Medication Renewals
It is the responsibility of patients to keep track of their medication renewal dates
and to contact the pharmacy 2 weeks prior to arrange for renewals.
Medication Renewal (non diabetic medication)

Contact your pharmacy 2 weeks prior to requiring a medication renewal and request that the pharmacy fax the office a "request for renewal of medication".  Fax: 519-853-5242

Your practitioner will review the "request for renewal of medication" and either fax back the renewal to the pharmacy or have the staff contact you to arrange appointment.

 

This process can take: 

1-2 business days for patients of Dr. N. Alshakarji and Dr. A. Raouf-Alkadhimi and 

3-5 business days for patients of Dr. D. Jayalath and Dr. R. Abboud.

Diabetic Medication Renewal

Every 3 months a diabetic specific appointment is required to renew diabetic medications and assess diabetic patients specifically in regards to their diabetes.

It is suggested that the 3 month diabetic appointment is booked immediately following the current diabetic appointment.

 

1-2 weeks prior to the 3 month diabetic appointment, the diabetic blood work should be completed; unless otherwise advised by your practitioner. 

If the suggested time for processing has not been provided, the Walk-In Clinic is available.

The directions on this page apply to RENEWALS of medications that patients are currently taking.  When requesting changes to medications, starting new medications or resuming discontinued medications an appointment is REQUIRED with your family physician.
ANTIBIOTICS are NOT renewed.  An appointment is required with your family physician for reassessment!
