I am fortunate to be a pain patient and a pain doctor at the same time. My life experience as a pain patient qualifies me to understand pain struggle more than my education.
Here are some highlights of my practice and experience:
I am a Family Physician with focused practice in Chronic Pain. I am the founder and director of Toronto Poly Clinic Multi-disciplinary pain management center. I am a Lecturer with the University of Toronto DFCM as a clinical teacher. I am also a guest course contributor to Harvard Medical School department of Continuing Education.
Throughout my graduate training I have taken every opportunity to engage in research and various clinical placements. These included working with adults and children suffering from chronic pain in Atlanta Georgia, as well as in Chedoke Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario. In these settings, I have gained ample hands-on experience in facilitating group therapy sessions, case management, administering various intelligence and psychological assessments as well as working in multidisciplinary teams.
I have also disseminated the findings of my research at international meetings and conferences. Passionate about teaching and translating psychological science for undergraduate students, I am also a sessional psychology instructor (Introduction to Psychology) at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School for Continuing Education.
