Bellesmere is exactly what you need when you go to a clinic! The receptionists are very professional, helpful and polite and accommodating! The wait time was non-existent and they followed all COVID protocols! 5 stars!
My father had to have an ultrasound & x-rays on both his knees. The receptionist was very friendly and understanding that we were late due to traffic. My father is hard of hearing and has dementia. Both Nisa (ultrasound) and Saima (X-rays) were not only very professional and pleasant, they were extremely understanding and helpful. They let me stay with my dad to keep him feeling comfortable (while observing Covid distancing). Unfortunately I wasn't feeling great and had to sit down and they offered me water right away! My father and I left having a very positive experience. I wish more medical facility employees were as friendly!
Feb 6, 2021 I went for my ultrasound. Celine who was assisting me on my procedures was fantastic, educational and very gentle. I never felt the irritation, she explained to me which makes me less nervous. In my next procedure I still want to her to do my procedures.
Saima (working as both receptionist AND technician) really took care of my partner and I, we needed time sensitive xrays done, and she took us both in without an appointment even tho they were booked up! Fantastic service with a smile, couldn't recommend them more.
The receptionist Jill and Doctor on duty at the Brimley X ray clinic went above and beyond for me. I had been running around to multiple clinics to get an x ray for the past 3 days and due to COVID no one had accurate hours as to when they would be closed for the day. Although the Brimley clinic is also operating on reduced hours for COVID (2pm weekdays) I called around 1:40pm and they allowed me to still get my X-ray done quickly and efficiently even though I arrived at 2:03. It was a great help that they did not immediately turn me away. Thank you Jill!
The entire experience from start to finish was pleasant. Arrived on my time and had my xray finished and out the door. I would like to also point out the lady doing my xray had to cover the receptionist as well and she did it efficiently. Great experience. 👍
Rude and unfroffesional behavior of front desk staff
My name is John Boda I am the spouse of complainant Rebekkal John Boda.
My wife was referred for X Ray imaging for her back pain to your institution
Marksteels Medical Imaging (X Ray & Ultrasound)
She was there as per the referral time schedule which was yesterday the 28th of January 2021. Her health card could not be renewed due to the Covid19 situation and, as such she had no issues at other places where ever she has been taking treatment. It is just that she could not get it renewed due to current situation.She does not want to go out because of her medical condition.
The front desk was informed about this. However they demanded her to make payment. She told them politely that she was not asked money wherever she has been taking treatment recently. Still they insisted she paid, when my wife told them she did not have money, she was rudely told to pay $50 or get lost. She told them she does not have, then they told her to pay what ever she can pay. When she asked them when she would get the money back, they told her it could take as long as the card is not renewed and they are not concerned about it. The staff was so unprofessional that they literally bullied her and threatened her they would call cops if she does not leave immediately! It was like literally pushing her out of the clinic!
When she told them this is not fair, they were rude and refused to take her and insulted her in front of few more people waiting It was freezing cold out side, but she had no choice. She called me to let me know the situation. I asked my wife to call her doctor who referred her to this facility. After that she left, but on her way back she called family doctor's office to inform the way she was treated at your facility. Seems family doctor got in touch with the facility and talked to the concerned.
Wife was on the way home after that horrible experience. While she was on TTC on her way back she got a call from the felicity requesting her to come bac

Bellesmere is an excellent centre. The receptionists are professional, polite and helpful. I like that whenever you leave a message or send an email, they always get back to you promptly.
They are also accommodating-- you never have to wait for an appointment or wait more than a few minutes to get in.
In addition, they make sure to follow COVID protocols, so you do not at all uncomfortable.
It's really a great place!!!
