Not Currently Accepting Patients

Please note that unfortunately all three of our physicians have very full practices and we are unable to accommodate any further patients at this time in order to provide best patient care with the full slates of patients that we already have in our care. 
You can register on the www.pnwdoctor.ca to be added to a waitlist. ***Please note that this waitlist can be accessed by any clinics in your region not specific to our clinic. ***

Prenatal Team

November 30, 2018

We at Northern Roots are excited about the development of the 4th trimester perinatal project. Our perinatal nurse- Anna Harrison - are providing care for pregnant women and their infants before, during and after birth.  Creating a team with Dr. Haskins, the perinatal team is available for care and support in the office, at home, and by text. Prenatal education, breastfeeding support, newborn and postpartum care are some of the areas of focus. We are looking forward to working with you in this stage of your lives

Who Are We? //

How we are doing things during the Covid Pandemic // 2022

We are doing virtual and in person appointments. We encourage you to  tell our MOAs what your appointment is regarding, and they will help you with booking appropriately . All prescription refills must have an appointment to be refilled. MOA's cannot give you your results over the phone without first discussing with your Doctor, and after that the Doctor may call themselves or want an appointment with you to discuss, or let the MOA know what results they can relay. 

We appreciate all the patience with our staff and community as we are continually changing with our times in this 'New Normal".

     We are a team of three physicians and three medical office assistants who are looking to create a medical home for our patients in the valley. We want you to feel comfortable coming to see your doctor and are working towards this every day. While each patient has a designated physician, we also cover each other regularly. In this way you will be seeing a physician you are comfortable with, and who has access to all your notes and records.

     We are also a teaching clinic and you will sometimes be seen by a resident or medical student during your visit. This is very important for their education and ours as students always bring in new information. If you are uncomfortable with this please let us know in advance when booking your appointment.
