Hi everyone, I am preparing to do an upfront medical exam and am wondering If any of you have done one in Toronto or anywhere in the greater Toronto area?
I'm just looking for medical clinic recommendations and if you wouldn't mind sharing the cost of the exam as well as your experience at the clinic.
Thanks!

Hi Butters,

I have done it from Dr.Dharamavathy. Things were smooth during my session. Completed my entire process within 2-3 hrs. Total expenses $135+$45. She lives in Scarborough. Surely, I would recommend her.

Hey! Thanks so much for the recommendation and replying to my post!
I actually booked with her today for an appointment!
Quick question - was everything done in the clinic itself? (Physical, X-ray and blood work)?
and how long did it take for them to submit the results to CIC?

Thanks so much, appreciate your help very much!!

Hey butters1690, did you manage to get your medical done at that place? If yes, how much did it cost you and was everything covered in the clinic?

Thanks!

Panel Physicians in Etobicoke. I paid $200 for a weekend appointment which was cheaper than another place i was looking at (I forgot which) -- on that note: weekend appointments! Yay! They are super quick. I arrived 30 minutes early and instead of having me wait they just started on me right away. I left to place to go to the x-ray lab (10 mins bus ride away from their place) 30 mins early. I was very happy with them.

Thanks butters..

$290? :eek: Is that normal? ???

I called few others and have quotations varying anywhere inbetween 210 and 285. Any idea why its not a standard price...

Thanx for the post.

How long does it take to get your results? and for how long they will be valid?

Are there any specific doctors that CIC deal with or it is okay to pick any? How can I book the appointment?

Thank you

Anyone tried Panel Physician North York ?
@a16107
Is $240 included xray normal/good price now?
I did. I did the exams 11 days ago and they haven't uploaded it in the system yet!!! Their website says up to 10 days but I called today and they said it is up to 10 business days. I am a little worried :(

Did you use them? How long did they take to upload your exams?
