RVH adds neurology clinic

The Renfrew Victoria Hospital is once again expanding services as it introduces Neurologist Dr. Vanessa Doyle to its long list of outreach clinics.

“We are pleased to announce that Dr. Doyle will provide specialized care for our patients, and give her a warm welcome to our hospital,” comments Randy Penney, RVH’s President and CEO. “The demand for Neurology continues to grow in our catchment area and we are so thrilled that Dr. Dolye will be able to assist in responding to this need here at RVH.”

Dr. Doyle has recently completed her residency program in neurology at The Ottawa Hospital. She is a graduate of Memorial University in Newfoundland and obtained her Bachelor of Science with a concentration in biology from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia.

“I am excited to be joining RVH to provide outpatient neurologic care, as community medicine has always been so important to me coming from a rural area in Newfoundland”, says Dr. Doyle.

Dr. Doyle has a focus on headache, multiple sclerosis. She will begin with monthly clinics in the next few weeks with the potential to increase the frequency depending on the volume of consults. Appointments can be made to see her with a referral from a physician.

“RVH is very proud to continue to invest in our ambulatory care program,” states Penney, noting that improved access for patients and families across Renfrew County to specialized services is a high priority.

RVH currently offers 29 outpatient clinics. The ambulatory care program sees more than 30,000 emergency and clinic visits per year.
