Our Nurse Practitioner (NP) provides primary health care services to those without a family doctor. An NP is an independent primary care professional with advanced nursing practice, who works independently and manages their own patient panels. They often work closely to support our family doctors and other health professions to provide comprehensive and continuous care.
Services: writing prescriptions, performing medical procedures such as pap tests & suture removal, ordering and interpreting lab tests (including routine cancer screening) and diagnosing and treating illnesses for patients from childhood to adulthood.
For Bow Valley residents seeking to see the Nurse Practitioner as their primary care provider, please call 403.675.3000 to book an appointment.
