|Stonewall, Man., July 21, 2011— The Interlake Regional Health Authority is pleased to welcome new family physician Dr. Samy Faltas to Ashern.
Dr. Faltas will be practicing at Lakeshore Health Centre and Ashern Medical Clinic.
He received his medical degree at Cairo University and practiced family medicine in Egypt for 15 years prior to coming to Canada. In a way, working in Ashern feels a little like being back home for Dr. Faltas.
“Living in a rural community and providing medical care to the surrounding areas is something I did in Egypt,” Faltas said. “I am doing the same thing here and I have received a wonderfully warm welcome.”
Dr. Faltas came to Manitoba from Mississauga, Ontario, where he addressed all requirements to practice in Canada. He also spent six months working in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, at Western Memorial Regional Hospital.
Dr. Faltas arrived in Ashern one month ago. His wife, son (7) and daughter (5) will be joining him shortly. The Faltas family will be calling Ashern their home.
Dr. Faltas is accepting new patients. You can reach his office to schedule an appointment at 768-3821.
