FAQs

Here are the most frequently asked questions about our Athletic Therapy services.

We always encourage involving your family doctor, but you do not need a referral to consult with the professionals at GRSM. Many of our patients call the clinic and make their own appointments while others are referred by their family physicians. A referral may be required by your extended health care provider to receive benefits. 

Appointments may be made in person or by calling (519) 622-4529 (Cambridge) or (519) 571-7111 (Kitchener-South) or (519) 804-9164 (Kitchener-Downtown). You can also fill out our online form and one of our staff will call you. Remember: Please give us at least 24-hours notice if you need to cancel, so we can give that time to another patient.
