To arrange an appointment, please contact us first and we will determine the most appropriate type of appointment with you (virtual/online or in-person). If you have an in-person appointment, please remember to wear a mask before visiting the clinic.
In these exceptional times, EKNPLC hopes to comply with all public health guidelines in order to help minimize COVID-19 transmission and protect our community. If you are experiencing any symptoms, please stay home and self-isolate. Please call your NP (primary health care provider) for further advice. Thank you for your understanding.

The Omicron variant is currently spreading in our communities. Please continue to take precautions and get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Investigation into the risks of the Omicron variant is ongoing. Early evidence shows that the Omicron variant is more easily spread than previous variants and is also more resistant to vaccines. However, a third dose/booster is able to increase your protection. Stay updated by visiting the resources linked above.
