Attention to Our Patients and Referring Doctors

Dear respected colleagues and Patients:

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada’s public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively.  This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some of these technologies are provided by the Province.  Others have been provided by vendors likely Google, or Apple to help make discussions with your care provider as easy as possible during these difficult times. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility if necessary, for a physical examination.

Our Clinic Now Provides Virtual Appointments

Please Contact the Clinic by: Phone: (647) 954-1030  Fax: (647) 954-1073  Email: admin@actionrecovery.ca
We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no video or audio tools are ever completely secure.  There is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using video or audio communication tools. To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:
  • Understand that emails, calls, or texts you receive are not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room.
  • Use a private computer/device (ie. not an employer’s or third party’s computer/device), secure accounts, and a secure internet connection. For example using a personal and encrypted email account is more secure than an unencrypted email account, and your access to the Internet on your home network will generally be more secure than an open guest Wi-Fi connection.
You should also understand that electronic communication is not a substitute for in-person communication or clinical examinations, where appropriate, or for attending the Emergency Department when needed (including for any urgent care that may be required).
