Campbell River doctors urge residents not to delay health concerns or treatments.
Maintaining health through a family doctor’s clinic whether through telephone, virtual or in-person visits, ensures the best care because they know the medical history, family, and are connected to other health care providers and services locally & across the province.
Campbell River family doctors have safe ways to maintain residents’ healthcare through the Covid-19 pandemic and onwards.
Most concerns can be addressed through phone and/or virtually, and in-office appointments when needed.
Residents can call their clinic to ask what options are available.
Need a family doctor? A list of clinics taking new patients is compiled and posted on FETCH at the end of each month.
