How do I sign up for a new family doctor?/What are the benefits of getting a family doctor?

  • What is rostering: When patients register with a family practice, family physician, or team. It allows patients to connect with an ongoing relationship with a family physician for continuous medical care. 

  • Benefits: In contrast to a “fee for service” model, family physicians in a Family Health Organization are compensated to take care of you even when you are not here for an official appointment! A rostered patient is more formally linked to their family doctor and/or team for greater continuity of care. We have easier access to the information needed for referrals to other specialists and health services. This also facilitates more effective preventative and chronic disease care.

  • Commitment from the patients:  Avoidance of using walk-in clinics i.e. contact us first

 

What languages are spoken?

All care provided at Citrus Medical is provided only in English. If a patient does not speak English, and already has a family doctor/clinic that they are able to communicate well with in another language, we strongly recommend that he or she not transfer to Citrus Medical - our view is that communication is an integral part of family medicine. 

 

If a patient with limited English ability wishes to register with Citrus Medical, please be aware that a delegate/translator may be required to help facilitate booking appointments, online correspondence, and in-person appointments. Please indicate what language(s) the patient does speak fluently when registering so that we can attempt to pair such patients with an appropriate physician.
