Dear patients of the Family Practice Health Centre,
Our practice has been busy preparing to keep our patients and staff safe in the event of an increase in COVID-19 in our community.
We want to reassure you that your safety and maintaining high quality primary care is our priority. In order to achieve both aims, we will be adapting how we work in the coming weeks.
Visiting Family Practice
Please do not walk in to Family Practice for an appointment. Instead, please call us at 416-323-6060 first.
If you are coming to Family Practice for a scheduled appointment, please call ahead of time if you are experiencing ANY symptoms of:
- shortness of breath
- or if you have had any recent travel
If yes, we will be offering telephone assessments prior to your visit to help guide your care. You can expect to be asked screening questions each time you call or visit Family Practice.
Booking Family Practice Appointments
Starting next week, we will:
- CONTINUE to offer essential services, as usual. This includes urgent care appointments, routine prenatal care, and newborn visits.
- OFFER TELEPHONE appointments with your provider for timely, but non-urgent concerns. This may include prescription renewals, blood pressure/diabetes checks, and new, non-urgent concerns
- DEFER any new bookings for some non-urgent visits for a period of about 4 weeks. This may include visits such as: periodic health exams ("physicals"), well child visits, pap tests, ear syringing, new patient appointments.
