Bigelow Fowler Clinic Information

Appointments

 

Appointments are available by calling one of our clinics. For non-emergency appointments please call our office a few days ahead.

 

During the day, all visits at all sites are by appointment only. After hours

walk-in clinics are offered at the East and West locations on a first-come,

first-serve basis.

 

While appointments are booked in advance, we do reserve a few times each day

for emergencies, sudden severe illnesses or urgent single issue appointments.

When this is the case, please do not hesitate to call our office and explain your

situation so that you can be seen as soon as possible. If your previously booked appointment is delayed because of an emergency, we ask that you please be

patient. Remember, you may need the same attention should you encounter an

emergency situation.

 

Calling the Clinics

 

Our busiest telephone time is between 9:00 and 11:30am. For non-emergency problems, please try to call between 2:00 and 4:00pm.

 

Patient Confidentiality

 

We do our utmost to ensure that all aspects of your visit, treatment and medical records remain confidential. When you book your appointment, our staff member will ask you the reason for your visit so that an adequate amount of time can be scheduled. This is especially important if you are a first time patient, if you require a complete examination, a driver's medical, a first pre-natal or a counselling session.

Laboratory & X-Ray Results

 

Usually, the results for blood work and x-rays are received in our office three days after the tests are performed. In some cases, such as pregnancy tests which are done in the Clinics, the results are available immediately. In the case of an emergency or severe illness, we are able to obtain the results by telephone the same day. Lab and x-ray results are reviewed each morning. If an abnormality is found our staff will call the patient with further instructions. In most cases, if you have not heard from us, you can assume your tests are normal. If you are still experiencing significant problems and wish to discuss your test results, please make an appointment to see your doctor.
