As the environment continues to evolve with regards to the COVID-19 outbreak, The Brooklin Medical Centre is working together with external agencies to optimize the health and wellbeing of our patients, their families and staff.
As you are aware, COVID -19 has impacted the way healthcare is being delivered and accessed across the country. That said, this is a pandemic that has the potential to be controlled through various means including social distancing. Therefore, we have made some temporary yet significant changes to our policies and procedures within the organization on how we deliver care.
Some of the changes include:
All appointment requests will be triaged by phone and a telephone consultation will be scheduled with your primary care provider
Once triaged by a physician, you will either be scheduled for an in person visit or instructed on how to proceed
Our after-hours Urgent Care clinics (Mon -Thurs 5:00pm-8:00 pm, Sat 10:00am-1:00pm) will no longer be on a walk-in basis. Those who request to be assessed will initially be triaged by telephone and the appropriate appointments will be booked the same day or evening. This may be an in-person visit, teleconference or video-conference appointment. You may reach our designated Urgent Care line at 289-483-1134
If you need your physician to renew your medication, please do not come to urgent care. Have your pharmacy fax a request to 905-655-4848. All fees will temporarily be waived.
Wellness visits may be cancelled until further notice
Pre-natal care, newborn and well-baby assessments, as well as patients with complex medical conditions and the elderly will be for morning appointments.
Note: Lakeridge Health Hospital has set up a COVID-19 Assessment Centre for individuals in Durham region. Those who are experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19 should take the self-assessment which can be found at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/#q0 or on our website at www.brooklinmedical.com. We will continue to update our phone lines and website as new information becomes available.
Please note that these changes are only temporary and in place to ensure and optimize the health and safety of our community. We ask that you please be patient as we deal with the impact of COVID-19.
Your patience and understanding during this difficult time, is appreciated.
The Brooklin Medical Centre provides care to members of the Brooklin community and surrounding area. Our family physicians provide family medical services, hormone therapy and a number of minor procedures, ranging from newborn circumcision to mole removal. These services are provided to current registered patients of the clinic.
The term “physical” is often used to describe wellness care. However, a traditional, head-to-toe physical has not been shown to lower your risk of illness or injury. At your wellness visit, our health care team will take a health history and provide several other services:
Screenings to detect depression, risk for falling and other problems
A limited physical exam to check your blood pressure, weight, vision and other things depending on your age, gender and level of activity
Recommendations for other wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes
These preventative health visits do not often deal with new health problems; typically, new problems should be addressed at a separate visit with appropriate time to assess the issues properly. Please let our scheduling staff know if you need the doctor’s help with a new health problem. We may need to schedule a separate appointment.
For adults 65 and older: For the 2019-2020 season, adults over 65 years of age are recommended to have the High Dose flu vaccine. The High Dose flu vaccine is only available in doctor’s offices, and not available at the pharmacy. We now have the High Dose flu vaccine available – please call the office to book an appointment with our nurse.
For adults under 65, and children 5 years and older: We currently have a limited supply of regular flu vaccines; as a result, we recommend you visit a pharmacy for your flu vaccine. We should receive additional supply in a few weeks, and will be able to offer the flu vaccine in our office at that time. **High risk individuals are strongly encouraged to get their flu vaccine; high risk includes: people with heart or lung disease, diabetes, cancer, immunosuppression and pregnant women.**
For children 4 and under: We currently have a limited supply of regular flu vaccines; as a result, we will prioritize administration to children 4 and under, who are unable to receive a flu vaccine at the pharmacy – please call the office to book an appointment with our nurse.
New patients can call to book an appointment with an available physician as a ‘meet and greet’. If the physician and the patient agree that the clinic is appropriate for their care, enrollment forms are signed. Patients booked for the initial appointment are NOT considered part of the practice. Health records are not to be transferred into our possession until after the intake is completed.
Registered patients can book:
by phone, during business hours, by calling 905-655-3321
