    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.


    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!
