Frequently asked questions

Do I need a referral to see Dr. Beauchamp?

A referral from a doctor or physiotherapist is usually preferred, but we provide consultations at patients’ request if warranted by their condition. If you’re unsure, call our receptionist.

If I’ve already been diagnosed by my treating physician, do I still need a consultation with Dr. Beauchamp?

Dr. Beauchamp is an internationally recognized clinician. Dr. Beauchamp will not automatically perform a procedure indicated by a referring physician without first confirming what it’s for. Dr. Beauchamp’s diagnosis and the proposed treatment plan are sometimes different than those of the treating physician.

What is the minimum age for Dr. Beauchamp’s patients?

Dr. Beauchamp practises adult orthopaedics and accepts patients 16 years of age or older.

Does Dr. Beauchamp only practise private medicine?

Dr. Beauchamp has been practising exclusively in a private clinic and private hospital since 2005.

How long does a consultation last?

Each new consultation lasts at least 30 minutes and includes a questionnaire and a detailed physical exam, which are often followed by an ultrasound.

How long do patients need to wait before surgery?

Procedures are scheduled 10 to 14 days after the consultation, depending on the patient’s availability and Dr. Beauchamp’s schedule.

Are these medical expenses considered tax deductible?

The cost of Dr. Beauchamp’s services is eligible and may be claimed as medically necessary. As eligible amounts are related to the patient’s income, we recommend that you seek the advice of an accountant for a more precise estimate. The cost may also be covered by insurance. Ultrasound (with an ultrasound-guided injection) is a highly specialized procedure. Group insurance plans usually cover ultrasounds performed by private orthopaedists. Check your policy to make sure.
