Our goal is to create a space, to effectively foster a trusted fellowship between patients, physicians, staff, and allied health professionals. Our allied health team includes family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and specialized obstetrical/gynecology consultants Together, we work as a unified team, aiming to improve patient care.


Our family physicians are trained across a multitude of specialties including general surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, psychiatry, and emergency medicine. Additional areas of training are often completed, often in areas of interest of the family physician. For this reason, a family physician is capable of providing patients with much of the routine care they require. Did you know that Family Medicine is a recognized medical specialty in Canada as well as many parts of the world?


Your family physician is your advocate and coordinator of care. Family physicians are often copied on important communications and documents related to care outside of the office. Altogether, the family physician's office serves as the central hub for your care. This has become much easier through the use of Electronic Medical/Health Records (EMRs/EHRs) where patient information is securely and confidentially stored.

Our family physicians work closely with our in-house OB/GYN medical specialists to provide timely advice and care to patients.
