Individual family practices
After completing his medical training at the University of Alberta, Peter moved to Calgary in 1999. He took over and expanded an existing family practice in the Beltline, and though the practice changed buildings, Peter remained with it for the last 18 years. It has been his pleasure and honour to serve his patients on 17th Avenue; however, with the opportunity to open a physician-owned clinic, Cura Family Practice, he says goodbye to the Red Mile. Peter looks forward to continuing to serve his family practice patients at this new location, a short walk from his home in Chinook Park. He hopes his patients will find the new clinic as inviting as he does, and he looks forward to seeing them in this new space.
After growing up in the small town of Salmon Arm, B.C. and then moving to Alberta to complete her medical training, Claire is excited to finally start a family practice of her own. Although the adoption of city life has offered her husband the opportunity to pursue his career as a urologist and researcher at the Rockyview Hospital, it changed any plans that Claire may have had to practice rural family medicine. However, with the partnership in Cura Family Practice, a physician-owned clinic, she sees the opportunity to start a family practice that promotes the connection between physician and patient that is the core of family medicine. It is that relationship that will be the foundation for the medical home she envisions for her family practice patients. Although she enjoyed her time as a long-term locum at Oak Bay Medical Centre, now that her three children are in school, she looks forward to this new and exciting chapter of her life.
