Important message regarding VM-Med’s response to the current COVID-19 crisis
At VM-Med, the health and safety of our patients, our staff and our community are a top priority.
That is why, in light of the current COVID-19 crisis, and in accordance with recommended safety guidelines, we are limiting certain non-urgent services at our clinic for an indefinite period.
However, we realize that there is still very much a need for many of the diagnostic services that we offer. For that reason, we are remaining open during this time with limited staff and services and will continue to provide the following to our patients:
- diagnostic medical imaging exams including MRIs, diagnostic ultrasounds, PET/CT, nuclear medicine and CT scans;
- our Breast Centre will continue to accept and see new cases for urgent diagnosis;
- our specialist clinics and our family medicine department will continue to take appointments for urgent or diagnostic matters not related to COVID-19;
- all follow-up cases deemed urgent by our doctors will be seen at the clinic.
Previously Scheduled Non-Urgent Appointments:
If you were scheduled for a screening appointment at our Breast Centre, or were scheduled for other non-urgent appointments, you will be contacted to advise you that your appointment will be moved to a later date. We will provide patients with a new appointment date once non-essential services quarantining has been lifted.
Since COVID-19 recommendation guidelines may change in the coming days or weeks, our appointment policies may change. We will ensure to keep you updated on this page with any changes to our policies.
Patient screening for COVID-19 & social distancing within VM-Med:
As a dedicated health-care provider, we are urging you to continue following COVID-19 government guidelines closely. If you are experiencing symptoms of the virus, please call 1-877-644-4545.
For precautionary measures, any patient being seen at our clinic will be required to complete a COVID-19 risk assessment questionnaire. Patients deemed at risk will not be able to be seen at the clinic and will be directed to call the number listed above. The clinic will also be placing waiting room chairs 3 feet apart to ensure adequate social distancing.
If you have questions regarding an existing appointment, or wish to schedule a future appointment, the fastest way to reach us is online: https://www.vmmed.com/contact-us
Alternatively, you can reach us by telephone at 514-933-2778. Please remain patient with us as we have fewer staff members available and our regular business hours may be affected by the current crisis.
We look forward to serving you again soon.
