Dr. Kevin Lefebvre, General Surgeon
The MRI has not only met, but exceeded my expectations.
For many of my patients it’s the first time they’ve ever used an MRI, but most have stories of friends who had to wait months for one. So when they are able to have it done here within a couple of weeks, it makes a big impression.
As a general surgeon I’m using the MRI for more and more patients and it has largely replaced some of our more invasive tests; and that’s always better for your patients. It has also had a huge impact on patient treatment planning, helping us decide how certain cancers should be treated.
Bringing an MRI to Stratford was worth the investment—and then some. We’re now able to do things for our patients that are both new and better, and we’re able to do that purely because of what people have donated.
