Can anyone make an appointment?
    The appointments at the Clinique Dot.com are reserved for Dre Dupuis-Riendeau’s registered patients, or new patients referred to Dre Dupuis-Riendeau via the Access Gateway for Orphan’s Clientele (AGOC) of Gaspé.

What if I don’t have a family doctor and I want to get one

A nurse will call you and determine your priority to get a family doctor. If your health condition changes while you are waiting on the list, dont forget to call back the AGOC to let them know, it might change your priority level.

Can I get a pregnancy follow-up?
  • If you already have a family physician, Dre Dupuis-Riendeau will become your temporary family doctor for the time being of your pregnancy. Your own family doctor will take over at the end of your pregnancy, after the post part follow-up. To make an appointment, click : Appointment and choose "Pregnancy first appointment". The first appointment should be around 8 weeks after the first day of your last menses.

I am pregnant… What’s next…?

  • If you are symptomatic (feel nauseous, bleeding, etc…), are taking medications or if you have active health concerns or questions, take an "emergency" appointment as soon as you feel the need to.
