McMaster Family Practice hosts a weekly procedures clinic for our patients.
The Procedure Clinic aims to offer improved access to routine, non-urgent procedures including 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 doctor.
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. Ask your family doctor at the time of referral whether or not a procedure is covered 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.
