We are a specialty medical clinic,
working exclusively with child and adolescent:

Do you know a child struggling with:

  • learning?
  • achievement?
  • attention/concentration?
  • socializing/fitting in?
  • emotional well-being?

Success in learning, friendship and fitting in means EVERYTHING to a kid.

Office Policies

Please be aware that if you are 15 minutes late for your appointment, we will need to reschedule.

Please be aware that if you do not show up for your first appointment (i.e. no cancellation, no explanation), a new referral will be required. Similarly, if you cancel or are 15+ minutes late for 2 or more appointments, a new referral will be required.

We are committed to providing a safe, secure, and respectful environment for all patients and staff. We will not tolerate any verbal or physical aggression, harassment and/or rudeness.

All medication refills require a phone appointment or a faxed request from your pharmacy. To avoid the stress of running out of medication with no refills, please plan to get refills at least one week before the prescription runs out.

a. Dr.DeBruyne does not require both parents’ presence and/or consent to assess and/or treat your child; only one parent’s consent is required (unless a court order prevents this parent from medical decision-making).

b. A copy of the parents’ separation agreement is sometimes required

c. Dr.DeBruyne is not required to inform the non-present parent of the child’s visit.

d. Dr.DeBruyne does not review the child’s visit with the non-present parent.

e. Should the non-present parent wish to receive a copy of the child’s visit note, that parent may request a copy to be sent by confidential/encrypted email.


As each patient is unique, we triage incoming referrals on a case-by-case basis. Please note, we may require additional documentation (ex. questionnaires, reports, etc.) prior to scheduling a consultation with Dr.DeBruyne.
