All patients who have not previously been seen at Ridgeview Medical Centre must fill out a new patient form upon arrival. It is important for new patients to bring their health care card with them, along with proof of identity. If no health care number is provided, a basic fee will be levied with payment to be made at the time of the appointment.
Out of country patients will be asked to sign a jurisdiction agreement. Briefly, this agreement states that any disputes arising from the doctor-patient relationship will be governed by the laws of Alberta, and Canada where applicable. Further, should the patient wish to commence any legal proceedings, they will be commenced only in Alberta, with the Courts of the Province of Alberta having exclusive and preferential jurisdiction.
