Dr. Rachna Chari

Physician

Not accepting new patients

I completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree at the University of Western Ontario, with a focus on Health Promotion, before moving to Alberta for medical school at the University of Calgary. I then returned home to do my Family Medicine residency at the University of Toronto, followed by a fellowship in Low Risk Obstetrics. Since then, I have spent my time working in a variety of settings, and I am super excited to start a practice of my own at the Village Family Health Team.

My special interests in medicine include preventative care, pediatrics, adolescent medicine, sexual health, chronic disease management, palliative care, and obstetrics.  That being said, my main passion is to be able to provide comprehensive, long-term primary care to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Outside of medicine, I love to travel, read, bike, cook(and eat), play soccer, and continue to explore this fantastic city and everything it has to offer.
