AUGUST, 2015 - APPOINTMENTS NEEDED TO ACCESS GREAT NORTHERN FAMILY HEALTH TEAM.
Rostered patients of the Great Northern Family Health Team (patients of Dr. Jean Corbin, Dr. Glenn Corneil, Dr. Colleen Davies, Dr. Donald Davies, Dr. Vincent Dubois, and Dr. Pat Logan) are asked to call either their Family Doctor or our team, when needed. While we do our best to see patients as soon as possible, we are not able to function as a walk-in-clinic. Our physicians also work to keep the Emergency Room open at Temiskaming Hospital and our complement of only one nurse practitioner and one registered nurse to deal with acute and episodic services does not enable walk-in access in our primary care clinics.
Great Northern Family Health Team does understand that medical issues often arise outside of our regular office hours. While we do reserve some same-day appointments for urgent medical needs, you may not know if your issue can wait until the clinic opens. Telehealth Ontario is available to anyone, and is a free, confidential service you can call to get health advice or information from a Registered Nurse at 1-866-797-0000.
