Dr. Bob Wilson discusses preventative care with a patient.

Lopez Island Medical Clinic has been providing first-class healthcare since 1974. Specializing in family practice and preventive medicine, Dr. Bob Wilson and Nurse Practitioner Christine Burnell lead an outstanding team of caring professionals who deliver efficient, courteous, high-quality medical care to the Lopez Island community and its visitors.

Our clinic couldn't exist without the financial support of this community. The Lopez Island Medical Clinic was not only built, equipped, and maintained entirely with islanders' donations, today it is that same friends-and-neighbors' funding that keeps our clinic open and thriving. The CWMA is the group of local volunteers who organize and manage those fundraising efforts.
