Station Square Medical Walkin clinic, close to Metrotown Sky Train station, Bus Loop, and largest complex of malls in western Canada

Medical Doctors in General Practice / Family Doctors-Physicians / Walk-In Clinics

Finding a "family doctor" can be an adventure, like finding a good lawyer, or mechanic or school - you are looking for a longer term working relationship that you can depend and trust.

Walk-In Clinics are an increasingly popular option for many people in terms of extended hours of operation and ease of access.


The large photo above is the Station Square Medical Clinic located in the Station Square Mall, its location is central to a host of conveniences, including a new REXALL pharmacy next door to the clinic.  Note, this was perhaps the very first Walk In Medical Clinic in this whole area of Metro Vancouver and continues to serve the community after 18 years of service in this location.
