Tavistock Physiotherapy Centre - pt Health
In response to COVID-19, pt Health is doing its part to help protect patients and our teams by modifying the delivery of services at our clinic. We remain open in select communities across Canada to treat patients requiring urgent care and to provide virtual care options.
For clinics that are providing in-person services, we have put in place active measures including enhanced hygiene practices, social distancing and pre-screening before anyone enters the clinic as per the Public Health Agency of Canada and continue to monitor federal and provincial colleges, to ensure our policies are aligned.
If you are feeling ill, have traveled outside of Canada in the past 14 days, or have come in contact with someone who is suspected to have COVID-19, please reach out to your local public health agency. If you need to reschedule an existing booking, please contact us by calling: 1 (888) 707-4410

Patient CoordinatorSpeaks: EnglishI am thrilled to be a part of PT Health, Tavistock clinic. I have a passion for animals and after a lengthy career in Animal Welfare I decided that it was time for a new challenge and help people in a different way. I have two wonderful children who keep me very busy with soccer, hockey and horseback riding. Our family enjoys spending quality time taking in the beauty of the outdoors and enjoying nature. Depending on the season some our favorite past times are camping, atv'ing, boating or snowmobiling. In my down time I can be found taking in some extra cuddles with my furry four legged companions or just going for a walk. I am looking forward to meeting, learning and growing with all of you.
