Dr. David Webster

Professionalism Awards Nomination

I would very much like to nominate Dr. David Webster, GP in Yarmouth for being a resounding advocate for his patients in a rural setting. His manner with patients and their families, particularly during the end of life, was the perfect model for a third-year student to follow and learn from. Throughout my encounters with Dr. Webster, his patients always praised his thoughtfulness and thoroughness, as well as his calm demeanor in a crisis. Dr. Webster was never dismissive towards a patient, no matter how minor their complaint. I also appreciated career advice from Dr. Webster, who has held a practice in Yarmouth for many years and had advice on the myriad ways to organize his time, ensure that urgent patients are seen quickly, and why rural family medicine is truly very special.

Thanks very much,
Rosalind Ashton
