The Chatham-Kent Family Health Team said Dr. Benjamin Lau is joining the Chatham office location, and he’s taking new patients.
“We are pleased Dr. Lau decided to remain in Chatham-Kent following his residency training. Dr. Lau’s decision to remain in the community demonstrates the great benefit our local Family Medicine Residency Program has for the citizens of Chatham-Kent.” Laurie Nash, director of medical recruitment for the health team, said in a media release.
Lau grew up in Toronto, and attended McMaster University where he obtained a degree in Clinical Epidemiology. Following this, he attended medical school at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
He did his residency training with the Schulich School of Medicine, Western University in the Chatham-Kent program, at the Thamesview Family Health Team with Dr. Zeke Milkovic.
“The community has been very welcoming and I enjoyed doing my residency training here in Chatham. I am excited to begin my practice and continue working with a great group of colleagues,” said Lau.
