Medical Exam in Toronto on April 24, 2012

I had my medical exam in Toronto this morning. Just wanted to share the experience.

Booking the appointment wasn't difficult. I don't think they ever answer the phone so all you need to do is leave a voicemail or send them an email, I did both and they responded pretty quickly (within a couple of hours).

I got there at 6:50am this morning (the first one), the building was locked. There was a lady smoking outside and she asked me whether I was there for US immigration medical exam, she then told me that she'd bring me up in a few minutes. She is the one that handles the paperwork in the clinic.

- She took me upstairs, did the paperwork and asked me to wait for the nurse in a room. I was given an envelop for the X-Ray - 7:00am

- The nurse measured my height and weight and asked me to strip and put on a gown; it was cold in the office and - 7:10am

- The doctor checked my immunization record and asked some questions regarding my medical history; some very basic checks (breathing, my throat, etc.) A very nice doctor. Please note that you only need a flu shot during flu season (normally Nov - Feb), I didn't need one. Sent to the waiting room -- 7:30am

- Called by the nurse for the blood test -- 7:50am

- Checked out with the receptionist; given directions to

Rosedale Radiology And Ultrasound

600 Sherbourne Toronto, ON M4X 1W4

(416) 960-0177

The X-ray place is only around the corner of the block, very very short walk. Unfortunately, I was told that the machine was broken so I couldn't have it done this morning. I am going back later today. Not sure how often that happens, let's just hope that it won't happen again.

Results will be available to pick up on Thursday after 12pm. Or $50 for courier service.

Overall, it was a very straightforward process as long as you have all the paperwork ready. Please make sure that you have your vaccine up to date. The lady behind me had to go in again because she was missing a shot and she refused to get it there.

There are a few parking garages, no directions needed, you'll find them easily. I paid $15 since it was over 1/2 hour ($3.75 for 1/2 hour).

Thanks for this information. I think we are going to try to do this since we don't want to have to spend a whole week in Montreal.
