Artus Arthritis

Independent Medical Evaluations

Independent medical evaluations occur when a doctor has been requested to exam a patient  without any prior involvement in their care.  These assessments may be conducted to determine potential cause, extent and medical treatment of a work-related or other injury where liability is at issue. Doctors at ARTUS are available to perform some of these services upon request.

Out of Province/ Country Patients/

If you do not have coverage with the Medical Services Plan of British Columbia or are from outside Canada, you may book a private visit directly with one of the ARTUS doctors.  This service is available for individuals who are traveling and suffer from rheumatic diseases or those individuals from other jurisdictions interested in a second opinion.

Please be advised this is not a pay to “skip the line” service. You will require a referral from a physician faxed to our office. Once received your referral will be triaged by the rheumatologist and you will be contacted for an appointment.
