Announcements re: COVID-19
Covid Vaccines – We encourage all our eligible patients to get a covid vaccine!
Currently, it is recommended to get the first vaccine offered to you when you are due. The current expert opinion is that there is no difference between the mRNA vaccines (Moderna & Pfizer) so you can take the one offered to you soonest.
We encourage our pregnant patients to get vaccinated with a Covid mRNA vaccine at any time, as pregnant women are at higher risk of serious illness due to Covid. Ask your OB provider if you have any questions about it.
Virtual Appointments – Most appointments are booked virtually initially. If your doctor determines you need to be seen in person, she will let you know the safest time it can be done and book for it with you.
Handout: Virtual Appointment Tips
We are conducting non-essential appointments virtually, at the direction of the Ontario Medical Association. We will do as many appointments by phone as possible; including for prescription renewals, regular follow up of your medical conditions, as well as for urgent “same day” concerns. If necessary, your doctor may ask you to come in for an in person appointment.
Please note; the same policy for cancelling appointments applies for virtual appointments as for in-person appointments. Please provide a full business day notice to cancel/reschedule your appointment to avoid incurring a fee. If your doctor is unable to reach you for your scheduled virtual appointment, a “no show” fee will be enforced.
Saturday Urgent Clinic (open 9-12) – as of March 2020 the Saturday clinic is by appointment only. Please do NOT “walk in”. CALL between 830 to 1000am for urgent issues, you will be given a virtual appointment, and brought in later in the morning if necessary.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!
