  • You have signs or symptoms of cancer. We do not offer other primary care services or diagnostic services. If you have a current medical complaint, please access care through available walk-in clinics.

How do I make an appointment?

Patients can self-refer to the Champlain Screening Outreach by calling 1-833-551-4125 or by booking an appointment online.
