I want to congratulate the Comox Valley for the excellent health-care system I have discovered here. I moved to the Valley three years ago from Victoria (where I grew up), and was able to secure (for the first time in 10 years) a personal general practitioner. I was absolutely ‘over the moon’ about this fortuitous event, and, after three years with the same doctor, I couldn’t be happier.
My doctor is so very much into getting me the best and fastest medical treatment ever, that I feel as if I had fallen into ‘Medical Heaven.’ In fact, she is so interested in my well-being and continued good health, sometimes, I feel the need
to politely refuse certain tests she proposes.
The new, efficient and fabulous hospital is the best. The staff are beyond amazing: kind, polite and very considerate. How people who patiently work so hard to keep both their patients and their medical contemporaries so happy is a joyful mystery to me—they are lovely.
The specialists I have seen are knowledgeable, proficient and caring. My wait to see them has been minimal, and I feel like I receive royal treatment every time I have occasion to attend at their offices.
You may think from my enthusiasm that I’m either in the medical profession, or a person who has lots of friends and acquaintances in the Comox Valley to support me.
I am a senior, and I am neither in (or ever have been) in the medical profession, and I have no friends in the medical profession who live in the Comox Valley. What I have experienced to compare is utter disgust with the dismal excuse for medical care in other Canadian cities.
