Pediatrician coming to Clearwater shortly

Dr. Van Leeve has chosen to provide services out of the Yellowhead Community Services

Editor, The Times:

I am pleased to inform the community that Kamloops-based pediatrician Dr. Karenza Van Leeve will begin providing clinics in Clearwater three to four times a year.  She has scheduled her first dates to provide services in the community for Sept. 26 and 27.

At this time, Dr. Van Leeve has chosen to provide services out of the Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) facility at 612 Park Drive. There is a large furnished room that will be used for her services that provides a welcoming, home-like setting for patients and their families.

If you are a parent of a child or youth from birth to 18 years old who has concerns about your child’s health and development, including any questions about potential assessments for diagnoses of any kind, please visit the local medical center and request a referral to Dr. Van Leeve for a pediatric assessment.

If your child is already being followed by a pediatrician in Kamloops but the travel aspect is difficult for you to maintain, please speak to the physician staff at the medical centre about a re-referral to meet your needs. It is our goal to minimize the geographic and socioeconomic barriers for families by removing the need to travel to Kamloops to have their children be seen and followed by a pediatrician.

Thank you for your attention to this new service and we hope it is a welcomed and utilized health care service in our community for years to come.
