Parce que la gratitude est la mémoire du cœur, je me dois d’exprimer ma reconnaissance à l’équipe interprofessionnelle exceptionnelle de la clinique du sein de l’hôpital Montfort. Elle est composée, entre autres, d’une infirmière navigatrice, de chirurgiens doués, de radiologistes spécialisés, d’une travailleuse sociale, d’une psychologue et d’un physiothérapeute. Ce personnel hors pair, inoculé par une importante dose d’empathie, de respect et d’écoute m’a offert une approche holistique, en m’accompagnant à chaque étape du processus médical, allant du dépistage, en passant par la biopsie, le diagnostique, la chirurgie, les soins post-opératoires et les suivis subséquents, jusqu’au transfert du dossier à un oncologue de l’Hôpital Général. Le tout était adapté à mes besoins, dans la langue de mon choix, ce qui a été d’un grand réconfort pour mon conjoint et moi. Je souligne particulièrement, l’expertise du Dr Benoit St-Jean, qui soit dit en passant compte parmi les meilleurs chirurgiens de la région. Il m’a inspiré confiance dès la première rencontre et il m’a expliqué succinctement et clairement à quoi m’attendre, me permettant ainsi de mieux contrôler mon stresse et de prendre des décisions éclairées. Il est allé au-delà de mes attentes, en faisant des suivis assidus (parfois en soirée et même la fin de semaine) pour s’enquérir de mon état de santé. Cette démarche fut particulièrement appréciée parce qu’elle réduisait la période d’attente, qui nous paraît souvent interminable quand on vit des moments d’angoisse. Quant à son adjointe, Suzanne et l’infirmière Chantal St-Gelais, et bien d’autres, elles sont de véritables perles. Bien que je ne souhaite à personne de vivre les traumatismes associés à un diagnostique de cancer, je n’hésiterais aucunement à recommander à qui que ce soit de faire affaire avec l’équipe prodigieuse de l’Hôpital Montfort. Encore une fois, Merci ! Danielle Carrière-Paris

Dr. Benoit St-Jean at the Montfort Hospital and the ostomy team saved my husband's life! I had many surgeries and good surgeons but I discovered what an exceptional and extraordinary surgeon is when my husband had 5 surgeries done by Dr. St-Jean. 3 of these surgeries were emergency operations because of a rare and life threatening inflection called Fournier's Gangrene. After six months of ups and downs as the results of major debridements, a colostomy and lastly the reversal of the colostomy, my husband’s health has completely recovered. Dr. St-Jean is not only an extremely knowledgeable, skillful and talented surgeon, he is also very dedicated, empathetic, friendly, approachable, accessible, trustworthy, punctual, and his bedside manners are exemplary. Being a good listener, he always took all the time needed to answer honestly and concisely to our numerous questions. We were always kept in the loop. He always made sure we had all the facts, there was so sugar coating the situation. His passion to help my husband recover from this ordeal was transparent Furthermore, there is a saying that behind every great man there is a great woman. Well this would be his assistant Suzanne. She is empathetic, accessible, kind, friendly and very efficient. She listened to our concerns and always shared them with Dr St-Jean. She always returned our calls as soon as possible. She was of great help during these last 6 months. Lastly, this amazing, passionate and down to earth surgeon works with an exceptional ostomy team. Valérie and Carole were also very empathetic, friendly, kind, devoted professionals that made the VAC treatment and the emotional trauma of having a colostomy more bearable. Thank you Dr. St-Jean and thank you to all the members of your team for your excellent care. “Merci” is a very small word to express our sincere gratitude. You are all assets to the Montfort Hospital. If I ever need a surgeon, you and your team at the Montfort will be number one on my list. Suzanne and Jacques Bonneville ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mon mari est en vie aujourd’hui grâce aux excellents soins reçus du Dr Benoit St-Jean et de l’équipe de stomie à l’hôpital Montfort. J’ai eu plusieurs opérations et de bons chirurgiens dans ma vie, mais ce n’est que lors des 5 chirurgies de mon mari dont 3 de celles-ci étaient des opérations d’urgences à la suite d’une infection très agressive et souvent mortelle (Gangrène de Fournier), que j’ai vu la différence entre un bon chirurgien et un excellent chirurgien. Après six mois difficiles, ayant vécu des hauts et des bas à cause des débridements, de la colostomie et dernièrement, le renversement de la colostomie, la santé de mon mari est maintenant complètement rétablie. Dr St-Jean est non seulement un chirurgien compétent, minutieux et dévoué, il est aussi passionné d’aider ses patients tout au long de leur guérison. Son empathie, son humanisme, son accessibilité, sa ponctualité (il respecte toujours son horaire), sa fiabilité (ce qu’il dit, il le fait), sa personnalité, son sens d’humour, son accueil, ses manières de chevet sont exemplaires et font de lui un modèle pour sa profession. En plus d’écouter et de répondre à nos nombreuses questions, il nous donnait toujours l’heure juste. Il n’a jamais été question de tourner autour du pot. Ces réponses et ses conseils ont toujours été très clairs et précis. Sa passion de voir au bien-être de son patient et de ses proches était transparente. De plus, comme le dit le dicton : derrière tout grand homme il y a une grande femme! Ici, il s’agit bien de Suzanne, son adjointe administrative. Suzanne est toujours souriante, empathique, accessible, aimable et très efficace. Elle écoute nos inquiétudes et elle les partage toujours avec Dr St-Jean. Elle donne toujours suite aux appels dans le plus bref des délais. Grâce à Suzanne, ces derniers mois ont été un peu plus supportables. Dernièrement et non moindre, Dr St-Jean travaille avec une équipe exceptionnelle responsable des pansements VAC et des stomies. Valérie et Carole, avec leur sourire, leur empathie, leur délicatesse, leur dévouement et leur professionnalisme ont su rendre les traitements plus faciles à vivre. Merci, Dr St-Jean, et merci aussi à tous les membres de l’équipe pour vos excellents soins. À vrai dire, merci, est un bien petit mot pour vous exprimer toute notre gratitude. Vous êtes tous des atouts pour l’hôpital Montfort. Si un jour, j’ai besoin d’un chirurgien, Dr St-Jean et l’hôpital Montfort seront mon premier choix. Suzanne et Jacques Bonneville.

Dr. St-Jean performed surgery on me in April and he has been my doctor since then. I found him to be an extremely compassionate and knowledgeable doctor! Whenever you need an appointment with him, you are booked right away and you don't have to wait for a long time. Dr. St-Jean and his staff are an excellent team. We are fortunate to have him in Ottawa. Thank you Dr. St-Jean for everything you have done for me and continue to do! I highly recommend this Doctor!

I'm glad I had Dr St-Jean for my surgery. I read the reviews on him prior and they're all true, plus I have a friend who had her breast cancer successfully removed by him as well. He was very friendly, respectful, and caring. His staff was great and friendly as well. My procedure went well, the only complaint that I have is that the sedation didn't really work that well on me, but he was aware of that and tried his very best to keep/make me comfortable, which I greatly appreciated. I was so amazed that he was on time, because you normally have to wait for doctors, and waiting creates anxiety. I would highly recommend him. I know if I ever need any other work done, I'm asking for him. Thank you Dr St-Jean, and thank you to all your staff as well. Great experience at the Montfort Hospital! 5 stars all the way!

Dr, St-Jean was fantastic. He understood my needs and was very accomodating with respect to my anxiety issues for a sigmoidoscopie. Honestly this procedure went as well as could be thanks to his excellent care and that of the Montfort hospital staff.

Dr. St Jean has performed 6 surgeries on me for crohns disease over the last few years. He saved my life more than once. There are so many words of admiration for him and I thank God I met him when I did. His staff and colleagues are the best of the best! The Monfort hospital staff are amazing! It's a wonderful feeling to be treated as a person and not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. St Jean in a heartbeat... definitely 5 stars!!
