Letter: These doctors saved my life

Editor:

For almost three years, I was suffering from a medical condition that awoke me and forced me out of my bed , on average , four times each night.

Each local medical office gave me the same solution — call 811. The continual pain and lack of sleep was killing me .

In desperation, I drove up to Sun Peaks Family Practice because they said I could talk to a doctor. The physician had an idea of what my problem was and referred me to a neurologist to prove or disprove his theory.

Due to a cancellation, a helpful receptionist and a lot of luck, I was able to see the neurologist very quickly. He confirmed the theory and referred me to a surgeon. I then had my surgery.

I want to give a huge thank you to Dr. Shane Barclay and staff at Sun Peaks Family Practice, Dr. Russell Mosewich and staff and Dr. Laura Zeznik and staff.

In my view, they saved my life. I recently had the first pain-free night in a long time.
