The reality is that many Ontarians find it very difficult to obtain a family doctor. Not only are doctors in short supply but many focus only on certain areas of practise, ie; sports medicine, palliative care, obstetrics and others.
It is not ideal to obtain your primary care from walk-in clinics or emergency departments. Working with a family doctor who knows your health history and understands your personal preferences when it comes to your health care is always the better way to go. We hope the below list of tips will help you to find a family doctor!
The Health Locator Team
If you have been involved in a MVA and you already have a family doctor, you may ask your family doctor if he/she has registered himself/herself on HCAI. If he/she is not registered on HCAI, please forward them this web address: http://hcaiinfo.ca/Health_Care_Facility_Provider/New/index.asp

If your family doctor is not on our Directory, please tell him/her about us! The registration is FREE and they gain access to the numerous resources and other health professionals that may help their patients in their recovery process.
