Notice to Patients of Dr. Barbara Varty

Notice to Patients of Dr. Barbara Varty

We are sad to announce the retirement of Dr. Barbara Varty from the Haliburton Family Medical Centre, effective November 22, 2017.  However, as a patient of Dr. Varty’s, you will be transferred to a new physician who is moving to Haliburton this winter.  Her name is Dr. Devon Tilbrook.  Dr. Tilbrook plans to start in the clinic in January 2018.  For the month of December the physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistant, along with a number of other allied health professionals, will continue to provide you with ongoing health care.

At this time we are not accepting any requests from Dr. Varty’s patients to transfer to another physician on our team.

As rostered patients of Dr. Varty’s, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care will reassign you to Dr. Tilbrook automatically.  You do not need to sign the patient enrolment form or consent again.  If you have any questions or concerns aroung this process please call Kim Robinson at 705-457-1212, ext. 368 to discuss.

We wish Dr. Varty all the best in her retirement.  She will be missed.
