Background Checks

Contact between us: 

You will receive an email inviting you to submit your background check to us if you are over 18 and you do not have a background check on file through My Back Check. These emails will be sent in advance of your clinic date and need to be completed by the clinic. 

If you have not received this link please email our VP Member Services to confirm your registration on RAMP, and contact information.

If you have questions regarding the background or want to discuss anything relating to one that has been completed please email our Privacy Officer.
