If you are a new patient and have been referred through an emergency room to see one of our surgeons, PLEASE DO NOT CALL OUR UNIT. We do understand that you are injured and that you would like your appointment as soon as possible. However, your referral must be triaged first and sent to the most appropriate surgeon who specializes in your problem. This triage process may take as long as 72 hours and then you will be called for an appointment . We hope that you will understand this administrative process. If you call before this triage has been done, unfortunately, our personnel will not be able to clarify when you will be seen.
