Do I need to do anything before my first visit?

How do I transfer my medical records to your clinic?
At the conclusion of your first visit, you will complete a transfer record form that allows us to receive your records directly from your old clinic. Please be aware that your old clinic may charge for this process.
What happens at my first appointment?
At your first appointment you will be greeted with a welcome package with basic clinic information and any pertinent forms which need to be filled out (if you have not already completed them).
During your physician appointment, the physician will speak with you to better understand your medical needs and find out about your life – the patient-physician relationship is very important, and we work to cultivate this from the first visit to ensure we are adequately meeting your needs.
Do I need a referral to see the Family Physicians?
No. You do not need any type of referral to see our Family Physicians.
Do you take OHIP?
As you may know, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays for most of your medical visits to our office. There are, however, uninsured services, which OHIP does not cover, such as prescription refills by phone or medical forms for insurance.
Do you accept private insurance?
Yes. Some of the services we provide that are uninsured by OHIP may be covered by your private insurance plans. Contact your insurance provider to find out what level of coverage you have. We are happy to provide the necessary invoicing for insurance claims.
What is the Annual Fee Plan?
The Medical Station will charge for uninsured services in accordance with the fee guidelines set by the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). While you can pay for uninsured services on an as-needed basis, Family Physicians at The Medical Station offer an Annual Fee Plan as a more convenient and cost-effective way to manage these charges.
See the brochure for more details about the Annual Fee Plan or feel free to ask any of our staff for more information about this option.
What types of payment are accepted?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and cheques for appointment payments. If you do not use or have access to these payment methods, please contact our clinic to discuss alternate options.
