What's Happening at the Clinic

  •  
    As changes with COVID 19 keep evolving and changing rapidly we have set up a new 
    Athens District Family Health Team

    with regular updating information

    In the midst of the continuing developments with COVID-19 Pandemic, we are doing our best to provide timely health care, while considering the safety of our Athens Family Health Team (ADFHT) patients, employees and community.  We are implementing changes to reduce unnecessary in person office visits. 
    Please do not walk into the office without an appointment. 

    The Corona Virus (COVID-19) requirements in healthcare keep changing rapidly.  Please note changes in how we currently deliver services below: 
    • Please do not walk into the office, please CALL first if you have questions or concerns about your health
    • We are cancelling/rescheduling all elective appointments (physicals, routine non-urgent checkups)
    • We will provide acute care appointments first by PHONE CALL with provider.  If during the phone call the provider feels an office assessment is needed, an appointment will be booked.
    • For scheduled in-office appointments please arrive on time.  Do not arrive early for any appointments as we are scheduling so that no patient to patient contact, so not come early, come alone (one helper if needed), do not bring children to your appointment.  We are screening everyone coming in the building for appointments for fever and symptoms upon their arrival.  
    • Please be assured that our exam rooms are being disinfected after each patient visit and common areas are disinfected frequently.
    • Evening clinics will remain open for now, however the door will be locked, again no walk ins.  Please KNOCK on the door as we are screening each person entering the building.
    • LifeLabs remains open in our building by appointment only, after screening when booking.   
    • If you are experiencing mild symptoms (fever, cough) please self-quarantine at home in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, especially to the more vulnerable population.
     
    Mental Health Counselling
    We realize this can certainly be a stressful time for many and you may be experiencing anxiety.  We currently do not have our regular counsellor Mitch Talasan from LLGAMH Rapid Access Counselling in our Athens office, but she is working remotely.  Good news is you can still call her each Wednesday @ (613)342-2262 (Ext 5372) to talk with her.  If you get her voicemail simply leave a message and she will return your call. 
    You can also speak to any of the Counsellors at LLGAMH for Rapid Access Counselling any of the weekdays 9:00 to 4:00 by calling (613) 342-2262.
