Given the increased COVID risk level of public health measures the Dingwall Medical Clinic would like to
advise their patients that the preferred method of appointments will now be via virtual/telephone appointments.
In person appointments will be approved for select issues.
Routine medical visits should be deferred.
Should the COVID risk level change the situation will be reassessed.

Dr. Donald Grant Dingwall was born in Glengary County near Lancaster Ontario on the sixth of October 1882. He graduated from Queens University Faculty of Medicine in 1906 and worked as a construction camp doctor for the Grand Trunk Railway, now the C.N.R., between Wabigoon and Quibell. In 1910 he did post graduate work in London, England and returned to Dryden in 1911 where he set up practice with Dr. Blair. They were joined by Dr. Morrison in later years. Dr. Bill Wigle joined Dr. Dingwall in the fall of 1949 in his offices above the Dryden Pharmacy.
