The physicians who practise at Magenta Health are all family doctors who focus on providing comprehensive primary care to a diverse population of individuals and families.  They are passionate about preventative medicine and empowering patients to take an active role in their health and well-being. In deciding to build their practice at Magenta Health, each has committed to accepting and following patients in the long-term, and looks forward to having an opportunity to provide care for those in their community.

All Magenta Health family physicians are fully qualified and trained to provide primary care to men, women (including expectant mothers), seniors, children, and infants. Where appropriate, referrals are made to outside physicians who have specialized in certain medical issues or procedures.
