Operation Protocol During COVID-19 Pandemic


We are dedicated to the safety of our patients and team members. Due to health concerns with the world pandemic we are following recommendations of our governing agencies and are committed to ensuring a safe environment in our diagnostic centers.

As the new reality hits Canadians, we are quickly adapting to the situation and have implemented new standards to our practice in order to minimize the risk of spread of COVID-19.

The following process has been implemented:

- screening patients prior to scheduling appointments. If you:

  1. Have recently traveled abroad
  2. Have been in contact with someone who is known to have the Corona-virus
  3. Have flu-like symptoms (cough, difficulty breathing, fever, runny nose, sore throat etc.). For a full list of COVID-19 symptoms click here
  • If the answer is YES to any of the above we will schedule your appointment 14 days after the symptoms and/or self-isolation period have passed.
  • You may call Telehealth Ontario if you are experiencing the above listed symptoms at: 1-866-797-0000 or proceed to the nearest assessment center or emergency room if symptoms are severe.
