Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey Schacter
Go see this man!!! I have a bad lower back and arthritic hip that has kept me from BJJ training for over two years. In the two years plus that I have had this injury, I have tried or been subject to yoga, prolo-therapy, two different physiotherapists, two previous chiropractors, weights, swimming, dry needling, a sports doctor (who has referred me to a hip surgeon and back doctor), trigger-point injections and massage. I had previously given up on health professionals prior to a friend of a friend recommending a visit to Dr. Schacter’s office. Dr Schacter immediately diagnosed my situation in a way that was different to any other medical professional I had seen and begun treatment based on that diagnosis. My situation improved immediately and over the course of ongoing treatment with him (now about 4 months), improved far more then it had compared to my experience with all previous medical health professionals combined! I have gone from having difficulty standing up straight and a limp, to swimming twice a week, gym (weights and cardio) twice a week and have recently started doing kettlebells again. My treatments with Dr. Schacter have gone from twice a week down to once a week and I am on the verge of attempting a return to BJJ training. Am I totally fixed, or do I no longer have pain in these areas, no. But Dr Schacter has turned around a previously hopeless situation and given me hope again. Each week I am stronger and better and closer to getting back to regular training then the week before. The point is, this man did what no one else can do and if I continue to improve at the same rate I may well avoid a visit to the hip surgeon. On top of that, Dr Schacter is one of the nicest people you’ll meet and he genuinely cares about your wellbeing and recovery. Ironically enough, he is also the cheapest! I can absolutely guarantee that at the very least he is worth an initial consultation. Personally, I am completely dependent on this man for my rehabilitation process and very very grateful that he exists!! Go see him!!
In 1996 I fell on my garage floor and ruptured a disc in my neck. After months of unsuccessful treatments from my family doctor and the orthopaedic surgeon he referred me to, I had lost much of the feeling in my right hand and was is constant pain. Finally, in desperation, my family doctor suggested that I see Jeff. He was very specific and did not want me to see just any chiropractor. I had never been to a chiropractor and was very sceptical about chiropractic treatment. Within 3 weeks from Jeff's first treatment the pain was gone and most of the feeling had returned to my hand. After 6 weeks I was able to resume all of my normal activities! From time to time, Jeff has even treated me on the weekend at his home office. He is a great guy and deserves to be rated as one of the best in Calgary.
I had been suffering with post concussive symptoms for over a year and a half. The headache clinic at the children's said that I could not do chiro. I had been living with severe migraines, headache pain, dizziness, as well as other symptoms and after 1 appointment with him, I don't have any headaches and my dizziness went away. Thanks to Dr. Schacter, I'll be able to live my life again. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who may be/ is in the same situation as I was. I was in utter shock when I realized such a change 1 appointment made.
Dr. Jeffrey Schacter is the chiropractor I have been searching for. After 20 years of chronic pain and injury recovery, I've had many treatment from a variety of chiros that were good, but he is fantastic. I'm moving in ways I haven't been able to in years, my appetite is back, my chronic headache and body aches are gone. He is gentle but strong. His treatments are on point. A++
Dr. Jeffery Schacter and his entire team are amazing. Jeff is very professional in his approach. He takes time to explain why he is doing what he is doing, discusses progress, and listens to client feedback. The high marks people give Jeff on RateMDs.com are fully deserved! I Highly Recommend him!
Jeff saved my life. After having my first child, my rib popped out of place and I couldn't take a deep breath without being in agony. Jeff was able to help me out and I have never looked back. He is the best in town. He is also hilarious and genuinely kind.
Jeff is an amazing Doctor- I have played sports all my life and have abused my back neck and spine. I have always had constant pain and thought it was normal and nothing that needed to seek medical attention. After getting hit in soccer, the next day I could not move my neck and was in serious pain I haven't experienced. My co-worker recommended Jeff and I have been hesitate in the past but thought the pain couldn't get any worse so might as well try. I called and got in right away- super friendly staff. He had a consult with me and from my pain he thought I was just terrified. After he adjusted me and the first two weeks of coming back, I never thought it was possible to get my posture back and didn't have to live with chronic pain. He is very friendly and makes a point to create personal connections. Very highly recommended!
Jeff has changed my life for the better. I spent years thinking my chronic back pain was due to a crooked spine and was just something I'd have to live with. After seeing Jeff only once, I walked away feeling a million times better than I had in years. He was able to figure out that my joints were simply locked up on one side and that in fact my pain had nothing to do with a crooked spine. I can't thank him enough for how much he has improved my quality of life. I highly recommend Dr. Schacter!
Jeff is the man. Not only does he help me regularly, but a year or so ago he got me out of a real bind. My back went out on a Friday. When I say out I mean OUT. I couldn't move... couldn't walk, couldn't stand. It was excruciating to go to the bathroom. My wife got me to see Jeff on a Saturday and he adjusted me that day and we agreed to two times the next day. Here is the rub. I am a camera operator and was supposed two go to Disneyland on Tuesday with Dreams Take Flight... a fantastic charity. I was ready to cancel the trip, but Jeff thought he could get me moving by then. He did. Two adjustments Sunday, and two Monday. By Tuesday morning I could fly, and operate my camera. I captured amazing footage of the kids experiencing Disney... all over an 18 hour day mind you! My back held up, and over the next couple weeks Jeff helped me get back to normal. I see him for maintanence now and play hockey, golf and operate my camera with no problems. Highly recommended.
