Welcome to Dr Nobar
The Fort St John Family Practice associates are pleased to announce that Dr Martin Nobar will be joining us starting August1st. Dr Nobar joins us from the St Paul’s Residency Program for International Medical Graduates.
Dr Nobar is taking over Dr Mackey's parictice and will be accepting new patients. If you would like to register with him as a patient, we ask you to please come to the clinic to be registered as our phone lines are already very busy. If you do call to register you will be directed to come in to the clinic to do so in order to keep our phone lines fee for regular scheduling. If you wish to complete a registration form in advance it can be found in the “Your First Clinic Visit” section of our web page.
Dr Sadri is no longer accepting new patients as his practice is full.
Letter from Dr Mackey
To my patients and the community of Fort St John
My family and I will be leaving Fort St John in September 2016 to volunteer/work in Zimbabwe and Uganda for 3 months and and work in Australia for 6 months before relocating to southern BC. As a result of the hard work of the Fort St John Division of Family Practice, Dr Martin Nobar will be coming in August to take on my practice. Dr Nobar is a Canadian who did his medical degree in the Caribbean before completing his residency in the St Paul’s International Medical Graduate Residency Site.
It is hard to believe that we arrived in Fort St John 20 years ago, directly after I completed my Family Practice training. Over that time, we have raised our children and been warmly accepted in and strongly supported by the community and workplace colleagues. I am certain Dr Nobar and his wife will experience the same welcome.
I would like to thank you all for your trust, understanding, humour and the education you have provided me. Working and living in Fort St John has been a wonderful experience and we will miss so many people and the community as a whole. I wish you all well, especially during these uncertain economic times. We will certainly be back to visit.
Dr Paul Mackey
Please note that we regularly have training doctors working with us in the clinic. You will be asked if you are comfortable with having the training doctor present at your consultation. We encourage you to be a part of training the doctors we need for the future of health care in Canada.
