Cannot say enough good about Dr. Shantz and his team (particularly LeeAnne Gullett). They make every effort to fully understand what is going on and go out of their way to make sure you are heard.
Dr Shantz and Leeane Go see this team! ( if you want results) Knowledgeable, professional, accessible, resourceful and understanding. I can’t say enough about both Dr Shantz and LeeAnne.
Dr. Shantz performed shoulder surgery on our 18 year old back in April. After spending 2 years trying to find the right options and answers for our son, we were close to giving up. His passion is baseball and he was offered a scholarship to play in the US. Unfortunately his chronic pain caused ongoing frustration for him. Finding Jesse and his team was a true gift. It is now 8 months later and his team continue to support his rehabilitation from a distance which is amazing! Leanne Gullett is truly invested in his recovering and I can tell you as his mother I cannot thank her enough. He is feeling stronger than ever, his pain finally made sense after Dr. Jesse explained in detailed his 45 photos from inside his shoulder. I cannot recommend this clinic enough.
I was looking for someone who could give me a timely assessment, options, and support. I wanted to feel in control which is difficult in the public health system. I wanted someone professional with a solid reputation and experience in ACL knee injuries. I got it all with one call to Acumen. A bit of luck had me scheduled for an appt the very same day in Kelowna. Dr Shantz and his support staff (Francesca, Caitlyn, and LeeAnne) were all super-relateable, professional, and attentive. Absolutely no regrets ...
Jesse’s team at Acumen is top notch. Professional, generous and really know their stuff. My right shoulder, knee and hip were so stiff for years. LeeAnne has me on the road to recovery in no time. Big difference after only 3 sessions. Great to finally find partners in my health & fitness journey. Thank you Jesse, LeeAnne and the whole Acumen team!! - Elliot Rose
You will not find a more knowledgeable and caring team than Dr. Shantz and LeeAnne. Caitlyn always takes care of the details as well. My family has had 3 surgeries with them and I couldn’t be happier. I have never met anyone that cares more about your recovery and getting back to 100% functional than these people. I wouldn’t go anywhere else !
Dr Jesse was awesome in dealing with. Gave us all the options that would best help me in me getting back to playing hockey. Leanne has been super fantastic working with my recovery after my ACL reconstruction. Highly recommend them!
The full team is excellent. The patient gets a professional and honest assessment of the injury. The Dr and the therapist both attended the first meeting with the Dr giving his medical opinion and the therapist with her assessment on what activities you can continue with. Dr Slade and his team are not the generic in their assessment and treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Slade and his team.
I felt a lot better after this appointment. Dr. Shantz explained what has happened, and took his time in explaining the options. I felt heard, which for me was a big thing. Also, Caitlyn and Leanne were very friendly and helpful. Trust Dr. Shantz's opinion, knew from this appointment, that he is very knowledgeable, and has had a lot of experience. Also very friendly, and answered all of my questions. Thank you.
It was such a pleasure meeting with Dr. Jesse. Very easy to talk to and he did not push surgery, in fact, we decided physio was my best option. But I got an expert opinion within 2 days and didn't have to wait months to see a specialist in our healthcare system! They gave me exercises to do to augment my physio and followed up to make sure I was doing ok. A real pleasure having access to this type of medical help and professionalism. I hope we get more of this type of service in Alberta!
I am very pleased that I made an appointment to see Dr. Slade Shantz. He is knowledgeable, thorough, kind, compassionate and an excellent communicator. It was obvious that he had my best interests at heart, he was honest and straightforward regarding my diagnosis and prognosis, and he provided realistic options for treatment, as well as recommendations. The appointment was not rushed, and I was able to have all my questions answered. I was also impressed with the help provided by his staff with respect to therapeutic exercises as part of my treatment, as well as the administration of Dr. Slade Shatz's practice.
The Acumen Team is Amazing! My hip needed an expert opinion as I felt lost between multiple doctors visits with no physical exams and doctors checking up on google to give me an approximate diagnosis on my issue.
Dr. Jesse Slade Shantz took the time needed (1 hour) to explain my diagnosis and ensure that I understood my treatment plan. He spoke in ways that I could relate to, I felt listened and relieved that someone was performing a physical exam on my fractured fibula which no one in the past had bothered to do. With the multiple treatment options given to me, I also got some a Home Exercise Program from LeeAnne Gullett, the Athletic Therapist. Once home, the team worked fast at reaching out to me with a consult note and sent it to my family physician so my journey could keep moving forward. Thank you Acumen Clinic for the much needed help.
