The Okanagan Women's Clinic is still running at full capacity but reflecting the Covid restrictions of Hillside Medical downstairs. 

All patients are screened at the front desk downstairs. Patients must have a medical grade mask on, temperature taken and hands sanitized before they are sent up. 

Please note only one or two patients are allowed in the office at a time and there is no waiting room whatsoever.

We ask that patients arrive right on the time for their appointment. If you are early, please wait in your vehicle until it is time for your scheduled appointment.  Please check in downstairs and our staff will let us know when you have arrived and bring you up.

All consults and follow-ups are being done via video chat or by phone. Patients who require physical insertions, paps, string checks and any other follow-ups that require being seen in person will be the only ones coming into the office. Please note these are all on a "booked" basis, there are no drop ins.

Hours are limited, in office procedures are being held on Monday to Thursday. T
