Sports medicine includes physicians whose field of interest includes the examination and management of sports injuries, both in the clinic and in the field.
They are known for their knowledge of all aspects of physical activity.
This knowledge is not limited to the sports world but applies equally to the world of work, sector with its share of injuries, including repetitive motion injuries.
In order to act effectively, the sports doctor works in collaboration with other health professionals. It must also make the link between the rapid expansion of knowledge in the field of medicine and their clinical applications for the patient. Being a physician above all, he will also eliminate the presence of underlying pathology that may affect the health of the patient.
Our physicians are not part of the Régie d’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you use our professional services, you will have to pay directly for the services we will provide you. You will not be able to claim or obtain from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec the reimbursement of the cost of the services you have paid. The health insurance card is not accepted but we will provide you with a receipt for your eligible medical expenses for the purposes of the tax credit. We accept credit cards, debit cards and cash as payment methods.
The regulations concerning the coverage by the health insurance card of incidental costs or ultrasounds performed by clinical radiologists applies to physicians participating in the RAMQ (in the public plan). In order to avoid any confusion, we would like to remind you that the doctors of the Sports Medicine Clinic of L’Avenir are non-participants in the RAMQ (private practice).
We would also like to point out that most of our physicians are sports and exercise physicians with the certification of the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise and the certificate of additional competency in Sports Medicine and Exercise Medicine. of the CFPC. They are not a radiologist and use ultrasound in a targeted and complementary way to their history and physical examination to establish their diagnosis and guide their infiltration. If you want to get an ultrasound report from a radiologist, we advise you to go to a radiology clinic or hospital center.
