The Associate Clinic, Primary Care and You
The Associate Clinic is first of all a primary care medical clinic. As such, we have 9 family physicians, also also known as general practitioners (GPs). Some have further training in other medical specialties.
We encourage you to seek out a physician for yourself and your family to ensure the best care over the long-term.
Unscheduled patients will be seen by one of our physicians but they may have to wait unless it is an emergency. Serious emergencies should contact the hospital at 627-1234. Or call 911.
We suggest you bring your current medications when you visit your doctor. That way he or she can review those prescriptions and be sure they are up to date.
When you receive health services of any kind from this clinic, we collect individually identifying personal and health information from you and share this within the clinic and with other health service providers that need the information to provide you with health services. The personal health information that you provide is collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the provisions of the Health Information Act (HIA), and is primarily used to provide diagnostic, treatment and care services to you, and to bill the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan for services provided. The privacy provisions of the legislation require that we protect your health information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure or destruction.
