How can I contact the clinic?
Patients can call the OB/GYN Clinic at 902-629-8801.
The clinic is located at The Mount, 143 Mount Edward Road, 3rd floor (North entrance) in Charlottetown.
What services are provided?
The Obstetric and Gynecology Clinic shares 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 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 clinic's intake staff will contact you with a list of your appointments.
The clinic sees 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?
Due to the current volume and demand, staff are not able to provide an estimated wait time. Please do not call to request this information. Once your appointment is scheduled according to your triage level, you will be contacted with an appointment date and time. If you experience worsening or concerning symptoms, please arrange an appointment with your primary care provider as an updated referral may be required. If an updated referral is sent, the obstetrician/gynecologist will review the new referral and triage accordingly.
What if I can’t make it to my appointment?
Due to the number of patients 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.
