Important Information for Patients of Dr. Adriaan Windt
As many of you may be aware, I have recently taken a more active role in medical research at UBC and reduced my hours at Gateway Healthcare to 3 days per week at the beginning of 2015. My 2-year Clinician Scholar Program, which transitions physicians from a clinician to a clinician-researcher, recently concluded in June 2016. I will now be continuing with my diabetes research, and expanding to locations outside of Abbotsford as well as establishing group-based chronic disease management programs in Abbotsford. The result of these initiatives is that my schedule will change again beginning September 2016.
As Gateway Healthcare uses a team-based care model, the clinic collectively provides the best care for our patients to ensure the best possible outcomes even when individual physician commitments undergo change. So, despite my increasing research commitments, the Gateway team will continue to provide the best possible care to you as a Gateway patient. Though you may not be able to see me every time you need medical care, one of my colleagues will be happy to see you.
Starting in September, I will be at Gateway Tuesdays (all day), Thursday afternoons, as well as some Friday mornings. I appreciate your understanding and will answer questions if you need further clarification. It has been my pleasure to serve you as your Family Physician.
Best of health!
Dr. Adriaan Windt
