Referral Process

If you wish to see a specialist you may only do so on referral by a physician at our office.

In most instances appointments are scheduled directly between our office and the specialist’s office.  Once scheduled our office is responsible for notifying you of your appointment date and time. On occasion, the specialist’s office will contact you directly with the appointment information.

Please allow a minimum of four weeks before you contact us – it often takes this length of time for us to schedule your appointment.

Here at Summerville Family Health Team, Etobicoke location, we inform our patients of their appointment by phone.

It is the patient’s responsibility to inform our office of any contact and address information changes.

In most instances you are required to bring your valid health card and a list of your current medications.  Other instructions will be given depending on the Specialist office’s request.

Specialist offices may charge a fee if you do not attend your scheduled appointment without notification or you fail to call and cancel the appointment within their set time.  If you have any further concerns on this matter please speak directly with the Specialist’s office.
