We are five family physicians working in this clinic. The original group began working together in the Fall of 2006. Our clinic can be found on the third floor in the Gordon and Leslie Diamond Health Care Centre at 2775 Laurel Street, Vancouver. We are the only family physicians in this building and our clinic is known as the Westcoast Family Practice Centre.
The physicans in the clinic are Drs Grant Ayling, Laurie Bootsman, Art Harpur, Margo Sweeny and Andrew Gilmore.
