What should I bring in to my first visit to the clinic?

A) Please bring in both your Alberta Health Card and a piece of photo ID as well as a list of all medications or the medication bottles themselves. If you do not have your Alberta health card we may be able to retrieve your health card number but we require a photo ID to prevent identity theft and fraud.

If you do not have an Alberta Health card or any provincial health card you will be required to pay out of pocket.

Do you accept walk-ins?

A) Currently we do not accept walk-ins. We encourage patients to call and book an appointment.

Can I have my prescription filled without having to see the physician, over the phone or by fax?

A) Patients requiring a prescription refill from their doctor are required to see them in person to ensure that the medication is appropriate, is required and no changes need to be made. We do not refill medications over the phone or fax. Please make sure you have enough medication to last until your next visit.

What if I miss my appointment?

A) We do ask that 24 hours’ notice be given to reschedule or cancel an appointment in order to allow for other patients that greatly need an appointment to be scheduled in. There is a $20-30 fee for missed appointments.
