Dr. Carol Rowntree

Dr Rowntree first came to Sundre as a University of Calgary medical student in 1984 to work with Dr Hal Irvine. She enjoyed the community so much that she returned after completing her Family Medicine residency at the University of Alberta in 1989.  Although she semi-retired from her practice 5 years ago she still very much enjoys filling in as a locum at Greenwood Family Physicians when one of the other doctors is away.  Carol and her husband Steve were both born and raised in the County of Mountain View and still love living in Sundre when they are not traveling and spending time in the mountains.



Dr. Beierle was born in Calgary and grew up around the Cochrane area. He attended medical school at the University of Calgary and completed his residency at the University of Alberta, completing a portion of his training in Sundre at the Greenwood clinic. He enjoyed his time training in Sundre, so much, he agreed to return as a locum after graduating. He grew up visiting family that lives between Caroline and Rocky Mountain House and enjoys fly fishing on the Red Deer River.

Dr. LEE and Dr. WALSH

Dr Elise Walsh and Dr Roberta (Robby) Lee were both trained at the University of Calgary. Dr Walsh had the opportunity to complete part of her residency in Sundre and loved it so much she convinced Dr Lee they should both sign on as locum physicians after graduating. The rest is history! When they aren't working, they can be found planning their next adventure, renovating their Surfside trailer, and daydreaming about getting a dog.
