Bolton is a young growing community in the Town of Caledon, just north of Brampton. It is unique in the fact that it is close to many areas including Brampton, Etobicoke, Orangeville, Allsiton and Newmarket. The doctors in Bolton have patients coming in to see them from all of these areas. Although Bolton is not considered to be an underserviced area, this community has an abundance of opportunities for new physicians.
Dr. Nihal El Khouly is the primary preceptor at this clinic site. She joined her group in 2007 and then in 2014, she became the acting lead of the Bolton Family Health Organization which is comprised of 11 physicians and growing. This FHO has clinics spread throughout the Bolton community. Dr. El Khouly works with Dr. Merril Smullen who has been in practice for 30 years. Both physicians are very enthusiastic about teaching and sharing their experience with young learners. This clinic also includes two assistants and three part-time nurses. There is also a nutritionist who visits the clinic periodically to counsel patients.
