To make an appointment, ask your family/walk-in doctor, midwife or specialist to fax a referral to our office. Appointments will NOT be provided without a referral.
What to do before your appointment
Know if you have valid Ontario health insurance (OHIP) and bring your health card or insurance documents.
Bring with you important documents (e.g. ultrasound, results, reports) about your problem and a list of your medications.
For IUD insertion appointments only: if your referring doctor has provided you a prescription for IUD you will need to fill the prescription at a pharmacy and bring the IUD. You do NOT need to bring an IUD if your appointment is to discuss if the IUD is right for you.
Why do I need a Referral to see Dr. Yeung?
Your family doctor keeps track of all your medical records and provides routine care like pap tests. Your doctor may send you to see a specialist if they think specific expertise is necessary to diagnose or treat you.
A referral means someone recommends you to another service. In health care, it usually means a request from your doctor to see a specialist like Dr. Yeung. Specialists are doctors who have completed advanced education and training in a specific area of medicine. You will need a letter of referral from your family doctor or walk-in doctor.
Once your doctor has faxed a letter of referral to Dr. Yeung's office, her office will contact you to schedule an appointment.
After seeing Dr. Yeung, she will report back to your referring doctor, who is your main contact and who coordinates your healthcare with input from specialists and other healthcare professionals as needed.
The process is the same whether you see your family doctor or visit a walk-in clinic.
