Welcome to Medical Associates

Medical Associates is also known as the Parry Sound Family Health Organization (PSFHO), which is a model of primary health care designed to focus on preventative health care in addition to traditional treatment of illness.


Our PSFHO is part of the Parry Sound Family Health Team, which consists of Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHPs), such as a Nurse Practitioner, Mental Health Workers and a Pharmacist.    If you are a PSFHO rostered patient, you are eligible to access these services.


Since becoming a Family Health Network Primary Care Model in 2004, Medical Associates has introduced various unique methods of patient care.  We are proud to have Registered Nurses who specialize in well-women preventative care management of pap smears and mammograms, obstetrical moms, babies and post-partum wellness assessments, childhood immunization, INR point of care testing and management along with diabetic monitoring and management.  We look forward to continually adding RN specialties to our scope of practice and treatment.


Since 1965, when Medical Associates Clinic was built, Primary Health Care has evolved from the good old days when your doctor had to see you to treat you to the current concept of managing your health without necessarily having to see your doctor.  Our highly skilled Receptionists, Doctors’ Assistants, Medical Secretary and Registered Nurses form this resource team and strive to accommodate patient needs with little or no inconvenience to the patient.   We eagerly seek ways to and continue to improve your health care experience with us.

    Stand Up To Diabetes! Ontario, it's time to stand up to diabetes, to learn about risk factors in getting it, possibly preventing it, and managing it if you already have it. You can do it. Diabetes is on the rise. In 2007/08, approximately 969,000 Ontarians had diabetes. By 2010, that number may reach 1.2 million. (Lipscombe 2007). Why the need for action? Diabetes is a serious disease that needs managing. If neglected, it can lead to serious, long-term health complications, including heart and kidney disease, stroke, blindness and amputation, and accounts for a significant number of emergency rooms visits each year. Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented through healthy eating, weight management and exercise. By making the right lifestyle choices, both types of diabetes can be managed; letting you live a long and healthy life
