and staff safe.

Please read carefully prior to your appointment
Patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms over the phone prior to appointments. This allows us to assess & confirm a low risk of COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all our patients.
Once you arrive & park your car, please call the clinic to "check-in" & await further instructions. Our staff will call you once they are ready for your testing.
For patients arriving by other modes of transportation, please call once you arrive at the clinic lobby & await further instructions.
Our waiting room has designated markers to accommodate physical distancing for those unable to wait in their vehicle.
Your temperature will be checked upon arrival.
Please bring your own mask & wear it at all times while in the clinic.
Only the patient receiving testing will be allowed in the clinic; unless a translator is required.
Please use hand sanitizer on arrival & upon departure; several sanitizer stations have been installed in our clinic.

Safety Measures in our Clinic
What safety measures have we implemented?
Our staff will have all necessary Personal Protective Equipment to ensure patient safety & their own. This includes mask, gown, gloves & eye protection.
Testing appointments have been spaced out to ensure adequate time for appropriate cleaning & disinfection of equipment according to published recommendations.
Equipment will be cleaned using medical grade disinfectant products that are virucidal (eliminates viruses) & bactericidal (eliminates bacteria).
Multiple state-of-the-art Air Purifying Systems have been implemented throughout our clinic. These systems:
Use Super HEPA filters to capture airborne pathogens & particles, and
Implement UV light technology to sterilize pathogens.
In combination, the above implemented measures reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. We ask that you follow these procedures closely to maintain a low risk of spreading the virus.
