Dr. Sabine & Dr. Wellwood operate as part of the Wolfville Collaborative Family Practice. In a collaborative practice multiple health team members from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, caregivers, and communities. It allows patients to be seen by the most appropriate provider and improves access to high quality care. Our practice encompasses eight family physicians, two family practice nurses and a social worker. We also collaborate with dietitians, mental health professionals, and certified exercise physiologists. Certain clinical issues can be best addressed by specific team members, all working within their own practice scope.
As a collaborative practice, there may be times when members of the care team, other than your primary care provider, is called upon to access your chart. For example, your primary care provider may ask one of our family practice nurses to follow up with you regarding a particular test result or clinical concern.
