Welcome to Our Clinic

ScotiaMed, located in the heart of Bedford, opened in 2006 becoming the first established walk in clinic in the community. Clinic co-founders, Dr. Michael Clory and Dr. Wayne Pickett, both emergency room physicians, saw first-hand the need of such a clinic in Bedford. The clinic provides family practice, urgent medical patient centered care and blood collection services by a friendly and professional staff in a convenient location that is wheelchair assessable and offers ample free parking. Our pride in our community where we live and work is evident in our ongoing sponsorship for various youth sports as well as our participation in high school co-op placement programs.
