Access to Services

Orthotics

Referrals for orthotic services are received directly from medical and surgical specialists. The specific orthotic device required and clinical urgency, as outlined by the specialist, decide whether the client is scheduled for an upcoming appointment upon receipt of the referral or placed on our custom orthotic waitlist. Acute and urgent clients are scheduled immediately. Waitlist clients are scheduled and notified of an appointment according to their identified priority/urgency and first available appointment.

Prosthetics

The referral process to access prosthetics services is different. Clients requiring prosthetic services must be referred by a physiatrist at the Outpatient Prosthetic Clinic. A consultation request must first be sent to Dr. Fink, Dr. Chrusch or Dr. Kraushaar and the client will then be scheduled to attend an upcoming Outpatient Prosthetic Clinic. Prosthetists participate in the Outpatient Prosthetic Clinic and a referral for prosthetic services is generated at the clinic by a physiatrist. Urgent and acute Prosthetic referrals received in the Orthotics Prosthetics Department are prioritized.
