"Did our immigration medical exam with Dr. Keripe and everything went really well. The staff were very helpful and efficient, we were able to book the appointment within a day after we called. We arrived in their clinic from Halifax much earlier than our appointment time but they accommodated us. The results were sent to IRCC in less than a week! Highly recommend."

"Great support. Although I have looked for an immigration physician for a week and all the NB ones get an appointment for two month later, his office arranged everything and gets the appointment for next week. In addition, they faxed the requirements to the hospital, so I arrange other tests blood and x-ray at the same day. I cannot wait to see them and thank their valuable supports."
