New measures for appointment updates – October 2021
We are doing this so we can offer more in-person appointments, but everyone has to CONTINUE BEING CAREFUL given how contagious the Delta variant is.
Whether you are coming for an appointment in person or to pick up documents, you will be asked by the receptionist a screening questionnaire before you enter.
You must wear a mask at all times
Disinfect your hands at the door and try to stay 2m (6ft) away from other people.
We have put markings on the floor and limited the number of chairs in the waiting room.
If the waiting room starts to become congested, you may be asked to return to your car and wait there. We will call you when an exam room is free.
If you are picking up documents or paying a bill, please wait for the receptionist for instructions.
Your doctor is still offering virtual visits for routine issues, but any urgent problems will be seen in person. Please consult the Classification table for urgent problems (to come)
If you are sick, stay at home if possible.
If you need your first or second vaccination, please book an appointment by calling us at 613-673-4318.
Only people who have received both vaccine doses will be able to meet with the Interdisciplinary healthcare providers in person (i.e. social worker, dietician). Otherwise it will be a virtual visit.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you have just washed your hands
Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hand. Also, make sure to wash your hands afterward.
Evening and Saturday clinic:
All evening clinic will be by appointment only. There will be no walk-in clinic. The same procedures as the day clinic will apply.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in these challenging times.
