Frequently Asked Questions
Your healthcare professional is here to help. Consult her/him.
Here are some answers :
Doctors who have to be temporarily absent are not replaced. However, all test results received (blood test, imaging) are checked by colleagues.
If your doctor is away and you have a minor emergency, use the walk-in clinic. The doctor will have access to your medical record.
Your pharmacist can prescribe certain medications for a minor health problem or as a preventive measure, they can extend a prescription and adjust your treatments according to certain criteria. Don't hesitate to ask your pharmacist what they can do to help you.
You can access your laboratory results on the Québec Health Booklet

In accordance with the most recent guidelines, unless otherwise specified by your doctor or health professional, consultations are in person.
In some special cases, the doctor may offer a teleconsultation to a patient they already know for the follow-up of a chronic problem (eg diabetes).
Patients not consulting with their own family doctor and patients who have a new health condition should be assessed in person.
Yes, the doctor will usually try to call you back a 2nd time. If they fail to reach you after two calls, they will consider you to have missed your appointment. The time for my appointment has passed and I still haven't seen the doctor (or received a call). Is this normal?
We do our best to respect the appointment time. However, it is common for an appointment to take longer than expected and delay other appointments of the day. Be patient. There is no point in asking the secretaries what time you will actually see the doctor.
If it is a first appointment, be sure to note your various health problems (e.g. asthma, heart problem, ...) as well as the tests you have had in recent years.
Before a follow-up appointment with your family doctor, make a list of the issues you want to discuss with the doctor and mention this list at the beginning of the consultation. As consultations are limited in duration, the doctor will be able to judge which problems are priorities.
Have an up-to-date list of your medications. Check in advance if certain medications need to be renewed. Vérifiez d’avance si certains médicaments doivent être renouvelés.
When you subscribe to Québec Health Booklet, you have access to your medical imaging results and your sampling results, including blood and urine tests.
