Rx Renewals

Prescription renewals can only be done in person during a visit with the doctor. Renewals are unable to be done by phone, email or fax. Requests faxed to us will be returned to the pharmacy letting them know the patient must visit the doctor for renewals.

Waiting For an Outgoing Referral

Referrals are made within 3 business days of your visit. You will receive an email from us when your referral is made outlining who the referring was made to, their contact information, estimated wait time and how you will be contacted.

If you have any questions regarding urgency of the referral, you must follow up with the doctor who made the referral in our office.

If you have not been contacted with an appointment time and it has been longer than the estimated wait time or if the wait time is not given, please contact the specialist directly via the contact number provided in the initial email.

Looking for my Test Results

Results for all test ordered by the physician should be followed by the patient at our office in a timely manner. We will attempt to contact you via email or phone if the results are abnormal or require immediate follow-up.

Kensington Medical Clinic does not adopt the resulting policy of “no news is good news”. The patient is responsible for following up on all test results in person.

Due to privacy restrictions, we are unable to email the patient a copy of the results. If patients wish to have a copy of their results, they should sign up for E-Health while visiting Lifelabs. For all other results, copies may be supplied at the next visit with the doctor if desired.

Chart Transfer Request

The transfer of medical records is not a benefit under the Medical Services Plan of BC. The patient is responsible for fees related to chart transfer. The fee is $40.

Please fill out the consent for release of information and provide payment. Once this information is received, the standard turnaround time for transfer of information is 10 business days.
