How to Get Referred

​​​​​You need a referral from your doctor to become a patient at the Princess Margaret Cancer Center Gastrointestinal (GI) clinic.

​​​When making a referral, your doctor will include:
  • A letter of referral
  • Relevant clinical notes
  • Tests, x-rays, pathology report and any other relevant results
How Long Does a Referral Take?

​​​Usually the doctor who referred you to the GI clinic will contact you with your appointment time. Call the doctor’s office if you do not receive information about your appointment within a week.
In the GI oncology clinic, we review all new referrals daily Monday - Friday and prioritize them. In general, we set consult appointments within 2 weeks of receiving the completed referral package. Delays can occur over holiday closures. Please do not miss your appointment as this will cause delays to your care plan. Reschedule in advance if possible.

Referral Information for Physicians
