Chiropractor Andrew Chin D.C.
I would like to thank you for visiting our site and for taking the time to get to know me and Ambleside Chiropractic. Regardless of the reasons why you are here, I sincerely hope that I can help you feel better and get you back your normal activities as soon as possible.
Ambleside Chiropractic has been serving the residents of both West Vancouver and North Vancouver for well over 40 years. Generations of families have come through our doors and we have been helping our patients with everything from back pain, headaches, motor vehicle injuries, workplace and sports injuries. We are committed to helping patients live pain free and healthy lifestyles. Our tradition of individualized health and wellness care starts the minute you walk through our doors. Be it for your current condition or preventative wellness care, we are here to help you.
My philosophy of health care has always been a “Patient Centered” approach. All treatments are centered on you as the patient. We tailor our treatment plans around you and not try to fit you into our treatment protocol. I treat all my patients differently based on their specific needs and concerns. You are given the appropriate time and attention that your condition requires. I want your visit here to feel personalized, comfortable and never rushed. I want you to know that I am committed to your health and wellness when you are here.
Since I also believe in a “team approach” to health care, I feel a multidisciplinary approach with a dedicated health care team is in your best interest. I am committed to working with your family physician and other members of your health care network to provide you with positive long-lasting results and the healthy lifestyle you deserve.
With that in mind, I am pleased to be working with a group of excellent health care providers here at WestVan Medical Group in West Vancouver. WestVan Medical Group is one of the largest, integrated medical facilities in British Columbia. Our group of expert, full service Family Physicians are supported by one of the largest on site teams of Specialist Physicians and an additional roster of supportive health care professionals. As the chiropractor here, most of my chiropractic patients are now receiving the best integrative health care that is hard to beat anywhere in British Columbia or even Canada.
Ambleside is a unique chiropractic clinic in West Vancouver. We provide a new era of health care for our North Shore community by utilizing a truly integrative health care philosophy. Our patients benefit from our evidence based chiropractic care which works seamless with our medical health care systems.
To that end, I also offer my chiropractic patients a research based wellness education and self-care program to help them understand and look after their own health.
Personal & Educational Background
I spent my teen years in Victoria and North Vancouver. I went to St. Thomas Aquinas high school in North Vancouver. After high school I attended Douglas College and finally Simon Fraser University. I then moved to San Jose, California. I attended and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, CA in 1999 and did my preceptorship and locums in Los Gatos, California after completing my Board exams in the USA.
After further completing my Board exams and licencing for Canada and British Columbia, I returned back and worked as a locum chiropractic physician in Victoria. When the locum position ended, I returned back to Vancouver and took over a practice in Downtown Vancouver. I then decided to moved back to live on the North Shore and have remained here ever since.
During the many years of practice and commuting to downtown Vancouver, I finally decided to practice closer to home in West Vancouver. I love the North Shore and believe that there is no better place to live and work. With the mountains behind us and the ocean in front, I am very lucky to be part of this community.
I enjoy my work. Meeting and treating my patients every day is very fulfilling and also a lot of fun. I have come to know many of my patients as friends throughout the years, and consider myself very privileged to have made a positive impact on improving their lives and health.
I keep my chiropractic interests current by taking continuing education courses mainly in radiology, Active Release Techniques, medical and chiropractic research and spinal manipulation techniques.
I like being by the water and enjoy boating, scuba and fishing whenever I can. Golf is an ongoing exercise in futility however I still find it relaxing. I strive to be a better golfer but that seems to happen only in between long bouts of “bad” golf. I also enjoy reading novels by Clive Cussler and Lee Child when I’m not spending time in the beautiful Gulf Islands.
If you are suffering from any pain or discomfort, please feel free to call or write me. I would be happy to spend time discussing your condition and help you find a solution get you feeling better again.
I am always available at the clinic from Tuesday to Saturday between 9am to 6pm. I can return your call or reply to your emails usually within 2 hours.
I invite you to connect with me if you have any questions or queries. We can then review your condition and any records that you bring with you.
I look forward to meeting you.
