Frequently asked questions

How can I see a sports medicine doctor?

Dr. Galbraith is accessible by referral only. Referrals may come from other physicians, physiotherapists or chiropractors. Once we receive your referral, we will contact you to schedule an appointment. To help us be more efficient, you may be initially evaluated by one of our screening doctors who may perform an initial history and exam, recommend further imaging of the injured area, and review a focused home rehabilitative program specific to your injury and needs. This aids our Sports Medicine physician in being more efficient in their consultation with you.

How can I prepare for my appointment, especially during COVID-19?

ESM is committed to providing the best possible care - safely! Here are some helpful tips to help you prepare for your appointment: - Please arrive promptly at your appointment time. We ask that you do not come to the clinic early - we are servicing patients ahead of you and keeping everyone spaced out as much as we can (and cleaning everything in between!). - Yes - wearing a mask is recommended. We thank-you for your consideration. - Please do not bring anyone unnecessary with you. - Please use the washroom before you come to the clinic. - Please bring your own water bottle/beverage if you need one. - Please call us with credit card or extended health insurance information so payment can be contactless. If you need to pay using a card, please "tap." Cash is no longer accepted. - If possible, please book your appointment using our online booking system or by telephone. If you need to rebook in person, please bring your own pen and paper (or phone) to record your next appointment date and time. - Please do not attend your appointment if you are experiencing symptoms not related to any current chronic condition. Please call us and we will be happy to help you reschedule for a better day. Prior to arriving at the clinic, we need to ask you the COVID screening questions: 1. Have you travelled outside of Canada in the past 30 days?
