Rural B.C. town of Logan Lake loses their only physician

Residents of a rural B.C. town believe the local health authority’s search for a replacement physician amounts to a prescription for mismanagement.

The community’s sole general practitioner, Dr. Uzair Sheik, is leaving to return to Africa with his family. For five years, Dr. Sheik was the sole physician in Logan Lake, a mining town of 2,000 people located about 45 minutes southwest of Kamloops.
