A physician will be available by telephone for emergencies after hours and on weekends at 204-474-8411. The doctor you speak to will be a physician from the University Health Service.
How to make an appointment
To book an appointment, phone us at 204-474-8411 or visit our reception desk in person at 104 University Centre. Please let us know whether you would like a short appointment, for a single medical concern, or a longer appointment, for a general physical examination or counselling session. Typical office visits are scheduled for 15 minutes and complete physicals are 30 minutes.
If you are a student from Bannatyne campus, please inform us when making your appointment. We have set aside specific appointment times at the beginning and the end of each day for students not based on the Fort Garry campus.
We believe that you will receive the best care if you maintain contact with one primary physician. Please try to call in advance to book an appointment with your doctor. Travel health counselling and immunizations are available at a charge. Please fill out a travel information form available at the front desk and drop it off two weeks prior to your appointment.
Same day appointments
Depending on our doctors' availability, we reserve a limited number of appointments for same-day bookings. If you are sick and want to see a doctor right away, please book an appointment by phoning us or coming to our office when the clinic opens at 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. Same-day appointments are filled on a “first come, first serve” basis, and no more appointments will be available once each day’s appointments are booked.
Cancellations and missed appointments
If you must cancel or are running late for your appointment please call us at 204-474-8411.
If you miss an appointment or arrive more than half way through your scheduled appointment time, you will be charged $50 for an office visit or $100 for a longer appointment. These are the recommended fees approved by Doctors Manitoba. We have reserved a specific amount of time for your appointment, so if you are late, the doctor will not have enough time to provide the best care possible.
We will contact you if your test results are abnormal or concerning. If we have not contacted you, it usually means that your results were normal. However, if we have not contacted you and you would like your results, please contact us at 204-474-8411 to speak to a nurse or to book a follow up appointment with your physician.
