Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
With COPD being one of the leading causes for hospitalizations, this program provides in-depth knowledge to our patients about COPD, how to control symptoms and how to avoid complications. We focus on providing you with valuable education about COPD, we optimize your treatment plan, provide a personalized action plan, review inhalation technique and respiratory therapy, offer 1:1 counselling for smoking cessation, and make sure your immunizations are up-to-date.
Although asthma is a life-long condition, it does not need to affect how you live your life. With proper education and treatment, people with asthma can live a normal, healthy, active lifestyle. Our program will provide you with 1:1 counselling to ensure your treatment plan is the best choice for your needs. We will provide close follow-up in person or virtually, ensure inhalation techniques are correct and gear your asthma action plan to prevent flares or exacerbations.
Please call our office at 905-898-2240 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
After Hours Care
If I am sick after work hours do I have to go to the hospital?
If you think it's an emergency, you should go to the nearest hospital. However, you should be aware that there are several alternatives for you and your family after hours.
For example, our Family Health Team offers extended hours Monday through Thursday. We would advise you to call us prior to visiting a clinic.
As an enrolled patient you also have access to the Telephone Health Advisory Service where a registered nurse will provide you with advice about what to do about your concern, and with your permission, report back to your Physician. (1-866-553-7205). This is an after hours service, which is available Monday to Friday, between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m., weekends and holidays.
Telehealth Ontario also provides free access to a registered nurse 24/7 at 1-866-797-0000. A nurse can provide both health advice on a specific concern or general health information. They do not diagnose and do not replace your physician.
