Demetra Horotan, NP

Primary care nurse practicioner

I am pleased to introduce myself as Demetra Horotan, an experienced nurse practitioner (licensed in Quebec and Ontario) with a strong background in adult medicine, obstetrics and paediatrics; A graduate of McGill University and winner of several performance awards, I bring to my practice a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of healthcare. Having worked in the emergency room of one of Montreal’s busiest hospitals, my areas of expertise include emergency medicine, dermatology and family medicine.

I am passionate about providing holistic medical care to clients of all ages, tailoring treatment plans to meet their specific needs. My passion for medicine and our desire to make healthcare more accessible led my partner and I to create one of the first nurse practitioner clinics at the Jewish General Hospital. Beyond the walls of medicine, I am passionate about fitness.

My sporting experiences have taught me discipline, perseverance and teamwork, which have proved invaluable in my career. It is important to note that health is not just the absence of disease, but also the pursuit of vitality and well-being.

Shirley Destin, NP

Primary care nurse practicioner

Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Shirley Destin, a nurse practitioner with extensive experience in primary care. Originally from Florida, I moved to Quebec/Montreal 15 years ago to pursue a new career. I hold bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing, as well as a post-graduate diploma as a primary care nurse practitioner from McGill University.

I gained my professional experience in hospitals and clinics, as well as in long-term care facilities for the elderly. I have expertise in various fields, including family medicine, emergency medicine and geriatrics. As well as being one of the first nurse practitioners to provide services to retirement homes in Montreal, I have also been involved in major projects aimed at improving access to and the efficiency of healthcare in Quebec. For example, my partner and I played a major role in establishing the first nurse practitioner emergency referral clinic at the Jewish General Hospital.

I am particularly interested in women’s and men’s health, vulnerable populations and the elderly. I strive to empower my patients to make informed decisions about their health through health education. When I’m not in uniform or at the hospital or clinic, I like to travel, cook, exercise and put a smile on the faces of my friends and family.
