I was sent to him through wcb,I was never humiliated so much before in my life.he pretty well told me I was a liar about my pain and told me to go back to work.i have been off work for almost 5 years with chronic pain which he calls ordinary back pain.if you go to him on your own he probably is a great doctor but when he is being pain by wcb look out he is very mean and does not care about the person.i would never recommend him to anyone I know.
Dr Koshi is only one of many Dr's working in various pain clinics in this province. If you are sent to see him as a CIME by either workman's comp, or an insurance company for an exam regarding a claim---PLEASE GO AND READ THIS ARTICLE FIRST. www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/the-myth-of-the-independent-medical-exam. I wish I had read it before I went. Please, Please read this article..
Dr.Koshi came highly recommended to me by two friends whom he has helped. I suffered for five years with chronic back and leg pain. When I went to see Dr. Koshi (not with WCB) as a private patient for my assesment, I found him to be very compasionate and interested in what I had to say about my experience with pain and the negative changes it had made in my life. He was very open and honest about what he could do to help me and what to expect from his treatment. He left the choice up to me to have him do the treatment or have it done at the hospital. I have been waiting for over a year to hear from the hospital for a appointment. I made the choice to get my life back now instead of waiting for the hospital to call. Since I had my treatments from Dr. Koshi I have been pain free . I am able to finally go for walks again,do yoga,drive my car and get back to normal. Dr. Koshi also called me to check and see how I was doing and answered all my questions I had for him. He has a very gentle manner about him. I never at anytime felt rushed or pressured into making my decision. I have no regrets with my choice. I would highly recomend him to anyone.
I was referred to Dr. Koshi by WCB. He talked over me and tried to make me feel comfortable (but not in a good way) . he must have some kind of a recording device in his rooms as he wrote 15 pages about me and used the words "she complained" 56 times times during the report. After reading his report I do not trust him and he is all for WCB
I was injured on the job in june of 2014 thank god for the wcb workers and Dr Koshi after the first visit he relieved over half the pain by doing injections in my pinformis muscle as well as the joint. He is continuing to help me be pain free just last week I had the radio frequency treatment although it is painful it gives me hope to being pain free. Dr. Koshi and his staff are some of the most caring people I have met. The workers at wcb have been able to get me the right help for my injury. Dr. Koshi does not work for the wcb and they send people there to get help and relief for their injuries. Thank You for all who are trying to help me
I have spent over 25 years in pain due to multiple back injuries, I have seen more specialists then i care to say in multiple provinces, Last year i was sent to see Dr Koshi to treat my facet joints as reccomended by a doctor in Moncton, He treated me and also reccomeded that i have my SI joint done as well, These teatments are very painful buit he is a caring man with a excellent staff and i feel privaliged to have him looking after me, I am now almost pain free thanks to him.
DrKoshi says he does not work for WCB yet WCB sends the bulk of their long term clients to see him which he immediately says they are ready to go back to the job regardless of the pain they are experiencing. Offered no suggestions how to lower my pain, only in it to give WCB the evaluation they wanted to deny my claim. He made a huge deal about not taping the evaluation (which only lasted 15mins) and refused to give me what his opinion was. I was not surprised to find that he suggested that I return to work although I've been suffering for 4 years with pain.
Great man with excellent skill and knowledge. Couldnt have had a better doctor to help me and make me feel comfortable about the procedure he has done. Thanks you so much Dr Koshi you rock :-). Keep up the great work.
