The Team

Our professional team of health care providers is here to work together at ensuring you receive the best comprehensive care by the most appropriate care provider.

The Nurse Practitioners and Family Physicians are your primary care providers. Their goal is to assist you in developing healthy living strategies that will prevent illness and maintain health for those living with a chronic illness. It is their goal to assist you in achieving the best possible quality of life. They will refer to other physicians or team members as needed.

The Nursing staff is there to complete an initial assessment that reflects your needs upon your arrival to the clinic. This assessment is in preparation of your appointment with the nurse practitioner or physician so be sure to let them know about concerns you have that need to be addressed during your visit.

At our clinic our nurse also holds an outpatient lab service for patients in the east end of the city on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 to 10:30am. Patients can drop by with their lab requisition to have blood work done close to home.

Our Secretarial staff is the cheery voices that you hear when you call and the welcoming faces that greet you at the front desk when you come in for a visit. They will do whatever they can to assist you in meeting your health care needs. Make sure you let them know if anything has changed in your health or health card, so they can update your records for the nurse practitioner and physician.

Registered Dieticians are the experts in the area of diet and nutrition and by working in conjunction with other team members they can play an important role in preventing and treating illness. Patients who would like to see the dietician only need to ask and an appointment will be scheduled. The dieticians can answer any dietary questions you may have dependent on your needs and assist you in changing your goals. Just call the secretary and ask her to book an appointment for you.

Our Pharmacist is available Tuesdays and Thursdays to counsel patients on their medications, side effects, or possible over the counter remedies that you may be considering. He will support you through smoking cessation with counseling and assistive therapies and arrange for refills on your medications. The pharmacist can review any medications that require a refill, but remember, he needs 30 days notice, so don’t wait until your pills run out.

Social Worker sees patients for a variety of reasons related to individual social needs. Patients can self refer to any of our social workers who are there to assist you in finding strategies to cope with personal and or family matters.

Our Executive Director would like to hear from you, to share your satisfaction or to address concerns. The East End Family Health Team wants to serve you better and the only way for us to do that is to hear from you.
