Frequently Asked Questions

When will my surgery be booked?

Once all preliminary tests are completed and cleared with Dr. Toth, Dr. Privitera, or Dr. Kavanagh. At this point we will be able to best assess you and book your surgery appropriately.

How long will I have to wait for results?

The results of your tests depend upon your individual care plan. Please discuss with your surgeon.


Results from surgeries are processed within a couple weeks but results are not discussed with patients until the follow-up appointment which is typically booked 2-6 weeks (depending on the surgery) to allow for proper recovery time.

How do I get an appointment?
We only accept referrals through another physician. Please have your family doctor send us a referral requisition.
How do I prepare for my appointment?

Please bring a list of questions,  all your medications and your Ontario Health Card. You may need an X-ray before, if so we will organize this for you before your visit.

What kind of wheelchair access do you have?

All of our clinic locations including our Newmarket office are wheelchair accessible. For the chest x-ray that is required before your appointment with us, patients who are unable to stand from their wheelchair may request that we send an x-ray requisition to Southlake Hospital instead of X-Ray Associates

Worried about symptoms?

We recommend a close relationship with your family doctor as they are an integral part of your care team. If you experience symptoms that are severe, please go to your nearest emergency department.
