Office policies:

 

Waitlist:  New patients are seen in the order they are received, and are triaged by urgency after review of your appending medical information. Our office is unable to give detailed information about the waiting list.

 

Cancellation List:  If you are available to attend an appointment on immediate notice and wish to be placed on our cancellation list, please inform our office.

 

Cancellation Policy:  Due to the high volume of patients on the waitlist, our office has a cancellation policy in place:  

  • Patients who do not inform our office of their absence in advance may be subject to a cancellation fee or may be returned to their referring practitioner.

  • For cancellations, we require 24 hours advance notification by phone or 72 hours advance notification by email.  

  • Extenuating circumstances, sickness, emergencies, and poor weather / road conditions are generally excused.  

  • Last minute voluntary cancellations or no shows to scheduled operative procedures are highly problematic due to resource constraints in our system.  In the absence of a feasible explanation, this may result in the patient be redirected to the care and waitlist of another provider.  If you wish to cancel, postpone, or reschedule your surgery, please provide at least 4 weeks notice.

 

What to expect at your first appointment:  Your relevant medical history will be reviewed, and a physical exam is generally performed.  Please arrive a few minutes in advance of your first appointment to fill out a medical history form.  Please bring a list of all your current medications, including doses.

Prescription renewals: Dr. Adams is generally able to renew your prescription within 6 months of your initial assessment. You may call the office to request a renewal. If there is a change in your health status, you will need to be seen in person before a new prescription can be issued. Prescription renewals after the 6-month interval must be coordinated through your family physician, unless you have ongoing care arrangements in place with Dr. Adams.

 

Forms & Notes:  These services are not covered through provincial health plans.  Dr. Adams will fill out one complimentary form per patient for a complicated pregnancy or surgical recovery.  Any paperwork beyond this is subject to a fee. You will be billed $20 per note or short form, $50 per extended form >4 pages. (Exceptions will be considered in the case of financial hardship or special circumstances.)  You will need to sign a release agreement if our office is required to provide confidential documents to a third party.
