New doctor sets up shop

Dr. Colleen Black is loving working in Princeton and hopes to make it a permanent position.

Meet Dr. Colleen Black.

Dr. Black began working in Princeton just last week and says she is, “loving it.”

She has joined the team consisting of Dr. Eva, Dr. Sandhu and nurse practitioner Tanya Terkeurs at the Cascade Medical Centre and at Princeton General Hospital. Dr. Black was born and raised in New Brunswick and has travelled all through Canada. She says she likes B.C. the best. Dr. Black and her husband Tim, a stock car racer, come to Princeton with their three large dogs, Odis, Phil and Bruce. They are a young family who enjoy fishing, Nascar and UFC, as well as the music of Willie Nelson.

“I’m a red-neck,” says Dr. Black with a giggle, “small town life is where it’s at for me!”

Dr. Black is on contact to serve the community for three years, however does hope to make it a permanent position. She is dedicated to rural medicine, emergency and geriatric care and wants to help make positive changes for the health care of Princeton and area residents. “We have a good group of Dr.’s who are motivated to make changes for the better,” she said. Dr. Black looks forward to meeting more Princeton and area residents and looks forward as well, to serving the community for years to come. Appointments can be made with Dr. Colleen Black by calling the Cascade clinic at 250-295-4482.  Welcome to Princeton Dr. Black.
