About Dr. Joe
Dr. Joe's journey with chiropractic begins with a traumatic birthing process that led to developmental delays, mainly in communication, behavior and lack of coordination.
INTRODUCED TO CHIROPRACTIC
After many hours and many evaluations, medical doctors and psychologists could not explain why these developmental delays had occurred. In the end, the doctors could only tell his parents that he would never be a normal child and that he was borderline Autistic. At the age of three he was still not verbally speaking and having multiple behavioral outbursts a day. It was not until a chiropractor, his uncle Dr. Jerome Fonke, introduced his parents to chiropractic. His uncle explained that the body has the inborn potential to heal itself if the nervous system is free from interference. Through chiropractic care, he was able to communicate verbally and his behavior began to stabilize. Seeing these amazing changes in him, his parents decided to become chiropractors and enrolled at Life University.
In the next sixteen years he saw the great joy and immense capacity for the human potential. He graduated with honors in high school and college, played high school athletics, and developed many personal relationships, despite the medical doctors’ and psychologists’ original predictions. At the age of 23, he found chiropractic to be his calling to serve the community. He enrolled at Life University where he graduated with honors.
Dr. Kim and Dr. Joe met while in chiropractic school and were married November 22nd. They have three daughters; 5 year old Annabelle and the twins, Catherine and Sarah, who are under 2. They are also expecting twin boys in April. When the two are not in the office they enjoy volunteering to help expand and excel the chiropractic profession, being outside and spending time with the family.
