Welcome to the Squamish Medical Clinic

Proudly providing medical services to the people of Squamish since 1989

COVID-19

July 6, 2020
We are still offering physician appointments!
To avoid any spread of COVID we are trying to triage as many appointments as possible to scheduled phone or video appointments.
If needed we are still offering scheduled in-office appointments.
Please call the office to schedule an appointment (phone, video or in-office).

When you have an in-office appointment you MUST wear some sort of material that will cover your mouth and nose such as a mask, scarf, sheet, etc. BEFORE entering the building. We are selling masks hand made by Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary volunteers for $10 with 100% of proceeds going to SGH. If you arrive at the clinic without protection you will need to re-schedule your appointment. Under NO circumstances will we be providing masks. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time

HOURS OF OPERATION

We are open for appointments 0900 to 1630h Monday to Friday.
We are closed all statutory holidays.
Some of our physicians work early morning evening clinics — please call for details.

As of July 6, 2020, we are NOT accepting new patients.
