A letter to Dr. Borden’s patients

By June 25, 2019Uncategorized

Dear Patients,

I am writing to notify you of some upcoming changes in my practice.

As of September 1, 2019, Dr. Procter will be stepping back from my active office practice. He will still be continuing on with his work in the hospital and locum work within our office, so I’m sure you will see him around! I thank him greatly for the support he has given me throughout my career.

As many of you are aware, I have a strong passion for the teaching of Resident Physicians, many of whom you have met over the years. I have been given the great opportunity to take on an exciting leadership role within the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University as the Site Director of our Family Medicine residency program in Halton. I am thrilled to be given this opportunity and look forward to the challenges it will bring.

Taking on this role will mean that, similar to my arrangement with Dr. Procter, I will have a new colleague, Dr Ambika Haran, joining me as my practice partner. Starting September 1, 2019 we will both be your Family Doctors, similar to how it was with Dr. Procter and I over the last 5 years.

We may contact you to sign a new patient Enrollment form. This is required by the Ministry of Health for you to continue seeing both of us for your care. Regardless of which “roster” you are attached to, you may still book with myself, Dr. Haran or both of us.

I am delighted to welcome Dr. Ambika Haran to my practice and look forward to her working with each of you over the coming years. Dr. Haran graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2011. She completed her Family Medicine residency and a fellowship in low risk obstetrics at the University of Toronto. She is an obstetrical and newborn care provider at William Osler Health System and has been practicing Family Medicine for the past 5 years. She is also active in medical education, serving as faculty at the University of Toronto and McMaster University. I am thrilled to welcome her to my practice and to the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre.

We thank you for your patience during this transition and look forward to working as a team to provide excellent care to the patients of our shared practice.


Susan Borden BN MD CCFP
