Welcome to Fall River Family Practice

Fall River Family Practice is a collaborative  comprehensive medical practice providing primary care to many Nova Scotians. The clinic consists of 13 physicians, 2 family practice nurses, and an amazing team of administrative staff. 

Keeping You Up to Date

Have a doctors appointment? Keep it, or cancel it, but don't be a "No-Show"

In March we had 75 No Shows.             In April we had 91 No Shows.

This impacts our clinic wait times and interrupts our physicians day.

To avoid no-show fees, call 902-861-2237 select option 5 and follow the instructions. The line is available 24/7.

We are committed to a safe and respectful environment for all.

Aggression, intimidation and harassment will NOT be tolerated.

Violations of this policy will result in action up to and including dismissal from the practice.


 We are here to help, not be hurt.
