Dr. Pardeep Dhillion - Physician
Originally from India, I moved to the UK for Post-graduation training after completing my graduation in Medicine. Initially I completed my Basic specialty training in psychiatry from Charing Cross Training scheme in London. I decided then to retrain as a GP and practiced as General Practitioner in UK for 15 years. We migrated to Canada with my family in 2018 and have been working as GP in a Family Practice clinic in Pitt meadows as well as with Food for Soul Project Society, caring for patients who have significant level of adversity in their lives.
My interest in Addiction Medicine has deeper roots in my hometown in Punjab, India where I saw many of my relations and friends fighting with this chronic and debilitating condition, I have seen and experienced the devastating effects it can unleash on the patients and the people who care about them, how it takes away all sense of dignity and pride, leaving people with nothing but a desire to get their next fix, no matter what the price!
It is the far-reaching effects of Addiction, not only on the patients but their loved ones, and the wider community, and my desire to do what I can to make an impact, no matter how small, that drives me to practice in this field.
By working with Food for Soul project Society, I feel that I am part of the solution, and we are contributing positively and making an impact, no matter how small, in patient’s lives.
I am proud to be part of such a dynamic team which goes out of its way to help and is always looking for innovative ways to improve the service.
