FAMILY HEALTH CARE / SPECIALIST CARE for Campbell River and Neighbouring Communities
COVID-19 Safety Plan: All appointments must be prebooked, please call 250-287-7441. To ensure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering timely access to virtual medical care through phone and video technologies. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit our office for a physical examination.
We’d like to ensure our patients that we strive to create a safe environment if you need to be seen for an exam. Wearing a mask is required upon entry to the clinic. For more details, please see our linked Safety Plan prior to your appointment to help keep yourself & you health care team safe.
If you are concerned about your symptoms, please stay home, and call the clinic to book a phone or video appointment with a doctor. You may also refer to the BC Online Self-Assessment Tool.
