We are proud to announce that Fynn Wood is the recipient of the 2022 Sunshine Award.
"Fynn has been a ray of sunshine at Southwood Medical. He has always gone the extra mile to bring a smile to not only patients but staff and physicians as well. He is always there when you are going through something, lending a head to be scratched, a belly to be rubbed or offer a quick game of tug to bring the smile back to your face. Fynn makes an excellent greeter and is superb at escorting patients and physicians to exam rooms. He is so inspirational he has patients stop by the office just to say "Hi" or to give a treat. He brings a smile to those who notice him when they pass by the office and always reminds you of the importance of getting your daily dose of Vitamin D"
Congratulations Fynn, we are so proud of you!

We are not accepting any new patients.
We recognize that finding a physician in the Comox Valley is a difficult undertaking. To help ease this task the Comox Valley Division of Family practice has launched a waiting list. You can register online and will be contacted directly when a physician in the valley is accepting new patients.

We strongly encourage all our patients to book a flu shot appointment through their pharmacy.
We are not able to hold a "Flu Clinic" nor book appointments for only a flu shot due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will have limited flu vaccine available for those patients we book an in person visit for due to their other medical conditions.
Regular scheduled appointments will be conducted over the phone until further notice. This allows us to significantly increase the safety for patients, physician and staff that work within our health care system. Zoom video appointments are available upon request.
If you have questions about telemedicine you can learn more at https://bccfp.bc.ca/myfamilydoctorcares/ or by contacting our office.
