Dr. Jakub Sawicki
Dr. Sawicki was passionate about helping patients with chronic pain and devoted himself to going above and beyond the standard of care. His compassion for people led him to become an Investigative Coroner as well as a Medical Assessor for the CPSO. These clinics were his pride and joy because he was able to give his patients their “normal” lives back.
He passed away in July 2022 after a relentless battle with stomach cancer. Dr Sawicki’s belief that everything will be ok if you look at life with optimism has become infectious and we hope that he left his mark on patients who have crossed his path.
