Northern Ontario has a Naturopathic Doctor making house calls From Thunder Bay to Terrace Bay
Do you need medical care, but can’t get out of the house? Worried about spreading infection? There was a time when the doctor came to you, instead of the other way around – and C.M. Gibson believes it’s time to bring that tradition back. Welcome to Naturopathic House Calls.
Note: As Ontario continues to deal the Covid-19 crisis, Dr. Gibson is providing health care both in-person and online. Precautions are still being taken to reduce the risk of infection, including pre-screening questions and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) by Dr. Gibson while performing any physical exams or treatments that require close contact. If you are able to wear a mask or PPE, please free to use them. Alternatively, you can book a virtual appointment if you don’t require in-person care.
House Call Request
Thunder Bay, Ontario: Tuesdays & Wednesdays
Thunder Bay – Nipigon (Hurkett, Dorion, Red Rock): Wednesday evenings
Nipigon / Red Rock, Ontario: Thursdays
Nipigon – Terrace Bay (Pays Plat, Rossport, Schreiber): Fridays & Saturdays
Dr. Gibson is available to make house calls during limited hours, depending on her schedule. After you submit a request, she will contact you by email to arrange a window of time in which she can call. Since she may be seeing several patients and travel times can vary, she won’t be able to give you an exact arrival time, but can usually provide a 2-3 hour window in which you can expect her.
Prefer to be contacted by phone?
If you would rather be contacted by phone, please include your phone number in your message.
If you require immediate care, please visit a walk-in clinic or hospital. A delay in needed healthcare can be very dangerous, and modern conventional medicine does an excellent job handling true emergencies. Your Naturopathic doctor can aid in the recovery process, but she is not the 1st person you need to see in these circumstances.
Since Dr. Gibson is usually off-line and away from her phone on Sundays & Mondays, it may be best to visit your family doctor or local emergency department if you require care before Tuesday.
The cost for a house call is the same as a visit in the clinic, but may include the time spent driving out of her way. The more flexible you can be about days/times, the greater chance she will be able to schedule a visit when she is planning to be in or driving through your area, which will keep your costs down.
If you are a current patient with an account, you can add your credit card information to pay quickly and easily. After your appointment, you will receive a receipt directly in your inbox. If you do not have a patient account, we can send you an email to help you get one started. You can also pay by e-transfer, or in person by cash or cheque.
