Contact information for existing patients

EMERGENCIES

If this is an emergency, please visit your nearest emergency room or contact your local Emergency Services at 9-1-1. 

URGENT INQUIRIES

Please note that we are not able to reliably satisfy urgent requests received by email, fax, or phone, particularly for medical issues or questions.

Instead, it may require up to several business days for us to respond. Should you need something addressed or answered more urgently, please book an urgent appointment with us or visit a walk-in clinic or urgent care center.


Administrative Questions

We try to supply answers to most administrative questions on our website. This helps us shift resources towards patient care, to respond to medical questions faster, and to develop better ways of operating.

Patient resources are available here and common questions have been copied below. We would appreciate you taking a moment to review these resources prior to contacting us.


How to contact us directly

EMAIL

Our preference is that patients contact us by email

  • For medically-related concerns and questions, please email patients@magentahealth.ca instead of your physician directly. This helps minimize the risk that correspondence is missed and ensures questions are routed to the correct individual in a timely manner.

  • For all administrative inquiries, please email us at contact@magentahealth.ca.

Kindly note it may require up to several business days for us to respond. As there is always a small risk of human error on our part, please don't hesitate to follow-up with us if you do not hear back in this time-frame.

Even if you have not completed our Authorization for Email Communication, if you email us without any indication that we should not respond by email, we will infer that we have your consent to at least reply to your email correspondence in the same manner (i.e. by email as well).

IN PERSON

You are also, of course, always welcome to stop by in person. Our staff would be happy to assist as required.

PHONE

We strongly prefer electronic written communication (e.g. emails), as we can respond in a more accurate, comprehensive, and timely manner. However, it is also an option to leave a voicemail with us at 647.479.8410, option 1.

Please note that if your inquiry can be handled online with our existing resources and systems, we will oftentimes ask you to do so.

FAX

Patients are asked to kindly refrain from faxing us directly. If you require your physician’s fax number please click here.

long term plan

We plan to eventually migrate to a secure web messaging portal to communicate with patients. Use of this portal will be mandatory as discussed here. Unfortunately, as no suitable option is currently commercially available, we make the above options available.
