PRENATAL CARE

The Community Care Clinic exists to provide temporary family medicine services to anyone who requires it and is intended to be a shared practice.

If you continue to access services here, you will eventually meet several physicians who work fly-in-fly-out on rotation. Your file, records, and results will be maintained at the clinic regardless of which physician you see ensuring that you can access both quality and timely care.

If you decide that you would prefer to work with a single provider, you can request your file be transferred to another clinic at any time.

What if I miss the dates for specific testing?

Discuss what can be done with the physician. Sometimes testing can occur early, late, or not at all.

Yes, after your results have been reviewed by a doctor, you can take a print out. Please inquire at reception for details.

I want to see an obstetrician; can you refer me?
