OUR DOCTOR – DIRECTOR OF CLINICAL OPERATIONS

Our team leader brings to us his 34 years of clinical experience which includes 12 years of medical research in the field of neck injuries, 25 years of sports-injury rehabilitation and eight years of medicine studies in two USA-based medical schools.

Dr. Rice heads the Ontario Research Medical Group, an international clinical research group specializing in international-based research requirements for the manufacturing and government licensing of medical devices and new clinical treatments in the field of sports medicine.

 

Dr Rice is newly appointed as Associate Dean of Medicine for the American University of Montserrat [AUM] Faculty of Medicine.

 

The AUM is a newly chartered medical school in Montserrat, British Virgin Islands. He is also a professor in the MD degree program. The international medical school is WHO registered. Graduate MD students can do their rotations and residencies in the USA, Canada and the UK.

 

We are happy to have him on-board, leading the way to the future of pain relief using Better Call Doc's proprietary and unique formulary of physical therapy methods. He has developed the Pain Therapy Practitioner [PTP] certification. This program is based upon his international involvement in pain research as well as his 12 years working with international television shopping network medical device testing, clinical trials and endorsements.

Dr. Rice is author of a medical self-help book entitled Sexy Back. This book's premise is on chronic lower back pain. It has all the makings of a medical self-help but is written with patient entertainment in mind. The premise of Sexy Back uses either sexercises as the medicine to fix chronic back pain.

Better Call Doc was created with the trainer in mind. The clinical and therapy practice is designed to extend trainers the certification to treat patients with acute or chronic NMS (neuro-muscular-skeletal) pain. The program educates & trains the student 22 treatment disciplines. These formularies are delivered in a specialized clinical pattern unique to Dr. Rice's years of experience as a clinician.
