We provide a comprehensive assessment, by a nurse and doctor, and offer suggestions and information to help improve the health of patients referred to our program. The initial assessment takes approximately three hours. One to two shorter appointments are offered to complete the assessment. We may refer you to medical specialists or to other health care professionals for consultation.

We send a comprehensive written report, outlining our assessment findings and suggestions for care, to the referring physician, usually the family doctor, who is responsible for management of ongoing health care needs.
