Practice Setting

  • Due to a physician shortage in British Columbia, there are about 35,000 unattached patients in Kelowna who rely on walk-in clinics to provide their primary care. Many of these patients are registered at our clinic.
  • Patients we see in the walk-in present with anything from viral infections, to acute lacerations and everything in between. Contraceptive advice, pregnancy testing, smoking cessation, Nebulizer treatments and Drivers medical are common services we provide.
  • In addition to doing walk-in shifts, we are happy for our physicians to develop their own practice, seeing patients with booked appointments. During booked shifts physicians provide all primary care services including periodic age appropriate health exams and chronic disease management. Doctors do minor surgical procedures including lesion removals.
  • Kelowna General Hospital is a large 700 bed facility that offers tertiary care to the Okanagan health region. It is located nearby and has a very good emergency department to which we may send patients with more acute, complex and urgent medical needs. Hospitalists look after patients in the acute care but there are none in the extended or hospice care facilities. Our doctors are encouraged to care for their own patients in these facilities. We do not provide obstetrical services at our clinic but refer pregnant patients to other family physicians who provide such care. Specialists are available for consultation 24/7 for most specialties.
  • The amount of patients that can be seen throughout the walk-in shifts varies.  With having 2 walk in shifts per day, it allows us to avoid reaching our maximum amount of patients for the day, allowing us to have continuity of patient care.
  • Morning walk in shifts are 9 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Afternoon walk in shifts extend the walk-in to 4:00 p.m. We are currently closed on weekends.
