Care Philosophy

After 10 years of attempting to manage chronic pain with opioids I have discovered that patients are suffering more from the treatment than from the pain. Trying to reduce a patient's dependence on chronic opioid therapy is not a service that they appreciate as you can see from some of the scathing reviews. The medical profession got this one wrong - opioids in high doses increase pain and lower quality of life. If you are dependent or addicted to opioids I can help you get your life back again.

I've been with Dr Whiting for over 4 years and he has been the most kind, caring and understanding doctor I have ever met. I can always get ahold of him and his staff if needed and I am never neglected. He's changed my life for the better!

Waiting does not believe in pain management. If your one of thousands who had back surgery and are now regulated to a life of pain he won't help you he has become the hatchet man for Dirne/Heritage Health removing pretty much everyone from pain medication.
