Upon arrival, every patient must use hand sanitizer before entering and upon leaving the clinic.
All patients and accompanying persons are encouraged to wear a face mask (cloth or medical) upon arrival and for the duration of their visit. The mask or face covering should cover your nose, mouth and chin, without gapping.
No food or beverages allowed inside the clinic.
We have set up hand hygiene stations with hand sanitizer throughout the clinic. Clinic rooms will be disinfected between patients.
Installation of plexiglass dividers at the front reception desk are in place to better protect our staff and patients. All health cards will be scanned visually (i.e., “hands free”).
Physicians, nurses and staff will be wearing personal protective equipment. Avoid handshaking or any physical contact with any of our staff.
When paying for private/Non-OHIP procedures, contactless payment preferred (debit or credit card).
Your health and safety are our primary concerns. Please note that while we do our best to minimize the risk of COVID-19, by entering this office, you are acknowledging that all exposure risk cannot be eliminated.
Lawrence Park Cardiology is committed to keeping patients safe. We continue to accept new cardiology referrals and follow ups from all over Ontario. Our staff cardiologists and internal medicine specialists are seeing patients remotely (virtual care + telemedicine). Patients who need to be seen in person are evaluated in our clinic.
Our goal is to keep Ontario patients safe, out of the hospital and reduce the need for hospital resource over utilization during this difficult time. If your patient or you are a patient who needs to be seen please click contact us to make an appointment and it will be arranged as possible as possible. We are able to accommodate consultations within 24-48 hours.
