Physician Testimonials

Whether relocating to Manitoba or deciding to practice in their home province, we're fortunate to have many great physicians and diverse opportunities for them to practice here!

Dr. Denis Fortier
VP Medical Services/Vice-président - services médicaux
Assistant Professor, University of Manitoba
Southern Health-Santé Sud

“Working and living in a rural community in Southern Health-Santé Sud allows me to practice family medicine as it has always been intended - the full spectrum from babies to seniors and everything in between as well as offering primary care, emergency care and acute care services. And to fully understand the person in the context of their family within the context of their community is extremely rewarding.”

Dr. Rhythm Gumber
Lead Hospitalist
Medical Director, Medicine Program specializing in Chronic Disease Management
Bethesda Regional Health Centre

Dr. Rhythm Gumber was born, raised and completed his Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery in India before moving to Ontario Canada in 2007. Dr. Gumber moved to Winnipeg in 2009 to pursue his residency in Family Medicine with the Urban Residency stream at the University of Manitoba. Dr. Gumber chose Steinbach to complete his rural residency rotation and confirms it’s the best decision he’s made

“Steinbach is a great place with lots of potential and lots of practice options for primary care practitioners with an awesome group of Physicians and wonderful staff.”


Dr. James MacTavish
Family Practitioner
Treherne, Manitoba

“Having grown in up rural Manitoba and being familiar with the friendly nature of small town living, it was an easy decision to pursue rural medicine. I have worked in Treherne for nearly three years and feel I was well prepared by Manitoba's rural residency program for the work environment that exists in a smaller community. Our work entails a broad scope of practice, and we are challenged to problem-solve and enhance our knowledge on a daily basis.

My colleagues and I derive a lot of satisfaction from the opportunity to provide continuity of care to our patients. To develop a relationship and help them navigate the health-care system is truly gratifying.”

Dr. Carine Minders
Brandon Regional Health Centre

“I'm extremely proud to be part of such a wonderful health system. I am able to practice first class evidence based medicine to all people regardless of their financial background. I can focus on providing the best health care for each and every patient without first checking if their health care plan allows me to do so. I am proud that we can also practice a lot of preventative care and we have proper screening guidelines. I think family practice in Canada has allowed me to do what I truly believe in: Holistic patient care.

Manitoba has a reputation for being the friendliest province, and I can testify to that as being fact.”
