Our Doctors
We are a diverse group of family doctors, nurses and a physician assistant who are committed to providing excellence in healthcare.

A Letter to Dr. Derrick’s patients:
After moving out of Durham Region in the summer of 2020, I did not foresee that I would still be working with Brooklin Medical Centre (BMC) in 2022. As you are aware, Dr. Kevin Lam is officially your family doctor now. I have continued to work with him, phoning my (former) patients and managing your health care concerns as best I can without seeing you in person. However, as things open up and medical offices try to return to more in-person visits, there has become less need for a physician working exclusively by phone.
As a result of a return to medical appointments in person, it is time for me to completely turn the reins over to Dr. Lam. Nurse practitioner Carol Klupsch kindly will continue to help out as well.
As of May, I will have been a member of BMC for 22 years. I want to thank BMC, Dr. Lam, and all of you for allowing me this extra time to transition to my “new normal.” My last day will be May 16, 2022.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life journey. I will miss you and all that you have meant to mine.
All the best,
Dr. Sue Derrick

In order to maintain social distancing and remain compliant with Public Health and OMA guidelines, we will be scheduling appointments for the flu clinic this year.  If you feel you are high risk, please contact the office to book an appointment as the high dose supply is limited.  Please be aware that pharmacies are also offering flu clinics this year.  Our high dose clinic will begin at the end of October and the regular flu clinic will start the second week of November 2020,  You must schedule an appointment to receive the flu vaccine.

About Us & What We Do

The Brooklin Medical Centre provides care to members of the Brooklin community and surrounding area. Our family physicians provide family medical services, hormone therapy and a number of minor procedures, ranging from newborn circumcision to mole removal. These services are provided to current registered patients of the clinic.
Family Medicine

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

The term “physical” is often used to describe wellness care. However, a traditional, head-to-toe physical has not been shown to lower your risk of illness or injury. At your wellness visit, our health care team will take a health history and provide several other services:

  • Screenings to detect depression, risk for falling and other problems
  • A limited physical exam to check your blood pressure, weight, vision and other things depending on your age, gender and level of activity
  • Recommendations for other wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes

These preventative health visits do not often deal with new health problems; typically, new problems should be addressed at a separate visit with appropriate time to assess the issues properly. Please let our scheduling staff know if you need the doctor’s help with a new health problem. We may need to schedule a separate appointment.

Immunization

FLU SHOTS:

For adults 65 and older: For the 2019-2020 season, adults over 65 years of age are recommended to have the High Dose flu vaccine. The High Dose flu vaccine is only available in doctor’s offices, and not available at the pharmacy. We now have the High Dose flu vaccine available – please call the office to book an appointment with our nurse.

For adults under 65, and children 5 years and older: We currently have a limited supply of regular flu vaccines; as a result, we recommend you visit a pharmacy for your flu vaccine. We should receive additional supply in a few weeks, and will be able to offer the flu vaccine in our office at that time. **High risk individuals are strongly encouraged to get their flu vaccine; high risk includes: people with heart or lung disease, diabetes, cancer, immunosuppression and pregnant women.**

For children 4 and under: We currently have a limited supply of regular flu vaccines; as a result, we will prioritize administration to children 4 and under, who are unable to receive a flu vaccine at the pharmacy – please call the office to book an appointment with our nurse.

Registration and Booking
New patients can call to book an appointment with an available physician as a ‘meet and greet’. If the physician and the patient agree that the clinic is  appropriate for their care, enrollment forms are signed. Patients booked for the initial appointment are NOT considered part of the practice. Health records are not to be transferred into our possession until after the intake is completed.

Registered patients can book:
by phone, during business hours, by calling 905-655-3321
