"I have been locuming regularly in Emo over the past 2 years. Emo is a beautiful town with lots of outdoor activities. Accommodations are good and are close to the clinic. The clinic is well run with a very helpful staff. Phlebotomy is onsite. Xray, Ultrasound, CT and General Surgery and OB/GYN are available in close by Fort Frances. Other major specialists are available in Winnipeg and Thunder Bay. Emo has a well-stocked grocery store and a few restaurants. Fort Frances is close by and has more shopping and restaurants available. I would highly recommend the opportunity for both locum work and a longer-term position in Emo." Dr. Ken Deichert
