NP. Lisa Smyth

Nurse Practitioner

Not accepting new patients

Born and raised in the greater Toronto area, I obtained my Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Toronto. I worked for 2 years in busy Toronto Emergency Departments before transitioning to Primary Care. For 3 years,  I worked as a Registered Nurse at Village Family Health Team while concurrently completing my Masters of Nursing/Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate at Ryerson University. I am excited to expand my scope of practice in assuming the Nurse Practitioner role at Village Family Health Team.

I believe in a holistic approach to patient care, where the patient and all of their life circumstances are considered in developing a mutually agreed upon plan of care. I have a strong interest in health promotion, health education, preventative care and empowering patients to take an active role in their health.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, cycling, reading and discovering new restaurants and activities in the city.
