Our approach to patient care
We believe the best way we can help our patients is to prevent disease, reduce harm and involve patients in their care.
To prevent disease we continue to promote healthy weight through vegetable rich diet and elimination of processed foods, advise to abstain from smoking and recommend to stay physically fit. This is our favourite prescription.
To prevent harm we do our best to limit unnecessary testing, referrals and medications. Each patient's visit includes medication review that prioritizes deprescribing (stopping medicines), specifically most harmful medications such as narcotics, benzodiazepines and sleeping pills. If medications are needed we believe in lower cost accessible generics sent to your pharmacy of choice.
To achieve best health outcomes we encourage our patients into active involvement in their care. It is the patient's responsibility to follow preventive measures and recommendations. We can help you better if you stay in charge of your health.
How our office works
We are aware of how important it is to care about your health and the health of your family. For this reason we utilize latest standards of care and propagate culture of quality improvement with help of modern technology. We use PS Suite electronic medical records with ocean, electronic faxing and prescribe-it. Our patients benefit from easy-access video visits, secure electronic messaging, automatic appointment reminders, secure two-way email communication allowing attachments (i.e. lab forms), online self-booking of visits, use of electronic questionnaires to help standardize care and econsults to bypass growing specialist wait times.
Lastly, since we have requested our patients to avoid random walk-in clinics, we attach great importance to being available. How available are we? We are open five days a week, with additional Saturday coverage provided by our after hours service. For urgent concerns we offer same day appointments if needed. Prescription refills and patient questions are usually taken care of same day or within one working day. Overall we are proud to deliver well organized, timely and thorough medical care to all our patients. For more details about how to reach us please check the contact&messaging tab.
