The power of telemedicine allows you to get your new specialist referral online at a time that is convenient to you. If our online doctor requires a medical specialist from our team to provide consultation, an internal requisition will be sent to them directly and you will be notified once a virtual appointment is available with the specialist.
To get your specialist referral, simply book an appointment at a time that is convenient for you and chat with our virtual doctor by phone or video-call. If medically appropriate, our online doctor will send the referral to the specialist after which their office will contact you with the date and time of your appointment.
There are certain specialist services that may not be covered by your provincial health insurance, such as Registered Massage Therapists, Mental Health Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Physiotherapists. In these scenarios, you will be sent a referral letter directly for easy download and print to be shared with the specialist of your choice.
Yes, you are entitled to ask for a referral for specialist treatment; however, whether you'll get the referral depends on what your virtual doctor feels is clinically necessary in your case.
Generally, you cannot self-refer to a specialist. A specialist will only see you with a letter of referral from your General Practitioner.
You can connect with a Healthcare Provider 7-days a week between 8am to 9pm EST in 15 minutes or less from the time you requested your appointment.
