ATTENTION ASTHMATICS: As long as your asthma is WELL CONTROLLED, studies have shown that asthmatics are NOT at higher risk for getting Covid-19 or having more severe issues with Covid-19. Please ensure you are taking your maintenance (prevention) asthma medication REGULARLY to keep your asthma under good control, try to maintain social distancing when possible, wear a mask when in public indoors (including at school/work), practice frequent hand-washing and avoid touching your face and eyes. It is ultimately your decision to return to school/work, but as long as you are practicing the proper precautions as stated above, and your asthma maintains well controlled, going back to school/work should not be an issue. If your asthma is not well controlled, please see your doctor to discuss this.

All biologic injections, including Xolair, Nucala, Fasenra and Dupixent, will be deferred to injection clinics.

New Patient Information Questionnaire



Information for Patients for Virtual Care as disclosed by the Ontario Medical Association

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer Virtual Care to make sure we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some of these technologies are provided by the Province. Others have been provided by vendors like Google, or Apple to help make discussions with your care provider as easy as possible during these difficult times. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility if necessary, for a physical examination. 

We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no video or audio tools are ever completely secure. These is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using video or audio communication tools. To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:

* Understand that this method of communication is not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room.

*Use a private computer/device (i.e., not an employer's or third party's computer/device) and a secure internet connection. For example, using a personal computer or tablet is more secure than at a library, and your access to the internet on your home network will generally be more secure than an open guest Wi-Fi connection.

You should also understand that virtual care is not a substitute for in-person communication or clinical examinations, where appropriate, or for attending the Emergency Department when needed (including any urgent care that may be required).

If you are concerned about using video or audio tools for virtual care, you can ask our office to arrange for you to visit a different healthcare provider or other health care center where you can be seen in person. However, please note that visiting a health care provider in person comes with a higher risk of coming in contact with COVID-19 and the possibility of spreading the virus.

By providing your information, you agree to let us collect, use, or disclose your personal health information through video or audio communications (while following applicable privacy laws) in order to provide you with care.
