COVID-19 Pandemic Preparedness
We’re drastically changing the way we operate until the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, which will likely take few weeks to few months. Our clinic is open but our doors are closed until screened by staff to determine if pt. needs face-to-face examination by doctor. All visits will be virtually conducted by phone unless cleared by doctor requiring physical face-to-face encounter. The waiting area will be blocked. Patient will pull out a form, fill it, go back sit in their car or somewhere warm until a call from staff. Those who’re affected by respiratory illness should call public health hotline 905-546-3500 (regardless of travel) to get tested or self-isolate based on advice from dedicated public health doctors and nurses. Patients determined by doctor needing a physical face-to-face encounter will be scheduled on either Monday, Tuesday or Friday through booked appointment. Virtual care will extend after hours throughout the entire week excluding Sunday. All walk-ins will be directed to virtual (phone call) visit directly by doctor unless cleared by doctor that pt. requires face-to-face visit. Our hours has changed. Dr. Khalil and Dr. Chander will be taking Walk-in virtual phone calls only! All routine appointments will be cancelled [routine physical and preventive care visit, well-baby visit (unless for vaccine), pregnancy care (unless symptoms change, like vaginal bleeding), pap smears, diabetic routine visits, elective procedures (skin lesion removal), work-physicals, driver’s physicals, travel assessments, and on-site blood/lab works] until further notice depending on how the pandemic unfolds. Our hours has changed too! We hope this will limit the transmission of this serious pandemic and prevent patients and staff from falling ill! Thank you for your cooperation!
