Our Team

Our Team provides a wide range of community based primary health care services with an approach that integrates disease prevention and health promotion into the traditional process of diagnosing and managing patients with acute and chronic disease.

Primary Care Services include: 

  • Diagnosis, management and support for patients with both acute and chronic physical and mental health problems.
  • Health promotion and disease prevention are integrated into daily health care   services.
  • We are committed to integration with other community service providers to optimize the well being of our patients and community.
  • We link to specialty based services in Kingston and Perth.
  • We host Outreach Programs at the Sharbot Lake Family Health Team including: Asthma, COPD, C-Pap, South East Ontario Vision Loss Rehabilitation Services and Geriatric Psychiatry Outreach.
  • We are an Academic Family Health Team and often have Residents and medical students from Queen’s Faculty of Medicine, and other universities participating in the delivery of health care.
