Stonechurch Family Health Centre is hosting a weekly small office procedures clinic for our patients.

The clinic is run by our residents and supervised by a staff physician. The Procedure Clinic aims to offer improved access to routine, non-urgent procedures including, but not limited to, skin biopsies, knee and shoulder injections, cyst removals, toenail resections, and newborn circumcisions until eight weeks of age. Referrals to the clinic can be made through your family physician, and will be booked on a first come, first serve basis.

Please note that certain procedures (cosmetic skin tag removals and certain other procedures) are not covered by OHIP. While we are happy to perform these procedures, there will be a fee charged to you for these procedures. Ask your family physician at the time of referral whether a procedure is covered or not by OHIP in order to avoid any misunderstandings at the time of your procedure.

Lastly, given the limited number of appointment times we have available each week in the clinic, we request a minimum of 24 hours’ notice for any cancellations or re-scheduling requests. No-show appointments to the procedure clinic will be charged at a rate of $50.
