All fees are payable at the time of the visit by debit card, credit card (Visa, Mastercard, or American Express), or cash. Cheques are not accepted.

 

Accupuncture

Acupuncture treatments are not covered by OHIP, but, as Dr. Paul Liang is a licensed chiropractor and a member of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada, in certain circumstances, some insurance companies, such as Blue Cross, London Life and Workers’ Compensation, pay a portion of the cost, as for instance in car accidents.  For details, please check with your insurance company.
