PINK Milestone NAME.png



My name is Dr Shafeena Premji!. I am a Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP) and family physician with a Fellowship in Women's Health based in Calgary Alberta. I have spent every moment of my career understanding and learning about the beauty and complexities of a woman's biology, the hormonal changes that accompany each reproductive stage (pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, post-partum, during breastfeeding, mid-life, peri-menopause and menopause) and applying my knowledge and experience to empower and support women during some of the most vulnerable transitions in their life.

I once thought I wanted to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist but life took me in an unexpected other direction. While completing my family medicine residency at Queen's University, I met my mentor and a menopause pioneer in Canada, Dr Elaine Jolly, in 2012. With Dr Jolly's incredible mentorship, she opened my eyes to a very under-represented area of women's health - Menopause! She was a true inspiration - a plethora of knowledge, kind, and compassionate with every patient she met in her menopause practice. She opened my eyes to a pathway in medicine that I had never explored before. Fast forward to 2024.... I have been offering menopausal care to women for over 10 years now!


Milestone represents a labour of love and a team of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals who truly care about helping you master the menopause transition and beyond. Not only do we individualize a menopause care plan based on shared and informed decision-making, we also look at you as a whole, we focus on preventative health care and consider your heart, breast and bone health.


What I bring to patients is over 10 years of expert experience:

  • I received and have maintained my Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP) since 2015

  • I sit on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Menopause Society since 2020 and amongst the top experts in Canada who are the leaders in research, education and knowledge translation in menopausal health in Canada

  • I sit on the Medical Advisory Board of the Menopause Foundation of Canada, a not-for-profit organization that launched in 2022 to create and raise awareness of the impact of menopause on women and society and to break the silence and stigma associated with menopause

  • I engage in live, online and print media appearances to help educate women across Canada about menopause - CBC The National, CBC Radio, The Dose Podcast with Dr Brian Goldman, Chatelaine Magazine, Yahoo Canada

  • I speak and educate Gynecologists, Family Physicians, and Allied Health Professionals across Canada through live conferences, online webinars, and accredited programs.


Regardless of age or stage of menopause, whether you are a health care provider or a woman looking to find evidence-based information to guide you, I welcome you to Milestone! There are many local and Canadian resources on the website that are continually being updated. Follow us on instagram, share your story, become the menopause guru amongst your group of friends, spread the message, and please contact us if you have any questions!


With gratitude and respect,
