How the clinic works: As a patient, you will be assigned to one physician, but in the event that your family doctor is unavailable, you will be offered an appointment with one of the other physicians at the clinic.  The clinic takes pride in offering patient care that is both timely and professional.  Please keep in mind, however, that there may be times when patient demands exceed appointment availability. The clinic members look forward to participating in your care!

  • Blood tests may not be ordered over the telephone. Please book an appointment with the doctor to get a requisition for any blood tests required.
  • Please inform the receptionist of the nature of your visit. This allows us to schedule the appropriate amount of time required.
