Don’t criticize the Oceanside Health Centre, it’s the best

On April 13 I suffered a heart attack while unloading garbage at the Parksville waste transfer station.

On April 13 I suffered a heart attack while unloading garbage at the Parksville waste transfer station.

My pulse raced to 228 beats a minute and I temporarily lost sight in my left eye.

My wife drove me to the Oceanside Health Centre in Parksville — and the response I received was nothing short of amazing.

Within seconds I was on a hospital gurney and had a room full of medical professionals in attendance.

After discussion and approval I was zapped with some kind of electronic device resembling a small atom bomb and my pulse returned to normal.

Don’t anyone complain about service at the  Oceanside Health Centre — at least not in my presence.

To the medical staff at the Oceanside Health Centre: you are the best.
