Appointments & Scheduling

Patients are seen by appointment only. Patients will be billed for missed appointments without 24 hours' notice of cancellation.

Due to increased demand for "same day" appointments for urgent care, the wait time for routine appointments have increased. Please allow approximately 2 - 4 weeks for routine appointments for issues such as renewal of prescriptions and blood pressure checks. Please allow 2 - 6 months for a routine physical. Wait times depend on each individual doctor.

You must provide a valid Health Card at the time of your visit. Please bring a list of medications to each appointment.

ARBOUR/PHOENIX FHO After Hours Service

The After-Hours Medical Service is for urgent care, and should not be considered a convenient substitute for routine care provided by your doctor. Your family physician is best suited to manage your health care and is generally available to see you during regular office hours. If you require any medical attention, please contact your family physician first. 

If you are suffering from chest pain or shortness of breath, please go to the closest Emergency Room, or call 9-1-1.

Should you need after-hours care, please call Telehealth at 1 (866) 553-7205

When calling Telehealth, a Nurse will triage your concerns. Should they feel you need to be seen, they will then contact the Phoenix FHO Physician who is on call. Together, they will determine the urgency of your concerns and advise you of the time and place for the provision of care.
