Virtual Appointments – Your doctor may conduct the appointment by phone or by videoconference.

Handout: Virtual Appointment Tips

We are deferring non-essential in person appointment 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”, please CALL prior to arrival. Phone lines will be open at 8:30am.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

This information may change as we gather new information. We will post updates on our website and Instagram as we have them.
