Medical Director/Addiction Physician
Gerrit Prinsloo is a Canadian Family Physician. He is American and Canadian Board certified in Addiction Medicine and started his medical career 21 years ago as an Emergency Physician working in Africa, Europe and America. Moving to Canada in 2011 he transformed into a full service rural family physician flying himself by helicopter to underserved communities providing essential medical care. Seeing the devastation addiction was causing in these communities prompted him to do further studies in addiction medicine. Completing American Addiction Medicine Board Certification in 2016 he took on the role of Staff Physician in Addiction Medicine at St Paul’s hospital in Vancouver. During this time he completed a fellowship in addiction medicine research which got him interested in the role hormones play in the suffering of addicted patients. This led him to Certification in Regenerative and functional medicine.
