Starting evening of Tuesday February 6, 2024 until Saturday February 10, 2024, our network system will be undergoing an essential update. Our commitment to providing you with the best possible healthcare remains steadfast, and we appreciate your understanding during this time.

We are unable to book future appointments during this period and encourage you to call back after February 10, 2024 to book a new upcoming appointment. Please continue to call us if you need to cancel your appointment (s).
  • Prescription refill requests may be delayed. Our office encourages you to be proactive in requesting prescription refills well before your current supply runs out and before our system undergoes an update. This will help prevent interruptions in your treatment plan and ensures you have your medications when you need them.
  • Our healthcare providers will still be receiving urgent patient reports and labs through fax and will continue to connect with you regarding any urgent or abnormal results.

Office Updates

Changes in policies and procedures in response to COVID-19

  1. If you booked an appointment as a phone call or virtual visit, you do not need to physically come to our office. 
  2. You may be assessed over the phone prior to scheduling an appointment
  3. Due to the majority of our staff working from home, you may receive a call from a private number.
  4. All patients in the office are required to wear a 3 layer mask that covers you mouth and nose.  

While the province is ending its mask mandate on June 11th for health care organizations, SAFHT will continue to follow Public Health Ontario’s guidance and require all patients attending an appointment at one of our clinics to wear a mask.  This policy allows our organization to continue to keep our most vulnerable patients safe, protect our team from COVID-19 and will reduce the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak impacting our ability to deliver patient care.   We thank all our patients in advance for complying.
