What to do if You are sick

The office number is 416-864-5409. If a patient calls between 8:30am to 4pm, he/she will always be able to speak to a CF nurse who will provide assessment and health advice by phone. If needed, she will consult a CF physician to address medical issues. If the call comes outside of our office hours or during holidays, there will be instructions given on the answering message for any patients who wish to speak to a respirologist on call. If a patient requires hospitalization, the nurse practitioner or CF clinic nurse will make arrangements for admission with the Respirology/CF in-patient unit. The patient will be notified to come to Toronto when a bed becomes available.
