Booking Office Appointments
Appointments are being offered in the office at the discretion of each individual doctor. We are striving to serve our patient population virtually as much as possible to reduce risk of asymptomatic transmission.

Attending your Appointment – Steps for Safety
You must wear a mask, surgical masks are preferred.
You will be asked to look at our COVID screening questions and give an answer to our reception staff before being admitted for your appointment. This handout can be found through this link.
We are currently not accepting anyone to the office with any symptoms of COVID-19 infection, or who has been in direct contact with someone with the infection or symptoms thereof, or who is waiting on test results due to an at-home contact.
It is difficult to list all the symptoms of COVID-19 in our questionnaire, but please keep in mind, they include symptoms of the common cold such as a sore throat, nasal congestion, and headache
To enter the clinic, one must walk around the pharmacy building to access the main front door off of Bank Street. There is no longer direct access from the pharmacy.
We aim to keep our waiting room sparsely filled in order to minimize droplet exchange.
We are restricting visits to under 10 minutes to reduce transmission. Please respect your physician's time and maintain a distance when not being examined.
Rescheduling or Cancelling Appointments
Booking an appointment means that time has been reserved for you. If you miss an appointment without 24 hours notice, you will be billed at the Ontario Medical Association suggested rates.

As a member of Walkley Medical Centre, you are entitled to access to your regular doctor or another doctor in the group during cross-coverage sessions for urgent matters only.
