New Feature Available for Private Diagnostics!
We get a lot of calls and emails for private diagnostic clinics. In the past, we would assist in making the arrangements for someone to get a MRI, CT Scan, Colonoscopy, EMG and so on. A non-refundable fee of $100 was required to make the arrangements for the person to pay for our time and expertise on knowing right where to send you. Due to the influx of emails and calls we get for these, we had to think of a better way to field these inquiries to make the most of everyone’s time and money.
We now offer a list of all the private facilities, that we are aware of, available to you in Canada and a few cross border options for: MRI, CT Scan, Colonoscopy/Endoscopy, EMG, ECHO and Biopsy. These are the most requested services we get inquiries for. The list you receive will have the facility name, location, contact information, ie. phone number and email, and cost.
Most facilities require a referral. Not all are willing to provide a cost to you unless you have a referral, therefore, we give a ‘starts at’ or ‘ranges from’ ballpark. Once you submit your referral and they have reviewed it, an exact cost can be given to you. In some instances, you might be requested to submit your doctor’s clinical notes.
EMG, echocardiogram (ECHO) and biopsy do not have many options within Canada, therefore, the list will be short. Not all provinces have private facilities. You are also not able to go to a private facility within your own province with the exception of Quebec and for MRI or CT Scan. It is also important to note that while we will keep the most up to date pricing, it is subject to change at any time. With COVID still an issue, some facilities have shut down temporarily.
Trying to locate a private facility within Canada is an easy google search, however, getting the accurate information and someone to call you back with pricing requires a lot of time and follow up. The value of this is that you can have a complete list with private facilities’ phone numbers, email address and approximate cost on options available to you. It will help you make an informed decision quickly as to whether or not you wish to wait for the system to get you in or to pay out of pocket.
