Patient, Family & Caregiver Experience

A family doctor or nurse practitioner is your primary health care provider – meaning they are the person you make an appointment with when you have a new, non-emergency health concern.

There are two options to find a family doctor or nurse practitioner who is accepting new patients:

  1. Register with Health Care Connect service and have a nurse find a doctor or nurse practitioner for you.
  2. Use The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario’s Find a Doctor search.
  1. choose Advanced Search” to find a doctor near you (by city/town or postal code)
  2. click on “Additional Search Options” to narrow your search (to family doctors and/or language spoken)
  3. contact the doctor to check if they are accepting new patients

If you wish, you can visit the Ontario Health website for more information.

As a reminder, patients requiring immediate care should go to their closest Emergency Department.
