West Islander accused of illegally practicing medicine

The operator of a health clinic in Pointe Claire has aroused the wrath of the Quebec College of Physicians.

The College says Ken Montizambert is not a doctor but does some of the tasks only physicians are permitted to do, including prescribe medication.

Montizambert identifies himself as an osteopath and a naturopath.

The College has charged him with 12 counts of illegally practicing medicine.

The charges were laid after the College mounted a sting operation, sending an undercover investigator to the Tri-Med clinic on St. John's Boulevard.

    Quebec College of Physicians should start by looking at the mirror first instead of wasting time on courts. It sounds more like protection of their sindicated members i.e. protection of their business like practices - just look at how many doctors who cannot get a licence drive a cab.
    Maybe they should embrace treatments practiced by Neuropaths instead of looking at manuals on how to threat their patience. Ooops ..we just got a new manual today..

    It all looks like Mr.Montizambert has taken a chunk of their lucrative business. I suggest a simple solution - give him the licence to do whatever QCP is objecting to. Of course this would be an easy task if they are concerned about patients. But why not , he is curing more people than they do.
    ( I truly apologize to those few who still practice medicine because of its noble causes - but they should be on Ken's side anyway )

    The only business this hack has taken from real dorctors are the dim-witted and gullible.

    Osteopathy, naturopathy, and homeopathy are all based on pseudoscientific nonsense and have no demonstrable benefit beyond that of a placebo.

    The thought of this quack prescribing drugs is truly disturbing.

    He belongs in jail.

    Being a patient for many years and my husband as well for cancer, from which he passed away from, we were never prescribed medications or did see any untoward activity.

    Of course he is under attack. He is taking away there bread and butter by offering alternatives that in other parts of the world would be considered the norm.

    Instead of attacking him they should find a way to work together with him and all naturopaths to offer patients a wider range of therapies.

    For shame.

    Naturopath are allowed to prescribe meds in Ontario. This is a jurisdiction problem and not a qualification problem.

    The general public would greatly benefit if physicians worked together with Naturopaths! Western medicine unfortunately is very good at bandaging symptoms and not healing them. The human body has an amazing capability to heal itself, if only given a chance. This is when someone like Ken Montizambert has a great advance over traditional medicine! I have seen Ken for myself and have referred many people. He has helped each and every one, where traditional medicine could not.
    I am siding with Ken and wish him the very best for ALL concerned!
