Pleasantly surprised by Oceanside Health Centre

This last week, we unfortunately needed to make a visit to the new Oceanside  Health Centre. Having heard negative reports, we were pleasantly surprised that any “kinks” they may have had, have been completed resolved.

The service we received was courteous and very professional.  Although we were processed within 15 minutes of our arrival, as our needs were not as urgent as others, we spent about two hours waiting to be treated.

How relieved we were that they treated the very sick, most likely contagious, people first, thereby not risking their contaminating others as the waiting area was full.

As Oceanside residents, we are very thankful to have such a wonderful, spotless, health centre in our immediate area.
