Appointment or Urgent Care Clinic

Our urgent care clinic operates Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as Saturdays, Sundays and most statutory holidays.  For an urgent issue on a weekday, please call your doctor’s assistant to book a same-day urgent need appointment.  These appointments are for one urgent issue ONLY.  You do not need an appointment for our weekend urgent care clinic – it operates on a first come first served walk-in basis.  We strongly encourage you to use our urgent care clinic as an alternative to walk-in clinics and house call services.

A Special Note to Our Patients

All of the doctors at the Bathurst Lawrence Family Health Organization are dedicated, caring medical professionals who have chosen to practice medicine as the result of a heartfelt desire to help people. The reality of medicine today is that the system is overburdened, physicians are being asked to handle more patients and a wider range of medical issues each day. We are doing our best and when your turn comes your concerns will also be given an appropriate amount of time and attention.


If you cannot attend your appointment, please cancel your appointment 24 hours in advance. This allows the clinic to free up a spot for another patient waiting for an appointment.
Missed appointment without prior notice will be charged a fee.

Laboratory Test and X-ray Results

Due to the volume of test results coming to our clinic daily, normal results will not be reported to the patient. We will contact patients with abnormal results or for tests that require a follow-up visit to our clinic. Pregnancy test results will be reported in a phone call to the patient. If you wish to discuss test results with your doctor, please book a follow-up appointment for one to two weeks after the tests are done.

Telephone Calls

If you have a health-related question that you wish to discuss, please make an appointment to see your doctor. Most medical questions need to be dealt with your doctor in order to assess the healthcare concern and document matters properly. Please do not ask our office staff for medical advice as they cannot legally respond to your questions.


Your doctor is the only person that can refer you to a specialist. If you need to see a specialist or undergo certain specialized testing, your doctor will send a referral request to the consultant directly from our office. You will then be contacted by our staff (by phone or mail) to confirm an appointment time. We Ask that you inform us if you are contact directly by the specialist’s office to arrange an appointment time so that we may record this confirmation in your file. Once the referral has been sent please allow two weeks for processing.

Prescriptions and Renewals

Your doctor will renew your prescriptions at each visit to meet your ongoing needs. Please anticipate your needs well in advance to reduce the need for telephone renewals.

If you require a telephone prescription renewal, contact your pharmacy and they will fax us the information. Please allow up to 48 hours for your physician to respond to a prescription request from your pharmacy.

If you do not pay the annual fee, please make an appointment with your doctor to obtain prescriptions. This way your will not be charged for a prescription repeat. If you do pay the annual fee please have your pharmacist fax us the prescription you need. Our fax number is 647-288-0170.

E-mail  Communication

We will start to use email communication for non-urgent correspondence. Things such as the annual letter, update you or perhaps inform you of an upcoming referral appointment and requisitions.

You must sign a consent form in order for us to communicate to your through email and be aware of the risks of confidentiality. We will not use this as a regular means of communication as it is not a secure means of communication and is not checked on a daily basis.
We do not open attachments because of the risk of viruses.
