1. yes 2. no In a major city like Toronto there are hundreds of walk-in clinics open 7 days a week. You just show up and ask the doc anything. Bring the kids, bring the whole family, it's all free! They will run blood tests, write perscriptions, run other tests, and do anything that can be done by one doctor and a nurse in a clinic. That covers a lot of stuff required by most people. Or make an appt. with your family dr. Again, you simply walk into these clinics no appt. required. Concerned about the street drugs you just consumed? Think you got VD from that hooker? Just drop by. AND: Ontario has telehealth, just call and you speak with a registered nurse. For those who have children just think how that could be useful - kids had a fever, kid is turning purple, whatever; just call and they'l hook you up or refer you.
