    There is no specific one story about Dr. Andrea MacDonald but rather a collection of endless times she has gone above and beyond to provide health care to our family. I have even received personal calls with test results late on a Friday evening because she knew we were concerned! Thanks for all you do Dr. Andrea!


    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.


    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.
