Family medicine began with the home visit.

To this day, it’s still considered the highest level of family and primary care.

 

As population grew, the pool of doctors could not keep up. The home visit was no longer economically viable.

Patients were herded to the family doctor’s office, requiring appointments thus adversely affecting wait time and convenience.

The public’s need for on-demand medical attention led to a no-appointment, walk-in, clinic-based system.

The walk-in was born:
a substantive compromise on both sides.

After receiving his training at University of Manitoba.  
Omar went on to take leading roles within his departments of hospital medicine and emergency medicine within BC and Alberta.  Working for over 10 years in these fields and gaining a status of clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia he has taught many students and interns. He has now brought his skills and experience to help fill the ever growing void of top level community medicine and aid in it's implementation at medi-call.

A fierce believer in resilience, customers first, and team member engagement, Omar is driven by his passion to deliver innovative healthcare solutions and improve health outcomes for all Canadians
