6. What do I expect from my first visit?
Your first appointment, called the 'intake appointment,' is an opportunity for you and your doctor to discuss any concerns you have about your health. This is an important appointment for your doctor to obtain comprehensive information about your medical history. It is also an opportunity to welcome you to the clinic and go over our policies and what to expect going forward.
7. Can I still see the doctor without having to do the first visit (intake) appointment?
You will not be enrolled as a patient of the family doctor unless you attend an intake appointment first.

Online booking is available. This booking process requires your health card number and is private, quick and simple. Please click here to book an appointment online.
9. What should I bring for my appointment/ how should I prepare?
- Your OHIP card (Ontario Health Insurance Plan; green health card). Please note that without this card, we will need to charge for the visit.
- List of your medications (you can get this from your pharmacy) or alternatively your medication bottles. This list is crucial in ensuring your safety and allows your doctor to prescribe the correct medication.
- Your medical information. For example, you may have received a Hospital Discharge Report if you have been hospitalized recently. This information is quite useful for the doctor and will help guide your care.
- List of your specialists. This list can be quite helpful because we can refer to the same specialist if needed.
If you have other questions, please call us at: 647-345-8486.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.
