Almonte Team

Providing the highest possible quality of care for our patients

Meet our Team

Our team includes family physicians and several interdisciplinary health providers, including a psychiatrist, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, registered nurses, registered practical nurses, psychotherapists, and dietitian.

Welcome Dr. Vandenbrink!

Dr. Darrell Vandenbrink joined our team in August this year. He has taken over from Dr. Susie Quackenbush, who retired after many years of dedicated service to her patients and the community of Almonte.

Dr. Vandenbrink trained at the University of Ottawa and Queen’s University. Both during his residency and since completing his training Dr. Vandenbrink spent time at the OVFHT. We are excited to have him as a part of our team.

On behalf of the entire Ottawa Valley Family Health Team, we’d like to welcome Dr. Darrell Vandenbrink!
