Cook & Quadra Medical Clinic
C&Q Patients, including past patients of
Dr Campbell, Saunders, or Behroozi
Letter from Dr. Peter Vizsolyi
I am writing to inform you that the long- awaited sale of the Cook and Quadra Medical Clinic building has happened. Many of you have been seen by the Clinic since Drs. Campbell, Saunders, or Behroozi left practice or moved. We have been happy to support you with care over that time, but with the land sale the Clinic will be closing on June 1, 2022. As I have not been able to find a doctor to take over your care, I have arranged to move to the Burnside Medical Clinic at 101 Burnside Road West until at least October 2022, while we continue to look for a replacement physician. If we are not successful in finding someone by then, your medical records will remain at the Burnside Clinic, so that doctors at that clinic will have access to your records while seeing you.
Sometimes a family member’s physician will agree to take over your care, and this is often the best place to start. If you live in the Saanich Peninsula or Western Communities, you can also register on the Health Connect Registry to be on a wait list for a primary care provider. For those who live in the Victoria core the registry has not yet been activated, but watch the website as it will be available soon.
Other options for care beyond attending Burnside would include other Walk-In Clinics (ideally choose one and continue to attend the same clinic); Urgent Primary Care Centres; Island Sexual Health; the Vancouver Island Women’s Clinic; Telus Health MyCare or similar virtual provider. For those requiring pap smears, mammograms, FIT tests, or colonoscopies please be assured that the BC Cancer Agency will continue to send letters directly to your MSP listed address. For those that we identify as having higher care needs, our office will be looking for doctors who are able to provide you with medical care. If you are one of these patients and we have found a doctor, you will be contacted by us or by the accepting physician. Please do not call the office to ask if your care has been transferred as the phones will be very busy, but please let us know if you have found your own doctor by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further information regarding these changes, updated contact information, bookings and move dates will be posted in the coming days at our Cook & Quadra website
After June 1, 2022 your original medical records will be safely stored at the Burnside Medical Clinic and can be obtained at any time by contacting them as indicated at their Clinic website https://www.burnsideclinic.ca
I regret that I have not been able to share this news with every patient personally. For those of you who I do not see again and for those who I do, I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to take part with you in managing your health needs. I have enjoyed getting to know you and sharing conversations with you.
I wish you and your family the best of health in the future.
Peter T Vizsolyi, MD
