The DivisionsBC Medical Clinic is now offering COVID-19 testing for those exhibiting symptoms. For more information and to request an appointment, please click here.
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 have created a safe environment if you need to be seen in the clinic for an exam.
