A new family physician is now accepting new patients and is available to provide care to Red Deer and Central Alberta residents.  

Dr. Kamal Mustafa is working out of Easthill Medical Clinic in the city and will also be providing care in local continuing care facilities, and hospitalist and palliative care at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.  

“This is wonderful news for patients in both Red Deer and Central Alberta,” said Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Health and MLA for Red Deer-North. “The recruitment of physicians with the skill set of Dr. Kamal Mustafa to the community will help ensure timely access to services for people throughout the region.”  

Easthill Medical Clinic now has four physicians serving the community.  

“Red Deer has a growing healthcare sector and offers many opportunities for physicians to grow their careers,” said Mustafa. “The city also offers a balance of urban amenities and a more relaxed lifestyle compared to larger centres, which is appealing to physicians who are seeking a better work-life balance.”  

Mustafa previously practiced in Ontario and Saudi Arabia and received his medical education in Pakistan.  

In his leisure time, he enjoys watching sports, particularly cricket, playing table tennis, listening to Bollywood music, and watching movies.  

Alberta Health Services (AHS) continues to recruit physicians across the Central Zone to meet community needs.   

Individuals can call 403-343-0115 to arrange a meet-and-greet appointment.
