In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, West Coast Family Medical Clinic has introduced a number of temporary changes in order to try and help slow the spread of COVID-19. We will be attempting to initially assess all patients virtually (by video or phone). These can be booked online or by calling our office. Prescriptions, lab work, and other investigations will be arranged as appropriate. If your doctor feels that you need to be assessed in person, an in-person follow-up appointment will be arranged. You can check in for your virtual appointment at the scheduled time by going to https://wcfmc.doxy.me/
PLEASE DO NOT PRESENT TO OUR CLINIC IN PERSON WITHOUT A CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT!
Our office hours have been reduced to Monday-Friday 7:30am-4:30pm. We will be closed Saturday-Sunday.
