QUALITY PATIENT CARE
Complete Medical Care for the whole family.
The Pembroke Family Medicine Teaching Unit (PFMTU) aims to provide high-quality comprehensive primary care to individuals of all ages. Our team consists of 8 Physicians, 2 Physician assistants, nurses, admin and medical learners. We are affiliated with the University of Ottawa Department of Family Medicine as a rural teaching unit and aim to prepare the next generation of Residents and Med Students to provide high-quality rural health care anywhere in Canada.
We are aware of the shortages of primary care in our region, and health care leaders across Renfrew County are working together on this. If you do not have a family doctor please register on health care connect, so that you can be matched when one becomes available.
Prepare For Your Visit
Bring your OHIP card, proof of insurance or payment, and a current list of prescriptions.
