Why am I waiting?

  • The time you are given to check in may not reflect the time you are going to be seen by the surgeon. You should allow 3 hours for your visit including registration, x-rays, and seeing the surgeon.
  • Some patients may take longer to treat than others
  • The surgeon may be delayed
  • Ambulance patients are cared for first

Why are some patients called before me?

  • Some patients are called for another surgeon
  • Some patients are called for x-rays
  • Some patients are called to receive treatment by the Orthopedic Technologist
  • We do our best to keep all patients’ charts in order, so they are cared for in order

Does OHIP cover all my care costs?

Your extended health care coverage (private insurance) may pay for these. The Orthopedic Technologist will provide you with a detailed bill for those items that are not covered.
