Welcome to Dawson Medical Clinic the new state of the art medical clinic in the Burnaby-Gilmore area.


We are proud to introduce the newest addition to our medical team: Dr. Valerie Imperial.

Dr. Valerie Imperial completed her Medical Degree at the University of British Columbia and her Family Medicine Residency at the Jewish General Hospital at McGill University. She then went on to live and work in Houston, Texas for 8 yrs. Employed through the Baylor College of Medicine, she worked at Casa de Amigos Community Health Centre for 7 years where she took care of Houston's marginalized community - the undocumented and the homeless. This gave her the opportunity to practice her Spanish, run diabetes group visits, work in the Houston public health units, in addition to teaching medical students from Baylor College of Medicine. Realizing that there is more to helping patients than writing prescriptions, she started a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona under the supervision of Dr Andrew Weil and Dr Tierona Low Dog. She returned to her hometown of Burnaby, British Columbia in July 2015 and joined Dawson Medical Clinic as a family physician. She also works at the refugee clinics part time. On her off days she keeps very busy with her husband and 2 energetic boys rediscovering the cuisine and activities the west coast has to offer.

We are lucky to have her on our team.

Please call us at (604) 563-6622 to book your appointment.

Dawson Medical Clinic is a boutique health care centre that conveniently and efficiently combines a walk-in clinic, a family practice, and a hub for specialists and medical support service providers.
