We know that your appointment with our orthopaedic surgeon is important to you, and it can be most beneficial if you are prepared for it. This includes having the information your doctor will need from you as well as being able to gather information that you need from your doctor.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to further improve your experience with us at Fraser Orthopaedic Institute. We look forward to meeting you.
Personalized care doesn’t always follow definitive times schedules, and we appreciate your understanding and patience if we keep you waiting longer then you expected. In some cases, patients require special attention, or your provider may be asked to assess a serious injury. Be assured that your doctor will make every effort to see you as soon as possible.
New patients may be asked to complete a New Patient Registration Questionnaire. You can do this in advance of your appointment at home and bring in the completed questionnaire or you may be sent an online questionnaire to be completed electronically.
An x-ray may be required for your appointment. The MOA (Medical Office Assistant) will let you know if you need an X-ray at the time of booking your appointment and will forward a requisition:
An X-ray facility operated by West Coast Medical Imaging is on site to facilitate the process.
If you are coming in for X-rays on the same day as your appointment, please arrive 1 hour in advance of your scheduled appointment with the doctor for the X-ray.
If you have had any diagnostics (X-rays, MRI, CT, etc) done outside of the Fraser Health Authority hospitals then you will need to bring in a CD with the actual images and the report.
