Ponoka physicians ‘deeply saddened’ by loss of Dr. Reynolds

BRMC reminds patients doctors still available for telephone appointments

Battle River Medical Clinic (BRMC) issued a short statement on Aug. 13.

“We are shocked and deeply saddened by the senseless loss of our colleague Dr. Walter Reynolds,” said Dr. Gregory Sawisky, on behalf of BRMC.

“Words cannot begin to articulate our profound grief. Our thoughts go to his family, his wife and two children as well as his colleagues at the Village Mall walk-in clinic and his patients.

“We encourage anyone who is feeling affected or distressed by this loss to reach out to community support services, including, but not limited to, their own family physician, Mental Health or other community agency.”
