Every family should have a GP. However, when you need medical care, but your family doctor is unavailable, Medvisit can help. With more than 100 doctors in our team, Medvisit is Canada's largest network of home visiting doctors. Our Doctors treat patients with acute, episodic conditions (e.g. gastro, UTI, migraine, respiratory infections) that are unable to leave their home on weeknights, weekends and public holidays.
If patients meed the new OHIP criteria for frail elderly or housebound (as shown below) the house call is 100% covered by OHIP with a valid health card.
Do we cover your area?
Our service area includes the entire GTA. This includes; Toronto, Scarborough, Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill, Brampton, Mississauga, and Etobicoke
We're always looking for new regions to service as part of our mission to reach home bound patients.
