Family Health Organization

**We continue our partnership with Dr. Lai, Dr. Kazandji and Dr. Wang, who are located in other offices.  By registering with your physician as part of our FHO they can share electronic records, when covering the urgent care and in this way maintain continuity of your medical care.

PLEASE AVOID WALK-IN CLINICS NOT AFFILIATESD WITH OUR GROUP.

Registration in our group will entitle you to:

1) Extended hours on evenings and weekends

2) After-hours access to a Telephone Health Advisory Service whose qualified and experienced registered  nurses will give you advice or refer you to medical or emergency services if needed.

3) Better and more up-to-date information in your medical record. With your permission,  a report of visits and other investigations from members of the Family Health Organization who may provide services to you at our Urgent Care After Hours Clinic will be sent to your family doctor.

Our goal for the Family Health Organization is the opportunity for both Patients and Physicians to benefit from a new range of supportive services that will make it easier to provide accessible, comprehensive primary care to you with an emphasis on prevention.

For us to be successful in this venture we need your support. Please sign the Patient Enrolment and Consent to Release Personal Health Information Form (available in the office). By doing so you agree to come to the Markham Medical Centre Family Health Group first for all non-emergency primary health care. You also give your doctor permission to share appropriate and relevant medical information about you with other health care providers involved in your care. We request that you AVOID THE USE OF WALK IN CLINICS.
