Common reasons for post-travel assessments:
Post-travel assessments are a benefit of the provincial Medical Services Plan (MSP).
*Fever requires immediate assessment at the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Fever is considered a medical emergency in the returning traveller who has visited a known malaria risk area in the past 12 months. DO NOT WAIT for an appointment. DO NOT go to the walk-in clinic. DO NOT see your family doctor. Go straight to the ER. If your fever persists despite negative malaria testing at the ER, visit your primary care provider for assessment and possible referral.
Unlike pre-travel medicine and vaccination, post-travel assessments require a referral from your family doctor, a walk-in clinic doctor, nurse practitioner or medical specialist.
If you feel that we can help sort out your post-travel health issue, please follow these steps:
1. See your primary health provider
2. Ask for a referral
3. Referral letters should be faxed to Dr. Darin P. Cherniwchan Inc MSP#23031 at 604-425-0857
Upon receipt of the referral, you will be notified and an appointment will be arranged.
Patients are usually assessed within 48 hours of receipt of referral.
