What to expect at your 1st and subsequent appointments

Your first appointment will involve a detailed health history, including medications/supplements, diagnostic imaging (X-rays, CT scans, MRI etc.) as well as a physical assessment. T-shirt and shorts/yoga pants are recommended for appointments.

Subsequent appointments will involve a brief discussion of your ailments, reassessment of the previous appointment and further assessment of relevant areas for the current treatment.

Appointment frequency will vary and depend on each individual. Often, an appointment schedule approximately every week (up to 2 weeks) will be initially recommended. As your condition improves, appointment frequency will often decrease.

Appointment FAQs

Current Fee (Beginning Jan 1, 2021): $115.00, including HST (payable with Interac, cash or cheque)

How long are my appointments?

 

Appointments are scheduled, and planned for 60 minutes. Although some circumstances may extend an appointment beyond 60 minutes, your time and those waiting is respected throughout.

Will my appointments be covered by extended care insurance provider?

Most insurance plans will cover all, or part of the cost of your appointment. Receipts are provided for Osteopathy that you can submit for coverage (direct billing is not available through the clinic). Jason is a member of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (www.osteopathyontario.org), which does allow for insurance coverage. Since insurance plans differ from employer to employer, it is advised to check with your insurance provider for exact coverage.

* The clinic does not offer coverage through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) or OHIP. It is recommended you try visiting a physiotherapy or chiropractic clinic in the area that may provide this coverage.

What is your cancellation policy?

24 hours is required to change, or cancel an appointment. A late cancellation fee (50% of the appointment fee) will be applied to appointments cancelled with less than 24 business hours notice. Missed appointments are charged at the full rate. 

Missed appointments and late cancellations are one of the most challenging problems for a rehabilitation clinic.  It results in lost availability for the practitioner, as well as preventing the possibility of helping another patient in need. The clinic has a long waiting list of patients looking for appointment time. Please be respectful of the time of the practitioner, and other patients in need of appointment time.
