Notice to clients: Retirement
It has been my privilege to serve as your family doctor and I am grateful for the trust you placed in me. However, after 43 years, it is time for me
I am very pleased to be able to say that from 1st October 2016, Dr. Mandana Kamyar will take care of you in my place. She is an experienced family doctor, having worked in South Africa for five years and Saskatchewan for a similar period of time. I know you will be well looked after.
Dr. Kamyar intends to work in the same office as I have done so there will be no need to transfer records. This ensures that the transition will be a smooth one, with no extra cost to you, and that all your personal health records are as safe and instantly available as they have always been.
She will be in the medical office in the pharmacy, for meet-and-greet sessions, from 9.30 am to 5pm, 26th to 30th September, and you are invited to come.
Thanks, once again, for helping to make my working life so rewarding,

After Hours Clinic
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.
Information about your visit will come to my office within a couple of days.
After 9p.m., call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-553-7205.
- 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.)
