You only need a referral from your family doctor.

To schedule an appointment, your family doctor can fill out the referral form and fax it to 604.416.3249. Once the referral is received, our staff will contact you to book an appointment.

Important notes:

  1. You must have a referral from your family doctor and valid BC MSP (we do not see private consults).
  2. The IBD Centre of BC only sees patients with known or suspected IBD.
