What's Happening at the Clinic


  • PLEASE TAKE TIME
    TO COMPLETE OUR SURVEYS

    Have you been to the clinic in the past six months? If so, we'd appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete a short survey to tell us about your experience.
    You can access the survey by clicking here. Your responses are anonymous, but they are invaluable in helping our team's ongoing efforts to improve the quality health care you receive.

    In addition, with COVID-19 forcing our providers to schedule phone appointments, we want to hear from you about your experience. We'd appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete our Telephone Appointment Patient Survey here.

    COVID-19 
    Please note our Office Process changes and see new tab on website devoted to COVID information
     
    In the midst of the continuing developments with COVID-19 Pandemic, we are doing our best to provide timely health care, while considering the safety of our Athens Family Health Team (ADFHT) patients, employees and community.  We are implementing changes to reduce unnecessary in person office visits. 
    Please do not walk into the office without an appointment. 

    The Corona Virus (COVID-19) requirements in health care keep changing rapidly.  Please note changes in how we currently deliver services below: 
    • Please do not walk into the officeCALL first if you have questions or concerns about your health.
    • We are providing phone appointments and if you need to be seen in person, you will be scheduled for an in-office appointment.
    • For scheduled in-office appointments please arrive on time.  Do not arrive early for any appointments as we are scheduling to avoid patient-to-patient contact. Come alone (one helper if needed) and do not bring children to your appointment.  We are screening everyone coming in the building for appointments for fever and symptoms upon their arrival.  
    • Please be assured that our exam rooms are being disinfected after each patient visit and common areas are disinfected frequently.
    • Evening clinics remain open, however the door will be locked, again no walk-ins.
    • Please KNOCK on the door as we are screening each person entering the building.
    • LifeLabs remains open on site by appointment only, after screening when booking.   
    • If you are experiencing mild symptoms (fever, cough) please self-quarantine at home in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, especially to the more vulnerable population.
     
    Mental Health Counselling Back In Office
    We realize this is a stressful time for many and you may be experiencing anxiety.  Our counsellor Mitch Talasan from LLGAMH Rapid Access Counselling is now back in office seeing patients.
