“For about 20 years, due to a herniated disc and stenosis, I experienced debilitating back pain which limited my ability to do many normal tasks. I took pain killers and was offered surgery which I declined due to its potential side effects. In 2017 at age 64, I was introduced to Marcel by a friend and began DDPY. At the end of 3 months with only one workout per week, my back pain was much improved, and I no longer needed pain killers. After 6 months, the pain was gone. Today, DDPY continues to be part of my personal plan for continuing good health.” (M.C.)
"I was staring down a dark path of increasing pain and loss of mobility, as many people with chronic conditions often face. Dr. Doré's fitness instruction and advice has made an enormous difference for me by helping me to regain strength and mobility, and now I am determined to continue to improve. Dr. Doré is a kind, qualified and experienced practitioner whose candid goal is to help people by making their quality of life better. Thanks to Dr. Doré for making my quality of life better." (N.H.)
“When I recently had my first knee replacement surgery, Dr. Dore’s suggestions were of great benefit to me. He stressed that my recovery was largely in my own hands and that it was essential to keep up with exercise and Physio routines. I took that to heart and have healed very well. I was told I was exemplary. I went from not being able to walk across the street to now walking for over an hour. Dr. Doré always listens, has a good sense of humour, boundless energy, and lots of empathy. The health system needs more of this type of service from an experienced practitioner.” (C.R.)
“While suffering from an acute sciatica nerve episode, my family physician referred me to Dr. Doré, who provided an assessment and explanation of the causes of my pain. Dr. Doré also helped in correcting my posture while sitting, standing, and walking. Not only did these exercises and changes in posture ensure I did not experience a relapse, but I no longer have the chronic lower back pain that has plagued me for years.” (S.C.)
“Dr. Doré is truly a one of a kind. I am so grateful to him for directly helping my recovery after colon cancer surgery and treatment. His knowledge, encouragement and program helped me get back to a level of fitness I never thought possible.” (D.D.)
“Exercise, like a prescription to be taken regularly, not just for the body, but also the mind and spirit. With Dr. Doré’s exercise classes, I’m enjoying better posture, greater flexibility, more tone, and balance, which nicely complement my other active pursuits. There’s no question that embracing physical activity is a huge part of an overall wellness plan, especially for us who are living with cancer.” (K.S.)
