GAP appointments

Santé Kildare recognizes that many patients do not have access to a family physician. We collaborate with the Guichet d'Accès Populationnel (GAP) and provide daily appointments to patients registered in our territory with the Guichet d’accès à un médecin de famille. Assigned patients are collectively registered to our group and have access to our multidisciplinary team. Patient must book appointments directly with the GAP. Call 8-1-1 option 3.

Green Health

Santé Kildare uses the Green Office Toolkit, developed by the Canadian Coalition of Green Health Care and the Hamilton Family Health Team to:

  • reduce unnecessary medication use to prevent harm to patients and decrease health care’s environmental impact
  • switch from metered-dosed inhalers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • emphasize cancer screening and smoking cessation
  • promote plant-rich eating
  • prescribe nature (Prescri-Nature)
  • decrease emissions and waste

Medication Review

Schedule a meeting with the GMF pharmacist, Annie St-Onge, to review your medications. Annie can discuss indications, administration, dosing, effectiveness, interactions and possible side effects.  She can help you whether you are starting a new medication or trying to wean off another.

Nurse Practitioner

Our team is enhanced with the addition of Jennifer Reoch, Cynthia Malo and Claire Tissier as Nurse Practitioners.  Nurse practitioners (NPs), like family physicians, emphasize health promotion and illness prevention.  NPs complement the care delivered by other health providers and are trained to provide a wide range of health services directly to patients such as annual physicals, treatment for short-term acute illnesses (ie. infections), monitor patients with stable chronic conditions (ie. diabetes), order testing and organize referrals.

Nutrition - Healthy Eating and Weight loss

Our dietician, Myriam Gehami, can help you reach your nutritional goals. Myriam has a vast and diverse background; she can help with numerous conditions including Diabetes, high blood pressure, eating disorders, malnutrition, irritable bowel syndrome, Celiac disease and kidney disease, among others. You can consult Myriam while pregnant or breastfeeding. She can also assist with children and picky eaters. Myriam's services are covered completely by RAMQ.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a type of health care that helps to solve the problems that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them – everyday things like:
  • Self-care - getting dressed, eating, moving around the house,
  • Being productive - going to work or school, participating in the community, and
  • Leisure activities - sports, gardening, social activities.

Santé Kildare is excited to welcome Lisa Kirsch, the first occupational therapist to join a GMF in Quebec.

Pap Clinic

Our doctors and nurse practitioners now offer Pap clinics one evening or weekend day per month.
Routine pap tests are an important tool in the reduction of cervical cancer cases and deaths.
Pap tests are only available to patients registered in our GMF.

Santé Kildare physicians are connected to the new Quebec Virtual Care Platform (PSV). Virtual consultations can now be sent to dermatologists using photos and clinical information provided by our family doctors. The diagnosis and action plan are communicated back to our physicians who can prescribe the treatment and provide follow-up for the condition.
Details on format requirements for photos can be found here.
