Pam & John
As a long-time cancer patient who has so gratefully benefited from Dr. Overhill and our Health Centre team's exemplary care for over 5 years, I want to add my unequivocal support for reinstating Kirsty's practice and to voice my distress at the possibility of the community and our family losing such a caring, compassionate and proactive professional. I have always felt uplifted by her positive yet realistic approach to my care, and last year she was directly responsible for encouraging me to try a life-prolonging procedure when all else had failed. Her ability to explain complexities and promptly communicate with my other doctors has been invaluable and deeply reassuring. She is more than a doctor to John and I as we have depended on her vigilant support throughout many difficult times. Kirsty’s has given us the confidence to live on Cortes and we anticipated she would be there to help with my end-of-life care. To think otherwise is devastating to us both.
