This doctor is semi retired and relies on fees from doing impairment/disability evaluations for WCB on a contract basis. He knows exactly what kind of rating WCB would like to avoid paying compensation so he acts as a shill for this organisation by remaining unaware of the medical history as required,carefully avoiding an examination of any area that may result in an impairment rating and not conducting the examination according to the required standards. Any Doctor who relies on contract fees of this sort should be considered in a "conflict of interest".

i agree with the first poster. firstly, there was dried blood on the wall. he barely looked at my child, and then quickly wrote a prescription for 4 days worth of antibiotics?? 4 days? weird. when i questioned him on how short of a period this was, he said, "ok" and scratched out 4 and put the #5. i asked if he should do a swab to test for strep FIRST? he said, "oh, good idea", but he blindly jabbed my child in the throat with the delicacy of a bull in a china shop. he might have been a good doctor is his day, but this fellow is not fit to practice medicine any more. the one good thing i can say is that, unlike the original poster, i did find him friendly to deal with.

This doctor should be retired, can hardly move - becomes defensive if patient asks questions and unwilling to refer for further testing. Unhygienic room - blood smeared on patient bench from previous patient.
