West Island clinic accused of illegally practicing medicine will stay open until court date

Quebec's College of Physicians was in court Monday morning getting an injunction against a Pointe-Claire osteopath and naturopath accused of illegally practicing medicine.

The Tri-Med Clinic on St. John’s Boulevard will be allowed to stay open while awaiting a trial, as long Ken Montizambert does not practice medicine.

The College of Physicians is accusing Montizambert of 12 counts of illegally practicing medicine after he conducted medical tasks, such as prescribing medication, taking blood tests and doing prostate checks while patients kept their pants on.

College of Physicians inspector Jean-Louis Granger says patients who continue to see him aren’t safe.

“He doesn’t have the knowledge and he doesn’t have the authorization from the government to treat people so they shouldn’t go.  We believe it’s dangerous,” Granger said. 

Montizambert's lawyer says he will continue to fight the accusations.

The court date should be known in September.

Montizambert  faced similar sanctions in 2002.

The lawyer representing the College of Physicians said because of those previous sanctions they will have a close watch on him.
