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.

Powell River is a coastal city on the Sunshine Coast, about 150km from Vancouver. We have a beautiful community offering outstanding outdoor activities including many beaches, lakes, and hiking trails. Powell River is also known for its internationally acclaimed Academy of Music and outstanding Cultural and recreational facilities. There are excellent Schools in the Community including a Vancouver Island University Campus offering a full range of Programs reflecting the unique needs of the region.

Powell River, even though a smaller community, has very good access to local Specialists, including two Surgeons, two Internists and one Obstetrician. The Powell River Hospital is well-equipped with 33 beds and has recently added a CAT scanner to the radiology department.

The Medical Clinic itself is located only minutes away from the Hospital. We are a 10 Physician clinic and are supported by an amazing and friendly staff. Being part of a Clinic our size has many advantages, such as only having to do weekend call every 8 weeks. It also gives you flexibility in your practice as we are open Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, with staff available at all times during these hours.
