   Physician Search

Last Updated: Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Directions: Enter ANY of the criteria below and then click on "Search".

Note to physicians: The Physician Search is updated daily using information provided by the physicians. Third-party information is not accepted. Entries have been checked but errors and omissions may occur. Members are asked to inform the College of any inaccuracies or omissions using the Notification of Change form.

Note to patients: Inclusion in this listing does not mean that a physician is accepting new patients. The Nova Scotia Department of Health helps individuals find family practitioners who are accepting new patients. For more information, visit Family Physicians Accepting New Patients on the Nova Scotia Department of Health website or call (902) 424-3047. Due to high demand, the Department may not be able to respond immediately to patient requests. Patients who are experiencing urgent health problems should contact their nearest hospital emergency department.

* Note: Specialists do not ordinarily see patients without a referral from a family physician.
