Family Doctor Day

What has it meant to you to be a Family Doctor for 26 years?

Being a family doctor has been an incredibly rewarding experience! Caring for people of all ages, from all walks of life has been a great honour. The wonderful part of family medicine is the long-term relationships you build with your patients. Being a family doctor has given me flexibility to pursue areas of special interest, like addiction medicine, while still caring for my patients. It’s also given me the flexibility to maintain a work life balance that helps prevent burnout. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

What has it meant to you to be a Family Doctor for 26 years?

Being a Family Doctor for nearly 32 years in Northern Manitoba and the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut has been an amazing experience. The modes of travel (airplane, floatplane, helicopter, skidoo, 4-wheeler, boat and on ice roads), the challenges with often limited supplies and resources in remote isolated settings, and the great Health Care Teams have all contributed to my unique practice. It is, however, the wonderful people of the north, and specifically those from the First Nations and Inuit communities with whom I have worked and from I have learned, who call me their Family Doctor, that makes it all worthwhile.
