Thanks doc­tor

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I WANT to say a heart­felt thank you to Dr Mike McFall for his many years of ded­i­cated ser­vice to the Whit­sun­days com­mu­nity. Mike be­gan prac­tis­ing medicine in Air­lie Beach 10 years ago, spent some time in Bowen, and even­tu­ally achieved his dream of im­prov­ing lo­cal med­i­cal ser­vices by open­ing his own prac­tice in Cannonvale a few years ago. His vi­sion to bring new ser­vices (eg. the mole scan ma­chine) and pro­vide a med­i­cal hub by hav­ing an­cil­lary ser­vices close by (pathol­ogy and X-ray) was fi­nally achieved. Mike was an ex­cep­tional GP. He is knowl­edge­able, com­pas­sion­ate, car­ing and al­ways took time to lis­ten to his pa­tients con­cerns. His pa­tients never felt rushed or unim­por­tant, and all his pa­tients ap­pre­ci­ated his gen­uine car­ing man­ner. For those se­ri­ously ill pa­tients he was al­ways happy to pro­vide his per­sonal phone num­ber so they had 24/7 ac­cess to their doc­tor - yes, he went that ex­tra mile to pro­vide his pa­tients with the best pos­si­ble care. He was well liked in the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion, and in the com­mu­nity and a gen­uine good bloke. He will be sadly missed by all those who knew him. So thank you Mike, for your help and friend­ship over many years. I can only wish you all the very best for the fu­ture as you bat­tle your own ill health. San­dra Wil­liams AIR­LIE BEACH
