Beginning August 1, 2013 Dr Keith Graham will be moving his medical practice to Heriot Bay. Patients wishing to transfer their medical files from our clinic to his new location may sign consent forms at our front desk.

The breaking news at Quadra Island Medical is – after months of hard work – the allocation of a Nurse Practitioner who will provide additional medical care to the island. I want to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who helped make this appointment possible: Enid O'Hara, Manager of Rural Services with Vancouver Island Health Authority; and islanders Betty Doak, Dr Mary Macintosh, Regional Director Jim Abram, and Linda Elias. Watch this space for details about the Nurse Practitioner's arrival and the new services that will soon be available.

I also want to let islanders know that I am accepting new patients. To make an appointment please call the clinic at 250-285-3540. The office is open at 9:30 every morning Monday through Saturday.

This summer, as in many years past, Dr Mary Boegel will be covering my practice while I'm on holiday with my family. These dates are July 15th to 27th and August 12th to 17th.

Quadra Island Medical Clinic is open six days a week: Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 5pm, and Saturday from 9:30am to 2pm. Walk-in laboratory hours are 7am to 10am every Wednesday and Friday morning.

If you have any questions please call the clinic during office hours. I look forward to sharing more news with you as the summer progresses!
