I hold a medical degree from Queen’s University Belfast, UK (2008). I trained as a family physician in picturesque Cornwall, England. After family medicine training, I pursued a Master’s in Global Health and Development (University College London, UK 2014).

“I came to Dr. McCullagh-Cheung in regards to my trip to South East Asia. She was very thorough and detailed indicating the different diseases in the countries I was visiting, prevention methods, and the right medication and vaccination to receive. From this, I was also able to receive my vaccinations through her."
Stay tuned! For your convenience, we are partnering with 18 Whole Health pharmacies across the province (Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga, Oakville, Niagara, London, Ottawa). This means that after you have your virtual consult, you would visit one of our partners to pick up any travel health prescriptions and receive shots for an additional fee ($20 for one injection, $35 for multiple injections). The benefit of going to a partner pharmacy is the peace of mind that they keep travel medications and vaccines in stock and routinely administer vaccines, so you don't need to worry about multiple trips to the pharmacy.
Although travel medicine is not covered under OHIP, many extended health insurance plans will provide reimbursement for travel vaccines and medications. If you have a health spending account, this can be used to cover the cost of the doctor's visit itself.
