Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic & Family Practice

Due to physician and staff shortages, we are unable to provide Same Day Walk In Services. Please phone us to book your appointment at 250-352-4666.

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do this by phone or email – cancel@nelsonwalkin.com

IMPORTANT: If you do not cancel your booked face to face or phone appointment within 4 hours of that appointment, you will be charged a NO SHOW fee!

We are Open Monday through Saturday. Our Front Door is Not Open to the Public or for Walk In Appointments.

Patients looking for a primary care provider should register on the Kootenay Boundary’s Health Connect Registry. This is a new region-wide service to help patients find a family practitioner. You can self-register at kbhcr.ca

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, Dr. Dave Little and RN Kelsey Neufeld, plus our amazing support staff – Nicole, Mhae and Kayla.

We will do our very best to book you a timely appointment, either as a phone consultation with one of our doctors, or as an in-clinic visit. 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 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.). The clinic offers a very convenient indoor mall location with free, unlimited parking, wheel chair access and two pharmacies.
