Why do I need a family physician?
In Canada, your family doctor is your main entry point to the healthcare system. We have expert knowledge of the wide range of common problems experienced. We recognize and consider personal and professional stress that may affect you. We know that providing you with the best care requires us not only to diagnose and treat your condition, but also to understand who you are and how your illness affects you. We want to help work with you to prevent chronic illness and support a healthy, functional and fulfilling lifestyle. We work with other specialist physicians and other allied health professionals such as nurses, social workers, pharmacists and therapists to provide you the best possible healthcare services.

I have a family physician but I’m interested in being seen at Unify Men’s Health
For various reasons, patients may wish to switch or transfer to a new family physician. It is in the interest of everyone that the patient/doctor relationship be positive. If a patient is not happy with their family physician, patients are encouraged to speak with their family doctor directly about any concerns they may have. If you would like to be seen by one of our specialists please discuss with your family physician to determine if this is a suitable referral. Contact Us - if we can help.
Can my wife and kids have the same family physician as me?
Of course! There are some great advantages to having the entire family be cared for by family physicians. The doctor would still treat everyone confidentiality as required but would understand the many intertwined social and emotional aspects affecting your families wellness. While Unify Men’s Health was designed specifically for men, many of our family physicians also work in the Leaside Village Medical Clinic in the very same building as Unify Men’s Health.
I just have an issue and it's urgent but not an emergency. Can I be seen?
