An Important Notice From Dr. Kalinowski
There will be some changes to Dr. Kalinowski’s schedule, effective June 21, 2021.
I am writing to inform you that I have made the difficult decision to permanently move my medical practice to Downtown Vancouver. My last day of practice in Imperial Medical Clinic will be November 1st, 2021.
Despite my best efforts, working out of more than one clinic became increasingly unsustainable. Moving forward I plan to practice out of one location only, providing a single point of care throughout the entire week.
Your medical records/chart will automatically be transferred to my new downtown office.
For those who would like me to continue to care for them, I will be more than happy to continue your care at my new office location. I understand the distance may be inconvenient and not desirable; many may decide to remain locally.
I will continue to care for you in Burnaby until November 1st, 2021 to provide you adequate time to find another medical practitioner if you decide to leave my care.
The new office downtown office is:
SKY MEDICAL CLINIC
305-1160 Burrard Street
Vancouver BC V6Z 2E8
T: 604 681 8735; F: 604 608 8740
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Imperial Medical Clinic for further information.
Thank you for allowing me to care for you over the last 2.5 years, it has been a privilege and a honor.
DR. M KALINOWSKI
