INTAKE POLICY


Dr. James Carson will see physician consults, therapist referrals and self-referrals. We encourage referrals to be acute sport, recreation or dance injuries, including  medical issues related to sport / exercise, with a priority to injuries or issues that are less than 6 months in duration. We discourage referrals that are concussions (as we can no longer see you on a timely basis), MVA (motor vehicle accident), WSIB or legal concern patients and patients who have been injured for more than 6 months.

NOTE: All new patients are required to complete an intake form, prior to making their first appointment. Once received, we will contact you.

ON VISIT


Patients must bring and present a valid OHIP card to all visits. The government will not cover medical services for anyone without a valid health card. A fee for a regular medical visit for non-OHIP patients must be paid prior to seeing the doctor. Official receipts are provided. Omit?


Please bring shorts/T-shirt/tank top for more convenient physical examinations.

Please note that sports medicine patients should expect to be seen by medical students or residents, as well as Dr. Carson or Dr. Kraft, as this is a University of Toronto teaching facility.


All information you provide us with, is confidential. Please view our privacy policy here for further details.



APPOINTMENT COURTESY

We ask that patients keep their discussions with the doctor to a MAXIMUM OF THREE QUESTIONS per appointment in order to decrease waiting time. Consider booking your Annual Health Exam to go over all your medical concerns with the doctor during one appointment. 

Please be sure to cancel your appointment with 24 hours notice if you will be unable to attend as planned. All missed appointments, without sufficient notice, will incur appropriate charges.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter as it affects all of us.
