Just What the Doctor Ordered biographs the medical practitioners of Aylmer and Malahide from the early nineteenth century to the present day, including physicians, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, eye care specialists, chiropractors, and further specialized practitioners. Current and retired medical professionals of the community graciously contributed to the volume, and readers can learn more about those professionals’ careers within.

The Aylmer-Malahide Museum & Archives is a small nonprofit museum dedicated to the preservation and presentation of the history of Aylmer and Malahide. This volume was published in conjunction with its 2022 exhibit of the same name, Just What the Doctor Ordered: The Medical History of Aylmer and Malahide.

This project was sponsored by the Aylmer Express, the Royal Canadian Legion Colonel Talbot Branch No. 81, the Springfield Swans, Rosemary Kennedy, and Rhonda McNaughton.
