I am writing to inform you of a new and exciting change to my clinic. Dr. Richelle Olson is joining City Centre Family Physicians this month, and will be sharing my practice.
I am not sick, pregnant, moving, or planning to retire. My clinic hours will remain the same. This decision comes from hearing your frustration that it is difficult to get an appointment with me. I share this frustration with you. The ability to see your own doctor, in a timely efficient manner, is our ultimate goal. We believe that accessing all of your medical care in the same clinic will improve the quality of your medical care. It remains absolutely appropriate for you to see another doctor at CCFP, in the after-hours clinic or during the day, if our available appointments do not suit your schedule or the urgency of your concern.
Dr. Olson is a local graduate. Many of you will have already met her, as she has spent a lot of her training time with me. She impressed me with her skills, and her bedside manner, when she was a medical student. Her knowledge base and expertise have grown immensely over the years, and I consider her to be one of the best students I have ever had the pleasure of teaching.
You can consider one, or both of us, your primary physician as we will work closely together.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Olson to CCFP.
Dr. Shanna Fenton
