Effective immediately, physician services are currently available two days per week at the East Shore Community Health Centre with the recent departure of Dr. Lauren Galbraith.

Interior Health is working with the Kootenay-Boundary Division of Family Practice to recruit a primary care provider to join the existing two physicians at the clinic who currently serve the community. We regret the interruption of services to patients who formerly saw Dr. Lee until her retirement in the fall and then Dr. Galbraith.

To make an appointment, patients may call the East Shore Medical Clinic, Crawford Bay at 250-227-9006.

MAINSTREET NOTICE: There will be only two doctor days per week at the East Shore Health Clinic, effective immediately. A third doctor day was published in the March paper due to miscommunication, but please know that there will only be doctor days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, indefinitely, unless another doctor takes the third day. Dr Piver will be covering Tuesdays and Dr Moulson will be covering Wednesdays as normal.

Call the clinic (250-227-9006) to check for changes and be aware that there may be longer waits to see a doctor than normal.
