Kevin Wasko, Cypress Health Region

CanAm Recruiting has been great to work with from day one! I can alway rely on a quick response regarding my recruitment needs. We have recruited three full-time permanent physicians in a 6 month time period from CanAm, as well as one locum physician, all in different specialties. These physicians were very well qualified and have worked out nicely. Unlike other agencies, CanAm seems to really understand the recruitment process and builds a relationship with both the physician and the health authority. Such a relationship does not often exist in other agencies.

I am a Neurologist who has recently relocated from West Virginia (USA) to Toronto Canada. I want to especially thank my recruiter Hedi Cameron, CanAm Physician Recruiting, who helped me through this move. Getting credentialed through CPSO (College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario) was a long process requiring a lot of patience. Hedi was very helpful and informative during this period. Hedi was a delight to work with. She was professional, responsive and exhibited a great deal of attention to detail. She responded to my calls promptly. She not only helped me in getting licensed, but also went the extra mile to help me with my immigration paper work, fiinding a residence and other related matters. I want to express my deep appreciation and admiration for her highly efficient, professional, and personable help. I would strongly recommend Hedi of CanAm as a physician recruiter for anybody who is planning to move to Canada. Samina Kazmi, MD

None of the good things already posted about Hedi Cameron are exaggerations. At the age of 52 I have seldom if ever met a more professional person, pleasant to talk to and following through on every detail. After she spent some time with me at one of my job interviews, the person who hired her to recruit me also commented on her outstanding professionalism, as it is even more apparent in person than it is on the phone. I once told a friend thinking of relocating to Canada to call her if interested, that she would feel like a million dollar CEO the way everything was taken care of in such a friendly, prompt and efficient manner. Now I’m moved to the practice she helped me choose without pressure, she is still invested in my success here. We doctors seldom encounter people in the business world who behave as if every person and every detail matters in the way we often try to in our work, so when someone exceeds our expectations it really is extraordinary.

From the moment I contacted Canam I received expert, knowledgeable advice and ongoing professional, proactive support that resulted in a smooth transition to my new physician practice in Newfoundland. The guidance I received from CanAm got results in a much shorter time, and with fewer of the worry and hassles experienced by many of my colleagues who didn’t have the CanAm advantage. I am very happy with my choice of CanAm and highly recommend their services to any physician seeking the opportunity to work in Canada.

Leszek Swica MD, FRCPSC

My name is Leszek Swica, I am Canadian trained and Royal College certified anesthesiologist. Following completion of my residency training at the Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia I worked for 13 years at the Aberdeen Regional Hospital in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. In November 2011 administration cancelled the local anesthesia contract agreement and I decided to look for another place of employment. Following recommendation of my anesthesia colleague I contacted Mr. John Philpott from CanAm Physician Recruiting. In his recruitment effort Mr. Philpott was looking for the place that would match my training, work experience, carrier goals and would also give me financial stability. He identified a vacant position at the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current, Saskatchewan which was not advertised in medical journals or recruitment web sites. Mr. Philpott was very efficient in his search and brought to my attention the fact that there was another strong candidate looking seriously at this place. Following his advice I went ASAP for the site visit in Swift Current. I received the job offer and I signed my present contract agreement at the time of that site visit in March 2012. Thanks to Mr. Philpott I found a great place to work and live. The Cypress Regional Hospital has a very professional work environment and friendly relations between OR staff and members of other departments. Physicians are very well looks after and enjoy good working relations with the local administration. The Cypress Health Region has the Family Medicine training programme affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan. As a preceptor of the residents having anesthesia rotations I was appointed a Clinical Assistant Professor at the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan. I find my teaching activities to be very exciting, professionally stimulating and refreshing. Town of Swift Current has a population size, life style and all amenities very similar to Pictou County in Nova Scotia where I lived and worked until April 2012. Province of Saskatchewan has a strong and booming economy. Saskatchewan Medical Association enjoys very good working contacts with the provincial government and is able to negotiate good working conditions and competitive income for its members. It is my great pleasure to write about this positive experience and I can highly and without hesitation recommend Mr. John Phipott and CanAm Physician Recruiting. He is very professional and honest. He is also very efficient and his recruitment objectives are

Tawfiq ZeidanSchwiri, MD, Cardiology

I met Phil Jost from CanAm Physician Recruiting during a Canada wide job search for a staff cardiologist position. An initial telephone conversation introduced us to a polite, well-mannered gentleman willing to help and guide me on our journey of securing a post as an International Medical Graduate (IMG). Phil proved to be anything but a typical recruitment consultant. He called, frequently followed up, and took the time to ask all the relevant questions in relation to our needs on both the professional and personal fronts. Phil’s skills and experience are exceptional, and he was very helpful in initially refining our job search by identifying the best and most appropriate hospitals, in the most suitable Canadian locations. His persistence, drive and dedication were remarkable, and of great help in emphasizing my unique skills and experience to his clients. His advice in preparing for the interview was also remarkable. He met me at the airport, and took care to discuss details of the position that ensured I was well prepared to perform in the interview. Once an offer for a job was made Phil contacted the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the province to ensure that my license to practice was issued on time.Phil guided us through the privilege documentation needed by the hospital and was accurate and precise in all details. After I started my new job, Phil again contacted us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Phil also organized for an immigration lawyer to arrange a work permit. He introduced us to realtors, mortgage brokers and other service providers required when you’re a foreign worker moving with a family. His guidance on the personal front was excellent. We bought a house in the suburb that was best for our family through a realtor he recommended, and with five months hindsight, it has proven an excellent choice. We couldn’t be happier. He remained in contact throughout our move. Recently we faced a new obstacle with our health insurance because of our status as foreign workers, and one call to Phil had it resolved within 24 hours (our health insurance was reinstated without a gap). During the time we have worked with Phil, he has always responded and returned our calls promptly, even while he was on vacation. His commitment, dedication and loyalty to his clients are exceptional. His knowledge of the Canadian Health Care System is extensive

The Canam team seems to have a very good grasp of what it takes to get IMGs practising in Canada. The staff are hands on and are well placed to advise on steps required to eliminate any deficits capable of making it difficult to get employment as a physician in Canada. The assessment fee is well worth it.

David M Dodge BSc, BMedSc, MD,FRCPC

John Philpott and his staff have the finger on the pulse of current physician recruitment throughout the world. They helped us find 2 highly qualified physicians that we could not find via “traditional” recruitment methods. If you are looking for qualified physicians or you are a physician looking for the best recruitment specialists available then look no further than John Philpott and CanAm Physician Recruiting. You won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Syed

Mr. Philpott was referred by a family member whom he helped over 15 years ago land a great hospitalist job and help transition from USA to Canada. He is well-mannered, prompt and VERY knowledgeable. He took the time to guide me through the process and the requirements I need in order to practice in Canada.

Mohamed Ravalia MD, CCFP

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to John Philpott and his team for establishing a recruiting firm that has helped numerous physicians navigate the complexity of Medical licensure in Canada. I practice in a rural demographic where IMG’s are a crucial element in ensuring an adequate physician supply. John’s team have the experience and expertise that have allowed many of my colleagues to attain licensure and settle comfortably into the Canadian medical milieu. The attention to detail,a personal touch and close follow up are a testimony to the high standards that John Philpott has set as a foundation of his company. I would advise any physician wishing to set up practice in Canada to take full advantage of this outstanding firm. You will not be disappointed.
