Letter: Visiting MD impressed with Princeton and its people

Locums – visiting doctors – give support to Princeton General Hospital and Cascade Medical Centre.

This letter was received by the municipality earlier this month.

November, 2020

Dear Mayor Coyne:
Thank you for the personal visit when I started my locum period in Princeton, and the very generous gift bag and basket.
I very much appreciated your taking the time to swing by. I enjoyed all the goodies and also took advantage of the invitation from Rick Watson to do some bicycling in the area.
We actually ran into each other (not literally) up on China Ridge and I was impressed hearing about the features of the area.
I have done many locums and this is the warmest welcome I’ve received. It makes a difference starting in a new community to feel appreciated. It relieves some of the stress of figuring out the new computer system and local protocols and how the place is organized.
The doctors, nurses and staff at the clinic and hospital were all helpful and welcoming.
I went twice to Cool Beanz and the second time was called by name. That was a realy nice bonus.
I enjoyed my time in Princeton and will be happy to locum in your community in the future. Thank you again.
Dr. David Singleton
