Adami: Ottawa's potholes are nothing compared to last year

This might be one for Ripley’s Believe It or Not: Ottawa’s awfully cold winter actually did some good.

Though many motorists are convinced that potholes are out of control again on city streets — much like last year when service shops made a killing on damaged alignments, tires and suspensions — Luc Gagné, Ottawa’s manager of road services, says motorists have actually put up with a lot fewer this winter and spring because routine January and February thaws never materialized. 725 more words

Find a Family Doctor(寻找家庭医生)

家庭医生通常是诊断和治疗大部分疾病的第一个医生。如果您需要看专科医生,通常您需要家庭医生为您转诊。家庭医生也可预定实验室检验和其他检查。

在安省的许多地区都有家庭医生短缺的情况。您可能需要一些时间才能找到家庭医生。以下为几个小tips:
贴士1:询问家人、朋友或同事

一般说来,每个家庭都要指定一个家庭医生。但在加拿大规定每个家庭医生看的病人家庭数量是有限的,以保证其提供的服务质量,所以很多家庭医生并不接受新病人。但是如果有人介绍的话,他们仍乐意接受。如果你的家人或朋友可以向自己的家庭医生推荐你,绝对是一个不错的选择。

贴士2:上网查询

各地政府提供相应的服务。向你所居城市的加拿大医学会办事处College of Physicians and Surgeons查询,比如在安省,就可以自己直接上网http://www.cpso.on.ca/docsearch查找合适的家庭医生。输入你所需要的医生(家庭医生或专科医生),你住址邮编,所住城市,需要医生讲哪种语言,性别,和哪家医院挂钩,是否接收新病人等,搜索引擎会在数据库中找出合适的医生名单。

医疗护理连接(Health Care Connect)登记。该计划向您介绍正在接受新病人的当地医生或执业护士。您需要有OHIP才能使用本项服务。该计划是由健康及长期护理厅(Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care)管理的。
如需登记,请致电: 免费电话: 1-800-445-1822或在线查询ht… 46 more words
