Searching for a new family doctor in Winnipeg
on 7/16/12 1:39 pm - Canada
I am almost certain that I want the DS so I find it even more important to find a doctor that is willing do go through my labs diligently and provide great follow up care.
I actually live in Pinawa but i am willing to drive to Winnipeg or surrounding areas.
Thank-you in advance everyone!
Do you know about the number you can call to find family doctors who are accepting new patients?
“The Family Doctor Connection”, a service provided by Manitoba Health, provides an up-to-date comprehensive list of Family Physicians accepting new patients and is accessible by calling 204 – 786-7111. An operator will provide you with the names and telephone numbers of Family Physicians currently accepting new patients."
You can probably ask them if they're aware of any physicians who are supportive of weight loss surgery, although it's hard to say if they will have that information. At least it's somewhere to start.
