We know there is a huge need for our community members who are looking for a new family doctor. We unfortunately don't have doctors taking new patients at the moment (hopefully soon!) but we have been able to expand our walk-in appointments for patients without a family doctor at Citrus. 

Available to be booked online at both locations on a pre-scheduled basis (in person appointments only).

For patients with a family doctor at Citrus, you continue to have access to 6 days a week of in person care for urgent issues/illnesses if your Citrus family doctor is unavailable.
