    I have to say as a medical student and a nurse for 26 years, this is the type of doctor I want to be. Dr. Steven MacDougall is a real doctor, going out of his way to better care for his patients. Excellent job doctor!


    Dr. Allison Watson is the best family doctor I have ever known. When I visit her office I know that she is completely focused on me and the health care that I need. She provides balanced and thoughtful advice, and she is incredibly persistent at following through to get to a real resolution. I really appreciate the opportunity to tell people how special she is.


    Dr. Jane Howard is the most amazing doctor I‘ve ever met. She’s not only a great doctor but also takes time to listen and really cares about her patients. I feel blessed to have her as my doctor.
