Due to ongoing developments with COVID-19 we regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to close our walk in. This will help us keep staff and physicians healthy.
Regular scheduled appointments will be conducted over the phone until further. This will allow us to significantly increase safety for everyone who needs to access or works in our health care system. With the increase in phone volume we acknowledge that contacting the office maybe difficult. The best time to call is between 8:30am - 10:00am. Please have patients and continue trying, as all calls that get through will be answered between 8:30am - Noon.
We would like to also take this opportunity to stress the importance of self isolating if you are experiencing any flu like symptoms and to remind everyone to practice social distancing.
If you have questions about telemedicine you can learn more at https://bccfp.bc.ca/myfamilydoctorcares/ or by contacting our office.
We thank you in advance for your patience, flexibility and co-operation during this difficult time.
