Patients

 

Family doctor offices are open during COVID-19. It is important that you still take care of your health and get any treatment or medicine you need. You are not a 'bother' and you are not stressing the healthcare system. Read more here 


Most doctors offer phone or video appointments first to keep everyone safe. If necessary, they will set up a safe in-person visit. Call your doctor's office first, please do not just show up at the office. You can also look up your doctor's virtual options in the Pathways Medical Care Directory if they have shared their information.

If you do not have a family doctor: Walk-in clinics are open. They offer phone or video appointments first and set up an in-person visit if it's needed. You can use the Pathways Medical Care Directory to see local options. Call the clinic first for an appointment with a doctor, please do not just show up. A list of walk-in clinics and their wait times is also available at Medimap.ca
