If you have a cough and fever, and if you or someone close to you has recently traveled out of the area, PLEASE alert the clinic staff when you call for an appointment and avoid any unscheduled visit to the clinic.

Privacy Information regarding virtual care

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada’s public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using electronic communications for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your health care provider may ask you to visit the clinic or a hospital if necessary, for a physical examination.


You should also understand that virtual care is not a substitute for in-person communication or clinical examinations, where appropriate, or for going to an Emergency Department when needed (including for any urgent care that may be required).


We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no electronic communications tools (such as audio, video, email, text) are ever completely secure. There is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using such electronic communications tools.


To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:

• Understand that electronic communications (such as audio, video) you receive are not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room.

• If you are concerned about using electronic communications for virtual care, you can ask our office to attempt to arrange a potential alternative. However, please note that visiting a health care provider in person comes with a higher risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 and the possibility of spreading the virus.


By providing your information, you agree to let us collect, use, or disclose your personal health information through video, audio, communications (while following applicable privacy laws) to provide you with care.
