Dr. Cara Flamer

Dr. Cara Flamer, has been practicing family medicine in Toronto for the past 8 years. She was raised in Vancouver before moving across the country to continue her education. She completed her undergraduate studies at McGill University and her medical degree at Queen's University in Kingston, followed by a residency in Family Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Flamer's passion is wholistic health, whereby a patient's physical, emotional and spiritual levels are simultaneously addressed in order to achieve an optimal outcome. She is the Medical Director of New Beginnings Integrative Medicine downtown where she specializes in women's health, making us very lucky to have her part-time at the Earl Bales Walk-In Clinic.

Dr. Larissa Seredycz

Dr. Larissa Seredycz is now working a limited schedule at our clinic due to significant external commitments. Dr. Seredycz is a locum physician who will be seeing Dr. Koffman's patients in addition to seeing walk-in patients (this physician has not taken and will not be able to take new patients). We look forward to having her join us in the clinic from time to time.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, she's a real prairie girl(!) who completed her Undergraduate, Master's of Science and Medical Degree in Winnipeg. She then completed her post graduate education in Calgary before recently relocating to Toronto. Embued with what some may consider a difficult to pronounce last name (Hint: it's pronounced "Sir-ed-ditch"), Larissa revels in her Ukrainian heritage and is thankful every day for the trust and patience of her patients.
