ICBC Tip-of-the-Month (June 2015): Top 10 Mistakes (#6)


Mistake #6: You Attend an ICBC-Appointed Doctor Without Seeing Your Own Medical Specialist

ICBC often uses the same medical specialists. Sometimes, those specialists prepare written reports for ICBC that may well help your case, but you won't know this because ICBC claims privilege over the reports.  Those specialists may well prepare reports that hurt your case.  

Seek legal advice if ICBC asks you to see its chosen specialist. In 2014, these are examples of the doctors that ICBC often used:

  • Dr. Martin Grypma (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Petar Kokan (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Rehan Dost (neurologist)
  • Dr. Stephen Maloon (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Bishop (family doctor with interest in orthopaedics)
  • Dr. Sovio (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Leith (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Reebye (orthopaedic surgeon)
  • Dr. Levin (psychiatrist)

This information, along with other specialists used by ICBC can be found at ICBC's website where they detail their vendor payments. You can also compare the specialists MSP billings, which is readily available to the public.
