The services provided by our Lactation Consultants are not funded by the government therefore we must charge for each appointment.
New Appointments: 90 minutes.
Follow-up Appointments: 60 minutes.
It is imperative that you arrive on time for your appointment. If you are late we will not extend your appointment as it creates a delay to the other patients who are scheduled after you.
Due to a lack of funding, effective January 1st 2014 we are longer able to offer a “pay-what-you-can” reduced rate nor can we waive any appointment fees. We are currently looking for funding to subsidize the appointment fees for those who are unable to pay the full amount and are hopeful that we will be able to re-offer these rates later on in 2014. We apologize for the inconvenience.
New Appointment Fees $73.45 each ($65.00 + HST)
Follow-up Appointment Fee $73.45 each ($65.00 + HST)
Fees must be paid in full at the time of booking.
If you are from Quebec, outside of Canada or do not have OHIP coverage, please call our office at 416-498-0002 to request your appointment first as additional fees will apply and you will be required to pay over the phone by credit card. Please do not submit your request online until you have spoken to our Clinic Administrators.
Please Note: The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic requires you to provide a referral from a registered and currently practicing Doctor or Midwife. If you have not already obtained a valid referral, please do so prior to your appointment date and time. Referrals should be faxed directly to our Clinic at 416-498-0012 or 416-916-0116 prior to your appointment.
Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy: If you are unable to attend your appointment, we require you to contact us by phone or email no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment date in order for us to provide a full refund of the fee paid. Fees will not be refunded for any cancellations made without 48 hours’ notice. Request to change appointment date or time must also be made no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment in order for the fees to be applied to the new appointment date and time. If less than 48 hours’ notice is given, patients will be required to pay again for the rescheduled appointment.
