Appointment - How do I make one?

Appointments – The “A,B,C’s”
Our office is committed to honouring everyone’s time equally
and operating clinic as close to ‘on time’ as possible when you come.
"A" Appointments can be made 3 ways:
                        1.  Email, using the "Contact Us" section of this website
                        2.  Phone: 807-468-3600 during posted office hours.
                        3.  Drop by the office location during office hours. 
"B" By stating the reason for appointment:
When requesting a clinic appointment, you are required to provide your “Reason for Visit”. 
This is not intended to be intrusive, but to assist in appropriately booking the clinic day...
Physicians review charts at the start of clinic each day based on your declared visit need,
preparing required documentation / information for your visit. 


Staff is authorized to assess the appropriate appointments based on:
1. Medical urgency e.g. Sudden onset of acute pain versus a blood pressure check.
2. Time Values
e.g. More than one medical concern may require more than one visit, 
                                        addressing the most urgent first.
3. Physician Necessity - e.g. Your inquiry may not require a direct visit with physician,
                                                         but  can be addressed by staff.


Staff is legally required to adhere to strict codes of confidentiality and is here

to facilitate your request with information and direction.
"C" Changing reason for appointment  
Should your appointment needs change, please advise staff in advance of your visit
 as it may require rescheduling.



~ The appointment you set was for a routine blood pressure check, but you have since developed a more serious concern, requiring a longer assessment time. 

~ The reason for your visit has resolved, but you keep the appointment anyway to inquire after a referral report from a specialist you saw recently…the report however has not been received by your doctor yet to review.

~ You bring additional people with you to be seen by the doctor, or seek to trade your appointment for theirs, anticipating that your physician will assess them. Your visit need and theirs may require a different assessment time. 
Other Ways To Help Your Doctor's Clinic Run Smoothly:
~ Please do not bring additional people to a booked appointment for assessment. 

 This will clearly delay clinic time and is not appreciated by patients who have booked after you,

or by you if it happens ahead of your scheduled visit...

~  Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
We have limited waiting room and parking space.  This helps us to achieve a respectful, private and personalized atmosphere for all of our patients...
~ Please do not bring companions along for your scheduled appointment,
Unless, of course, you require physical assistance, or your doctor has instructed that you do so...
