Welcome to Arbutus Family Medicine...

Happy January from Arbutus Family Medicine!

Please visit our new website for helpful information and links or to book your telephone appointment online:

A New Collaborative Health Record

We recently updated your health records into our new electronic medical record system, InputHealth- the system will allow you to engage better with your own health and allow us to communicate better with you. Please keep an eye out for an e-mail from us, to update all your demographic information, such as your address, cell phone number, emergency contact and preferred pharmacy.

Winter Office Hours

The office is currently open Monday - Thursday, from 8:00am-5:00pm. The phone lines are monitored from 8:30am-3:30pm with closure for lunch. Please note our office will be closed on February 15th for BC Family Day.

Flu Shots

We know it has been difficult for many to get your flu shots this year. If you still need a flu shot, please contact your local pharmacy or visit for additional sites and flu clinic locations.

COVID-19 Update

At this time, we have not received any Covid vaccines and do not know if they will be distributed by our clinic. For an estimate on when you may receive your vaccine, see the BC Government’s Immunization Plan. For questions about the vaccine, see the Government of BC’s webpage on Covid-19 vaccines or Island Health’s Covid-19 vaccine FAQs. Please continue to follow public safety guidelines, including physical distancing, frequent hand washing, limiting group gatherings, restricting nonessential travel, and wearing a mask.
