I am pleased to introduce myself as a new physician at the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team. My name is Dr. Sylvia Almeida, and I am starting a new practice in Almonte.

I am originally from Brazil, where I obtained my medical degree, first post-graduating training and practiced as an independent physician for many years. In December 2017, I immigrated to Canada with my family.

After following the Canadian medical license process and finishing my second post-graduating training in Canada, I am excited to welcome you to my practice.

I am proud to be one of the four family doctors in our Family Medicine Obstetrics program, which provide low-risk obstetrical care for women in the community. Within this program, we strive to provide personalized care to women and their families throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum period.
