Virtual Clinic

For Patients in Ontario

Dr. Alex Dong

Dr. Alex Dong offers a virtual clinic that provides short-term follow-up for his patients after being discharged from the emergency department when they don’t have timely access to a family physician. 

 

Completely covered by OHIP, the clinic can be accessed from any smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.  In addition, Dr. Dong is also able to continue care for patients he has previously treated through Rocket Doctor prior to December 1, 2022, within the past 2 years.

Why Virtual Care?

Virtual care allows patients to have a remote appointment with a doctor through their smartphone, tablet, computer or other internet-enabled device.

 

Patients have long suffered the burden of long waiting times, large distances to travel, lack of available specialists, potential exposure to infection in waiting rooms and the need to take significant time out of their busy lives for an appointment with the doctor.

 

Virtual care brings accessibility, convenience and safety to a meeting with the doctor, and provides access to communities and populations who struggle to access quality care.

 

Patients must be within the province of Ontario to see the doctor virtually.

Dr. Dong graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University in 2013, and subsequently completed his residency training in emergency medicine at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario with a special interest in pharmacology and toxicology. He is a certified emergency medicine specialist by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and holds a faculty position at the University of Western Ontario.

As an emergency physician, I, too often, see patients who don’t have family physicians and don’t have access to routine follow-up after their acute illness, and end up returning to hospital time and time again.  Having the ability to see these patients virtually can ensure proper treatment and recovery, preventing the need for repeated visits to hospital
