New Family Doctors Coming to London
AM980 News – 1/10/2012
It’s a double dose of good news for anyone looking for a family doctor in London.
The Medpoint Health Care Centre has announced a new clinic will be opening in Byron to focus on children and walk in services.
Two family doctors and one pediatric physician will start seeing new patients Wednesday. The new clinic is located next to the Rexall Pharmacy in Byron and will feature a much needed after hours clinic for children.
The new physicians will join the existing team of family doctors and specialists bringing the total number of active doctors at Medpoint to 17. Medpoint’s downtown location is already home to Cardiologists, Dermatologist, Internal Medicine, Gyneacology and Orthopedics as well as a number of other specialists.
President of Medpoint, Alex Hanham says this will help alleviate pressure on other facilities around the city.
“It’s a huge opportunity for people in the west end. I have children myself and when they get sick there are really limited options for where you can take them. There are not a lot of walk-in clinics out there and even when you go to a walk-in clinic they’re usually not specializing in dealing with children. So, we have the concept of let’s create a clinic that focuses on pediatric after hours service.”
Dr. Colin Forbes, Dr. Hifsa Khanand and Dr. Mandeep Wadhwa, will start seeing patients January 11th at 1240 Commisioners Rd. in the Bryon Village plaza.
The goal is to have 2 family doctors and 1 Pediatric specialist at the clinic at all times 7 days a week, however the clinic will be starting off a little slower.
Medpoint is also in negotiations to bring 3 other family doctors to the London area as well as 3 pediatric doctors to work in the new clinic.
All 6 of the doctors are from outside of London with one from New York State and another from the United Kingdom.
“From the very beginning we planned on bringing highly skilled and experienced physicians to practice at our facility as part of a multidisciplinary team”, says Alex Hanham, President of Medpoint Health Care. “This approach means that overall more Londoners will have access to quality integrated health care in numerous locations throughout the city of London”
Londoners seeking health care at the new Byron clinic can book an appointment directly by going to www.medpoint.ca or by calling 519-432-1919.
