    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!


    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.
