Don't Have a Family Doctor?

The Atikokan Family Health Team is inviting patients to register their name on the unrostered patients list.  Once registered on the list, a person is eligible to be rostered on a doctor's patient list as space becomes available.  It is important to register in order to enroll with an available doctor.  Rostering simply involves signing a form to indicate that Dr. X is your family physician.  It is a simple process that can be done online by clicking on the big red button on the right side of this screen called Doctor Sign Up or by calling 597-2721 and speaking with reception.  All you need to do is supply your name, date of birth, phone number and email address and you will be added to the list.  Once a spot becomes available you will be contacted.
