Taking Care of You
At MyFamilyMD, our physicians are true primary care specialists. We are proud to care for people of all ages – From newborns to the elderly. We emphasize preventive care – Keeping our patients healthy through the use of evidence-based manoeuvres to prevent disease. From time-to-time you may receive notices for interventions that may be of benefit to your health and well-being. Watch for these in the future, through our patient portal.
Our doctors are quite collegial and often consult each other for more complex issues that would benefit from a quick second opinion. Our doctors are also skilled at minor procedures and a referral to a surgical specialist is often not required.
You have access to same-day urgent appointments. If your doctor is away, another physician in the office will often care for you.
We have three resident Menopause Practitioners whose skill we utilize for the management of peri- and post-menopausal symptoms. Some of our doctors insert IUDs in the office. Our female physicians are avialable for gynaecological examinations when a female doctor is preferred (referral required).
The doctors of MyFamilyMD are part of the Complete Care Family Health Organization (FHO). By belonging to this larger group of physicians, you have access to nursing advice and medical care even when our office is unavailable. You should never feel like you are without a Family Doctor, even if you are not seeing one of us.
Our electronic medical record (EMR) is state-of-the-art. We use Telus PS Suite EMR, the largest EMR provider in Canada and through this we have access to a powerful tool to help monitor your health. Telus also provides high level support and regular updates. We have also adopted a secure patient portal, using HealthMyself. This portal allows two way communication with our staff and the ability to book and cancel appointments online.
