Ratings for Dr. Avtar Jassal
Dr Jassal is the 3rd chiropractor I've seen in Vancouver and my family will be sticking with him! He listens. He is so respectful of my children's differing personalities If staff are so supportive and helpful with our individual family needs ..... I never feel like an inconvenience And most importantly his methods work. Having suffered chronic back pain since childhood, my back and overall health has never felt better
I came to Dr. Jassal on specific recommendation from a naturopathic physician I trust. I was not at all looking for chiropractic based on previous experiences in my past. However, word had started to circulate about new and gentler forms of chiropractic that use a variety of advanced techniques to not only treat acute pain situations but address the entire nervous system from movement to digestion and the immune system. This approach had great appeal. Initially I began treatment from a fairly cranky, intolerant mental state brought on by years of “trying things” and not feeling like I was making any progress. Now in my senior years I started to have a few falls, a head trauma, lockjaw, insomnia and degenerative arthritis along with a compromised immune system and digestive ailments. After a few months of treatment I am surprised at how quickly I’ve begun to actually feel better, sleep better and move without any pain. And it is all still a work in progress. I’m definitely having longer periods of time where I feel euphoric. I’ve not been a person to seek mood altering substances to see myself through but I can recall a couple of adjustments from Dr. Jassal that sent my spirits soaring; my eyes and brain to instant clarity along with increased energy. I suddenly had a thought of understanding why some people choose drugs as a coping mechanism. Who wouldn’t want to feel that good as often as possible! But without any damaging effects! I must add that I am especially impressed with the efficiency and caring nature of not only Dr. Jassal but his entire team. These are clearly special people. What a pleasure to walk into a clinical practice with so many positive elements…from the openness of each team member to the educational approach that inspires the patient to be a part of the treatment. In other words, we are doing this together; rather than my showing up to have something done to me. I have appreciated the way Dr. Jassal organizes the experience so that I have opportunities to ask questions either in person or by email. As well, I like having a personal copy of all my x-rays and scans. This is an office that considers the time of their patients as well. I’m amazed at how well they keep their target schedule of getting me in and out within l5 minutes almost always on the mark. So I’m left with few excuses or reasons to not keep my treatment going through to as much optimal health as possible. So far, my only regret is that I did not land here sooner. I allowed finances and a built in prejudice of past radical chiropractic I experienced many years ago to keep me from being introduced to the new advancements made in this form of treatment. I was unaware or had completely forgotten that my Union benefits plan has always had extended coverage that included chiropractic. I just didn’t think to use it. But is all chiropractic treatment equal, even with technique advancements? Doubtful. I think Dr. Jassal is exceptional. A true healing spirit who clearly has great passion for his work and great discipline, knowledge and expertise. Highly recommendable!
Me and my family have been seeing Dr Jassal for a year and a half now and I tell you he's our savior, God sent!.

Thank you Dr jassal God bless you for helping us have a new life xx The Gills:)
I started seeing Dr. Jassal in my first trimester of my pregnancy with my daughter. I was suffering from a "bulging"/"slipped" disk and was terrified how much worse it would get over the course of my pregnancy. I had been seeing a traditional chiropractor in Yaletown for over a year with no improvement. Dr. Jassal did full scans, explained my condition carefully and thoughtfully and designed a straightforward care plan. Within the first few visits I noticed a change and after a few months of rehabilitation I was completely aligned. That was in the fall of 2011 and I have been a patient since with no noticeable regressions at all. I am pregnant again with my son and am receiving prenatal care again in preparation of the birth of my son next month. My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Jassal since she was 4 days old. He is so wonderful with her and his technique is incredibly gentle. My son will also see him within hours/days of birth. I can't speak for my husband but he also switched from his chiropractor after over 10 years as a patient to Dr. Jassal after seeing our family's results. Highly recommend to anyone!!!
The staff has two young members Tilly and Emma who I feel do not come across as sincere they seem or force themselves to portray. I also saw them rolling their eyes after a patient asked a question. As a result I feel they take away from the professionalism that the office displays and is conveyed by the new person Sundra and the Doctor. Both make it worth it to endure the younger 2. The Doctor is very knowledgable and mature in his thinking and application.
