Family Medical and Dental Centre
Due to a flood at St. Joseph’s Family Medical and Dental Centre, there may be changes to some family medical patient appointments. (Dental patients are not impacted). You will be notified if there is any change to your appointment. Two family physicians - Dr. Laura Lyons and Dr. Saadia Jan - and their staff will temporarily move to St. Joseph’s Hospital while repairs are completed, which is expected to take about eight weeks. Patients of Dr. Lyons and Dr. Jan will be seen at St. Joseph’s Hospital during this time. Information on location, entrance screening and other details will be provided directly to those patients and you can also find turn by turn directions to the St. Joseph's Hospital Family Medical office here.
The St. Joseph’s Family Medical and Dental Centre provides comprehensive health care with a patient-centered focus. The centre partners with the Western University's Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry to support a quality undergraduate and post-graduate education program, advancing medical knowledge through clinical research.

Family Medical Clinic
Comprehensive care with a patient-centered focus
Family medicine at St. Joseph’s Family Medical and Dental Centre is delivered through health promotion, ongoing supportive care and the active treatment of disease. The centre is one of 18 family medicine groups working in partnership with the Thames Valley Family Health Team. The Family Health Team provides nurse practitioners, social workers, pharmacists, dietitians, occupational therapist, psychologists and other health care professionals who work with physicians as a team, each using their experience and skills to provide patient centred care.
The history of family medicine at St. Joseph’s is an illustrious one. It was the first full-service family medical centre in Canada. The centre was pivotal in recognizing that family medicine should be a community-based discipline focused on the needs of the patient, and interdisciplinary in nature.
