The following services are currently available to Ontario residents:
- General Practitioners
General practitioners are medical doctors who are trained to provide primary healthcare to patients. They are able to help with most non-emergent issues that do not require an in-person assessment or follow-ups. Our doctors can provide medical advice, create a diagnosis, and write prescriptions, medical notes, and lab requisitions.
- Naturopathic Doctors
Naturopathic doctors can provide consultations on acupuncture/traditional Chinese medicine, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and many more.
- Travel Medicine Consultants
Travel medicine consultants are medical doctors who help patients understand what vaccines they'll need prior to a trip abroad.
Dermatologists can treat a wide variety of skin, nail and hair conditions virtually including acne, alopecia, psoriasis, rashes, eczema, nail infections, dermatitis, pigment disorders, shingles and many more.
Endocrinologists are able to assist with diabetes, thyroid gland problems, adrenal gland problems, pituitary gland problems, PCOS/Menstrual problems, low testosterone, bone/osteoporosis/calcium problems, high lipids/cholesterol issues, and many more.
After medical school, paediatricians train for at least four more years in the care of babies, children, and youth. Many paediatricians specialize in a specific area of child and youth health called "subspecialists". Some examples are: paediatric cardiologists (who focus on heart health), paediatric allergists, neonatologists (who care for sick newborns or premature babies), and developmental paediatricians.
- Oncology Navigators
Oncology navigators help patients obtain support in navigating possible cancer treatment options for their specific case and desired approach. Aside from offering an assessment/advice, oncology navigators can also provide a consultation letter - at their discretion - which the patient can take back to their family physician.
- Diabetes Nurse Educators
Diabetes nurse educators can teach patients about diabetes, exercise, diet, and nutrition, as well as offer guidance about medication options and help them implement new treatment and diet plans. A diabetes nurse educator can also help patients monitor blood sugar and adjust insulin if the patient has seen an endocrinologist, by suggesting adjustments to the dosage/timing of insulin administration.
Psychotherapists help navigate anxiety, depression, relationship problems, stress, and eating disorders.
- Lactation Consultants
Lactation consultants can address the following problems: latching difficulties, painful nursing, low or abundant milk production, baby not gaining weight, and pumping concerns. A lactation consultant can also offer guidance on breastfeeding equipment and safe storage of breast milk, help babies with special needs, guide mothers with twins or triplets, and provide emotional support through breastfeeding challenges.
- Chronic Pain Specialist
Chronic pain specialists can provide medication for chronic pain, including prescription cannabis and other pain medications that are not controlled substances.
Dietitians are licensed experts in human nutrition and the regulation of diet. They can help patients better understand and take control of their diet based on their particular situation. Dietitians on Maple can provide a customized nutrition plan for patients of all ages, including those with Type 2 diabetes or other health concerns (such as pregnancy, picky eating, and irritable bowel syndrome).
Psychiatrists are doctors who are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of mental health problems. They can provide diagnoses, doctor's notes, laboratory requisitions and mental health tests, as well as prescribe controlled medications to patients (over 18 years and under 65 years of age) with whom they have developed a relationship (i.e. patients with whom they are having ongoing communications and follow-ups).
