Telephones:
We are aware of your frustration and difficulties in reaching us by telephone. We have made significant changes to improve our service and accessibility. 
  • We have increased the number of lines available. 
  • We are hiring additional staff to support incoming calls. 
  • All physicians will have online appointment booking availability. However, it will continue to only be phone appointments. 
  • We will also be introducing a queue call-back feature (also known as automated call-back) that allows callers to save their place in the queue and receive a call back when a staff member becomes available.
Please be kind to our staff. Our team is working diligently to continue to provide excellent care to our patients.

Wellness Workshops

New Vision offers a variety of VIRTUAL (online) AND in-person workshops!  Our Fall workshops are now taking registrations. Click here to register.

For a virtual workshop, you will need access to a computer, tablet or smart phone and the internet, but you do not need a camera. You will also need an email address for registration and to access the workshop.

A note on the return of in-person workshops:
We know that virtual workshops are not everyone's cup of tea, but patient safety is of utmost priority. New Vision is looking forward to being able to offer more in-person workshops at our Greenbrook site this Fall, so please check our website in the near future for in-person dates.
