Meet our Doctors
Dr. Darryl Ableman
My name is Darryl Ableman. I have practiced in the Tri-Cities and Burnaby over the past 25 years. I am a graduate of the University of Witwatersrand ,Johannesburg ,South Africa. After graduation in 1984 I immigrated to Canada. To date I have performed over 4200 deliveries. I have operated a clinic called Able Care Medical Clinic that I opened in 1993 Able Care Medical Clinic . It has grown into a large seven doctor practice. I continue to serve the community at this clinic and I work six days a week. I also deliver approximately 150 babies each year at Royal Columbian Hospital. These past couple years has shown some exciting changes with the introduction of electronic medical records to our clinic. Even more exciting in the last couple weeks is the ability to begin online bookings, rather than waiting on telephone hold . What is most exciting is my new project in setting up a new clinic in Burke Mountain. Foothills Medical Clinic is set to open on April 7, 2015 and operate 7 days a week We will accept new patients and hope to see walk-in patients as well

Dr. Surinder Kaur Ubhi
I graduated in Medicine in India and the UK. I did post graduate work in a large hospital in the UK including Obstetrics, Pediatrics and Internal Medicine. I migrated to Saskatoon with my husband, who is a family physician too. I worked in 3 large teaching hospitals in Saskatoon, where I practiced obstetrics for several years. I have always been working in group practices in Saskatoon and Calgary where I had a large family practice. I enjoy all aspects of family practice. My interest is also in Women’s health, including PAP test, IUDs, Prenatal Care and Prevention health for all patients. I have joined the congenial and very experienced family practice group at Foothills Medical Clinic.
Dr. Natalia Konovalova
I was born and raised in Kyrgyz Republic, where I acquired my medical degree. Upon completion of my residency in Dermatology and Sexually Transmitted Diseases, I joined a twenty-doctor out-patient clinic and worked in close collaboration with family practitioners.
It was a new and exciting era for Kyrgyzstan’s medicine healthcare system when family physicians became the front-line care providers; this experience improved my understanding of Family medicine.
When my family and I immigrated to Canada I decided to go through the examination for Certification of The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada to become a family doctor although many people tried to discourage me and recommended to find another carreer.
After taking all of the required exams I was accepted to the Family Medicine Residency at the UBC/St. Paul Hospital, which I graduated in 2013.
My passion is a preventive medicine with an ultimate goal to develop a healthy life style everyone involved to encourage mutually rewarding, long-lasting relationships.
I believe my medical background, and enthusiasm will make an excellent avenue for me to contribute to the development of Foothills Medical Clinic which will feel like a second home to many.
