How to Get Referred

​​​​​​All appointments with the Orthopedic Surgeons must be booked through a referral from your family physician.

In order to obtain a referral, visit your family doctor. He or she will then fax a referral, along with all appropriate medical history and test results. The Orthopaedic Surgeon's office will book the appointment with your family doctor who will contact you with the date and time.

How Long Does a Referral Take?

Usually the doctor who referred you to the Foot and Ankle Service will contact you with your appointment time. Call the doctor's office if you do not receive information about your appointment within a few weeks.
