We require a written referral from your family doctor before we make a clinic appointment for you. If you do not have a family doctor, please make an appointment with a family doctor of your choice to establish ongoing care and obtain a referral. The Environmental Health Clinic does not provide ongoing care to clients.
Your family doctor will receive a written report outlining our assessment findings and suggestions for your care. Your family doctor is responsible for follow-up on the suggestions made by the Environmental Health Clinic for managing your health care.
We will ask you to complete and return a pre-visit questionnaire before a clinic appointment is made for you. The questionnaire provides the opportunity for you to describe your medical history in a complete, organized way and to assist the clinic staff in planning for your visit.
If you have questions or difficulties when completing the questionnaire, the clinic nurse will be pleased to help you.
Please return the consent form (included with your questionnaire) to the clinic with your pre-visit questionnaire. If you choose not to participate in research being conducted by the clinic and the University of Toronto, it will not affect the care you receive as a client.
You will be notified when an appointment is made for you. Expect your initial appointment to take several hours. One to two shorter follow-up appointments will be offered to complete your assessment. Our waiting list for new referral appointments is approximately 13 months.
When you come for the clinic appointment, please bring all the prescription and non-prescription medications and vitamin/mineral supplements you are currently taking.
The cost of all visits to the clinic is covered by OHIP.
