Video Appointment Frequently Asked Questions
JUMP TO SECTION:
Video appointments are "virtual"appointments through a computer, tablet, or cell phone that allow you to see the practitioner and the practitioner to see you. They are are done through a secured platform with software called Telehealth. Video appointments with us are safe, protected and confidential and meet all the requirements for the Ministry of Ontario's Health Information Protection Act.
Video appointments are available with Dr. Christina McGlashan for chiropractic care and Meera Senjaliya for physiotherapy and pelvic floor physiotherapy and Dr. Maria Galantai for Naturopathic care. Both new and existing patients can be seen by video.
Anyone can be seen for a video appointment as long as you have access to a computer, tablet, or cell phone. Both existing and new patients can be seen for Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, or Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy, and Naturopathic Care.
Video appointments allow the practitioner to see you and for you to see the practitioner. This then allows practitioners to speak with you about your health concerns and allow you to show us where your symptoms are and what you are struggling with. The practitioner can direct you through specific movements to assess you, and then let you know if they are able to help you through video or if you need to come in to the clinic for an emergency treatment. If the practitioner is able to help you through video then they can provide you with hands on self pain management techniques, exercises, stretches, and other tips to help you with your concerns. Please note we also have a new software program to allow us to send you specific exercises with video demonstrations and instructions that we may have recommended or demonstrated to you during your video appointment that you can access through your Jane (our online booking system) account!
If you are unsure whether your symptoms would be considered for an emergency in clinic treatment, please book a COMPLIMENTARY video appointment and our practitioners can speak with you directly and do a quick assessment to determine if we need to see you in the clinic. If the practitioner determines you need to be seen in the clinic they will arrange a time for you to come in and walk you through the new policies and procedures required for emergency treatments in the clinic. If the practitioner is able to help you through video then they will continue the appointment with you as described above and you will be charged a fee for the appointment.
