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. 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.
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.
