As part of its Physician Recruitment program, Halton Region hosted the annual Docs on Ice tournament at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.   Docs on Ice is a provincial  organization comprised exclusively of hockey playing Doctors who descend on different locality every year to raise charity funds.   Much of  fundraising is done on a personal basis.   They are often supported by media personnel and NHL hockey players.

With the help of local volunteers, the tournament raises funds through a combination of registration fees, sponsorship, donations and special events.

Funds raised through Docs on Ice Oakville 2011 will support the Alzheimer Society of Hamilton/Halton and will be used to expand the Alzheimer Society Oakville resource centre. This year over $150,000.00 was raised for Alzheimers due to efforts of Docs on Ice.

Important Preventative Care Screenig Information

Monday, April 18, 2011

As part of the Ministry of Health Preventive Care Initiative, if you have not received the following screenings within the past two years (or year in the case of a flu shot), please consider this as your first reminder to contact us.

• Mammography Screening – no office appointment needed
• Pap Test- appointment required
• Colorectal Screening- drop in to obtain kit.
• Childhood Immunization- performed with baby visits
• Influenza Shot (available end of October/early November)

Mammogram – High risk group (women between the ages of 50 and 70 inclusive)
In Canada, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women affecting 1 in 9 Canadians. As women get older, the chance of getting breast cancer rises. Mammograms can help to find small breast cancers before there are signs and symptoms. If breast cancer is found at an early stage there is a high rate of successful treatment. As well, for many women, finding cancer early may allow for more treatment options, such as breast conserving surgery or less aggressive treatment.

A mammogram is a low dose X-ray that produces an image of the inner breast tissue on film. This technique, called mammography, is used to visualize normal and abnormal structures within the breasts.

This site is not intended to provide medical advice and does not substitute for seeing your physician. It is governed by the rules and by-laws of various federal and provincial authorities. As it stands, internet communication is not considered secure or confidential.

Medical Students and Trainees

Thursday, March 10, 2011

At times, you may encounter a medical student, resident or assistant. We have been teaching in our practice for 20 years. We feel that this allows for more direct time with a care-giver, and does result in thorough evaluation of problems.

All trainees are directly supervised, and all cases are discussed usually at length, and after your visit has ended or when results are available. We feel that this may enhance care-giving.


Your Personal Information

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Your personal information and medical problems are kept confidential. Please remember that the age of medical consent is 16 in Ontario. Files of children under 16 are kept with their parents. All 18 year olds have their own medical record charts. It is often a tricky situation as to how to convey information between family members.

What is important is to keep your ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER updated in our system. Situations arise where we cannot contact you because of out-dated information.

This is vital.
