If you have been referred

Your physician has referred you to the Wasser Pain Management Centre. The Wasser Pain Management Centre is an outpatient adult treatment, education and research facility. We are located in Mount Sinai Hospital, 600 University Avenue, Toronto Ontario. 

Your referring physician will provide you with a patient intake package for our Centre. This package provides us with valuable information about your pain condition and must be completed and returned to us before we can schedule any appointments.  

It is a requirement of our Centre that all patients be under the care of a family physician who is willing to participate in their ongoing pain management.            


  1. Please complete the patient intake package given to you by your physician and keep a copy for your records.
  2. Return the completed intake package to the Wasser Pain Management Centre either by mail, in person or via courier.
  3. After we receive all of the required documentation, your file will be reviewed and your referring physician will be notified of your appointment date and time. 
    Please note that it may take 2-4 months after receipt of all documentation to receive an appointment. 
  4. Your initial appointment will be for assessment only and will be 1 to 1½ hours in length.
  5. We will provide assessment and recommendations only for those patients who live outside of the Greater Toronto area.
  6. It is necessary for you to bring your health card and Mount Sinai card (obtained in the admitting department on the main floor) to all of your appointments.
  7. Bring all prescribed medication in the original bottle to your appointments.

If you have any questions about your referral please contact your referring physician.
