Amid the many challenges facing Ontario’s health-care system, some patients in the province are worried visiting a walk-in clinic or using virtual care services could impact ties to their family doctor.
A user took to Reddit to detail their concern after they had used the online medical service Maple to get a prescription, since their main doctor was on vacation.
“It didn't occur to me at the time that this may qualify as ‘walk-in’ visit,” Final-Buffalo-4081 wrote. “I’m now wondering if this could get me de-rostered from my family doctor.”
