Covid 19 Vaccination Clinic
Due to supply interruptions, the scheduled clinics for second Covid-19 vaccination at our clinic have been cancelled. Please call the Manitoba Vaccine booking line at 1-844-626-8222 to receive your second vaccine. Those who received Astra-Zeneca vaccine will be eligible for the Moderna or Pfizer mRNA vaccine. The recommended interval between doses is 8-12 weeks, ideally before 16 weeks. Thank you for understanding and sorry for any inconvenience.
Stay at home and wash your hands!
New ways to do things
Protecting patients and staff.
In order to protect patients and staff, several changes have been happening throughout health care and our clinic has adopted some of these changes. Changes will continue to happen as the pandemic evolves in our province.
Stay at home
We have been mandated to provide as much care as possible via "virtual appointments". These can happen via telephone or Via Skype. Please be aware that internet based communications such as Skype or Face time, may no be secure. Prescriptions will be faxed to your pharmacy of choice. Labs will not be drawn for routine monitoring. You may have been notified than your non urgent specialist appointment or diagnostic imaging appointment has been postponed or modified.
In Short, variable
Office hours have been shortened in the last few weeks. Please be aware the office at this time is staffed every morning. We are currently arranging for staff to work from home. When this has been set up, we anticipate phones will again be answered from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. We ask for your patience.
Patient Centered Care
Our Electronic Medical Record helps make us more efficient as well as give our patients easier options to book appointments and contribute to their own medical record.
The clinic is very active in teaching the next generation of medical practitioners by welcoming medical students, family practice residents and nurse practitioner students to our facility.
Taking Care of You
Dr Michel Bruneau MD CCFP FCFP FPO
Family Physician in Oncology
Graduate of the University of Manitoba Medical School in 1994, Dr Bruneau practice consists of Family Practice, Nursing Home, Emergency Room, Inpatient and Oncology care. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, snowmobiling and martial arts.
Selena Papetti MD CCFP
Dr Selena Papetti is from St Boniface and graduated from St Boniface University before going to medical school at the University of Manitoba. She continued on to the bilingual family medicine residency training program at U of M. She had never been to Lac du Bonnet until she was in fourth year medical school and did an elective in town for two weeks. After graduation she moved to Seven Sisters Falls and set up her practice in Lac du Bonnet. Dr Papetti has taken an active role in teaching medical students as she believes that exposure to the community will lead to recruitment and retention of physicians to the area.
Dr Papetti lives with her partner Carson and her sons Mikko, Marku and daughter Saija as well as cat Sheldon in Seven Sisters Falls and volunteers with the local community club.

Lac du Bonnet Medical Group maintains close ties to the University of Manitoba, teaching Family Practice Residents, medical students and nurse practitioner students on a regular basis. Our goal is not only to enhance the practice but to help maintain and improve health care delivery in our communities for the future.
The Lac du Bonnet Medical Group is also thankful for the support of not only our patients but the support of The RM and the Town of Lac du Bonnet.
Cody is our resident. He is currently training in Brandon. He is an avid outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman. He has spent a lot of time at his family cabin on the Lee River and has a return of service agreement with the community. Hopefully, we will be seeing more of Cody in the near future. Cody hopes to learn many things when he comes to Lac du Bonnet, and possibly become as good of an angler as Dr Bruneau. Apparently, on one September long weekend, he did.

Same day Appointments
We are proud to offer same day appointments for all our providers. We specifically set aside a certain number of appointments every day to be filled only on that day. These slots are intended for urgent problems. These appointments can be booked every morning, but please call early.
Unfortunately, we have to turn away some patients every day. We take missed appointments very seriously. If you miss an appointment and do not call in a timely manner, you may be charged for the appointment. Too many missed appointments may result in termination of the patient-physician relationship
Prescription refills require follow up appointments. These appointments are neccesary to ensure the medication is still required and safe to use. It is also a time to discuss other possible treatments as they become available over time.
By Appointment Only
Mon - Fri: 8:30am - 5pm
Sat and Sun: Closed
Sorry, the Lac Du Bonnet Medical Group is not accepting new patients at this time. We do not keep a wait list.
Questions relating to patient care submitted to the clinic email account may not be returned. Please phone or use the patient portal.
