The Southlake Academic Family Health Team is a group of health care providers that work together to provide the best possible care of all patients.
Our team is made up of:
Your Primary Care Provider (PCP) - the main person to whom you go for concerns and questions about your overall health. This person can be a Family Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, or Resident.
Nurse Practitioners (NP) - a nurse with additional training and education that enables them to diagnoze and treat illnesses, order tests, prescribe medications, and more!
Registered Nurses (RN) - a healthcare professional licensed to provide and coordinate patient care after receiving specialized education. You might see a nurse for immunizations, ear flushing, baby check-ups, or staple removals.
Social Workers - regulated health professionals who work with individuals, families, groups, and communities to improve individual and collective well-being. Social workers help people address socal issues like oppression, discrimination, unemployment, and poverty.
Dietitian - a regulated health professional who is passionate about food and helps people understand the connection between food and health and work with you to embrace food, to understand it and to enjoy it.
Pharmacist - highly respected as the medication management experts of the health care team, pharmacists can deliver a range of innovative services including medication reviews, chronic disease management, and wellness programs.

With this approach, you may be seen by a Doctor, Resident Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse or another health team member depending on the complexity of your health concern.
