Consulting a doctor without an appointment

Discover various ways to find a doctor without an appointment in your area.

You can call Info-Santé 811 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any questions or concerns related to your health or that of a loved one.  Nurses can advise you and direct you to the appropriate type of service you need. 

Calling Info-Santé 8-1-1 often helps avoid unnecessary visits to a medical clinic or emergency room.

If you need to see your family doctor:

Contact the clinic where you usually see your doctor to find out if medical consultations are offered that day or the next day. If your doctor is not available, the clinic may offer you to consult another doctor, a nurse or a health care professionnal within the clinic. Your family doctor will then have access to evaluations and analyzes requested in his absence.

If you do not have a family doctor or if your clinic is closed:

The super-clinics (GMF-Réseau) are family medical groups with increased front-line services for semi-urgent needs and basic, urgent needs. The super-clinics offer walk-in medical consultations 12 hours a day, seven days a week. They also offer easy access to a test centre and radiology services. The following Network clinics offer walk-in medical services seven days a week.

* If you don’t have a valid Medicare card ( or if you are covered by the IFHP), you must first go to the Admissions Office of the Jewish General Hospital (room B-114) before going to the Herzl Walk-in Center to open a file and have your medical coverage validated.

Network clinics 

All of the above noted clinics accept the Québec Health Insurance Card (Medicare) and the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP).


PLEASE NOTE: the number of walk-in consultations offered per day is limited. It is recommended that you call before going to the clinic to confirm if consultations are still available and validate if you can book one (in person, by phone or online).
