Dr. Elkink grew up on a ranch in Saskatchewan, and moved to Cochrane in 2017. She went to medical school in Edmonton and rural residency through the University of Calgary. She loves travelling (Paris is her favorite), golfing, and spending time with her family and friends.
Dr. Torrie was born and raised in Calgary, and has been practicing family medicine in Cochrane since she finished her training. She loves spending time outdoors, cycling, running, and skiing, along with her husband and three kids.
Dr. Kerri Johnstone and Dr. Brian Dembinski were born and raised in Alberta. They completed their medical training at the University of Alberta, which is also where they met and were married. Since they finished their Family Medicine training in 2010, they have been working in Red Deer. They are excited to be starting a new adventure with their three children in Cochrane.
Dr. Kerri Johnstone and Dr. Brian Dembinski share a practice and tend to have office hours on alternating days. It is generally best to see one of them for regular, ongoing medical care. But as a patient of one, you are welcome to book appointments with the other as well, particularly for urgent matters. For the purpose of their waitlist, please indicate whether you'd prefer Dr. Johnstone, or Dr. Dembinski, or no preference, and we will do our best to accommodate this as we book our initial Meet and Greet Appointments.
