Anyone know wait times?

New to area and don’t have a Gynecologist. Having a “girl issue” and need to get seen asap. Is it months waiting for apt getting a referral from walk in clinic dr? Would I be better off just going to the ER?

  4. I got a new one within a year because my previous one lost hospital privileges. I’m with Dr. Morris now and he’s fantastic. Had surgery with him yesterday. No pain. I heard good things about Dr. Splinter too.

  5. It took me six visits to the ER to get a gynaecologist, they gave me two referrals and put an urgent rush on it. I had one within a month after that

    It takes a long time to get into a gyno if your not pregnant. Go to the clinic and get a referral sent in though

    You get in faster if it’s a referral from a family doctor. But it shouldnt take to long to get one. Mirka, splinter, or Jacco are amazing gynos.

  10. I just got a referral done from a clinic, took about two months to get an appointment, and that appointment was about 2 months after the referal was sent

  11. Dependent on the issue, you can also try the health unit in rainbow centre, they do pap test, STD testing, not sure what else but I’m sure there’s more.

  16. My family do for is accepting patients and shes is FANTASTIC. Look up Dr.Sandra Ferroni-Fortier. I am blessed to have her. If you can’t wait, you can go to any walk in clinic and they will perform an internal exam and can help you. 🙂

    Goodluck!!!!!

  18. Elizabeth Lucille Gagnon its a fairly fast process, get a referral from your family doctor and you should get an appointment a few months after your referral

  21. Elizabeth Lucille Gagnon you can always try. I didn’t see my family doctor for about 8 years before I got pregnant, I was still in their system 🙂
    You can always get a clinic to give you a referral as well!

  28. I say if u need to be seen ASAP, go to emerge. They will assess and deal with the issue and send a referral to a OBGYN if u dont have a family Dr to go to

  31. Can take a few years unless your half dying. I had to go down south they took care of me. But then i finally got gyno here amd now i have to go back down south to see a specialist. Good luck but maybe ask to see if northbay or barrie is faster.

  33. I am waiting to see a gynaecologist, 1 year wait lol

  34. Go to your local walk in clinic and ask for a referral. The wait time will vary. You will be seen depending on the severity of the problem. Also, if you’re willing to go out of town, the wait could be much less. Hope this helps☺️

  35. I imagine that whatever it is you have, can mostly be dealt with at a walk-in clinic. If it’s sexually transmitted infections, I would perhaps make an appoint with the nurse practitioner at the health unit.

  36. Maybe in the meantime garnish it with a wedge of lemon just to keep it fresh.

  37. Just go to the after hours clinic.

  39. Well, if you want speed, you could get pregnant , they take that very seriously and get you in fast lol. Other then that it can take absolute months. Best suggestion is to go to the health unit (has to be the one in the downtown mall, they specialize in sexual health whereas the other ones are just like vaccines and such). Going to emerge is basically useless in Sudbury unless it’s something major. They will just rush treat you and throw you out the door after making you wait a ridiculous amount of time . Also. To get a family doctor in town join health care connect, when a family doctor has availability they will contact you. A lot of doctors in Sudbury grab patients directly off that list

  40. I believe the woman center in the rainbow center downtownhas one or two days during the week in the afternoon where no appointment is necessary it’s just walk ins.
