Book a Physician Visit

Need to speak with an MD promptly? Allow us to help you...

British Columbia Residents (Eligible for MSP Services)

If you have a new, mild, self-limiting condition, or if you use a medication that requires refill authorization or reassessment, please book an appointment with one of our collaborative care physician's, through our Avicenna web-service. There is no charge to BC permanent residents for this basic medical service. During your appointment you will have a 5-10 minute phone consult a Medical Doctor (MD) carrying an active BC CPSID. 

 

Service to Non-Residents (Not Registered under MSP)

If you are not a BC resident or, if have a current prescription written outside of Canada and wish to consult the opinion a Canadian Physician, you may book an appointment for a fee at the physician's current rate of service. If your visit is not covered by BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), you will be contacted by Avicenna to arrange pre-payment ahead of your appointment. Please note that booking an appointment does not guarantee that a physician will be able to prescribe medication; however, he or she will do so according to their best judgement. If you are not comfortable with this type of consultancy, please visit a physician local to you.
