Q&A with Dr. Bonimy
I saw the dire need in The Bahamas for these specialties and wanted to be closely involved in the proper treatment of patients dealing with common to the rarest infections.
The fact that it keeps me on my toes because no person or disease is identical. I also love the fact that I’m in a profession where there are always opportunities for learning and growth. Having the opportunity to intervene and assist people that are often having the worse day of their lives means so much to me.
I’m a fisherman at heart.
My son keeps me laughing, he definitely keeps a smile on my face.
I’d be an entrepreneur.
Being able to finally return home, settle down and also start my medical practice and family.
Q&A with Dr. Burrowes
I would say that neurosurgery and the spine surgery subspecialty “chose” me.
I love the fact that I have the ability to play a crucial role in the restoration of hope, faith and
functionality to my patients in some of the most uncertain and challenging moments of their
I went skydiving in Australia.
If I didn't choose the medical route my alternate goal would have been to pursue a PhD in Biotechnology.
The achievement that brings the most pride is the moment I decided to trust Jesus Christ with my life as Lord and Saviour.
Q&A with Dr. Cartwright
As a medical student I kept my heart and mind open to what would be the long term plan for me in medicine. During my medical school rotations I fell in love with Endocrinology. This specialty is fascinating to me, each patient's condition presents as a puzzle that we work together to figure out.
Building relationships with patients, working together to improve their quality of life through patient care and education about their health, empowering them to be the author of their health story.
I love a wide array of music spanning generations and genres, often my playlists are frustrating to my husband as they are a mash up of so many different types of songs.
A good stand up comedian, memes and my daughter.
I find it truly hard to envision myself in any other role, although if I had to truly consider it, I would likely still be in healthcare in some capacity.
Being a mother, and for me especially becoming one during my medical training. I could not have done it without my wonderful, supportive husband.
Proud of his island roots, Dr. Deveaux is considered a down home Bahamian doctor who truly cares about his patients. On a daily basis, Dr. Deveaux connects with them by taking time to listen. He’s empathic, forthright and desires to see all his patients in optimal health.
Q&A with Dr. Deveaux
I chose nephrology because a close family member was diagnosed with kidney disease and had to do dialysis. This peaked my interest and I wanted to be able to help him.
I love the fact that it doesn’t feel like a job, it feels like a natural extension of my personality. I enjoy helping people in whatever way I can.
I make a mean pineapple tart and potato bread.
I would be in hospitality or sales.
Being a husband to a beautiful wife and father to two adorable children.
Q&A with Dr. Knowles-Adderley
My Anatomy and Physiology professor in undergrad introduced me to the field of Podiatry. After shadowing multiple physicians, I took keen interest in the field because of the wide age range of patients from pediatrics to geriatrics which results in a broad range of care/ type of treatments. I loved the surgical aspect and appreciated the fact that I could tailor my practice to be as clinical or as surgical as I desire.
t brings me joy when I can take someone out of discomfort and give them relief. Patient gratitude is the real reward.
I don’t like pickles or mustard and I did ballet until age 17.
Honestly, I can find humor in almost anything. I guess I’m pretty silly.
Unemployed….. but seriously, I considered pursuing ballet professionally. I can’t imagine being any good at it right now though
My family, especially my newborn baby boy Israel.
She’s like a super sleuth who enjoys finding the root cause of difficult to diagnose medical disorders. Dr. Wallace believes that laughter truly is good for the bones and aims to provide
comprehensive health care for her patients each day.
Q&A with Dr. Smith-Wallace
I chose Internal Medicine and Endocrinology because I love to manage difficult medical disorders. Many physicians find Endocrinology very confusing but for me, it’s second nature. These patients present with myriad symptoms that don’t point to any one problem. It’s like being a good detective, getting to the root of the problem..
I love being a doctor because I get to change someone’s life for the better. I get to form long lasting relationships with people I may have never met otherwise. Most importantly I get to save lives, literally.
Most people don’t know that I’ve managed the Endocrinology Clinic at Princess Margaret Hospital for more than seven years.
What make me laugh most is those three comedians that I have given birth to. Laughter is the key to a long life and they sure keep me young at heart (that is when I’m not pulling out my hair).
If I wasn’t a doctor, I’d probably be an entrepreneur.
I’m most proud of setting goals and achieving them all academically. Also having a lovely family and now being able to provide comprehensive health care to my patients.
