Dr. Choi studied at the Universities of Toronto and Sydney, and completed her family medicine residency training at Queen’s University.
During medical school, Dr. Choi did an elective in family medicine at a clinic in Lindsay, and liked both the medical community and the City of Kawartha Lakes. She is looking forward to continuing to establish her practice and personal life in Kawartha Lakes and enjoying the local features.
Dr. Choi has joined the City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team, where she will work with the team’s nurse practitioners, family health nurses, dietician, pharmacists, psychologist, clinical social workers, occupational therapist and respiratory therapist to offer complete health care to patients.
The family health team also partners with other local health organizations and offers a variety of health programs, all with the aim of helping keep residents healthy.
If you currently have a family doctor, you must first “deroster” from her or him by calling Service Ontario at 1-866-532-3161. Then you can register with Health Care Connect.
The number of unattached patients, and those who have to travel long distances to see a family doctor, continues to be reduced through the work of the Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative (KLHCI). A significant number of citizens can now receive much needed primary health care services in their own community.
“It is very rewarding to have the recruitment efforts of KLHCI meet with continued success,” says Cindy Snider, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator. KLHCI is a non-profit, charitable organization (www.kawarthalakesdoctors.org) whose mandate is to recruit and retain family doctors for CKL.
