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.

Walk Ins are still welcome, but currently, by phone ahead appointments only.

We continue to be Open Monday through Saturday, but our front door will stay locked for now.
Please DO NOT expect an Appointment without phoning us first at 250-352-4666. Our switchboard is busy, so please leave a message on our Voice Mail and we will return your call. 

We continue working hard to keep everyone safe – our Patients, Doctors and Staff! Please be respectful of this! For ALL IN CLINIC APPOINTMENTS,  YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK & SANITIZE YOUR HANDS.

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

Dr Newson will be leaving us as of Friday, May 7 and will return to his previous practice at Nelson Medical Associates. His patients should phone there to book future appointments and discuss any concerns regarding these changes with him.

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.
