PRIMARY CARE

  • Provide comprehensive primary health care in person and through virtual visits for rostered clients of all ages, genders, or diseases. Please note we are not a walk-in clinic.

  • Promote prevention, health education, acute and chronic disease management.

  • Collaborate with other healthcare professionals to provide the right care at the right time.

  • Specific primary care services: bloodwork on site, well baby/child care and immunizations, preventative screening, IUD/IUS insertions and removals, minor procedures, PrEP counselling and treatment, trans care, and medical terminations.

  • At the Niagara Falls CHC we strive for providing evidence based care. If you are seeking our primary care service and are on narcotics and/or benzodiazepines  for chronic non-cancer pain, the standard of care is to wean off these medications. We do expect our clients to wean off these medications and optimize non-narcotic pain management strategies. Our goal is to work with clients who are ready and willing to support these strategies, if you are not ready, we will be unable to support you at this time and encourage you to contact us when you are ready.  

Family Physicians

Our family doctors are devoted to comprehensive primary health care for people of all ages, genders, or diseases. They are trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Our family doctors promote prevention and assist in helping clients manage their chronic conditions. At NFCHC family doctors work in conjunction with other health professionals to provide you with the right care at the right time.

They are able to perform check -ups, diagnose and treat illness, order tests, write prescriptions, provide education, perform procedures, and make referrals to physicians, specialists and other health care professionals.
