Dr. Barrie McDonald

When Barrie came to Powell River, he wanted a combination of a part-time emergency practice and full-service family practice. He was able to do that here, amongst a collegial group of physicians, and felt really welcomed. He started with a plan to stay one or two years, and as his family grew, he realized that Powell River provided the quality of life they wanted.


Professional speaking,, it has been a really  rewarding place to practice.

we can spend time I think, a little bit more with our kids, pend a little more time with our families, and, for me that ’s the quality of life, that we wanted.
