This is a common question for patients who injured while they were at work and now, are dealing with WSIB:
-“will WSIB receive a copy of your notes?”
A: if you provide us the WSIB number, we will send a copy of the notes to them. It takes sometimes, however your case worker would eventually get the notes. Another approach, and I believe the more appropriate one, is to talk to your case worker and let them know you had seen us. In this case, they will write a letter and request the information that they need. In this case, they would not ignore the information.
On 27Jan12, I received this comment that had really made my day. :)
I was your patient 2 years ago, you performed the RF treatment on me and told me the pain might stay away for up to 2 years. The 2 years were up this month and I have no pain yet.
I thank God every day for you that you could perform this treatment, thanks again to you, M. R. from Chatham
this is amazing. These results are "the fuel of my engine". When I hear that a patient had a year or two years of pain relief and could do things they could not do otherwise, I get the highest satisfaction feeling possible. THANK YOU M.R.
This is a comment that I received on 21Jan02:
do you treat cervical spine area---
bulging disks---touching in a nerve---c7
Yes I can provide diagnostic and therapeutic procedure for spine pain. You should remember that MRI or CT scan findings may not be the source of your symptoms. What had reported as “disk bulging”, may or may not be the reason for your suffering. This is where I can help. I can help the patient to find the source of the pain and treat that accordingly.
