Important note about Scheduling: 

Please be aware that if an urgent care or complex need arises during the course of a clinical day Dr. Patriquin may need to reschedule your phone visit. This is the unfortunate task we are faced with as limited resources become even more limited during the pandemic. We appreciate your patience as we try and meet the needs of all our patients, but realize that this is also difficult for everyone. Admin or Dr. Patriquin will notify you of this change and every effort will be made to try and accommodate an alternate time the same day or you may be asked to rebook. If it appears that you yourself have a more urgent need than would be served by a later appointment, then please ensure you secure your care by calling 811, 911, mobile crisis or visit the nearest emergency room. Please do not wait if it can’t wait. There will also be times that the staff and providers at Living Well will themselves need to self-isolate due to other viral illnesses, a pending swab result or if they visited one of the locations identified by public health as having been high risk. Please appreciate the efforts we must all endure to ensure the health and safety of all our community and ourselves as providers and our own families. This too protects you. We appreciate your patience as we try and navigate, facilitate and provide the best possible care under the extreme challenge of care under Covid. We will get through this stronger together. Now more than ever we need each other.
