Referrals Required

Our waitlist has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Referrals are triaged by our office, and those deemed urgent or semi-urgent will be seen as soon as possible. Patients who wish to be referred require an trial management with their primary care practitioner/physician, a physical exam and agreement from the referring practitioner that the specialist consult is necessary before they will be considered for our waitlist. This is to try to give patients who need specialists quicker access to care. Virtual referrals are no longer being accepted. 

Due to current waitlists, we are  not accepting referrals for several conditions at this time, including for MSP rhinoplasties or dizzy patients (subject to change). 

If you are unhappy with the wait time to see a specialist, or your wait time for surgery, please note that we are doing our best within the medical system limitations at this time, and we encourage you to write you MLA or health authority with your wish to have better access to more specialists and short waitlists to surgery.
