For Health Care Providers

At GTA Endoscopy Services, we welcome referrals from family physicians and specialists. We currently recieve referrals for screening colonoscopy from over 250 family physicians from across southern Ontario. We provide a broad spectrum of endoscopic procedures including gastroscopy, colonoscopy, and hemorrhoid ligation procedures. At GTA Endoscopy, we have provided over 15,000 patients access to screening endoscopy procedures far under the published provincial wait time.

Staffed primarily by doctors affiliated with Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital, we provide more than screening and diagnosis. Our team of surgeons can provide your patients with the latest approaches, including minimally invasive surgery for treating colon cancer, if this is ever needed. All services are completely covered by OHIP with no additional charges or fees to patients.

Office hours: Office hours at our clinic are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday inclusive.

Referrals: As a specialized clinic, we are not able to accept requests for appointments directly from patients. We welcome direct referrals from all physicians. Referrals from physicians can be made directly to the clinic using our referral form. Patient referrals can be faxed to us at: (416) 321-5162. Within 2 business days of receiving the fax, we will contact your patient directly to:

  • Schedule an appointment
  • Provide preparation instructions
  • Provide helpful material that answers common questions about the procedure

Follow-up: We are committed to keeping you as an active participant in your patient’s care. Within 5-7 business days we will provide you a follow-up letter describing the findings of the procedure.
