The Rexdale Medical Centre is pleased to offer pain and symptom management at home for those patients who suffer from the late stages of many diseases such as Cancer, Dementia, Kidney failure, Heart Failure or Emphysema. Rexdale Medical Centre has three physicians that are trained and care for palliative care patients in local community. Dr. David Caplan, Dr. Joyce Cheung and Dr. Tim Chung are fully trained Palliative Medicine Doctors who provide these services for patients in need. These physicians work closely with the Central and Central West Community Care Organizations, who follow patients regularly at home in the Rexdale area of Etobicoke. Referrals for this service can be provided by the Primary Care Physician who is currently managing the patient or the supervisor from the Community Care Access Team (CCAC)
