Telemedicine Service

British Columbia Residents (MSP Registered)

If you have a mild, self-limiting condition, or use a medication that requires refill authorization or reassessment, please book an appointment with one of our collaborative care physician's. There is no direct charge to BC residents for this telemedicine service. During your appointment you will have a 5-10 minute phone consult with a Medical Doctor (MD) holding a liscence to practise medicine in Canada. 

Non-BC Residents (Not MSP Registered)

If you are not a BC resident or, if you have a prescription written outside of Canada and wish to consult a Canadian Physician, you may book an appointment at the physician's current rate. If your visit is not covered by BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), you will be contacted by Avicenna with a quote for pre-payment.
