            Dr. Muhammad Khan is coming to the Woodville Medical Centre. He will take over care for Dr. Maria Cescon’s patients when she retires in early November.

            “I am delighted that Dr. Khan has agreed to care for all patients in my practice,” said Cescon. “I will be able to begin my retirement with the knowledge that my patients will have

no gaps in their ongoing care needs.”

            She went on to commend the Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative (KLHCI) for “all their excellent work to recruit family doctors to our area. It has been a pleasure to work together to facilitate Dr. Khan’s arrival.”

            Khan has a Specialty Certificate in Internal Medicine from the Saudi Arabian Commission for Health Specialties, a General Internal Medicine degree from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland—and completed a Family Medicine Residency at the University of Western Ontario in 2015.

            Khan and his wife have two sons and say they are looking forward to “putting down roots” in the community.

            Recruitment and Retention Coordinator for KLHCI Cindy Snider said she first met Khan during a recruitment event in 2013. “I am always very proud to represent KLHCI and the City of Kawartha Lakes when attending recruitment events throughout the province, particularly when they are the beginning to a successful recruitment.”

            Khan will join the doctors of the CKL Family Health Team, working with the team’s nurse practitioners, family health nurses, dietician, pharmacists, psychologist, clinical social workers, occupational therapist and respiratory therapist to provide complete health care.

            KLHCI is a non-profit, charitable organization whose mandate is to recruit and retain family doctors for the City of Kawartha Lakes.
