I don’t believe a recommendation is much use now. It is more of a case of who has an opening for new patients.

You can fax using the following online fax programs.... or if you prefer another, google free fax

I use this one a lot https://faxzero.com/

or this one periodically http://www.bestfreefax.com/BFFSendFreeFax.php

save your pdf file to your computer, then attach the file where indicated. You do not need to fill in company or fax under the heading, "who is sending the fax? or "sender information" They are both free! They will both email you and send you a link to confirm you wish to send the fax. It will then send you another email to tell you it fax was sent successfully.... or not sent successfully (if you entered something wrong). It will take anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes or so to send you that confirmation email, so be patient!

Vintage View Medical has a new doctor joining their practice come August. Vintage View is located at Hwy. 97 / Elk Road - same mall as Best Western Plus Hotel.
Our clinic is happy to announce that Dr. Grace-Marie Lenton will join us in early August, after relocating from England. She will be eager to build her new practice here. New patients will be welcome.

Yup, I was about to post it. Vintage View is my clinic. Good people!

FYI, you don't have to wait till August to contact them, they're pre-signing people right now.

^^^I know - all that info for getting on the wait list for the new doctor is in the web site. Been a patient of Vintage View since it opened.

Looking for a family doctor

Post by Eyeswideopen »

`Anyone know of any doctors accepting new patients in Kelowna. I had a family doctor in West Kelowna but that was too far a drive and since I haven't been there in years they dropped me. The office there has other doctors that are accepting new patients but I am hoping to find something in Kelowna so I don't have to drive over an hour round trip.

I have been using walk in clinics for the past several years but a lot of them don't even want to talk to me now with covid and whatnot. For some things like ongoing health conditions and regular checks they strongly recommend a family doctor instead so they can track my status.

I applied on that site quite awhile ago. I am being told it is 3 to 6 months wait at a minimum and no guarantees. A quicker alternative is to find a doctor accepting new patients and fill out a form with them. Hence why I am here asking if anyone knows of any.

I know there's another thread about this somewhere - it should probably be pinned to the top . . .

It took me 3 months of knocking on doors in my area before I was accepted. I went back more than once, always polite and deferential. Eventually, my current doc (more like the admin) took my family on.
