PATIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A VALID & CURRENT BC HEALTH CARD

Please note that physicians at this clinic do not prescribe narcotic medication to new patients until the appropriateness is determined.

Patients are required to complete this
Comprehensive Medical Questionnaire. Please note that you have to download and save the form on your computer (under the name of the person applying) as it will not save online or you can print the form and complete it.

Completed forms can be e-mailed to
newpatients@wsmed.ca or faxed to 250 - 768 - 6907 or returned to the clinic in person at 103 - 1135 Stevens Road, West Kelowna, BC.

PLEASE NOTE THAT COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING THE CMQ FORM DOES NOT MAKE YOU A PATIENT AT THIS CLINIC, THIS ONLY OCCURS AFTER YOU HAVE MET WITH A FAMILY PHYSICIAN WHO AGREES TO TAKE OVER YOUR CARE. You will be advised at that time whether your medical records need to be transferred from your previous treating physician.

Transfer of your previous medical records (when required) is your responsibility and may be a pre-requisite for the family physician to fully accept your care.

You can indicate your physician of choice on the CMQ

Please be aware that to facilitate our professional ability to cross cover our patients you are unable switch family physicians within Westside Medical Associates.
