EMAIL POLICY FOR DR VINCENT

Dr. Vincent will be using email for direct patient contact effective immediately.

This email is to only be used for the following types of correspondence and under following conditions

  • You must be a patient of Dr. Vincent
  • You have read and agreed to the email policy terms and conditons and have signed the policy consent and returned it to the clinic either by dropping off at reception, by fax or by scanned attachement to an email to reception@northwoodlands.com 
  • You fully realize and agree that email is NOT for urgent questions, that email corresspondence is only monitored during usual office hours and that email reponse to questions may take up to 7 business days, or longer if I am on vacation.
  • Dr. Vincent reserves the right to terminate any patients email access at his discretion. This will usually only be done if the patient is consistently not adhereing to the rules set out in the email policy.
  • That the email service is currently a "free service" as part of being a rostered patient. Dr. Vincent reserves the right to change this free service to a paid service in the future.
  • What sort of questions/issues can this service be used for? Generally I would see email used for communication of laboratory or imaging results with explanation, saving an office visit, communicating to me information about your health, eg: blood pressure readings, blood sugar readings, changes in your family history with respect to significant new illness of a blood relative, changes in medication given to you by another physician.
  • You may use email to ask questions about and new or chronic illness that is not acute or serious in nature. Realizing that you will not likely get an immediate response as per policy.
  • You may wish to attach pictures to email eg of rashes.
  • Email should not be used to request appointments, these requests should be directed to our receptionists either by phone or email.
  • Email should not be used to ask about routine referrals, these requests should be directed to our reception email address or our booking clerk email address.
  • Remember email may not be secure and always remember it leaves a permanent record, so think before you type. For secure requests of say test results, these can be sent as a "password" protected pdf file, attached to an email. In the past I have done this occassionally and we use you 10 digit ontario health insurance number as the password to open the file. If you would rather use a different password to protect a file, than call the office to leave the new password for me.
