How do I make an appointment?
- Call or come in to the clinic when it opens, usually 9 a.m. (usually 10am on Tuesdays) to request a same day appointment. If all the same day appointments have been booked, you can try again the next day.
- Call or come in to the clinic anytime to request a pre-booked appointment several weeks or months in advance.
- If you are unable to get an appointment when you need one, request that one of the Registered Nurses call you that same day to offer advice about how to manage your health concerns.
Call 705-874-3900 first thing in the morning as appointments fill up quickly. We recommend calling after 1pm for all other matters.
What can a nurse practitioner do?
Primary Care Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are Registered Nurses who have completed additional university education and clinical training to provide the full range of family health care from before birth to end of life. NPs have Masters’ degrees and are educated to provide clinical care as well as to do health research and recommend health care system policy changes.
