ABOUT US

Kingsfoil Medical Clinic is situated in downtown Kelowna on Bernard Avenue between Richter Street and Ethel Street. 

It is a family practice clinic with two physicians; Dr. Howard Davidson and Dr. Alexandra Thomson. Unfortunately both practices are full at this time. 

Parking is available in the rear of the building. 

A physician is on call on weekends for urgent medical questions and concerns by dialing Kelowna General Hospital switchboard and asking for the doctor on call for Dr. Thomson or Dr. Davidson (group ten).

Kelowna General Hospital switchboard phone number: (250) 862-4000.

Please call us as soon as possible if you are unable to make your appointment.

Please book an appointment for a prescription refill two weeks before your medication runs out. It is not our policy to renew prescriptions by phone.

8:30 AM - 5:30 PM Thursday and Friday.

 

Q. What is your appointment policy?

We are not a walk-in clinic.
Our physicians must work by appointment. Unfortunately, occasionally patient appointments do require longer time frames than scheduled. When this happens, your patience is appreciated. A sincere attempt is made to adhere to the clinic schedule as much as possible. The registration staff will advise you if the physician is significantly behind schedule. We ask that whenever possible, a return appointment for regular checkups be made before leaving the clinic.

 

Q. Are you accepting new patients?

No. In an effort to keep our waitimes down we can not accept new pateints. You can search here Find a Physician

 

Q.  How do I get a refill on my prescription?

We ask that prescription refills be completed during regular office visits. Calls for prescription refills will NOT be permitted. Physicians must have the benefit of reviewing you and your medical record before prescribing any medications.

 

Q.  What should I do if I'm ill?

If you are feeling ill, we ask that you call our office during regular office hours. You will be connected with our medical office assistant and instruct you on your options of care.

If you or someone under your care is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911. Please obtain copies of all tests taken and contact your physician as soon as possible to determine the best course of action.

 

Q.  What should I do if I miss my appointment?

We ask that you call our office during regular office hours, and explain that you have missed your appointment and discuss rescheduling the appointment. Please keep in mind that this will appear as a No Show appointment unless notification occurs within 2 hours prior to your appointment.
