specific, Non-urgent medical issue?
As we know it can sometimes be inconvenient to visit your physician in clinic, we try to offer other convenient alternatives:

urgent Medical issue?
Your physician and clinic reserves appointments for patients with urgent, but not emergency, needs. For emergency, debilitating or rapidly changing symptoms, call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room instead. Learn more here.
NOTE: Booking an urgent appointment unnecessarily means other patients have their care delayed. In general, it is not appropriate to book an urgent appointment for:
❌Renewing long-standing medications ❌Paperwork and note requests ❌Long-standing periodic injections ❌Screening for diseases for which you have no symptoms ❌Long-standing unchanging medical symptoms
See our guide about when to book an urgent appointment here. We thank you to kindly use good judgment.
check-up without a specific medical issue?
(a.k.a. physicals, check-ups, periodic health exams)
Regular appointments are recommended for newborns, infants, and children at the 1, 2, 4, and 8 week, and 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 month milestones.
Otherwise healthy individuals don’t always need annual physicals, and these check-ups can occasionally do more harm than good. Please read this Choosing Wisely Canada document for more information.
