The purpose of It Takes A Doctor is to reinforce the value and expertise of Ontario's doctors and showcase the health care solutions they’re creating and implementing within communities across Ontario that are having a real-life impact on patient care.
It takes doctors years to train and they have to make many personal sacrifices to best treat patients and their families. Although the health care system is far from perfect and the challenges are complicated, there is no question that physicians are the trained and experienced medical experts that can help fix a damaged system. From lack of access to care to hallway medicine, it truly takes a doctor to step up and find solutions that best care for patients, and the system that cares for them.
