What is the process for seeing patients amidst the COVID-19 pandemic?
We are encouraging patients to book an arrival time on our website for a SAME DAY ASSESSMENT. The link goes live at 6:00 am daily and there is no cost to use this system. This system allows us to control our waiting room and allow for safe social distancing of our waiting room.
If you are unable to book through our website, you can walk- in to register for an arrival time however you may be asked to return at a later time if clinic volumes are high.
PLEASE NOTE: we are not assessing patients with any COVID-19 symptoms, however, for education or advice regarding how to access assessment or testing sites or regarding return to work or school protocols you can book a timeslot for a same day PHONE ASSESSMENT via our website link here
Patients are registered online or in person and screened for any COVID-19 symptoms
