If you need a doctor and I am not available, please go to
After Hours Clinic in
the Bayview Village Shopping Centre at Bayview and Sheppard. It is on the ground floor by the entrance to the Loblaws.
Tel: 416 491 6338.
Times: 5pm to 8pm Monday to Friday,
and 10am to 4pm weekends and holidays.
I work there myself, from time to time, as part of a roster of physicians who cover each others practices. Once there, tell the receptionist that your doctor is a member of the Oriole group and you will be fast-tracked to see a doctor.

Please check this site from time

I’m going to be away I’ll post the dates here.

If you need medical advice while I am away please go to the After Hours Clinic.
- If you want to have blood work done for your complete
physical you can collect the lab requisition from my secretary,
pre-signed, and have the blood taken before you come to see me. Please
allow three days for the results to come in. You can then book to see me
any time that’s convenient. Please remember to fast for the blood
test. You may drink water, though, and you should take all your
pills, except those needed to control diabetes, since you should not
take these without eating soon afterwards.
- Patients over fifty are advised to provide stool samples to
rule out traces of blood in the stool. You can collect the sample kit
from my office, when you pick up the lab form, or get one from the lab
at 4256 Bathurst St or 7117 Bathurst Street.
- For most patients it is appropriate to do an E.C.G. for their
physical, and that will be done at the lab and read by me the same day
- For those who need them, lung function tests will be done
when I see you in my office.
Lab WorkPlease take the lab forms you have been given to the Dynacare lab at 4256 Bathurst Street or 7117 Bathurst Street. Using these labs ensures that I
receive your results quickly.
To make everyone’s life easier
please ask your pharmacist to FAX me, at (416) 642-1284, when you
need a repeat script. It makes sense to allow 48 hours for the
turnaround, although I’ll try and get it back the same day. My fax
machine will be switched on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. (I’d
like to keep it on all the time, but when I tried that in the past we were
flooded with spam and adverts.)
