HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

Routine visits are scheduled for 10 minutes and complete

  examinations for 20 minutes. 

 

If you have multiple issues, please focus on your main   problem. Our physicians will do our best to address all your   concerns efficiently. However, if they feel your concern is complex and requires more time, you may be asked to return for another appointment.

HOW DO I GET PRESCRIPTION REFILLS?

Please book an appointment with your physician to renew  your prescriptions before they run out. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing some prescriptions in association with a phone visit.


Physicians typically write prescriptions to run out at a time when they would like to reassess your condition and ensure safe and effective care.


If your prescriptions run out before your appointment, please ask your pharmacist for a short-term, emergency refill.

HOW DO I FIND OUT MY TEST RESULTS?

Please book an appointment with your physician to review test results. Our office assistants are unable to reveal test results by phone request. 


While we attempt to contact all patients with abnormal results, please do not assume that no news is good news. We encourage patients book an appointment 7-10 days after any investigations to discuss results. 

NO-SHOWS / CANCELLATIONS


To improve access to our physicians, if you wish to cancel your appointment, please call at least 24 hours beforehand.


There will be a fee for no shows/late shows/late cancellations ($40 for 10 minute appointments, $80 for 20 minute appointments). Late shows may be re-scheduled for a later time or another day.
