Brockville – Brockville General Hospital (BGH) is pleased to welcome Dr. Nida Riaz to the organization. Officially joining BGH as a General Internal Medicine / Geriatrician on October 29, Dr. Riaz is now accepting physician referrals.
“Our community is fortunate to have Dr. Riaz and her skillset join the staff at BGH,” shared Dr. Robert Malone, Chief of Staff at BGH. “Her knowledge of Gerontology is a tremendous asset to our area’s aging population. As a result, she will also be supporting BGH’s Stroke Prevention Clinic in addition to her Internal Medicine practice.”
A graduate of McMaster University, Dr. Riaz attended the Cleveland Clinic Foundation for her Geriatric Medicine Fellowship. She completed her Internal Medicine residency at Medstar Union Memorial Hospital, a Georgetown-affiliated hospital.
“Choosing BGH was an obvious choice,” explains Dr. Riaz. “Leeds Grenville has a large aging population, and I believe these residents deserve a specialized care plan for their individual needs. To live their best lives, it is important to meet the needs of this population. This includes a variety of conditions, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia, falls prevention, or a combination. My goal is to help patients be independent for as long as possible.”
Joining the Hospital also means working with her husband, Dr. Maaz Kamal, a Hospitalist with BGH since 2016. “We have enjoyed this community and the beauty of the area. It’s the best of both worlds: a peaceful life, with close proximity to larger areas.”
Dr. Riaz is dual certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Royal College of Physician of Canada with added qualifications in Geriatric Medicine. She is also a member of American Geriatrics Society, American College of Physicians, American Medical Association, Medical Counsel of Canada and College of Physician and Surgeons of Ontario.
Physician referrals are now being accepted by fax at 613-345-8337.
