Our Doctors
Sharonjit Bains, MD - List Closed

Dr Sharon was born in the U.K. where she received her medical degree from St. Georges, London University in 2007. She spent the first four years of her postgraduate training specializing in internal medicine before deciding that she would like to focus on Family Practice. She felt that this would allow her to build long term relationships with her patients and their families, as well as treating a variety of acute and chronic conditions. She has a keen interest in palliative medicine, geriatrics and women’s and children's health.

Dr Sharon relocated to Calgary in 2015 with her husband and 2 children. When she’s not running around after her girls she enjoys reading and keeping fit. She enjoys  practicing in the vibrant community of Cochrane.

Adam Nielsen, MD - List Closed

Dr. Nielsen was born and raised in Edmonton (don’t hold that or his choice of hockey teams against him). He was heavily involved in sports growing up and his first real introduction to the field of medicine was a serious leg injury sustained while playing hockey as a 14 year old. This piqued his interest and since that experience, he wanted to be a doctor.

 

He completed his Bachelor of Sciences degree at the University of Alberta. He attended the American University of Antigua for medical school and graduated Sigma Cum Laude. His clinical rotations took place in Brooklyn NY, Atlanta GA, Youngstown OH and Augusta GA. It was during that time that he developed an affinity for family medicine and he applied to family medicine residencies in both the USA and Canada. He was accepted to the University of Ottawa family medicine program where he was chief resident and voted most collegial and most outstanding resident. He really enjoys the variety of people and health concerns that family medicine lends itself to as well as the opportunity to form a close relationship with patients throughout their life cycle. After graduation, he worked as a family physician in Renfrew ON as their permanent locum, ultimately working for 13 local family doctors on a regular basis. He developed particular interests in care of the elderly and palliative medicine, working at the local nursing homes and retirement home as well as the local hospice. He always intended to move back to Alberta when it was time to start up his practice and it became pretty obvious early on that Cochrane would be the ideal spot.

 

When he’s not working, Adam and his wife try to keep up with their two young children. He still enjoys many sports and is looking forward to being close to the mountains and what they have to offer. He and his family are thrilled to be joining the community of Cochrane.

Dr. Tristan Pagan, MD- List Temporary Closed

Dr. Tristan Pagan was born and raised in British Columbia. He spent most of his youth focused on hockey which led him to the opportunity to play in Saskatchewan in high school.
