We are a virtual clinic for the convenience of busy people.

ABOUT US

We are a health clinic in downtown Calgary that helps you with more than day-to-day Family Medicine needs. Virtual appointments suit busy people who want to save time.

Founded by Dr. Natasha Iyer, MD, this virtual clinic looks after the day-to-day needs of patients who have trouble finding a family doctor, at a time of severe shortage of family doctors in Calgary.

These visits are covered by your Alberta Health Care.

They provide treatments that any other family doctor’s office provides:

  • Medication refills

  • Specialist referrals

  • General health issues that would take you to your family doctor or walk-in clinic.
     

A virtual clinic is best suited for people who have low to medium health needs. Complex medical patients are best suited to a clinic with a more comprehensive in person coverage.

**Due to this being a virtual clinic with limited availability, we cannot serve the following at this time

  • Pediatric patients (children under 16 years old)

  • Elderly patients with complex medical needs

  • Pregnant patients
     

* Wellness consultations, bio-identical hormone treatments, and Functional Medicine are not covered by your Alberta Health Care. and are available separately from this clinic.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Health is not having no sickness. True health is enjoying vitality. Avoiding disease. Feeling your best.

'Health is your  greatest Wealth'

We do not believe that medication is the only solution. It is prescribed when you need it.

We do not believe that you need a pill for every ill.

We believe that you are in charge of your own health. Living a healthy lifestyle is key. For each person, this looks different.

 

These are the basics for good health:

* Being active daily.

* Eating well for your health.

* Taking good quality supplements 

* Sleep and meditation.

* Stress management 

Our focus is on your total health.While your traditional medical needs are met through this clinic and service, restoring and improving health takes more than a traditional approach.

We are aligned with a team of experts who understand the complexity of what it takes to be truly healthy.
