Frequently asked Questions

How do I get an appointment?

  • We only accept referrals through another physician. Please have your family doctor send us a referral requisition.

When will my surgery be booked?

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

How long do I have to wait for results?

  • Waiting periods for results will depend on what test or procedure you had done. Urgent pre-operative tests will typically take 1-2 weeks to get results back in time to be reviewed before surgeries, while non-urgent testing can take around 4-6 weeks to hear back for results. 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.

Who has access to my tests results?

  • Our office keeps a record of all tests and surgeries that we have booked for you. Our office also forwards a copy to your family doctor. If there is a specific doctor or specialist that you and your family doctor would also like to be sent copies of results to, please let our office know.
