New medical practice for Alert Bay

A resident of Alert Bay welcomes Doctor John Jensen to the area.

Dear editor,

A new Family Practitioner opened a medical practice in Alert Bay on January 2, 2013 at 60 Fir St (at the front of the Seine Boat Inn).

Dr John Jensen was in family practice for 31 years in South Africa and Ireland, and arrived in Canada August, 2010, after taking five years to sail 55,000 miles around the world in his 38-foot catamaran. He started work in Campbell River, then visited Alert Bay in May 2012 and fell in love with the natural beauty and history of the area.

He has recently purchased a foreshore lease, and will begin building a house and medical practice in the spring. He is looking forward to a long and happy association with the Alert Bay and surrounding communities.

Dr Jensen is currently taking new patients, and the clinic hours are 9-12 and         1-5pm, Monday to Friday, on a no-appointment basis. The telephone number is 250-974-3106, and Fax number is 2250-974-3107.
