New Physician Joining the Town of Gore Bay Medical Team

Gore Bay, ON - April 25—Gore Bay's healthcare community is proud to welcome a new addition to its esteemed team of physicians. Dr. Zeshan Talib will join the Gore Bay medical team in the Fall of 2024.

The town is incredibly fortunate that Dr. Talib has chosen Gore Bay as his practice location, considering the ongoing physician shortage crisis across the province, particularly in Northern Ontario.

Dr. Talib was drawn to the unique charm of the rural municipality. After an extensive tour across Western Manitoulin, meeting with representatives from each community, and experiencing the exceptional amenities, such as the local public school, he has eagerly accepted the offer to join the Gore Bay medical team.

"I am thrilled to be joining the Gore Bay community and to have the opportunity to work alongside such dedicated healthcare professionals," says Dr. Talib. "My goal is to build strong relationships with my patients and provide them personalized care that meets their unique needs."

"We are delighted to welcome Dr. Talib to Gore Bay Medical Centre," says Dr. Hamilton, Physician, at Gore Bay Medical Centre. His passion for patient care and depth of experience make him a valuable addition to our team. We look forward to his positive impact on the health and wellness of our community."

“The successful recruitment of Dr. Talib was a collective effort, showcasing the strength and unity of our community. Our dedicated physicians (Doctors Hamilton, McCrae, and Wilson), committed volunteers, and the unwavering support of the Town of Gore Bay all played a crucial role”, says Ron Lane, Mayor of Gore Bay. “Thank you to the Ministry of Health for their vision to support Foreign Trained Family Physicians. We are thrilled to have Dr. Talib join the local practice and are truly thankful to the Ministry for affording us this opportunity.”
