Why are family doctors important?

Your family doctor is your main point of contact between yourself and specialists in the healthcare system. When a patient uses a walk-in clinic, instead of seeing their family doctor, there is a lack of continuity of care. Most walk-in clinics do not have your complete medical history. Your family doctor will not receive reports, test results or know what treatment or referrals were made by a walk-in clinic.

Being enrolled at a Family Health Organization, such as Lincoln Medical Centre, you have access to phone appointments, easy medication renewals, a support team for diabetic patients as well as personalized care by doctors who follow you and your family through life.

Flu Shots Now Available

Flu shots are now available for patients 6 months of age and older. Senior dose flu shots are available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be reserved as we receive limited supplies.

Nurses Corner

Have you received notice for a FIT Kit? If you are between the ages 50 to 74 a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) is a painless and easy part of preventative health to screen for colorectal cancer or precancerous polyps by using antibodies to detect blood in the stool.

Once you have been notified for a FIT Kit contact our clinic and we will work with LifeLabs to mail the kit directly to you. We do not have these kits in office and you must have an Ontario address and current health card to receive the package. You have the option to drop the completed kit off at your nearest LifeLabs or mail it back using the pre-paid envelope included.

Please note that these tests are time sensitive and must be returned within 14 days of being completed. There is a 6 month window to complete the testing. If the results are normal you may repeat your screening again in 2 years. For instructions on how to complete the test please visit Cancer Care Ontario.
