Online Booking System Reminder
Updated Apr 25, 2022
We would like to remind you of the option to book online, which hopefully adds convenience and flexibility to you, while helping to improve the functionality of our clinic.
For the time being, only telehealth (phone or videoconferencing) visits are available for booking online. Because of the ongoing developments in the course of the pandemic, the requests for an in-person visit still need to be screened by the physician or, at the least, by one of the office assistants, over the phone. If you need to be seen in person, please call our front desk at 250-452-6742 to request a visit in the office.
