Doctor admits to smoking pot, having sex with patients in office

Toronto Star 
(Written by Marco Chown Oved, quoting Wendy Moore Mandel)
May 5, 2015

"The CPSO can't just issue a restriction and trust the doctor to follow it . . . In my opinion, patients of Dr. Tadros had a right to know about the gender-based restrictions on the doctor's licence and that right to know imparts a responsibility on the College of Physicians and Surgeons to effectiively educate the public."

Personal Injury Law and the Importance of Specialization
Toronto Metro - Q&A with Wendy Moore Mandel
September 17, 2014

Catastrophic injury cases are complex and therefore, require a lawyer who is equipped to deal with all the different components - the medical issues concerning the specific injury, the prediction of future needs and calculation of economic losses, and the interactions between insurance systems, no-fault, civil tort, and private disability, to name a few . . . 





Hi Wendy,

We would like to send you our special thanks for all your help in our son's case. When the accident happened we were all lost and didn't know which way to turn. You helped us get all the support we needed in order for him to have a great recovery and peace of mind for the rest of his life.

We will never forget all your wonderful support.

Thank you from all our hearts,

Florentina and family



Dear Wendy,

I had another lawyer who wasn't getting the job done and so I called you at Thomson Rogers.

You got me the help I needed.

I was very well taken care off and I am so very pleased with the way I was treated, like a King.

I am very happy with the final outcome and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Yours truly,

D. King



Dear Wendy,

I am writing to you to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have given Dylan and my family more than just some money for his future…you gave me a chance to finally put this behind us once and for all.

I have been angry for quite some time for what happened to Dylan – even though he healed and believe me I was thankful for that; but, I was not able to get over the feelings of no accountability for the trials we had to overcome.

Now, with your help, I can put this awful ordeal away. I am truly grateful for what you have done. You have done what most lawyers did not care to do; you got restitution for his injury.

Thank you,

- D. Myers
