About Us

The Thompson Rivers Medical Clinic has been established with the intention of providing the highest standard of Family Centered Medical Care with the optimization of lifestyle for physicians, nurses and office staff. The Clinic is a sixty year old home in downtown Kamloops that has been renovated into a modern medical office. The Clinic has two floors with a waiting room on each level and full wheelchair access. There are four examining rooms upstairs and three downstairs. We have full electronic medical records. The Clinic is now home to four physicians with our fourth and final physician, Dr. Thomasse, having joined in August 2013. Dr. Gorman and Dr. Pretorius, at present, occupy the upper level with Dr. Laupland and Dr. Thomasse being downstairs. Shared ideals of client care, ethical practice and physician health are valued.  We believe in punctuality but balance this by trying to give clients the attention they need in a timely manner. Sometimes these aims are mutually exclusive. Evidenced based compassionate care provided promptly and efficiently is our aim. We are involved in the Southern Medical Progam, an offshoot of the University of British Columbia, and the new Family Practice Residency Program which started in July 2014. We therefore have Family Practice Residents on a regular basis and occasionally Medical Students. The Family Practice Residents in the Clinic now are: Dr. Julius Sagala, Dr. Jennifer Evancio and Dr. Dustin Janz.
