COVID-19 Update

January 12, 2021
The government has imposed province-wide COVID-19 restrictions.
Technically, York Vein Clinic is not restricted, because the business is owned and operated by a physician, and regulated health professionals are listed in Schedule 2 of Ontario Regulation 82/20 as businesses that may stay open.
However, I have decided to be cautious and continue treating only veins that are medically significant. We will stop offering the treatment of spider veins, since they have only cosmetic significance.
I will post again when there is new information.
If you are coming for an appointment, we ask for your help by following these instructions:
  1. Do not come for an appointment if you are sick or have been sick in the previous two weeks.
  1. Do not come for an appointment if you have been in contact with someone within the previous month who has the virus.
  1. When you arrive, do not come directly into the office. Call or text us, then wait in your vehicle until we invite you in. We will only do so when we have a treatment room into which we can immediately usher you.
  1. Come by yourself. Do not bring a friend or family member unless you have mobility issues and require assistance or you need a translator. If you are required to have a driver (eg. for endovenous laser treatments), your driver must wait in the vehicle.
  1. Wear a mask. 
  1. No drop-in visits please (eg. to purchase support hose). Please call for an appointment.
Meanwhile, stay home, stay safe, look after your families, and be kind to one another.
All the best for the New Year! 2021 will eventually bring an end to the pandemic. It will likely take until next fall to see it behind us, but the end will come!
