Refer a Patient

Dr. Madhani aims to see patients in a timely fashion. She has separate waitlists for general neurolgy patients and EMG/NCS patients.

WAIT TIMES GENERAL NEURO

1 month

WAIT TIMES EMG/NCS

3 months

 

 

HOW TO REFER:

 

Send referral forms by fax 604-428-7860. Please ensure up to date patient information is included in the referral. If the patient is non english speaking please include the contact number of someone who speaks English and can communicate with the patient. 

After a patient is attempted to be reached 2-3 times without success the referral will be returned with a request for new contact information. If we do not receive new contact information within 2 weeks of this request the referral will be cancelled.

If your patient has been seen by another neurologist while on the waitlist the courtesy of a cancellation of the referral would be greatly appreciated. This prevents duplicate visits which cost the healthcare system an unnecessary burden. 

 

 

COVID19 REFERRAL UPDATE:

 

Family physicians must avoid making specialist referrals via telemedicine without first fully assessing patients themselves. Most patients referred to specialists, will require an in-person assessment before referral. The Telemedicine practice standard and Referral-Consultation Process professional guideline have been revised to clarify that patients who are referred to specialists via telemedicine must be adequately investigated and treated before the referral is sent.
