Frequently Asked Questions

How can I meet with Dr. Di Lena?

An appointment to meet with Dr. Di Lena will be made once a written referral is received from another physician. Dr. Di Lena will review all new referrals and prioritize them in order of medical urgency. Your referring physician will inform you of your initial appointment, and our office will contact you prior to your first appointment.

How can I be prepared for my appointment?

You must bring a valid Ontario health card to every appointment. Please bring a complete list of all of your medications (both prescription and over-the-counter), and be prepared to answer some questions about your medical history. Dr. Di Lena will have access to all X-ray and imaging studies at RVH and in Barrie, but not at other facilities – for imaging done elsewhere, please bring a CD (disc) of the CT scan or MRI images.

Do I need a new referral if I have seen Dr. Di Lena in the past?

If you have been seen by Dr. Di Lena in the past 12 months, you can contact us directly for an appointment. Otherwise, we would be happy to see you again, but a new referral from your doctor will be needed.
