How do specialist referrals work?

Our doctors may provide you with a specialist referral after the appointment when medically appropriate.

Many specialists are covered under your provincial health insurance. In these scenarios, our Support team will arrange for a referral to be sent to the specialist directly.

Specialists usually take at least 10 business days to get back to us and confirm whether or not they can accept the referral, and to schedule an appointment date and time. We will keep you informed on the status of your referral by email.
