You are encouraged to pick a doctor who is identified as your primary care Family Physician because

  • Your family doctor provides “whole patient” care and takes responsibility for your care in disease prevention and management of illnesses.
  • If you have a chronic disease, it is better to see your family doctor who “knows you” whenever possible.

If your family doctor is not available when you need to be seen, then one of the other physicians will look after your medical needs until your family doctor is available again.
