"My association with Goldsmith Medical goes back over ten years. I first worked with them when the place I was Director of Care, Carlingview Manor, had four residents who required dialysis trips three times per week. I would watch them sit and wait for their transportation to pick them up with sad faces and ready for a long trip as they were not the only folks travelling on the transport service being provided. I realized quickly that this had to change.
I researched and discovered that the Ministry (under the high-intensity program) pays for transportation for dialysis residents, and I followed the process and eventually met with Goldsmith Medical. I watched the transformation in the dialysis residents as they went from sadly waiting for their ride to sitting waiting at the front door for the friendly driver from Goldsmith. At Christmas time, that friendly driver made a trip to see the Christmas lights for these dialysis residents on their return trip to Carlingview Manor and had Christmas pictures taken of every one of them. Since then, I continue to watch a team of drivers who consistently treat the residents with respect and dignity at both Peter D Clark and Villa Marconi.
Oh, by the way, the "driver' that I met at Carlingview Manor was Gordon Goldsmith. He continues to train his team with customer service standards that meet and exceed every expectation that I adhere to myself for dignified and quality resident care.

"We have used the service of the great people of Goldsmith Medical Transportation when my 74-year-old mom broke her ankle. The people were ABSOLUTELY superb, great service, extremely cordial and well organized. We had to transport my mom several times back and forth from the hospital, they waited, they carried her up and down several flights of stairs. they are amazing angels."
“Integrity, dignity, safety, punctuality, compassion and a big smile, all delivered by a team of consummate professionals, that’s Goldsmith Medical Transport! Over the years, our family has chosen Goldsmith exclusively for all their transport needs. We feel a true “peace of mind” when they show up, knowing, without hesitation, that we’ll be well taken care of. Their attention to detail is evident from the well-groomed team, the spotless vehicles and exceptional focus on the customer. Love is what we feel when those guys come through the door! Thank YOU!!!”

"Goldsmith is the best medical transport! I call them an average of twice a week in the last two years. They have never let me down this far. They have even gotten me out of a jam a few times with last-minute transport. The service is excellent, professional and I can really count on Goldsmith for the safe transport of my patients.

"We just wanted to let you know how much your team helped my husband and me. This was my husband's first Chemo treatment. We were very nervous, and both were fighting off anxiety. Then a friend suggested using Goldsmith Medical Patient Service (pick up & drop-offs). All we have to say is thank you, thank you, thank you! Talking to you and using your service, my husband and I had two outstanding experiences. We didn't have to worry about parking or finding the place that we had to be at. Your team member picked us up and was very pleasant and cheerful, and brought us to our Chemo treatment on time at the General. We would highly recommend your service to anyone that requires transportation to and from their appointments, and we now have you on speed dial. Thank you again."
