COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some of these technologies are provided by the Province. Others have been provided by vendors like Google, or Apple to help make discussions with your care provider as easy as possible during these difficult times. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility if necessary, for a physical examination.

We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no video or audio tools are ever completely secure. There is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using video or audio communications tools. To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:

Understand that emails, calls, or texts you receive are not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room.

Use a private computer/device (i.e., not an employer's or third party's computer/device), secure accounts, and a secure internet connection. For example, using a personal and encrypted email account is more secure than an unencrypted email account, and your access to the Internet on your home network will generally be more secure than an open guest Wi-Fi connection.

You should also understand that electronic communication is not a substitute for in-person communication or clinical examinations, where appropriate, or for attending the Emergency Department when needed (including for any urgent care that may be required).

If you are concerned about using video or audio tools for virtual care, you can ask our office to arrange for you to visit a different healthcare provider or other health care center where you can be seen in person. However, please note that visiting a health care provider in person comes with a higher risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 and the possibility of spreading the virus.

By providing your information, you agree to let us collect, use, or disclose your personal health information through video or audio communications (while following applicable privacy laws) in order to provide you with care. In particular, the following means of electronic communication may be used (identify all that apply): email, videoconferencing (including Skype, Facetime, etc.), text messaging (including instant messaging), website/portal, OnCall.

A note to our patients. We have suspended all in-office visits at this time due to COVID 19. However, if you have an appointment currently booked with our office you will receive a call 2 days prior to that appointments. We will advise you how we will be able to proceed. Wishing you and your family safety and vitality during this challenging time.

If you need a renewal your prescriptions during the COVID-19 #stayathome period, please have your pharmacy fax your renewal request. Our fax number is 905-639-7647. Be well!

Update About Our Office During This Outbreak of Corona Virus : March 15, 2020

On the advice of the Ministry of Health we are changing our office protocols to ensure minimization of risk to our patients and our staff.

Starting the week of March 16, 2020 we will try to change as many patients visits as we can to virtual electronic visits. Initially most will be by phone. There are some patients who have already made arrangements to come to the office and, if they do, we will see them, once again minimizing risks by using frequent hand washing and minimized personal contact.

For the majority of scheduled patients we will set up visits through OnCall Health. One of the problems with phone visits is that each person requires individualized attention and some visits unexpectedly may take longer than others. We will make every effort to keep on schedule but at times we may be delayed.

Women’s Health

Unique Laser Therapy for Vaginal Dryness


Visit Komer Women Health Clinic

Dr. Komer’s Women’s Health Clinic has always been a cheerful caring clinic catering to the needs of women. The clinic continues to evolve. After delivering more than 12,000 babies and having a long career of gynecologic surgery, Dr. Komer has chosen to concentrate on his clinics. The Women’s Health Clinic carries out a full range of office gynecology. Each patient receives the benefits of The Komer Method which utilizes the philosophy of only optimal is acceptable.

The clinic is heavily involved in the counseling of menopause and hormone replacement therapy; it has now treated more than 13,000 menopausal women. Dr. Komer has carried out numerous clinical trials in this area of practice. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Michael D. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University and has trained medical students and residents on the latest information on menopause. He has lectured extensively to both the public and healthcare professionals about menopause and bio identical hormone replacement therapy.

Hormone disruption can lead to many women’s problems these include issues with periods, poor mood and decreased energy. Dr. Komer is an expert at solving these problems and caring for patients with these issues.

The Komer Women’s Health Clinic has always been an innovator of new therapies. There has been a great need for problems such as vaginal dryness, vaginal itching, vaginal burning, painful intercourse (dyspareunia) and bladder issues such as pain, urgency, frequency and stress incontinence (losing urine when coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising). Some of the women in the past have had partial success with past treatments but many women have so been left with inadequate results. Dr. Komer has now acquired one of the first lasers in Canada to treat these problems. He has evaluated the equipment that has recently been approved by Health Canada and has found the Komer Laser system to be far superior. He has trained with two top experts in the United States and is now offering this innovative and successful therapy to Canadian women.

But Dr. Komer and his wife Joan have carried out seven clinical trials on low sex drive in women. He had one of the largest groups in the world participating in the clinical trial on the new medication which is now available in the United States and hopefully soon will come to Canada. Dr. Komer has written treatment protocols published by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for hormone replacement therapy in women and for therapies to increase libido or low sex drive in women. He counsels and treats women for this very common and upsetting problem.
