How to see Dr. Russell

(updated on March 21, 2017)

Dr. Russell is committed to serving as many island residents as possible at the Wolfe Island Community Medical Clinic. She is a member of the Kingston Family Health Team (KFHT) and practices within the guidelines of the Family Health Team model.

Beginning June 4, 2013, Dr Russell will begin a walk-in clinic for all residents of Wolfe Island! She will see her regular patients by appointment only, on Tuesday afternoons from 1:00 – 4:00pm. If you would like to become a regular patient of Dr. Russell’s, please call the office at 613-650-5471 or go to the Kingston Family Health Team at http://kfhn.ca/.

On the unexpected occasion that Dr. Russell may not be available, please call the number above to check if she is at the clinic.

Residents of Wolfe Island who currently have a primary care physician who is part of the Kingston Family Health Team (KFHT) may change to Dr. Russell if they wish her to become their primary care physician. Call the number for appointments to make the change.

Enrolling with Dr. Russell as your family doctor permits the following:

  • Visits at the Wolfe Island Clinic or her Kingston office.
  • Access to other KFHT doctors at her 800 Princess Street location who cover for her if she is away from the office for an extended time.
  • Access to other health professionals such as nurse practitioners, registered nurses, a dietician, a social worker, a psychologist (including various mental health group sessions), and various team-based health programs, including foot and diabetes care.
  • Use of the KFHT after-hours clinic (located at the Shopper’s Drug Mart at Princess & Centennial, and is open Monday to Friday, 5-8 pm, excluding holidays).

If you do not currently have a primary care physician, you can become a patient of Dr. Russell’s by calling the office listed below. You will be scheduled at the Wolfe Island Community Medical Clinic.

If you want to begin seeing Dr. Russell as your primary care physician, but have been seeing another family physician, you must de-roster from your current physician and phone Dr. Russell’s office for an appointment to roster with her. This procedure is a requirement from the Ministry of Health.

Please note that the WI Medical Clinic is not equipped at this time for suturing (stitches), applying splints/casts, or for major life-threatening medical problems. Patients with these problems or worse should go to Hotel Dieu Urgent Care or Kingston General Hospital Emergency Department, or call 9-1-1.
