Meet Dr. Annelies Noordman…
I was born and raised in The Netherlands and grew up on a little farm. Already as a young girl I knew I wanted to become a doctor. I studied medicine in Amsterdam and did my family medicine training in Groningen. For a few years I worked in different settings. I enjoyed getting to know my patients and their families.
In 2008 my husband and I moved to Grande Cache with our 8 month old son. I worked in this small community for 5 years. We were blessed with a daughter and another son. We liked living in a small community and spent lots of time outside. Working as a doctor in a remote area can be challenging, though, and that’s why we moved to Bragg Creek in 2013. Over the years we learned to downhill ski, cross country ski and mountain-bike. Hiking with our dog, sledding, working in the yard... our family always finds something to do outside that keeps us entertained.
After working in Calgary for a few years I’m moving on to Care in the Creek in Bragg Creek. I hope to be able to practice the way I have always done; caring for families, young and old, chronic and acute care, antenatal care, minor procedures and IUD’s. Looking after the physical and emotional health of my patients and having a good balance between work and private life, that’s what it is about for me.
I look forward to seeing you in Care In The Creek soon.
