GENERAL RULES

Rhythm Health is a family practice and is not a walk-in clinic. We work on appointments. The building is also the home of Dynamic Health Studio that specializes in Integrative Medicine.

APPOINTMENTS

For Alberta Health appointments with Dr. Botha:

  • Phone 403-255-5868 and talk to a staff member

  • You may send an email to: staff@rhythmhealth.ca

  • Book online! Call and ask how to set this up if you missed your email invitation.

​For our non-insured services, please go to our website dynamichealthstudio.ca

CHECK IN

Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time and check-in with the front desk. You may also check-in using the tablet station that is set up across from the front desk. All you need is your healthcare number and date of birth.

PRESCRIPTION RENEWAL

The following methods can be used to renew non-narcotic prescriptions. During the COVID-19 circumstances the regular $30 fee is waived :

  • You can ask your pharmacist to fax a request to our office (403-252-7442)                                    

  • All prescriptions can be renewed by making an appointment and seeing the doctor in person.

Narcotics must be renewed in person. As of April 1, 2021 we will change the scope of our practice to more preventative medicine and will no longer offer long term narcotic pain control services to our patients. 

AFTER HOURS

After hours patients can phone 811 for advice from Health Link. In an Emergency, patients should go to the nearest Emergency Department. The PCN ( Primary Care Network ) also has an after hours clinic for non-emergencies.

CANCELLATION POLICY

We require 24 hours notice if you are unable to make your appointment. Failure to do so can result in a $100 no-show fee.
If you are going to be late for your appointment, please call the office to let us know. If you are more than 10 minutes late you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

RESULTS

All patients are responsible to get their own results from our office. Rhythm Health, Dr. Botha and his staff are NOT responsible to phone you for any results. It is the patients' responsibility to make an appointment and discuss the results with their doctor. No results will be given over the phone.

UNINSURED SERVICES

Dr. Botha has un-insured services and patients pay according to the type of un-insured service. We do have a private patient program that will cover these non-insured services with one annual fee. Some of these non-insured services include doctor's notes, prescriptions renewals, letters to massage/chiro/physiotherapy, and many other forms that you would otherwise have to pay for. Please discuss with Dr. Botha in person, or call Dynamic Health Studio at 587-966-5011, if you want to sign up for this yearly program.
