Guideline on Services

Refer to below for reasons to visit your family doctor:

General health concern

Blood work / labs / imaging

Basic urine tests are done at this office, but otherwise, you will be given a requisition to complete bloodwork at Lifelab and imaging at various other locations. This is standard practice in Canada.  

All bloodwork requisition needs to be completed by a doctor.
