What we are doing to keep our Patients safe?

Our Commitment to Our Patients During the Covid Pandemic Our clinic remains open and committed to serving our patients during this challenging time. To protect all of our patients, we are offering phone appointments and then in person visits when necessary. Please call or email us to set up a phone appointment with your doctor. If your concerns require a physical exam, your doctor will discuss that with you on the phone and determine the best way to do this (virtual or in-person). If you are a walk-in patient without a family doctor at our clinic, you may also call or email to set up a phone appointment with our walk-in physician. Please do not walk-in to the clinic without an appointment during this pandemic so that we can keep all of our vulnerable patients safe. If you have any cough or cold symptoms, fever, international travel or contact with someone sick within the last 14 days, please stay home and call us if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for doing your part in keeping our community healthy! We are here to help you through this!

Dedication to providing care.

Dear Neighborhood Families

Marlborough Medical Clinic is very pleased to announce addition of two new Physicians to our Team.


Dr. Ewaen Igbinidu, MD (Dr. IG)

Dr. IG completed his Family Medicine Training from Memorial University of New Foundland. After practicing in New Foundland for few years, he has come to Calgary to join his family. He has joined Marlborough Medical Clinic and wishes to build a Full scope Family Medicine Practice. He is inviting all the Neighborhood families seeking services of a Family Physician to consider joining his Practice. He is available for Meet and Greet Appointments at the clinic or Phone consults over the phone. He would also see patients for same day walk-in concerns.


Dr. Hong Tran, MBBS, CCFP

Having originally studied in Australia for my undergraduate medical degree, Dr. Hong Tran pursued rural family medicine training in Saskatchewan. This provided an opportunity to obtain a well-rounded experience in providing care in different scenarios. Beyond this, Dr. Hong Tran practiced independently in rural Saskatchewan for a further two years and has developed many good relationships at this time. In 2017, Dr Tran moved to Calgary and started his Family practice at a community practice in Northeast Calgary in addition to providing care to several long term care facilities. From Nov 16 2020, Dr. Tran will be practicing at Marlborough Medical Clinic.
