Q&A

-> Will the doctor be my doctor after the medical?

No. The physician you will see acts as a consultant for your occupational or immigration medical. You will need to receive your longitudinal primary care elsewhere 

-> Who sets the fees that are charged?

All Family Physician fees are set by Doctors of BC and BC Family Doctors 

-> Finding a Family Doctor 

BC is in the midst of a challenging primary care crisis. Finding a General Practitioner of Family Doctor is very difficult and Dr Martin cannot provide long term care. In Nanaimo there is a ministry funded Urgent and Primary care centre at Medical Arts Clinic
