Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic & Family Practice

Please look after yourselves, stay healthy and enjoy all the wonderful and safe activities that our beautiful area has to offer. 
If you do need medical care, you can be confident that the entire Team at KLMC is here for you and your family.

We are not accepting Walk Ins at this time, but you are able to book a phone appointment instead.

We continue to be Open Monday through Saturday. Currently, our Front Door is Open.


We continue working hard to keep everyone safe – our Patients, Doctors and Staff! Please be respectful of this and be prepared, that in order for us to schedule to protect all patients and our staff, we will be asking you for your immunization status. 

Our current team includes Dr. Tom Newth, Dr. Margot Link and Dr. Dave Little, plus our amazing support staff, Shana, Nicole and Amber.

We will do our very best to book you a timely appointment, either as a phone consultation with one of our doctors, or if absolutely necessary, as an in-clinic visit. We are here for you! At anytime, during our regular hours of operation, you can book a phone appointment with one of our doctors for a consultation/assessment of your symptoms or medical condition. Phone into our regular phone line – 250-352-4666 to speak with one of our Medical Office Assistants and inform them that you would like to book a PHONE Appointment. PHONE Appointments are covered by BC’s Medical Services Plan, but you do need a valid Personal Healthcare Number, so please have this ready when you call. If you do not have Provincial Medical Coverage (i.e. you are from Quebec or out of country), there is a fee for your phone appointment with the doctor. This can be paid by Credit Card over the phone, so please have this ready as well.

Our doctors provide primary care, including everything from medical examinations (pap smears, full physicals, drivers, etc.) to minor surgical procedures (including suturing, and “lump” removal). The clinic offers a very convenient indoor mall location with free, unlimited parking, wheel chair access and two pharmacies.
