SMP is not an appointment. SMP is the same as a walk-in arrival however it allows you to check-in remotely and wait off site. SMP is not available during the initial 90 minutes of a site's daily opening, one hour prior to the designated closing time, or in instances where the wait time surpasses 2 hours. You should time your arrival approximately 10 minutes before your estimated service time. You can book SMP online at qme.dynalife.ca or by calling our appointment line at 1-877-702-4486.

Patients can walk into most locations without an appointment and be served roughly in the order of arrival. Wait times will vary based on the number of patients currently checked in at that location. Upon arrival, please check-in at the front desk.

An appointment is a booked time slot at your chosen collection location. You should time your arrival approximately 10 minutes before your appointment starts. An appointment can be booked online at qme.dynalife.ca or by calling our appointment line at 1-877-702-4486

Simply follow the link in your confirmation Email or SMS to cancel or reschedule. You can also do this from your User Account. Guest bookings must use the link in the appointment confirmation SMS or email.

Unwanted appointments can be easily cancelled by clicking the link sent in your confirmation message or by logging into your account. Accounts with large numbers of no-show appointments may be required to book via phone only.

General Questions


Estimated wait times are continually recalculated based on the volume of patients checked in at a given location. The reported service time per patient is multiplied by the total number of patients waiting to be served at that time.

Sudden increases in the volume of walk-in patients, special needs patients, priority or time sensitive testing can all dramatically change your actual wait time. Every effort is made to ensure the estimates are continually updated and as accurate as possible.

In most cases you do not require an appointment. You can simply walk-in or use Save My Place when available. Note, some select locations are by appointment only. Some specialized or time sensitve tests may also require an appointment. If you are unsure or have special needs please consult your physician or book through our appointment line at 1-877-702-4486
