Patients and Families

Welcome, Patients and Families!

About your Telemedicine Visit
A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment, only the specialist you will be seeing and speaking with is on a monitor. Free to residents of Ontario, OTN connects you with the right health care professional, in the right place, at the right time.

I think this is a valuable, indispensable service. It allows me to see my practitioner more frequently and I feel I am benefitting from treatment/therapy. Great idea!!
