    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.


    After years of treating the first Nations people of Eskasoni, Dr. Virick has donated 140 hectares of land to the band, plus he has also donated a building on George Street in Sydney to be used for Health Care purposes. He is well respected and admired man and 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.
