Cancelling Appointments

Prescription Renewals

Please try to have prescriptions renewed at your regular office visit. Bring your pill bottles or a list of medications with you. An appointment to see the doctor for a renewal is required.

Test Results

Please check with your doctor on how you will receive your results. If your results are NORMAL you may not be called. Your doctor may call you, have his nurse call you or may want to discuss the results with you in person. Test results are not always back on the same day, some take 10 days to 6 weeks, depending on the type of test.

Urgent and Emergency Care

Patients needing care after hours which is not life threatening should phone ahead of time to see what is the appropriate time to be seen in the Emergency Department. There is always a doctor on call at the hospital for all emergency needs. Follow up appointments should be made with your own Family Physician.

Immunizations, Allergy shots and Injections

The nurses are available during regular office hours for these services. Visits separate from a "doctor visit" will be worked in as the nurses' time permits. Patients seeing the doctor will have priority with the nurse.

Obstetrical/Gynecological

There are a number of physicians within the clinic that provide Obstetrical care and look after their own obstetrical patients up to the time of delivery.  Your delivery will be performed by one of our on call obstetrical physicians.

We now have a Gynecological/Obstetrician specialist practicing full time at the Dauphin Medical Clinic.
