The BC College of Family Physicians provides many services to family physicians. However, we are not directly involved with recruiting family physicians to a specific community or helping patients to find a doctor. If you are looking for a family doctor in your community, here are some suggestions:
- Visit the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia website to find a family doctor who is taking new patients.
- Ask your family or friends to introduce you to their own family doctor. Sometimes a doctor may take you on referral from an existing patient.
- If you are visiting another health care provider, such as a specialist, ask them if they know of any family doctors that are accepting patients.
- If you are visiting a walk-in clinic, ask the doctor if they would be willing to take you on as a patient.
