NOTICE Regarding Dr. Andrea Freitas

Dear patient of Dr. Andrea Freitas,

I regret to inform you that I am ending my family medicine practice at Synergy Womens Medical Center on
December 31, 2022. I (or locum physician) will be available to continue to provide you with medical care until
this date. At this time, there are no physicians accepting patients at the clinic and as such I encourage you to
find a physician as soon as possible. Locum physicians or other staff physicians at the clinic will be unable to
provide you care after December 31, 2022. Please use the following resources to find a new family physician:

To find a new family physician, please:
– Visit https://albertafindadoctor.ca or

– Call the Sherwood Park-Strathcona County Primary Care Network (PCN) at (780) 410-8000

Your medical records will remain in Synergy Womens Wellness Center unless your written authorization is
received to transfer them to another physician outside our clinic, as is required by the College of Physicians
and Surgeons of Alberta. Your new family physician may request a copy of your medical records by faxing the
authorization to our office.

You may also access some of your health records at:

It has been a pleasure to be able to provide medical care for you and I wish you all the best.
