Dr. Babar M Hameed

I have nothing but good words to say about the CanAm team who provided excellent services above and beyond my expectations. CanAm is very professional and transparent and I would recommend them to any of my colleagues. I am an international medical graduate and CanAm has accommodated my family and I, and I am very thankful for their services. They treated us as family and they are the best recruiters.

Rob Casserley, MD, MRCGP, CCFP

I’d just like to thank CanAm recruiting, and in particular Phil Jost, for securing my first job in Canada. What seemed like an impossible task when I set out trying to do things on my own, rapidly took shape with the guidance from Phil. I talk with particular perspective as an IMG and the difficulties that we can face trying to break in to the workforce of Canada. However, he’s helped with finding a potential employer, making me an “acceptable’ candidate – helping to resolve issues such as work permit, PCRC, CMPA, MCCEE. He gave clear, easy to follow advice, which when looked at altogether seemed like a mountain to climb but with CanAm’s advice, became a tangible process that took, from start to finish, in the order of 3-4 months, a genuinely remarkable turn-around. This, bearing in mind, I was starting right at the beginning/from scratch. Thanks Phil and CanAm recruiting. I look forward to working through you guys for the ongoing future. Rob Casserley

Dr. Tewogbola Ajisebutu, FRACGP, CCFP

At the time I made up my mind for a move to practice in Ontario, I first contacted Phil Jost who directed me to call Hedi Cameron who is in charge of Canam Recruiting operations in Ontario. I am glad he did because right from the time I gave Hedi a phone call about my plans to get registered in Ontario, she immediately got the ball rolling and made what was a difficult process an easy one. Hedi worked and guided me through the application which was quite demanding, by her numerous pieces of advice and tips through e-mails and phone calls. She never for once kept me waiting for answers to questions I raised during the process. E-mails were responded to and phone calls were promptly returned. While guiding me through the registrations with CPSO, she also helped me in looking for practices from which I eventually picked one. She stood by me up to the point of signing the contract with the owners of the practice I chose to work from. All through the process, Hedi was very professional and she demonstrated a deep knowledge of the issues involved in helping physicians get registered with the CPSO, relocate and practise in Ontario. It is without reservation that I recommend Hedi to any physician with plans to register and work in Ontario. Many thanks to you Hedi.

Dr. Zahra Jamal., MRCGP, CCFP

Getting ready to move and work in Canada can be quite an overwhelming process and I honestly don’t think that it would have happened as quickly or as smoothly if it wasn’t for Phil Jost. I moved over from the UK on my own in 2008, but Phil was there for me every step of the way. From the very first telephone conversation he was able to assess my credentials and provide me with accurate information with regards to licensing and where I could practice as a family physician in Canada. Phil has extensive experience in working with physicians and keeps himself informed on any new developments that could affect his clients. He maintains a strong working relationship with colleagues in the Department of Health and at the College of Physicians and Surgeons and was also able to liase with them on my behalf. The immigration process is tedious but he made regular phone calls to me to see how it was going and was always available when I needed advice. He is incredibly efficient in his work, has a good understanding of the indvidual’s needs, is encouraging and extremely patient. After arriving in Canada I was introduced to his family who welcomed me and became my first friends here. He was able to advise me on most things from buying a car to where to buy the best snow gear. After living in Canada for over two years he still checks up on me and makes himself available and approachable. He has and continues to remain genuinely interested in me as well as my family’s welfare. I am very grateful to him for his huge efforts, he truly goes above and beyond, and would recommend him wholeheartedly without any reservation.

I was recently referred to Mr. Phil Jost by a trusted physician colleague who highly recommended him as a knowledgeable professional capable of providing professional advice to help me find a successful career pathway to finally enter Canadian Family Medicine practice. Mr. Jost contacted me be telephone, carefully assessed my current career situation and was able to provide me with several options, both verbally and in writing, for me to follow to get my career back on track. Mr. Jost was indeed very professional, patient and knowledgeable and I found the information he provided to be very valuable when making my future career decisions. I truly wish I had contacted him before I left my home in Iraq to come to Canada, and I am sure I would have avoided many of the career obstacles that I have encountered since arriving in Canada in 2011. I highly recommend Mr. Jost’s counsel to any physician considering a move to Canada. Firas Elias Douri, MD

Samina Kazmi, MD

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

Dr. A. Raveendran FRCS MRCGP CCFP

I am a Family Physician from the UK and got interested in relocating to Ontario. Not to anybody’s surprise, the process of getting licensed by CPSO was so very complicated – requiring endless paperwork, finding a supervisor and satisfying many criteria. While I was hunting for jobs in Ontario, one morning, my wife accidentally came across Hedi Cameron’s ( of CamAm Physician Recruiting) details and I emailed her with my queries. She replied within minutes and that was the start and she kept her promptness, professionalism and courtesy all the way till I finally got the license. It was a particularly difficult journey for me as I required a clinical supervisor for a certain period and this really posed a stumbling block to the progress. Hedi was very prompt and efficient, she was on the phone with the college numerous times to clarify matters, also chasing behind the supervisors to keep the paperwork ready within target time. What impressed me particularly was that Hedi genuinely looked after my welfare as much as she cared for the employer all along the difficult and protracted journey. Never was there a time that she tried to cut corners just for the sake of finding me a place. We had to move between many employers in order to satisfy the College regarding the arrangements for my supervision at work. Hedi made herself available in the weekends and at unsocial hours as I had a tight schedule. She was very friendly, honest and I find her extremely knowledgeable in her field. She is outspoken, genuine and does not give false hopes. I was extremely lucky to have met Hedi Cameron and I am absolutely certain that without her in the scene, I would never have obtained my license from CPSO. I find Hedi Cameron one of the most efficient professionals that I have ever met and I would strongly recommend Hedi Cameron of CanAm Physician Recruiting to any physician who is considering relocating to Canada.

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
