We offer comprehensive primary health care services to you and your whole family.
We believe in the power of prevention, early detection, timely intervention and we work with you to develop health and wellness plans that work for you.
We are pleased to offer daily walk in clinic visits to all patients. Each day one physician is assigned to cover walk in patients. (Please note we may place a cap on numbers depending on volumes each day.)
Shale Medical Clinic was established in 2017 by Dr Joel Giddey, Dr Lealet van Staden and Dr Ryan White. All three founding physicians hail from South Africa originally and after establishing their own practices in Drayton Valley saw the need for an additional clinic in the Town.
We focus keenly on creating and establishing ourselves at the center of the â€œPatient Homeâ€. We believe that optimal health outcomes are derived by a consistent relationship of trust between a patient and their health providers. The family physician plays a critical role in bringing this â€œteamâ€ together. When patients are in linked to the one-patient, one-doctor & one-pharmacist model we find increased safety and efficacy in treatment. When this is further extended outward to other providers in nursing/rehab/hospital & auxiliary fields with the family physician a facilitator it results in a supportive and organized team fully engaged with the patientâ€™s health outcomes as the goal.
