Infinity Health Centre: Meet Dr. Powar
Meet Dr. Simraaj Powar, a family physician and clinical procedures specialist at Infinity Health Centre in Bronte. Dr. Powar completed medical school in Ireland and her residency at Western University. She started at Infinity Health Centre in November 2020 and is now a go-to physician for Oakville residents. The Bronte BIA got a chance to speak with Dr. Powar to get to know her and the services available at Infinity Health Centre.
What services does Infinity Health Centre provide?
Dr. Suneel Sharma, Infinity Health Center walk-in physician, will take appointments for any member of the family. The clinic also has a chiropractor, Dr. Phil Wessel, for clients as well. Dr. Powar says, “We have both a male and female doctor at the clinic so patients can choose to see whoever they are more comfortable with. It’s a very welcoming and safe atmosphere.” They also offer a variety of appointment options such as virtual and phone call services, as well as the usual in-person appointments.
“The services we offer are unique,” says Dr. Powar. “We only book one week in advance for appointments, so clients are not waiting 4-5 weeks to be treated. We get people coming in from Cambridge and Toronto because waitlists elsewhere are so long, so we must be doing something right.”
Dr. Powar offers procedures by referrals from other clinics in the area because she is able to provide treatments faster and she has access to some treatments others may not have. For example, she is one of the only clinicians in Oakville that offers Nexplanon – a unique birth control that is injected into the arm. She also specializes in minor cosmetic procedures, such as mole removals and skin tags. Both she and Dr. Sharma specialize in cosmetics such as Botox.
What makes Infinity Health Centre special?
Infinity Health Centre opened in Bronte three years ago, and since then has been ranked in the top 3 best rated walk-in clinics in Oakville as well as the highest rated and most reviewed walk-in in Oakville on Google. Part of what makes this clinic so highly rated is the relationship the Infinity team has with its patients. Dr. Powar says “[Patients] love we run our walk-in clinic by appointment so you know what time you will be seen; this prevents long waits. We respect their time and they respect ours – its a two-way relationship. We know a lot of the people in Bronte and have a great relationship with the community.”
Dr. Powar and the Infinity Health Centre team want people in Oakville to know about the variety of services they offer. “As general practitioners, we can offer a lot of non-cosmetic services, such as ingrown toenail removal, that are covered by OHIP, making it very affordable for people,” she says.
