    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!


    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. Michelle Cain is caring, compassionate and available. Not only does she have a full family practice, she also does prenatal, deliveries, emergency department and she is about to become a mentor for the Dalhousie medical students. This community and our hospital have benefited greatly from having this local girl come home to practice.
