Family Practice


Family Practice News Update!

Dr Rob Cook will join our KLMC Team mid September!

In the meantime, our current team will continue with the ongoing care of all patients, those currently registered with us as family practice patients, and all walk in and same day appointments.  With our continuing efforts to recruit permanent family practice practitioners, we hope to be able to accept more patients in the very near future.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Thank you for your patience and continued support of our efforts at Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic.

Our goal is to be able to see every patient that comes through our doors 7 days a week, 362 days a year.

Important to Remember: It you have your own Family Doctor outside of our clinic, you will be seen as a Walk In Patient, and you will be booked in for a 10 minute appointment. Continuity of your healthcare should be provided by your own doctor and not at as a Walk In patient.

  • SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS: We book same day appointments at 10 minutes per appointment. If you choose to see a specific doctor, remember that the wait could be longer AND you may require an additional Longer Appointment booked on a different day.
  • LONGER APPOINTMENTS: Ask our staff when YOUR doctor is taking scheduled appointments. Longer appointments do need to be scheduled in advance by our staff.
