Dr. Schumacher's Surrey office is currently located immediately off the Trans-Canada Highway in the northern portion of Surrey, near Guildford Town Centre.  While the office primarily services Surrey, Langley and the rest of the Fraser Valley, its convenient location to New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, White Rock and the U.S. border means patients are seen from all over the region.

To the right is a map of the Guildford portion of North Surrey, where our facility is located.  Our new office location is indicated by the red star.  As you can see, we are centrally located within the Vancouver metropolitan area.  And we are quite easily accessed via the Trans-Canada Highway, Hwy. 1, and from the U.S. border (represented by the bottom edge of the map). 

Our new facility is located immediately off the Trans-Canada Highway in the northern portion of Surrey, near Guildford Town Centre Mall, (which is represented by the rectangle shaded in this color on the map). 

As you can see, our new address is immediately east of 152nd Street, the main street of the Guildford portion of Surrey.

FROM INTERSTATE I-5 AND OTHER U.S. LOCATIONS SOUTH OF SURREY 
From Washington State, (including Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle and Bellingham International Airport in Bellingham, Washington), Oregon, and the United States:

Take Interstate 5 (I - 5) North until you near Bellingham, Washington.  At this point you should decide which border crossing you wish to use. There are three border crossings that you may wish to consider: 

1.  The Peace Arch Crossing  This is the main border crossing, and it's simple to reach--just stay on Interstate 5 and the expressway will come right up on this crossing.  The downside to using this crossing is that because this is the main crossing to Vancouver, the border delays (when present) are almost always longer than any other crossing point.   
2. 
The Pacific Hwy. Border Crossing, also known as the "Truck Crossing".  This exit usually has fewer delays than the Peace Arch crossing, and it's just off the main highway, so it's quite convenient, too.     
3.  The Crossing at Aldergrove.  The benefit of this crossing is that it will consistently have the least wait of any of the main border crossings--so it's a great choice on long weekends or other times when the border traffic is particularly heavy.  The downside to this border crossing is that it's further east than the other two crossings, so you'll want to make the decision for this crossing as you near Bellingham.     

In order to decide which crossing is quickest, you can tune your radio to News 1130 Radio (at 1130 on your A.M. dial), which gives you traffic updates including news on border crossing delays "on the ones"--that is 1 minute past the hour, 11 minutes past the hour, and 21, 31, 41, and 51 minutes past the hour.  If there are significant border delays, you should be able to hear them on this station.   

Border note:   To save yourself any hassles at the border, bring passport or other proof of citizenship and don't bring any guns, alcohol, or tobacco. 

To take the Peace Arch Border Crossing, simply stay on I - 5.  It will take you directly to the crossing without having to get off the expressway.  After crossing the Canadian border, you'll find yourself on an expressway, Hwy. 99.  Take the first exit past the border, 8th Avenue, and head east (to the right) to 176th Street.  When you get to 176th Street, turn left.  You'll be heading north on 176th Street.  On 176th, you'll be traveling north from 8th Avenue several miles.  You'll see the Avenue numbers you pass getting larger.  When you pass 96th Avenue, you'll want to get onto Hwy. 1, the Trans-Canada Hwy..  You'll pass over the freeway (Hwy. 1), then get on that freeway heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will take the next exit, Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right.  After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West.  Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street.  We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  There is free street parking and free parking in the parking lot behind the building. 

To take the Pacific Hwy Border Crossing, you'll get off I - 5 at exit 276, which is Avenue D in Blaine, Washington.  You'll drive about 10 blocks to 12th Street (Hwy. 543), then turn left.  This will take you to the border.  After you cross, you'll find yourself on Hwy. 15, also known as 176th Street in Surrey.  Stay on that road from O Avenue (the border) all the way north until you get to 96th Avenue.  (The Avenue numbers get larger as you head north.)  Shortly after 96th Avenue, you'll see a sign for Hwy 1 (the Trans-Canada Highway).  You'll pass over Hwy 1, then get on it heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will take the next exit, Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right.  After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West.  Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street.  We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  There is free street parking and free parking in the parking lot behind the building. 

To take the Aldergrove Border Crossing, (which you'll only want to consider if the other borders have length delays), you'll probably wish to make this decision as you near Bellingham.  After you pass downtown Bellingham, you'll find yourself nearing a sign for Bellis Fair Mall.  This mall is located at a Meridian Street, or Hwy. 539.  You'll take that north past the pretty town of Lynden directly to the Canadian border.  Once you cross the border, you'll find yourself in Canada on 264th Street heading north.  Take 264th Street from the border (0 Avenue) north to 52nd Avenue.  Just past 52nd Avenue, you'll reach Hwy. 1, (the Trans-Canada Hwy).  Get on Hwy. 1 heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will
drive from 264th Street across the entirety of Langley and most of Surrey.  You'll pass exits for 200th Street and 176th Street.  You'll take the next exit after 176th Street, which is Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right.  After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West.  Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street.  We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  There is free street parking and free parking in the parking lot behind the building. 

If I am coming from outside the Metropolitan Vancouver area and wish to visit Dr. Schumacher, the Achilles Foot Health Centre, or Shockwave Therapy - BC, can you recommend a place for me to stay nearby the office during my treatment? 

We see patients from all over the province of British Columbia, Canada, the United States, and from other locations around the world.  Hence, it is often necessary for our patients to remain in the area for a period of time during treatment, especially for surgical treatment.
