Medical Doctors/Assistants (including Occupational Therapy)
MDs and their assistants, for the time being, are still keeping some in-person appointments for patients that require physical exams, maneuvers or physical treatment. The majority of office hours have been converted to telephone appointments. The in-person appointments may be discontinued as more directions and information comes to light as the CoVID situation evolves.
Currently, for appointments that are not offered in-person by our MDs/Assistants, appointments will be telephone appointments unless the MD requests a video call for reasons he/she would have discussed with you during a previous appointment.
Our Occupational therapist is offering telephone appointments.
You can expect a phone call at the appointment time from our these health care practitioners. Usually, they are running on time. If they are running more than 10 minutes late, you will receive an email advising of the same.
Chiropractic Care, Physiotherapy, Optometry, Psychotherapy
Our rehab team is only offering video call appointments in keeping with the recommendations from their respective colleges. This presents some benefits and limitations during the CoVID pandemic:
- Continue your rehabilitation care without delay.
- Receive instructions/progressions to exercises you have already received. Using video calls, you can be observed to make sure you are doing exercises properly and our team can give you instructions on how to optimize form/efficiency.
- Our rehab team can demonstrate exercises to you on video calls.
- Our medical doctors can help troubleshoot problems you may be having between your sessions with the rehab team. If they don’t know the answer, they can get back to you by phone or video call.
- Learning a brand new skill may be more difficult without having the health care practitioner being able to touch you to help facilitate/reinforce learning.
- If needed, the team will not be able to use devices to help with any symptoms relief or biofeedback.
