In order to be seen by a specialist, patients must first present a referral form issued by the patients’ referring physician. The referral must have been issued within the past 12 months. Each referral received at Polyclinic Specialty Medicine is screened by a specialist to determine if additional medical information from the referring physician is required, this might include investigations such as recent bloodwork, any imaging related to the diagnosis, or other specialist reports. In some instances, patients will be required to bring CDs of X-Rays, MRIs, or any other imaging related to the diagnosis if the specialist finds it necessary. Failure to follow instructions may result in your appointment being re-scheduled.
