We Know You!
Because we know our patients well and are familiar with their past and family medical histories, we often have much more insight into the likely causes of a symptom than a physician who meets you for the first time.
We Are Often Able To See You Quickly If You Have An Urgent Need!
Even if your own family doctor is not able to see you right away, one of our colleagues often can – with the benefit of access to your health record.
Your Health Information Is Stored And Available For You And Your Family Doctor In The Future.
Family doctors have the central role in ensuring that information from any of your interactions with the health care system is communicated to you and to other doctors who need to know.
We Organize Preventative Care
When we see you for something, we often talk about other things too. This includes keeping track of all the recommended preventative health screening, immunizations, cholesterol and diabetes testing.
