In the coming months, there will be longer wait times to book a regular office appointment. To avoid running out of your regular medications and interrupting your treatment, we ask for your cooperation in keeping track of your prescriptions.
Please book an office appointment 6 – 8 weeks before you need to renew your prescriptions.
Keep track on the calendar when the Pharmacist tells you the status of your refills.
Plan ahead for holidays – check with the Pharmacist for the availability of refills and book an office appointment if necessary.
Automated Appointment Reminder Calls
The Omineca Medical Clinic is re-launching our appointment reminder phone call system after addressing some technical difficulties we were having with the program in February 2015. Patients with booked appointments will be receiving a reminder phone call one day prior to an appointment. Patients who answer the call will have the option of confirming or cancelling an appointment. The automated phone calls will be going out on two new outbound phone lines installed in our clinic. These lines will not allow incoming phone calls. Your home call display will show (250) 567– 9287 or (250) 567-5285. We are excited to offer this new service to our patients and expect to reduce the number of missed appointments.

Advanced Care Planning - It's All About You!!
Expressing your wishes and creating your care plan will ensure that when the time comes you will be well cared for in the manner you desire and your loved ones will be spared from having to make difficult decisions on your behalf.
The Physicians at Omineca Medical Clinic are focussing attention on the importance of creating advanced care plans. We will be using a small workbook, “Your Conversation Starter Kit” to help guide you through the steps of identifying what is important to you, what do you value, and how to talk to your Doctor as you create your care plan. The workbook also provides suggestions and ideas for “starting the conversation” with loved ones or other special people in your life.
