Preparing for Your Visit

Here at ActiveCARE Physio, we realize your time is valuable. We strive to be punctual and minimize your wait time. However, we cannot always anticipate the complexity of every patient’s appointment. To allow things to proceed in a timely manner, please read through how you can prepare for your visit to prevent any unnecessary delays.


What to Bring to Your First Visit

  • Valid OHIP Card
  • Referral information from your physician
  • Any diagnostic tests you have had done such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI’s
  • If you have already had surgery elsewhere for the issue you are being seen for, please bring your operative report and related medical records
  • Please bring a list of all medications that you are currently taking, along with the dosage and frequency. Please include supplements and over the counter medicines that you take on a regular basis
  • Comfortable clothing that allows the physician to perform a thorough exam if needed (i.e.: running shoes, loose fitting clothing such as shorts, t-shirts and/or sleeveless tops for shoulder injuries)
