Testimonials

… Andrea had been the only one with countless nurses and doctors that my daughter trusts 100%. Andrea can tell when she is lying, when she is struggling and has built a great relationship with her. The biggest part of kids with ED is that they have a hard time trusting. There is nobody more deserving of recognition than Andrea Logan. We have been through so many medical staff in the last two years. But she is the one who is responsible for saving my daughter’s life. I will be forever grateful to her

Andrea Logan

Testimonials

Two years ago she saved my life after my family doctor referred me to the eating disorders clinic which she works for. I was days away from dying and was extremely ill struggling with my ED. She got me the help that I needed to help get my life back. She has helped me so much with my mental and physical health and was able to help with my recovery. She is always there for me and is able to understand what I am going through. I trust her a lot and am able to be honest with her…she is there for me when I need it and is always there to listen. I believe that she is one of the most important people in my life and I am grateful that she is my NP because without her I would not be alive or have my life back

Testimonials

…From participating in each patient’s phone appointments with various doctors and their specialities, to providing us with detailed care instructions and demonstrations on the nitty-gritty of patient care to spending that extra 30 minutes talking us through the exhaustion, Pauline was there. Anytime any of us needed her, she was there. We never felt alone, questions were never left unanswered and both patients and family felt her deep sense of caring and commitment. In short, she was our guide and rock during a difficult transition… Pauline is definitely a local hero that is loved and respected by her patients. I couldn’t imagine how we would have managed through all of this over the past year without Pauline. If anyone has earned recognition for being above and beyond Pauline certainly has shown this many times over…

I had been without health care since moving to Orillia three years ago. Then, through Health Care Connect, I found this amazing clinic. I was fortunate enough to get Malcolm as my NP, and I’m so grateful for the exceptional health care I have received. Never have I been under the care of someone so devoted, knowledgeable and thorough. Here, I have found health care beyond my expectations! Many thanks to Malcolm and the staff of Huronia NP Clinic!

Paula is an incredible nurse practitioner. In the 4 years I have been Paula’s patient, she has been instrumental in both maintaining and improving my health….Any health issues that have developed, she has worked to help me find a solution…She is always professional and never hesitates to investigate different treatments for any concerns I have had, and as I am getting older, it seems these increase. She is a strong proponent of preventative care and promotion of positive life style, while accepting that the choice and responsibility are yours. I feel very privileged to have such an empathetic, kind health care professional to guide and care for my physical, social and emotional health. Paula listens and truly cares about her patients. Her leadership role in the WRNPL Clinc is exceptional.
