Important Information For Patients
While virtual appointments are still encouraged, patients can now request an in-person appointment if needed, provided they do not have COVID or Covid like symptoms.
If you are feeling unwell with any of the following symptoms: Headache, fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste and/or smell, muscle aches, fatigue, sore throat or runny nose please call us so we can make arrangements to see you while keeping everyone safe.
If you have been in contact with a positive case within the last 14 days, we ask that you let us know prior to any in-office visits so we can make appropriate arrangements
All in-office visits will require you to wear an approved medical/surgical face mask. We also ask that you come alone or with only one support person (if necessary) in order to limit the number of people in our office.
If you have symptoms and need to be tested for COVID please book online via the Interior Health website.
