Our philosophy and treatment techniques
Exception MD was established to offer the finest healthcare services, without wait times and using the most innovative and advanced techniques.
Established and managed by doctor Jean-Paul Brutus, pioneer in endoscopic surgery, Exception MD favours a minimally invasive treatment approach. Their methods offer relief from pain, a faster recovery time and return to regular activities that are all much faster than with conventional techniques.
The clinic is a modern environment that meets the highest standards of comfort and safety. Most treatments are done on the premises in an operating room equipped with the latest technology. The highly qualified nursing staff ensures that each patient receives attentive, professional and caring service.
Geographical distance can be an impediment to certain specialized treatment services. Travel issues or shortage of time can complicate the process of arranging an appointment.
Exception MD gives its patients the option* of an online (Skype) appointment or follow-ups from the comfort and privacy of their own homes or personal physician’s office. This is the easiest, most direct and rapid way to gain access to a surgical specialist without travel time or the disruption of professional or personal schedules.
*Availability of this service depends on the doctor, the nature of the medical issue, and the treatment or surgery required.
Prices and financing
At Exception MD, our priority is to provide the highest quality services without wait times and under the best possible conditions.
The treatments and services provided by Exception MD are not covered by Quebec’s provincial medicare plan. Our fees are not incidental charges added to the use of the medical insurance card; that practice is formally forbidden. However, an insurance company could contribute to the private care costs of an individual on disability leave to ensure complete healing. Most insurance companies in Quebec have had dealings with private clinics, including ExceptionMD.
A growing number of companies and insurers are seeing the benefits of private medical services and agreeing to cover the costs of those treatments. Short wait times, prompt treatment and effective treatment methods can cut recovery time and disability periods considerably, which means a speedier return to productivity and significantly lower impairment.
We encourage our patients to ask their employer or insurer for financial assistance. It is a winning solution for everyone!
Exception MD acknowledges the value of a collaborative approach and maintains close ties with rehabilitation specialists. Dr. Brutus is frequently invited to lecture at conferences and training sessions for health professionals and also regularly accommodate occupational therapists and physiotherapists in the operating room.
