Update for Edmonton and Grande Prairie_2nd June 2020

Clinic Hours | June 2, 2020

Greetings to everyone, I hope the warmer weather (albeit a bit wet) and more relaxed environment has cheered everyone up a bit, these have been a challenging few months!!

The number of new cases in Edmonton has decreased dramatically and that is most encouraging, remember the number has decreased, not gone to a sustained zero yet so please,, be thoughtful and mindful of the safety of everyone, restaurants are opening small social gatherings are happening but keep the distance, wear a mask when in the near company of others and wash hands surfaces regularly and carry hand sanitizer.

EDMONTON

 

The clinic is open again from Monday to Thursday 0900 to 1200 and 1300 to 1600, and on Friday 0900 to 1200 Noon.

Patients on the waiting list are being contacted and invited to attend for a face to face consultation at the office. I am prioritizing those I have deemed priority and urgent cases and then the elective cases, I do hope to keep the waiting list shorter than two months.

You will be contacted for your appointment by the office staff and there will be certain steps that need to be followed.

Remember, I share clinic space with a family practice and am inside a very busy superstore so:

You will be asked to come alone unless you need assistance or a translator!

Wear light clothing, avoid jewellery!

You may be asked to wait outside. or in your car until called in dependent upon the number of people in the clinic.

Please wear a mask. The nature of the encounter will mean we are closer than six feet so mask is mandatory.

We will ask you if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection.

If you feel uncomfortable with an in person visit I can in the interim off you a telephone consultation, please let the office staff know when they speak to you.

The office telephone number is:

780 6163811

If this is your first you find out more about your first visit here

Wear light clothes and try to avoid jewellery.

If you feel uncomfortable at this point to have a face to face consultation, we can arrange a telephone consultation, let us know when we call you.
