When the Canadian Healthcare System Hasn’t Worked for You
Are you a Canadian citizen suffering from pain? If so, have you been told some very bad news – like that you need to wait a year to see a qualified pain management specialist, or that it will be 6 months until you can get even a quick epidural steroid injection? We know the pain of dealing with the Canadian healthcare system, and we know that pain is almost as bad as the condition that’s caused you to seek care in the first place.
You have the option to travel to the Seattle area to be treated right away by a double-board-certified pain medicine subspecialist physician, Dr. Jason Attaman. Our pain-management practice is located in Bellevue, WA. Patients come from all across the US, Canada, and beyond for treatment by Dr. Attaman. Often, they visit our practice when they have exhausted other options and simply need to get a handle on the pain. The one-time inconvenience of driving or flying here is small compared to the pain.
We can diagnose your pain issues, obtain diagnostic imaging, and perform pain-reducing injections in a matter of a few days, rather than the few months it would take you to receive that same healthcare (or less) in Canada.We have an imaging center nearby that can perform diagnostic MRIs, CT scans, and x-rays for a reasonable cash price. (MRIs typically cost around 500 USD.) We can provide you with medical letters of necessity to help with crossing the US-Canada border. We also perform consultations via telemedicine, for your convenience.
