The local owners of IDA Drug Marts are pleased to announce a new service being offered to patients of the pharmacies.
An in-person Nurse Practitioner Led Clinic is opening Tuesday June 27th and is located at the Urban Square IDA location (197 Trunk Road, next to Pino’s). The nurse practitioner will be available to see patients in person by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm to 8pm. IDA patients can make an appointment by calling Urban Square pharmacy, 705-759-4818. There is no charge for appointments.
“The IDA ownership group is pleased to provide this new and much needed service to our loyal and valued customers”, said owner/partner Joseph Greco. “Nurse practitioners are unable to bill the Ontario Government, per the Canadian Health Act, therefore this service is paid for by the owners of IDA Drug Marts of Sault Ste. Marie as a value-added service and is reserved for IDA patients only.”
The nurse practitioner is able to prescribe or renew medications and can also treat acute infections, order blood work, diagnostic imaging or refer patients to specialists. It is the clinic’s policy that no narcotics or controlled substances will be prescribed.
IDA has 6 locations in the Sault and area.
