Clinic Update

Due to the growing number of Community cases in Drumheller, the Drumheller Associated Physicians will be going back to all appointments by phone calls only. If the Physician needs to bring you into the clinic they will arrange the in person appointment with you. The Walk In part of the clinic will continue to run but we will ask that you remain in your vehicles until it is your appointment time. The Physician in the Walk In will call you first for screening purposes and making sure they are handling each patient appropriately to their needs.
At this time we are working closely with Alberta Health and are following the proper COVID protocols. We will continually update our Website and Facebook page with any additional changes we need to make.

Update on Clinic Access during the COVID 19 Pandemic

The team at Drumheller Associated Physician wishes to extend the following information to the community regarding ongoing clinic access to care during the COVID pandemic:

As a result of increasing case numbers in our immediate and surrounding area, we are encouraging virtual care clinic practices whenever possible at this time. In the recent weeks we had been starting to open up care for more in person assessments, however as our area has seen more COVID cases we are wanting to ensure the clinic remains as safe as possible and utilized for essential care only. Your doctor is still available to touch base with you by phone or video visit, and if deemed necessary can and will still see you in clinic.

Thank you all for your understanding in this as we try to do our part to keep the clinic a safe access point.
