Please join the physicians and staff of Ridgeview Medical in welcoming Dr. Kendra Barrick to our team. Dr. Barrick commenced with us in November 2017 as a locum physician covering a maternity leave. Effective June 4, 2018, Dr. Barrick has joined us permanently as an Associate physician. Dr. Barrick is currently accepting new patients.
Welcome to the team (officially!) Dr. Barrick! :-)
It's that time of year again! Influenza immunizations are available free of charge for all Albertans 6mths of age or older at Ridgeview Medical Centre. Patients with valid Provincial Healthcare coverage from another Canadian province can also access the immunization at no charge. An appointment fee may apply for Uninsured or Out of Country patients.
Please contact the clinic to make an appointment with your family doctor, or one of our Registered Nurses. Alternatively, you can attend one of the Public Health Immunization Clinics in your local area.
Remember - hand washing is more important than ever, so make sure that you and your family are 'germ smart' this season!
To become a patient or be seen as a walk in, you must provide the front desk with your Alberta Health Card, or other valid provincial health care card (excluding Quebec). It is your responsibility to have valid health coverage and to carry proof of this coverage with you; or you will be charged the corresponding Alberta Health Services fee for your visit (generally between $37 and $60 for a basic visit). As some health facilities cannot provide services without physically seeing your valid provincial health care card, we recommend keeping the card in your wallet at all times.
As there is no reciprocal health care arrangement with Quebec, Quebec health care card holders will be charged the scheduled fee and will be issued a receipt.
Out of country patients can be seen on a walk in basis at a fee of $125/visit (additional fees may be charged for complex issues or procedures). A receipt will be provided.
For more information on how to obtain an Alberta Heath card please visit the AB Health website.
