Telephone Consultation

These consultations are not offered. Please book an appointment if you would like to speak to a physician.

Behavior

If a patient is rude and/or aggressive they will be requested to leave the clinic immediately and the appointment/walk-in visit will be cancelled. In worst cases, 911 will be called and the person responsible will be reported to Police

Confidentiality

We respect your confidentiality. You must provide us with written, witnessed consent form in order to release your medical information to anyone (even a parent, a counselor or a spouse), unless you are with the person at the time of disclosure.

Teaching Clinic

Forest lane medical clinic is proud to host University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine Medical Students and Resident doctors at this clinic. Medical students are trained to take medical histories and perform certain physical examinations. The supervising doctor makes the diagnosis and decides on management with the medical student. Resident doctors see patients with less direct supervision (as they have graduated medical school). A resident doctor can diagnose and treat your condition, and will have a supervisor readily available. The supervising doctor is responsible to ensure that your problems are accurately addressed. You may be asked to see a Medical Student or Resident Doctor and we encourage you to allow them to facilitate us with your care.
If you do not want to see a student or resident doctor, please inform the staff or the student/resident and we accommodate your request for that visit.

Termination of Doctor-Patient Relationship

For best possible health care for the patient, a strong doctor-patient relationship is needed. When this relationship becomes compromised it may be terminated. If this occurs, we will provide emergency medical care for one month or when the patient finds a new family doctor.

After Hours

If our services are required outside the normal hours you will be requested to dial 811 (Health Link).
