ATTENTION WALK-IN CLINIC PATIENTS
As of March 31, 2022 the Walk-In Clinic will be reducing its hours and only available Saturday and Sunday from 10 – 2 on a first come first serve basis by physically “walking in” to the office. We understand this will limit appointment availability to walk-in patients but it is all we are able to offer.
Despite ongoing efforts to sustain the walk-in clinic we regret having to make this decision. Our walk-in clinic has solely serviced an extremely large geographical area for over 10 years but without support from the healthcare community, division of BC and the government we do not have the ability to service the growing demand of walk-in patients on top of our own family practices.
Please voice any concerns you may have to the government.

- Masks are still mandatory at the office
