PT in Western Canada?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any doctors maybe in Victoria or Vancouver that are knowledgeable about CPPS?

So far all canadian doctors seem to be out east.

Thanks!

Re: Green Tea ok?

I still have no idea about green tea and my CPPS... most of the time when I drink green tea I'm fine, but once and a while immediately after I'll get a huge flare up... hard to tell if it is the green tea or something else... . anyone here have to take green tea completely out of their diet?
