The clinic is located at The Mount, 141 Mount Edward Road, 3rd floor (North entrance) in Charlottetown.
What services are provided?
Obstetricians and Gynecologists share in the care of prenatal patients with primary care providers. At 28 weeks gestation, a referral is made by your primary care provider and your care is then transferred to the OB/GYN Clinic at approximately 34 weeks gestation. Some patients who have more serious complications in their pregnancy may receive care from this clinic at an earlier date. The clinics intake staff will contact you with a list of your appointments.
These physicians see patients for gynecological reasons such as: cancer/suspected cancer/cancer follow-up; issues that require surgery/follow-up; colposcopy; menstruation problems; organ prolapse and urinary symptoms; menopause; infertility; sexual dysfunction; among many others.
Do I need a referral?
Yes, you must be referred by a physician or nurse practitioner.
What is the process for getting an appointment for a consultation?
Once your primary care provider sends the referral, a clinic physician will triage the level of urgency. If it is felt to be urgent, you will receive a phone call as soon as possible and be seen within four weeks. If triaged as a level 1 or 2, you will be contacted when an appointment time becomes available. If you are triaged as elective, a letter is sent back to the referring physician or nurse practitioner indicating this, and you and your primary care provider can decide how to best proceed while you are waiting to be seen.
What do I do if I have waited and still not heard from the clinic?
You can call 902-629-8801 to speak with the clinics referral intake staff. You will be given an approximate idea of the expected wait. If you feel you are waiting too long and your symptoms have gotten worse, please return to your primary care provider and ask for an updated referral to be sent. With more information it may change the level of triage; which may shorten your wait.
What if I can’t make it to my appointment?
Due to the number of Island women waiting for an appointment, it is very important to call the clinic as far in advance as possible to cancel or change your appointment, so another person can be seen. If you feel you no longer need your appointment, please contact the clinic so your appointment time can be given to another patient.
