Information about your appointment during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is changing daily life and the operations of many businesses, schools and workplaces. There is a great deal of uncertainty and we would like you to know that the health and well being of our patients is what matters most. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC, WHO, our provincial and national governments, and hospital requirements and responding accordingly.

Below are the steps that our office is taking to help prevent the spread of the virus and support the health and well-being of our patients:

  • All in-person office appointments will be scheduled in a staggered fashion to minimize overlapping appointments and reduce the number of patients in the waiting room. 

  • Social distancing is encouraged and we ask that you come to your appointment alone if possible or limit to 1 person only. 

  • Children under the age of 16 are discouraged from accompanying you to appointments. 

  • Increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing office exam rooms and waiting-area.

  • Personal hygiene hand-sanitizer and (limited) masks will be available in the office for your use.

  • The office will remain open for scheduled appointments but if you have fever, shortness of breath, cough or sore throat please contact the office to reschedule your appointment. 

We apologize for any inconvenience and will do our best to reschedule (if required) your upcoming appointment. Please be patient with us as we work to resolve these new challenges.

If you have concerns or questions regarding your appointment you may email us: or call 647-341-0281

Office Appointments (First consultation and Follow-up visits):

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada’s public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using telephone calls for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some health concerns can be addressed with telephone consults alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to come to the office for a physical examination. 

Gynecology visits:

  • You will have the option to perform a telephone call rather than in-person office visit OR to reschedule to a later date depending on the urgency of the issue.

  • If your issue is urgent, your appointment will occur in the office and your appointment time will be staggered to minimize contact with other patients.

Obstetrical (Pregnant) visits:

  • You will continue to come in for office visits and your appointment will be staggered to minimize contact with other patients. 

Surgery and Colposcopy visits at Humber River Hospital

  • Non-emergent elective procedures will be postponed until further notice. Cancer-related or emergent procedures will continue as scheduled. 

  • Dr. Yeung’s office will be contacting you directly to discuss if this applies to your upcoming surgery or colposcopy appointment.

Hospital Appointments:

Patients who will be going to Humber River Hospital for colposcopy, surgery or pregnancy-related issues:

  • All patients arriving at the hospital and visitors will ALL be screened at the hospital entrance based on symptoms and travel history. Symptomatic (meaning fever, cough, etc) will be denied access. 

  • NO visitors under 16y of age will be allowed entry - they will be denied access. Patients coming for assessment of labour, for NST, any clinic, will not be able to bring their children.

  • Visitors (including L&D labour rooms, Birthing unit) will be limited to 1-2 at a time.

Help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses to others by:

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based sanitizer (greater than 60% alcohol), if soap and water are not available.

  • Avoid contact with others until your symptoms subside and/or you have been evaluated by a physician.

  • Cover your mouth and nose if you cough and/or sneeze into your sleeve.

  • Avoid travel while sick.

  • Please visit Health Canada for the latest COVID information and travel advisories.
