There is free street parking (although it can be difficult to find at peak hours) or you can park in the parkade (the entrance is shown in the photo and it costs $1 per hour although the first 30 minutes is free).
If you have an urgent unexpected issue (for example, a bladder infection or an ear infection) you can call first thing in the morning and we usually have a "doctor of the day" who can try to address urgent issues for you, but this is subject to availability. It is generally offered every day of the week except Sunday. Sometimes your family doctor can also fit you in if they have an extra slot. In general, it is acceptable and encouraged for you to contact us first thing in the morning if you believe you have an urgent issue that we can help with in clinic, but we cannot guarantee availability.
We are NOT a walk-in clinic. We only offer appointments to patients who have a family doctor at Wellington Medical Clinic. If you are not a patient at our clinic, our doctors may still see you on a referral basis or for certain private services. Some examples include: maternity care during pregnancy, consultations for therapeutic abortion, aviation or immigration medical, skin procedures by physician referral, etc. See our services section for more details.
Forms can be picked up between the hours of 900am – Noon and 1 – 3pm on Monday through Friday. We are closed for form pick up from Noon – 1pm and on all Saturdays.
Yes, you can book online but you can only book phone appointments and you must book with your family doctor. If you attempt to book with another doctor this will be cancelled. If you need an in-person appointment, just give us a call.
Please bear with us as we are experiencing unprecedented demand and are struggling with staffing shortages. Please be aware that we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.
