After four years working in Burnaby Hospital’s Emergency Department, Dr. Paul Johar, is one of many heroes working in the hospital’s frontlines. He’s been practicing for seven years now, enjoys the nine- to ten-hour shifts and says his days are never typical and goes by very quickly.

“I get a chance to see a lot of people,” he shares, “and I think I’m able to help a lot of people that way. I’m in an atmosphere surrounded by health care professionals and I’m able to learn from them and bounce ideas off of them. And that’s really unique in the Emergency Department.”
