Clinic Policies

Confidentiality

 

We take the confidentiality of our patient’s health information extremely seriously. Unless required by law, we will not release any details regarding your child’s health without consent.

 

Insured Services (OHIP COVERED SERVICES)

 

Parents are responsible for accurate and up to date health card information. Please bring your health card for each visit. Failure to provide accurate and up to date health card information will result in your claim to OHIP being rejected.

If your baby is a newborn, the OHIP number from the hospital is only temporary. You must register with OHIP as soon as possible to obtain a valid permanent OHIP card.

If your child does not have OHIP coverage but has private insurance we will bill you for services and provide you with an official receipt. Use this receipt to claim reimbursement.

 

Walk In

 

We don’t provide appointments our pediatricians see patients on a first come first serve basis.

 

  • Every Monday – Friday from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
  • Please be advised to arrive 50 mins before closing time.
  • This is not an emergency care facility. Please proceed to your nearest emergency room if you require emergency care.
  • It is advisable to call ahead before leaving home to inquire about pediatrician’s lunch time, availability and wait time.

 

Lab Results

 

Most test results will arrive to our office 7 days after being performed. They will arrive directly to the physician who ordered them. If patients are concerned, curious or still having symptoms while waiting for test results, patients are encouraged to come in and speak with the doctor.

Due to OHIP regulations and privacy concerns, we are unable to offer any medical advice or management over the phone, fax or via email. Communication with administrative staff is also against provincial privacy regulations and you will be instructed to communicate all medical concerns with your doctor at your appointment.
