We recognize we still have a long way to go until we have a full complement of doctors for our residents."
Dr. Beheshti comes to Weyburn from Toronto. He trained in Iran. He says he found Weyburn to be a caring and welcoming community.
Dr. Gupta comes from India, where he trained, with his son. His wife will follow soon. Dr. Gupta has more than 20 years experience in family medicine. He has worked in Redvers twice before for short periods, and says it is an excellent community.
