Preparing for your visit

Preparing for your visit


What to bring to each appointment:

Please bring a valid OHIP card to every appointment.

If you haven't already done so, please ensure that we have a copy of your immunization record and sign a release to transfer a copy of your medical records from your previous physicians.

Please bring an up to date list of your medications (your pharmacy can print that out for you).

Missed appointments:

48 hrs notice is required to cancel/reschedule an appointment. Patients will be billed $80 for every missed standard appointment and $180 for every missed complete physical or counselling appointment, unless the clinic is notified 48 hrs in advance.

What not to bring:

We have immunocompromised patients, seniors, pregnant women and newborns who are at risk if exposed to preventable infectious diseases. Many viruses and bacteria can be spread via direct and indirect physical contact or breathing the secretions of infected individuals.

Please advise our staff if your symptoms include fever, cough, rash, lethargy, joint pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, head ache, neck stiffness.

Immunization and infection control:

As a family physician, I strongly encourage everyone to keep their immunizations up to date and to immunize their infants and children. Vaccines prevent serious illness and death. We protect each other, by herd immunity, when we are all immunized. For information about vaccine-preventable illnesses and immunization schedules, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Health's web site: http://www.health.gov.on.ca/english/public/pub/immun/immunization.html

In the spirit of patient-centered care, I respect your personal health choices. However, if you or your children are unimmunized against measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), pertussis, chicken pox, polio or certain types of meningitis, you will be asked not to enter the clinic if there is a local outbreak of one of those diseases. Incubation periods can last several weeks and you may not know that you are infected. During an infectious disease outbreak, unimmunized patients with concerning symptoms will be asked to present to the closest emergency department or to CHEO. Our clinic will use the Public Health Agency of Canada's disease control guidelines, updates from Ottawa Public Health, and PHAC FluWatch to track infectious disease outbreaks.
