In praise of South African doctors

A letter in the Feb. 9 Advocate entitled Clean up Alberta’s mess has made me very angry. The letter writer — I won’t give him the dignity of naming him — rants about many things that are very unkind and maybe untrue. One that is particularly offensive is about the South African doctors in our midst.

My experience is that they are very professional, very caring, very well trained, very knowledgeable and very kind.

I trust that they know that not all Alberta residents feel the way of that author and that they will carry on doing a very fine job here in Alberta.
