We are taking patients at all of our 17 clinics locations around Alberta. Please visit our locations page to view the hours of the clinic closest to you.
During Wednesdays, our Sunridge clinic takes additional precautions to protect the vulnerable patients in our Maternal Fetal Medicine Program. These patients are at a higher risk of developing serious symptoms of COVID-19, so we appreciate your understanding to keep these patients safe.
X-ray:*With the safety of our patients being top priority, we’ve enhanced the way we provide X-ray service. While CDC still accepts walk in X-ray at all of our clinics with X-ray service, you now also have the option to book appointments for these to reduce the time you might spend waiting in the clinic, which enhances COVID safety. Please note that STAT exams will always be prioritized to be done the same day, however, appointments are otherwise given first priority, so we encourage you to book an appointment if you can.
Pain Management (Injections):*We recommend that all Pain Management Injections should be done no less than one week before or after receiving a COVID vaccine shot. While there is no direct evidence that the low dose of corticosteroid associated with pain management injections interferes with the safety or effectiveness of COVID vaccination, we do suggest one week spacing primarily to avoid confusion between potential side effects from vaccination or pain management with COVID symptoms, and reduce the chance of being asked to rebook either type of appointment.
Screening Mammograms:*We recommend that all screening mammograms should be done 4-6 weeks after receiving a COVID vaccination shot. This recommendation is from the Canadian Society of Breast Imaging and the Canadian Association of Radiologists, due to the increased chance of enlarged axillary lymph nodes (swollen glands in the armpit) following COVID-19 vaccinations. This is a normal immune response that can also happen with other vaccines, but has the potential to interfere with the interpretation of your screening mammogram and may require follow-up appointments to ensure the enlarged lymph nodes resolve and are not related to an underlying issue in the breast. If you are having a diagnostic mammogram or breast ultrasound due to a new symptom such as a lump, pain, or discharge, do not delay your appointment.
