What our doctors can’t do

Medical emergencies

Virtual care is not meant for emergencies. In an emergency, please call 911 or go to the ER.

Some examples include:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Major trauma
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
Controlled medications

Our doctors cannot prescribe narcotics.

Some examples include:

  • Narcotics, such as oxycodone, sold under brand names such as Percocet and OxyContin

  • Stimulant medications to treat ADHD such as brand names Ritalin, Adderall, and Vyvanse
Disability & school forms

We can't fill out WSIB or school absence forms.

These forms tend to be complex and require an in-person doctor visit.

Sick notes cannot be backdated beyond one week.

Sick notes for absences greater than a week cannot be provided, either.
