Dr. Jessi Dobyns

Family Doctor

I am originally from the United States, and came to Canada in 1999 to attend Lester Pearson United World College. I moved to Peterborough in 2001, and completed my B.A. (Honours) at Trent University in 2004. I then worked as a teaching assistant

in International Development Studies at Trent, and spent

four years working in small-scale farming and local food

security projects. I went on to McMaster Medical School,

graduating in 2011, and returned to Peterborough for Family

Medicine residency through Queens University, after which I did

additional training in obstetrics.


It was here in Peterborough that my interest in obstetrics turned into a love of comprehensive maternity care. I was inspired by Partners in Pregnancy's

wonderful model, and by the dedication and skill of the whole team. I'm

honoured to join this clinic, and share a passion for providing supportive

patient-centred care during this life-changing time for people. Having an inclusive

practice is an important value of mine- I am LGBTQ-friendly and want people from

all walks of life to feel welcomed and supported. I also work part-time in a family

medicine practice, and am busy at home with my young son, who grows even faster

than the weeds in my vegetable garden.
