Ratings for Dr. Kerry Mothersill
At the request of the WCB I attended Dr. Mothersill's office for an IME. This undoubtedly was one of the most biased consultations that I have ever experienced. He certainly provided the report that the WCB was looking for. How unprofessional!
I was assessed by Dr. Mothersill during the 'independent' examination process and it was an unpleasant experience, to say the least. I found Dr. Mothersill's bedside manner to be awkward and abrupt. This might have been forgivable if it wasn't for Dr. Mothersill's final report, which I found to be extremely biased and riddled with errors. In my opinion, Dr. Mothersill omitted a great deal of crucial information that was helpful to my case from my interview, medical treatment notes and test results. He also misquoted a number of treatment notes to my detriment. Dr. Mothersill represents himself as an expert in chronic pain, yet he misspelled the names of common conditions and sometimes gave incorrect names. He did this even when copying from doctors' reports. I felt so strongly about my experience that I made a complaint to the College of Alberta Psychologists. I will not gain anything from making a complaint (my case has settled), but I would like to help others avoid a negative experience. I believe Independent Examiners should be unbiased and have exemplary expertise. If you feel that you have been treated improperly, you can make a complaint. The process is simple and easy to follow. The website address for the College of Alberta Psychologists is www.cap.ab.ca . **I would like to emphasize this review is my opinion and I plan to participate fully in the complaint process in order to prove it.
As all the other reviews say it here. Works for WCB, horribly manners (answered his phone 3 times), Showed him all the evidence support my facts. Then when i called the office and asked to review his results. I got sent around in circles for 2 weeks then told to call my WCB case manager then told "those files are currently under review, we will let you know when their released". ANYONE that sent to deal with him.. DENY it you have that right.. Also file a complaint with the collage of Physician's . Link is below. This guy is horrible. http://www.cpsa.ca/complaints/
AWFUL STAY AWAY!! This man makes his living off of finding ways to facilitate WCB Alberta's agenda. He is awful in principles and morals. Would not even want to speculate as to his medical knowledge as he only spent 5 minutes with me and then left to fill out questions after questions as I sat in a little crappy office watching miserable staff members pace the halls and grab coffees. No this man is a joke and is involved in being a pawn for many different government agencies not just WCB his whole career. Going to see him will not help you in anyway he is only there to use any little bit of information he can get from you that will help WCB squash your claim. Beware and remember you are dealing with a highly educated psychopath who's only agenda is to line his pockets at the taxpayers expense and patient be dammed... AWFUL STAY AWAY!!
He was late by 10 minutes, asked all of the WCB questions as per their process, accessed the questionnaire's based on WCB's assessment process. Didn't have my file and hadn't read it prior to the interview. Wouldn't let me finish answering his questions, and got so many details wrong in his written report that is is laughable and shouldn't be allowed to be used. He also had to leave 10 minutes early. He totally disagrees with another psychologist that I've been seeing for over a year, who is also WCB assigned, but at least she has some ethics. I can't rate him on his knowledge but if I could rate him on how close he was in accessing me as a person... he gets a negative.
He is a wcb joke found out after seeing him for head injury said I have coffee addiction and old stress four months after seeing him and getting cut off by wcb I'm still suffering from dizziness do not see this useless doctor total waste off time
This Dr should quit. He is a WCB consultant. He is not fair. He is not objective. Beware of using this Dr for any reason. Period.
I saw Dr. Mothersill for several months in order to work on depression through a CBT approach. While he was one of the nicest people I've ever interacted with, his insight was not novel. He was a good listener, and for a while, it was helpful for me to vent. However, did he actually help me? Unfortunately, no. I was given some information on cognitive distortions, some photocopies of chapters from a very popular self-help book, and some worksheets to do thought records. Honestly, it didn't help me much. Sessions seemed to drag on without goal or hopes of achieving anything. I started seeing a psychologist at Calgary Counselling Centre for $10/hr and it was much more helpful even in the first session than all the months with Dr. Mothersill.
Letter sent to him by human resources.I finally got a copy . He pretty well found all they wanted and he works for THEM. Poor listening skills, testers rushed you, had to ask for a break, Tried to think HE was specialist- he knows zip of physical illness!I think he needs therapy. Arrogant, condescending and deceitful.Seems to value one on wealth not humanity.NEVER GO TO HIM , ITS A TRAP to see him. Won't allow YOU to ask questions, then accuses you of not comprehending how to do written section! No one was around! So he chose to AD LIB.Information on results written I had never told him! But noted work place wrote it! So in fact he just does what they want. He knows who is paying his practice! Brought doctor notes , character note all saying I was fine, his results said I brought them to try to not accept my guilt! One sided he is, and that people is only for the company paying him! Zero respect for him!
Like walking into a mouse trap. No receptionist. Dr. Seemed to have his own agenda in mind. Added to this his beliefs were all that counted. He had no concept of physical disability but used it as a leverage to show could be not quite with it. Staff I thought nice, but first day tested admitted if we got done, could have next day off for her fiance! So Rushed. NEVER laugh, never joke, as that is taken as having a problem. Hardly saw him, but quick to judge on my coping mechanisms. Info sent to him in letter obviously one sided, yes doc I read the copy! He does not confer with specialists, just feels he knows it all! He works for my employee and I do not feel he is impartial at all! he knows where his bucks come from! I would not recommend him to anyone! To me he is self centered and egotistic! Nice to your face and stabs you in the back big time. Oh and day 2,staff in and out ( he was not there) so hard to ask questions, so he just adlibed to what he felt! WARNING DO NOT GO THERE!
