Donna is our office receptionist. She is responsible for scheduling patient appointments and keeps the office running smoothly. Kelly is our part-time practice nurse.


Urgent visits can be arranged by telephone, usually the same day or within a few days. All requests for appointments will be prioritized by the receptionist, and patients will be asked to provide specific information about their concern(s) so that we can allot an appropriate amount of time. Please arrive on time. We will do everything we can to ensure that the office runs efficiently and on time. We reserve the right to rebook patients who are late for appointments, or whose concerns cannot be appropriately assessed in the time available.

By ‘rostering’ (signing up) with our team, you have access to the After Hours Clinic and the doctor on call as described above. You also have access to allied health services including mental health counseling as well as dietician and pharmacist consultations.


Certain services are not paid for by OHIP and will be charged to you directly. Such services include completing forms, and sick notes, and procedures not deemed ‘medically necessary’ such as cosmetic procedures. Should you request one of these services, you will be advised of the charge and must agree to it prior to the service being completed. Payment is required at the time the service is completed. Cash and cheques are accepted. The fees assigned are as per the recommendations of the provincial medical association. That said, we realize and will always take into consideration that some patients may not be able to pay for these services. Please do not hesitate to inform us if these charges pose a financial hardship to you so that alternative arrangements can be made.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment to cancel. Any notice you can provide is appreciated and we recognize that unexpected circumstances can arise. If appropriate notice is not given, you will be charged for each missed appointment. Our office will not be calling to remind you of your appointment; it is therefore your responsibility to remember.


Prescriptions will not be routinely renewed over the phone unless previously agreed. It is the patient’s responsibility, as an active partner in their health care, to monitor their prescriptions and make appointments/requests at least 2 weeks prior to prescriptions expiring. We will do our best to review medication lists at each visit and therefore maintain an up-to-date list of prescriptions on a regular basis.
