We want your experience as a patient at McMaster Family Practice to be a positive one. One way we achieve this is to provide you with timely access to your health care provider.
We do our best to give you an appointment within 24 to 48 hours of your phone call.
If you are booking a follow up appointment, we will find a time based on your health care provider’s next non-urgent availability, which may take one to two weeks to arrange.
If you have a health concern outside of our regular clinic hours, there is still a doctor available by phone to help you.
Calling us will be faster than going to a walk-in clinic!
- Call us at (905) 546-9885
- Press #1 when prompted
- You’ll then be connected with our on-call doctor who can speak with you about your health concern.
24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
We’re here for you during all public holidays, including Christmas Day!
If you feel your health condition may be life-threatening, immediately call 911 for Emergency Medical Services.
When you call us outside of regular hours, the on-call doctor you speak with may book you into a weekend clinic.
This clinic is held at Stonechurch Family Health Centre in Hamilton at 1475 Upper Ottawa Street. Weekend clinics are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and some holidays.
You can also make an appointment to be seen in this clinic by calling (905) 574-1444.
