If you’ve ever needed to see a medical specialist, you’ll know that sometimes just finding the time to see your doctor and get a referral can be a hassle.

Not so with Wello. Our Nurse Practitioners will do a comprehensive health assessment over the phone or video at your convenience. Or if it’s required, we’ll visit you in your home.

Then, based on our clinical findings, we’ll send a referral letter straight to the specialist you need.  We’re connected to specialists across a wide range of fields, including orthopedics, dermatology, pediatricians, cardiology, podiatry, audiology, gynecology, and endocrinology. But we’re also happy to work with your family doctor or another specialist you want to see.

In some cases, you may also need to have some tests done before seeing your specialist. We can help organize those for you. At other times, our Wello Nurse Practitioners might suggest your first try treating your health issue with lifestyle changes – and will draw up a personalized strategy for you.

The time you’ll wait for a specialist appointment will depend on how urgent and severe your health issue and symptoms are. Your Wello Nurse Practitioner can give you an idea of how long you’ll have to wait during your consultation.

And while you are waiting to see your specialist, the team here at Wello can help you with more information, assessments, any diagnostic tests, as well as medication that will best compliment your care plan.

So if you think you need a specialist, don’t stress. Just call (403) 648-2150 or email hello@wello.ca to book a consultation with one of our wonderful Wello Nurse Practitioners. If you’re not yet a member, our plans start at just $35/month, so learn more about how to sign up today.
