RECENT Q & A
Please use the form below to request an appointment with Dr. Donovan. As soon as we receive this form, we will begin setting up a patient file here in the office for you.
Consultations conducted "in person" at the Whistler centre are generally the preferred method of initial consultation as they enable Dr. Donovan to provide the most thorough and detailed assessment. Only with an in person consultation can Dr Donovan actually see your scalp. We also provide one time, 'second opinion' consultations via telephone, FaceTime and Skype, and this information can be found under our "Second opinion Consultation" tab. Patients interested in becoming long term patients of Dr. Donovan must be seen first "in person" at the Whistler centre. Thereafter, remote consultations (via Skype and phone) may be possible as a means of follow up (depending on the diagnosis and treatment required). Current consultation fees can be found under the "Our Practice" tab. There is a fee of $ 875 for initial consultations with Dr. Donovan.
In order for your file to be presented to Dr. Donovan to determine whether or not he can offer you an appointment, our office MUST receive three items from you. We MUST receive the following three items:
1) CONSULT REQUEST FORM. The form below is our Consult Request Form. Most patients complete these as the first step in communication with our office and the proceed to gather previous blood tests and complete the "Patient Intake Questionnaire."
2) BLOOD TESTS. We must receive copies of all blood tests completed within the past 12 months.
3) PATIENT INTAKE QUESTIONNAIRE. This detailed questionnaire is available at. https://donovanmedical.com/patient-questionnaire
You may attach blood test results, biopsy results, photos and any other documents using this form below or simply send to our office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) after you submit the form.
Once we receive these THREE ITEMS and add them in your file, we will mark your file "complete." Completed files are then presented to Dr. Donovan to determine whether or not we can offer you an appointment. Without these three pieces of information stated above, we regret that we generally can not offer an appointment. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have concerns or questions of any kind.
SUMMARY OF 5 STEPS TO ARRANGE A CONSULTATION WITH DR. DONOVAN
STEP 1: Complete the “Consult Request Form” (i.e. using the form below). As soon as we receive this form, we’ll open a file for you here at the Whistler office. Then we wait for you to send us your blood tests and Patient Intake Questionnaire.
STEP 2: Submit recent blood tests (from the last 1 year) to our office. This can be done by attaching blood test to the Consult Request form, or by simply sending them to our office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (604.648.9003). Any other helpful information such as biopsy results, photos, consult notes from other specialists should be submitted as well.
STEP 3: Complete our Patient Intake Questionnaire (PIQ). This is available at https://donovanmedical.com/patient-questionnaire
STEP 4: Once we receive your three items (Consult Request Form, blood test results and Patient Intake Questionnaire), your file gets marked “complete”. Completed files are then presented to Dr Donovan to determine if we can offer you an appointment. Dr. Donovan will review files 3 times each week to confirm if our administrative team can proceed with offering an appointment to the patient.
STEP 5: Our administrative team will advise the patient if an appointment can be offered or not. If an appointment can be offered, an appointment date and time will be given.
STEP 6: The patient attends the appointment.
