My name is Dr. Wayne Phimister. I trained in Aberdeen, Scotland as a MD and Family Physician before working in the North East of Scotland and New Zealand before settling in BC. I have worked in Agassiz for 9 years as a full serviced GP with a variety of roles including delivering babies, doing daily hospital rounds in Chilliwack, performing house calls, hospice visits and acting as medical director of 2 nursing homes for a short period of time. I taught UBC medical students and family medicine residents in the role of Assistant Clinical Professor.
My practice is now focused on pain management in the Fraser Valley where I assess and treat with trigger point injections, postural alignment correction, cognitive behavioural therapy and provide insight to the mind-body connection on how to heal from pain. I provide education and hope to those looking for solutions for chronic pain.
I now teach trigger point injections to students, residents, GPs as well as online courses to further enhance skills of doctors around the world looking for solutions for patients in chronic pain.
