“Tout simplement le meilleur medecin au monde! Il est tellement super compétent, sympatique et drôle. Je lui adore.+++” *****
“Amazing, very good listener and helpful doctor. I have once a muscles problem in my shoulder, he referred me to a physiotherapist in Montreal, and he refused to give me junk pills. I took me long time to cure, but I finally cured naturally and I can go back to my gym. I fully recommend him as a family doctor.” *****

“Wow! Super humain ! J’ai vu Dr Tozzi pour un premier rvs. J’ai fait une mamographie sur place. Un radiologiste a regardé les resultats sur le champ. Dr Tozzi a ensuite fait une echo et on a regardé tous les résultats ensembles! Super efficace et rassurant. Pas besoin d’attendre nos resultats chez nous, on les a live et il prend bien le temps de tous nous expliquer ! Wow wow et Re-wow !” *****
“Ce médecin est tout simplement dans une ligue à part. Jamais un médecin n’a pris 30 minutes pour m’expliquer une situation. Il est compréhensif et attentionné. Impressionnant.” *****
“I am leaving Dr Tozzi’s office, it is 10:05 and my appointement was supposed to be at 10:00! What efficiency and nothing hurried. Granted I arrived in advance but they welcomed me, did the mammo, the echo and the actual appointment in about 30 min… With the most genuine smile. What a great doc. And very reassuring. Bravo ! It’s great to meet a doc who care about his patients and remember things about them from previous appointments.” *****
“Great doctor! Respectful, thorough and flat-out kind. I feel taken care of. I am so lucky to be his patient. Above and beyond when it comes to making you feel like you exist and matter. Highly recommend him and trust him with my life.” *****

“Dr. Kalin is an excellent doctor. Takes the time to listen and really tries to help. It is clear from the way he treats the resident doctors who work at the clinic that he is simply a genuine good guy. Highly recommend.” *****
“Dr. Kalin has been my family doctor for quite some time now and never have I met a doctor with more patience than him. He’s kind, considerate and compassionate. He cares beyond words for his patients. Since opening Sante Kildare this is by far the best staff and clinic he has ever been in.” *****
“It is sometimes hard to believe doctors like this still exist. None of these reviews are an exaggeration – find out for yourself. He seems to have the magic to always make time, always be interested, always be in a good mood and always be reliable. He has 6 or 7 kids at home— wowza… how does he do it?!?!” *****
