A Message to our valued patients:
Maple Kidz Clinic is pleased to provide urgent same day visits each morning for our registered patients only . In an effort to ensure the best care possible with the shortest wait, we ask that the urgent care clinic not be used to address longstanding or chronic symptoms.
Similarly, we ask that you not use the urgent clinic to bring up school difficulties, behavioral challenges, or requests for routine referrals (e.g. Allergy testing). Should this be the case, you will be asked to book an appointments and deal with the concern with your primary care physician.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation
SAME DAY CLINIC:
For your convenience, children who are unwell can be seen without an appointment, Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 11:15 am and Saturday from 9:00 am - 11:15 am . You must be checked in by 11:15 am.
Please note that that there will be no walk-in clinics on Statutory Holidays.
About our same day appointments:
Same day appointments are only available to:
o Registered patients of Maple Kidz Clinic
o Patients who are sick
• Please bring your child’s health card.
• We will only provide sick notes during this visit if required, there is a fee of $25 unless you pay for the Block Fee.
• We are unable to fill out forms or provide letters during these visits. Please feel free to leave your request with us. It generally takes a minimum of 1 week to have these requests completed.
• For all other issues kindly book an appointment with your regular physician.
Same day appointments allow equal access to all of our patients and ensure that any of our patients can be seen in a more timely way when they are sick. We ask that parents respect the urgent appointment clinic hours and that you be prepared to wait. This schedule will also separate the "well visit" patients, who are not likely to be contagious, from the ill patients. This is particularly important for families who bring their newborns and young infants for well visits.
The wait to be seen will be unpredictable however, we will try to be as efficient as possible and respect your time. Our goal is to provide the best care possible, and this will mean that some visits will take more time.
IN AN EMERGENCY, DO NOT COME TO THE SAME DAY CLINIC. CALL 911 OR GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR NEAREST HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM.
