Physician Referral List: Canada

How are physicians chosen to be on this list?

The physicians on this list have indicated they are familiar with NTM lung disease and diagnostic and treatment statement/guidelines. Due to a general lack of physicians who are known to treat NTM patients, we accept physician referrals from patients or from the physicians themselves. Physicians are only added to the list with their express consent. There may be other qualified physicians in your area who are not on the list; however, this does not mean they are not knowledgeable or experienced at treating NTM lung disease. If you are a physician and would like to be added to the list, or would like to recommend a physician, email or print and fill out this form and return it per the instructions.


Patients in Alberta require a referral from their primary health care provider to see a specialist. These referrals can be written or verbal and may vary depending on the specialist or area; please contact the specialist's office for more information.
