"Staff are very professional and compassionate. They are doing miracles for people that want to stay clean."
OATC Sault Ste. Marie Patient
"The staff both at the O.A.T.C and the adjoining pharmacy are some of the warmest, kindest, and most caring people that I have ever encountered. Unfortunately, not everyone who goes there is kind and respectful, so I have seen them get yelled at, screamed at, and even threatened, and still they all have the best attitude. That being said, they should all get a nice big raise!!"
OATC Sault Ste. Marie Patient
"I don’t care what anyone says but treat people with respect you get respect, these ladies do go above and beyond their job! If it wasn’t for them I’m sure I would have had 3 orphaned children so say what you want but this place saved my life PERIOD"
