Appointments and Patient Intake/Update Forms
Since Ms. Cindy Chow is an Ontario licensed chiropodist (foot specialist), it is required that any one who wishes to be her patient that an intake form and a patient contract / consent form must be completed. Please note that clinic intake forms should be read and filled out before your initial visit begins. We would be happy to email you the forms or you may pick the forms up at our office before then. Also, you may fill out the paperwork on the day of your visit so long that it is completed before your scheduled appointment time; so we suggest you arrive 10-15 minutes early for this.
Please call to book your appointment. Each of our clients are seen by booked appointments. Our receptionist will call to remind you of your appointment time in 1 or 2 clinic working days before. You may email us through our website's contact form a request for your appointment and we will reply within our next work day. Please provide your telephone number and name when using the contact form. Kindly give us 24 hours notice if you want to cancel or will be late (late by missing half or more of your appointment) to avoid a missed appointment fee on your next visit.
Billing, Payments and Insurance
Payment is due on the day services are rendered. Payment for products such as orthotics are due on the day they are dispensed. We require a deposit payment for orthotics, shoe and compression stocking orders (half of the total). We accept cash, E-transfer, debit (Interac), Visa, MasterCard and Amex credit cards. We will provide an official receipt for the services and purchased items. Our official receipts are numbered, dated, and include your name and our clinic's name, address and license practitioner number.
Chiropodist fees are covered by most private Extended Health Insurance Plans offered by employers, unions, etc. We strongly advise you to contact your insurance provider (or 3rd party payer) to understand your coverage eligibility. You can often find our services listed under your explanation of benefits booklet under the heading "Paramedical Services" for "Chiropodist / Podiatrist services". “Custom-made Orthotics”, “Orthopedic Footwear” and “Compression Stockings” are listed under Medical Equipment or Orthopedic Supplies.

Please know your requirements for any claims with your insurance company (or 3rd party payer). It is highly advised that if you have any questions about your coverage that you contact them directly. You may need to get a medical doctor (M.D.) referral note before you proceed with any service or product with us. As well, some plans may require an estimate letter to be pre-approved for certain products such as orthopedic shoes. If you need an estimate letter, we need to give you an assessment and this usually involves a visit fee. Please call us to inquire, (905) 943-7575 .
