Eastern Health is blaming an "an administrative issue" at the office in St. Mary's.
The board says the referrals were routine and non-urgent.
President and CEO Vickie Kaminski says the physician at the office has reviewed each patient's file and concluded that no one was harmed as a result of not receiving further consultation or assessment.
Eastern Health says the patients affected have been notified.
