What Our Patients Say

Layer -1

I recommend ISMI wholeheartedly ! I had the pleasure of experiencing the highly professional, caring, and inviting personnel at the ISMI Clinic for the first time recently, and cannot say enough about their wonderful service!

Dr. Khashy and his staff provided a calming, supportive atmosphere that I hadn’t experienced yet in the Quebec healthcare system. Every detail is considered to put patients who are getting serious diagnoses at ease:

My husband used the executive health service provided by Dr Zand and his team. I was involved in the scheduling of these services on behalf of my husband who is a surgeon with a very busy schedule.

Dr. Khashy and his team (particularly his nurse Rebecca) provided an exceptional, high quality and thorough service. While they provide a number of services, I used the executive health service they provide.

We were very pleased with your dedicated and efficient service starting with the Receptionist, and the Nurse and the Technician and then Doctor who handled us.

I didn’t even know such a service existed! Dr. Khashy and his team (especially his nurse Rebecca) provided us with exceptional, thorough and superior service.

There is definitely a need for more clinics like yours. Prior to being put into contact with you, I have been driving all the way to a private practice in Ottawa because I haven’t been able to find a similar level of service here in Montreal.

We need more doctors like Dr. Khashy in this world 🙂 Your compassionate care does not go unnoticed.
