Ravines Medical Group
The principals of the Ravines Medical Group have been providing healthcare services and solutions for over 50 years in Atlantic Canada. Medical centres and pharmacies make up our patient access points across Nova Scotia. We are committed to developing and delivering innovative community based health care solutions to meet the needs of our patients.
Our goal is to create collaborative clinics where physicians can work together and with allied healthcare providers for common patient goals. The Ravines Medical Group takes care of the business and administration needs for the physicians so that they are free to focus on patient care. Our commitment to patient centric services motivates the entire medical team to aspire to comprehensive services promoting the health and well-being of each and every patient. Patient dignity, health and wellness are our passion.
The physician is in full control of their appointment parameters and we can accommodate a variety of scheduling types. We have the ability to tailor to each physician’s unique needs; our model allows for the physician to set the appointment schedule to their preference which allows for the flexibility to have outside assignments (ie: Hospitalist, Nursing Homes). We believe that this allows physicians the ability to maximize their scope of practice and expand their skill sets.
