Preparing for your First Visit

Things to bring to the appointment:

Health card, personal identification  - you will be asked for your OHIP card at each visit

Any updated information regarding changes in address, phone number, work number or new OHIP card info

If it is your first visit with us, please make sure you bring details of your previous family physician (name, address, phone number/fax number) and arrive 10-15 minutes early, as there will be paperwork for you to fill out

A list of all medications you're currently taking, including prescription drugs and non-prescription medications, as well as any vitamins, supplements, herbal and homeopathic remedies.  If in doubt, bring in all your medications in a bag so that your physician can review them.

A list of other health professionals you've recently consulted, why you went to see them, and what they told you

Before you arrive, be sure you know:

Which doctor you will be seeing

Why you are coming to see them

Some appointments (such as physicals, prenatal visits, certain bloodwork) will require preparation such as fasting, or may require you to provide us with a urine sample – please ask the receptionist at the time of booking your appointment if this applies to your visit
