Your first steps

You’ll find we will do everything we can to make getting your care at ECMC as quick and easy as possible. It all starts with a consultation about your condition. We will discuss treatment options with you and determine how best we can serve you. You will need to bring all pertinent medical information with you:

  • Your medical records from your primary physician, with information about your condition
  • Your test results
  • Your medications list
  • Physician contact information
  • Health forms, referrals or approvals from your insurance company
  • Cash, credit card or cashier’s check
  • Picture ID and proof of Canadian citizenship

From there we can assist you in taking the proper steps with the Ministry of Health to get your procedure approved. If your request is denied, you can choose to have the procedure anyway, but then all charges will have to be paid by you, in full, prior to the procedure date.
