COVID IS STILL HERE
In the office we will continue to mask . No one should try to get COVID. Long Covid remains an unsolved dilemma with concerns about long term cognitive(brain) dysfunction. There continues to be a low level of Covid in the community and Public Health has recommended another booster for those at higher risk(anyone over 65 or immunosuppressed) if you have not had a booster in the past 6 months. Fully vaccinated is your primary series of 2 or 3 doses plus at least one booster. Covid levels would decrease further in the province if vaccination rates increased !!!
PLEASE GET VACCINATED IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD A BOOSTER IN 6 MONTHS
RE-ROSTERING AND THE BLOCK FEE
Most patients have re-rostered(resigned officially with the practice) but surprisingly not all active patients have re-rostered to maintain their spot in the practice.
Only rostered patients will be eligible to partake in FHO annual block fee for fax prescription renewals/notes/etc (please see our website for further information regarding block fees). For those rostered patients who do not choose to sign up for the block fee, our historical (from old Dr. Foster times) 30$ pharmacy fax prescription renewal fee has been in effect for the past 6 months
All non-rostered patients must be seen in office for their prescription renewals. Please bring all your bottles of medication for us to check as sometimes we are surprised to find out what meds you are taking or not
Only Rostered patients
will be able to use email correspondence for medical issues when deemed clinically appropriate by the physician (i.e. Sending in physician requested information such as pictures/blood pressure readings/sugar
All non rostered patients will need to come into the office to have their issues dealt with.
Rostering forms and transfer of medical record forms are available for pick up from our office.
DR. Maurana BRUSH
I know many of you have had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Brush when she covered my practice during my maternity leave and then continued to work as a locum replacement doctor for me.
She has officially started her own practice in our office and will no longer be providing regular care to any patients on my roster. Unfortunately she is unable to accept any of my patients into her practice.
