Kilvert lauded for first-rate patient care

Angela Spence of Chemainus is "extremely disappointed" regarding clinic's decision to let Dr. Kilvert go.

Editor:

I thoroughly agree, as I know a great many others do too, with Gene and Sally Peirce’s letter to the editor regarding the sad loss of Dr. Kilvert to the Ladysmith Family Practice Clinic. I was extremely disappointed to learn that her contract was not going to be renewed.

I would like to add my thanks and appreciation to Dr. Kilvert for always being so caring, thorough, patient, understanding and prepared to listen to any and all problems.  On one occasion, I had a list of six medical problems I wanted to discuss with her, but expected to only be able to cover one or two.  However, she took the time to listen and advise on all six, and then asked if there was anything else she could help me with.  This is not the usual experience with busy doctors, but was greatly appreciated and set me on the right track for further investigation.  She is a very pleasant, approachable, professional doctor and will be sorely missed by all her patients.
