NA in Toronto

I found a doctor in Toronto to do the needle thing and my family doctor referred me to him today. I don't think he's allowed to treat patients outside Canada. Information below for those interested. My condition is in the early stages so I don't know if I'm eligible yet. Will keep y'all posted. I'm a bass and guitar player and dread the day it attacks my left hand. Hopefully never, though odds are it will. Cheers

Treatment in Canada

I emailed Dr. Binhammer to ask him if he would accept me as a patient for my Dupuytren's contracture.

He wrote:

"Sorry but I do not treat American patients unless it is an emergency.( The Canadian malpractice insurance carrier does not allow treating foreign patients unless it is an emergency.) I do not know of anyone who does percutaneous release in the United States."

Dr. *** NOT trained by makers of NA !!!!



!!!!!!!!!!!! BEWARE !!!!!!!!

Verify the qualifications of any NA practitioner. To do so, check the Forum at www.dupuytren.org then contact the association directly. The questions I asked were:

a)Was Dr. ** trained in NA by your association? They referred me to the list of doctors who were trained and
DR **'s name was **NOT** on it

b) Is this taught any where else? No.

c)Is Dr. ** a recognized NA practitioner? Again, I was told that only the people on the list are recognized.

d)Who is qualified and allowed to teach NA? The list did not include Dr. F.

Review threads on French Forum dated: 02/05/04, 02/05/04 (translation of subject heading for 02/05/04 post) & 01/08/04, contact the association yourself.

How did I figure it out??? No one has been complimenting Dr **'s work. Think about it...everyone here is singing the praises of Dr.Eaton...no one is saying anything about
Dr *** There is a reason...

Go with who is listed on the French Forum....anything else and you are not assured of a qualifed NA practitioner.

Sharon,

Why don't you keep your self-serving propaganda out of this forum? You are misleading ailing individuals that are here to seek help, not SNAKE-OIL treatments for D/C.
