Finding a Family Doctor in the Comox Valley

  • Finding a Family Doctor in the Comox Valley

    Residents of the Comox Valley have several ways of finding a Family Doctor:

    • Visit the Pathways Medical Care Directory page. If any physicians are accepting new patients at this time, they will be listed under the title “I need care and do not have a doctor”.
    • Phone clinics in the Valley asking if they have space for new patients. The Division website has a list of family practice clinics in our community.
    • Self-refer to the Division using either of the forms below. We will try our best to match you with a Family Doctor. If there is limited capacity, you may be placed on a waitlist until a Family Doctor is available.
