Our Mission Print E-mail

We are a young and dynamic gastroenterology clinic installed in Montreal since 2008.

This specialty deals with problems related to the digestive tube and its glands namely: the esophagus, the  stomach, the small intestine, the colon, the liver, the gallbladder and the pancreas.

We want to give our clinic a triple mission:

  1. Firstly and mainly a mission of prevention: consisting mainly in the detection of colon cancer ( colorectal cancer ) known as the 3rd most common cause of cancer in men and women. Through this activity we perform the screening colonoscopy, diagnostic colonoscopy and therapeutic colonoscopy (in which we are able to make the removal of polyps).
  2. A mission of diagnosis and treatment for all your problems in the sphere of gastroenterology.
  3. A mission of followup for the patients with a chronic digestive condition, who require specialized and regular check-ups.
As of February 10th 2017, our services of consultation and endoscopy (colonoscopy, gastroscopy) will not be covered any longer by the RAMQ.

Fees will be required for visits and endoscopies. By calling at our clinic (514 769 7198) you should be able to obtain the list of our prices.

If you are specifically looking for a screening colonoscopy (colon cancer prevention), it is possible to take the appointment directly at our desk by calling at 514 769 7198. Our secretary will ask you a few questions concerning your daily medication intake (certain medications need to be stopped before the colonoscopy), and will explain you the details of the preparation. This will allow you to avoid an unnecessary, preliminary visit to the doctor. Nevertheless, if your medical condition is quite complicated, our staff could propose you a prior consultation with the specialist.
Our endoscopic examination can be offered to you through personalized, fast and affordable service in our clinic.
