Dr. Randy Garcha was born and raised in Vancouver. After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia he went on to pursue his Doctor of Chiropractic from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, graduating with honors. Dr. Garcha has been in practice for over 15 years treating patients suffering from motor vehicle accident injuries, sports injuries and acute and chronic conditions. Dr. Randy Garcha is an instructor for chiropractic students in their final clinical internship. He is a member of the adjunct faculty at the University of Western States.
Dr. Randy Garcha was involved in a major motor vehicle accident in 2005. The litigation process eventually involved a court trial. Dr. Garcha gained valuable experience from his personal injury case. Subsequently, Dr. Garcha has attended court proceedings on numerous occasions for patients involved in personal injury cases as an expert witness.
Not only did he gain experience within the courtroom, but also his experience as a patient changed his treatment philosophy entirely. When receiving treatment for his motor vehicle accident injuries, Dr. Garcha was frustrated at the notion of having to attend 4-6 treatments per week, a revolving door of chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage therapy for what seemed to be an eternity. It was at that point that Dr. Garcha began to implement a “one stop shop” treatment strategy, which involved integrating a variety of practice methods to come up with his combination therapy model. Combination therapy utilizes physiotherapy modalities, soft and deep tissue massage and stretching techniques and diversified adjustments all specifically tailored to which stage of whiplash injury and eventually healing the patient is in.
In addition to changing his treatment strategy, Dr. Garcha was one of the first chiropractors in BC to implement the “direction to pay” billing structure for patients having difficulty with paying for treatment user or private fees for injuries suffered from a motor vehicle accident. With the “direction to pay” billing procedure the patient doesn’t need to pay any upfront fees. Instead these fees are collected directly from ICBC through a lawyer at the time of settlement.
Dr. Randy Garcha is looking forward to opening his second location and is eager to serve the community.
