​`With knowledge and compassion, and in partnership with our patient`s beliefs and goals, we strive to promote complete health but most importantly, ease suffering`

Our entire team are committed to team based care, and our physicians are patient centered.

We are dedicated to the specialty of Family Practice and understand we are uniquely placed to advocate for patient's healthcare needs. We will strive to fulfill this obligation.

Announcements:

Dr Nishio will be stepping back from her role of managing her patient list from August. She will remain with the group however. Her letter to patients can be viewed here:

 

 

Moving forward we are excited to announce Dr Arneesh Grewal will be joining the group. She will resume the care of patients currently registered with Dr Nishio.

Sports Medicine

Dr Andrew Robb has joined the group and is attached to Port Augusta Family Practice as a dedicated Sports Medicine Physician. Dr Robb completed his enhanced skills training in Sports and Exercise Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in 2019. Appointments can be made with Dr Robb through a referral from your family physician. Dr Robb will be able to assess and manage acute musculoskeletal injuries, tendon injuries, arthritis, trigger fingers, joint injections and concussions.

Dr Ingrey's practice has evolved

The goals are to embrace team-based care and ensure we can offer registration to as many patients as possible without compromising access to appointments. We have 2 modern, purpose built clinics in strategic locations with both offering ample parking. The ability to offer appointments in a timely manner is key to primary care and our expansive team strives to meet this demand. With same day appointments and the ability to talk with a familiar member of your team 24/7, we continue to improve the care we can deliver. We offer tailored consultations by telephone, face to face 'virtual care' and in-person appointments. All of our physicians offer home visits to our most frail and vulnerable. 

To assist in the management of Dr Ingrey's patient list he has been joined by registered nurses, Vonnie Walton and Jenn Harrison. These new roles will be instrumental in the delivery of care to patients with hypertension, diabetes, heart failure and chronic kidney disease.  RN roles will also extend to:

  • PAP screening 

  • Contraception advice/contraception starts 

  • Wound care

  • Post discharge follow up for recently admitted patients 

Online appointment booking is here! To streamline appointment bookings (and beat our busy phone lines!), you can now book appointments any time from your phone or smart device. More details and the registration process can be found here
