ONLINE Exams during COVID

During the Corona Virus disruption, we will try to perform a limited number of assessments online.  We can only evaluate certain medical problems online.  Phone the office managers Kim or Tracey to see if you qualify and they will provide an online appointment time.  You will require your OHIP card, and a computer connection with a minimum 720 p resolution, and an email address.   The online platform is google hangouts or Zoom.  Smartphone screens tend to be too small, but if you have no other alternative, place the phone in landscape orientation.

Just like online shopping or email, Virtual Care has some inherent privacy and security risks that your health information may be intercepted or unintentionally disclosed. We want to make sure you understand this before we proceed.  In order to improve privacy and confidentiality, you should also take steps to participate in this virtual care encounter in a private setting and should not use an employer’s or someone else’s computer/device as they may be able to access your information.  Do NOT send any personal information to the gmail address as your privacy cannot be ensured.

Instead of using online electronic storage, exam notes will be recorded on paper, and consult notes will be faxed to the referring physician.

Without the office microscopes, instruments and eye pressure checker,  you must understand that Dr. Ing canNOT perform a complete eye examination online.  If it is determined you require a physical exam you should be assessed in person when the COVID crisis has stabilized.

You should also understand that virtual care is NOT a substitute for attending the office / Emergency Department if urgent care is needed.  Are you OK to continue?

If you are OK to continue answer the health questionnaire at http://edseling.com/new-patient-registration-form/

To save time fax the completed questionnaire to 416) 465-2035 before the online interview.  To guard your privacy our office will record the exam on paper and fax a note to the referring physician instead.

An alternative method to check your vision is to use the link below to print an eye chart, and place it 10 feet away.  (If you have one foot square floor tiles at home, you can easily determine the proper distance)
