With the number of new cases rising in regions across the province, the Ontario Government has recently announced new province wide lockdown restrictions.
While these restrictions do involve the closure of all non-essential businesses, as healthcare facilities, our clinics remain unaffected by these restrictions and remain open for in-person care.

CONTINUING YOUR CARE VIRTUALLY:
For those patients who are nervous about in-person care, our clinics offer a safe, secure and effective virtual care option to help ensure that, for these patients, staying safe and receiving much needed clinical care does not have to be a binary choice. To learn more about continuing care though our virtual care program, please visit our Virtual Care program page.
As always, and on behalf of all of us at Physiomed, I want you to know that we are here for you. We’ll have further updates as needed but, in the meantime, please stay safe.
