Hi guys, my sister has an assessment with this fellow in the next few weeks. Anybody been to him ?.
This appointment does seem a bit premature as my sis is in week 2 of 12 with a pain psychologist and week 1 of 12 with TBI health. I do not think an OA at this stage will give a clear picture of her capabilities in regard to her injuries.

Original accident 2003 did rehab back to fulltime with previous employer by 2006 but L2-3 were damaged ...medically retired in March 2007.(although fusion of L4-5 done in 2004) L2-S1 fused in July last year and ended up in Auck hospital 7 days (2 days after discharge) with hematoma, resulted in having whole site opened up and "curette/lavaged out".

ACC have not been at all interested in any meaningful rehab and now she is under the "Long Term" unit we have all this action!!!!, I think it is a biut stressful and a lot to be doing.

Your thoughts please???
