To book your own appointment please call the clinic to speak to a nurse clinician.
You will be seen within a week. At the intake you will meet with a nurse and a social worker. You may have lab work done and will leave with an appointment with an Adult Infectious Disease Specialist.
If you have been referred to the program by your doctor, our booking clerk will contact you to book your appointment.
We recommend that all patients book their next appointment before they leave the clinic.
We recommend you book an appointment as we may not be able to accommodate drop-ins.
If you need to cancel or change your appointment, please call our reception desk: 604-875-2212
We know confidentiality is extremely important to you. We will
not disclose your HIV status or any other of your health
information without your consent unless we are obliged to do so by law.
Our clinic nurse will ask your permission to obtain medical information from
your family doctor. This will help us understand your medical history and
current medical problems.
With your consent, our clinic will send a
letter after each clinic visit to your family doctor to keep them up to date
about your progress and care plan. The receptionist will ask if you are still
seeing the same family doctor at every clinic visit to ensure that we are
sending information only to the doctor that you have authorized.
