"The world-class equipment and cutting edge
technology I have access to here in rural Nova Scotia at the Aberdeen Hospital is on par with anything that I’ve practiced with all over the world. On the personal side, opportunities like Ultimate Frisbee and Pulse Pictou County events allowed my wife and I to quickly integrate in the community and make close friends. My wife was also able to further her education just a short commute in neighbouring Antigonish, couple that with us being able to find an affordable home close to the hospital, and the recent establishment of a mosque, we’re very happy to call
Pictou County home." - Dr. El-Tahan's commute to work is approximately 3 kilometers
