Concise Version: 

Telehealth
Please click on the link below sometime between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM on a Sunday* to access telehealth. This will take you to the "virtual waiting room" where I can see you waiting for me.
 I will then connect with you as soon as I can. If you entered the "virtual waiting room" before 8:00 PM, I will connect with you even if it is past 8:00 PM when I finally get to you.

Click to enter the telehealth "virtual waiting room":

*(Telehealth hours may be subject to change or cancellation without notice)

Cool Version: 

My Telehealth "Command Centre"
I assembled this integrated setup (using mostly used/recycled components) for telehealth; paperwork countermeasures; and to increase the effective bandwidth between a care plan and the current medical literature.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to play any video games.

Boring Version: 

The "fine print":


Please do not send messages asking clinical questions or sharing medical information; I am unable to read or respond to this information. Rather, I can only respond to questions or concerns via in-person conventional clinic appointments or telehealth video call appointments (as per what the College allows). 
 

Of course, telehealth is only appropriate in certain situations. If you are unsure, I am more than happy to provide guidance.
 

MSP allows only one visit to a family doctor/GP per day (in-person or via telehealth), so please don't book a telehealth appointment on the same day as an appointment with a different family doctor/GP.
 

Telehealth is not a "virtual walk-in" service. Rather, it complements in-person appointments as part of the comprehensive and continuous care for registered clinic patients. 

 

This service is mostly intended to expand the accessibility of full-scope health care for the patients of my own practice.
