Please review the updated contact information.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to modify our in-person visits and reorganize our delivery of medical care.
From time to time, opportunities to accept new patients will arise. if you are interested in joining our waitlist please contact us here. Due to significant shortages in primary care providers in Ontario, Dr. Wright will not accept new patients who currently have a health care practitioner. The waitlist is strictly for patients without a family doctor.
Essential, pre-natal, and well-child visits will continue but will be scheduled in such a way as to reduce inter-personal contact in our waiting room.
If you have a medical concern, please contact our office. We will still be proactively managing our patients during this time!
Our receptionists will arrange for either a telephone or video-based assessment with Dr. Wright if an in-person visit is not essential. If necessary, an in-person visit will be scheduled at a time to minimize your exposure to other individuals.
In order to prepare for a phone or video appointment with Dr. Wright please allow 30 minutes before and after the scheduled time to receive the call. For example, if your appointment was booked for 10 am, please be available from 930 to 1030, just as you would if you had an in-person visit, as some appointments run earlier or later. Here is a helpful link to preparing for a virtual care appointment:
In keeping with public health recommendations, any patients with symptoms of respiratory infection or undifferentiated infectious disease cannot be seen at our clinic and will be directed to the COVID-19 Assessment Center.
Flu shots will be available the second week of October. We will be booking shots by appointment only to minimize traffic in the office and to ensure that we order sufficient stock.
It’s more important than ever to get a flu shot this year. The Flu shot will be available in Ontario very shortly. Flu vaccines will be offered for our patients who currently have booked appointments, while supplies last. You can also get your shot at your local pharmacy. We will update the website and voicemail if we are granted permission to organize a drive-through flu shot clinic For those paediatric patients or patients wishing to get a flu shot for the first time ever, please note that TWO shots spaced one month apart will be required.

Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread and reduce the impact of infectious diseases, whetherit’s seasonal flu or childhood infections. A safe and effective vaccine(s) for COVID-19 will protect us against the novel coronavirus and will be an important step to safely resume normal life in Canada and around the world. The Government of Canada is working on all possible fronts to secure access to safe and effective vaccines and related supplies for Canadians. Here is what Canadians need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine. Learn More Here
Dr. Wright and staff would like to sincerely thank our patients for their patience and understanding during these challenging times. We want to reassure you that we are working tirelessly every week to develop innovative ways to continue to meet your health care needs.
