Kennedy Road Walk-In Clinic is proud to now offer medical care for any of the above conditions through our new Telemedicine Program, offered in partnership with the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) and the Appletree Medical Group.  A team of family doctors are standing by, with little to no wait!

 

 

 

What is a telemedicine visit?

Telemedicine uses video cameras and monitors to connect you to physicians who are not located near you, reducing the need to travel to receive care.  You will be able to see, hear and talk to a doctor or other health care professional.

 

 

How does a telemedicine clinical visit work?

A telemedicine visit is just like a regular doctor’s visit; only the doctor you will be seeing and speaking with is on a monitor. When you arrive, the physician will need you to be properly prepared by our staff.  They will collect relevant information about you to support your telemedicine visit.  A health care professional who has been trained in patient preparation and telemedicine will be with you during your visit.  The staff member with you will assist with the history taking and may assist with the examination, using diagnostic equipment like a stethoscope or otoscope. 

 

 

Is there a cost for a telemedicine appointment?

No, you will not be billed for this service.  It is covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).

 

 

Is telemedicine private?

Just like a regular doctor’s appointment, your telemedicine visit will be private and confidential.  It can only be seen and heard by the health care professionals involved.
