Meet The Doctors

Dr. Ami Fountain, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Park West

Dr. Ami Fountain is an Arizona native. At 16 she was in a severe car accident and sought chiropractic care. She attributes her health and ability to rebound to weekly chiropractic care.

She graduated in 2006 from Life University in Marietta, Georgia. While in school she helped establish the Pediatric Club. This helped her gain knowledge of pediatric adjustment techniques. After graduating, she worked in Georgia and in 2010 she decided to return to Arizona to be near family.

Dr. Ami is passionate about health, food, learning and animal rescue.

Dr. Rick Marx, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Park West

Dr. Rick Marx graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology in 1972 and has pursued a number of employment adventures since then, including stints with the California Park Service, an actor in Hollywood, a Holistic Health Practitioner and massage therapist, and an equipment technician and training supervisor at a large university. But, it was not until he decided to pursue a deeper calling to be a chiropractor that his story took its present course. Dr. Marx realized that a radical course change was in order twenty years ago and entered Chiropractic College. He received his Doctorate from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles, California in 1995, and has been practicing here in the Valley of the Sun ever since. Those years have given him a wide exposure to all ages and types of patients, as well as an appreciation of the power of the chiropractic adjustment to change lives.

He has a passion for teaching and sharing his knowledge and experience in the health care field with not only patients, but students as well, as he is also currently serving as adjunct faculty in the Biology Department at Paradise Valley Community College. Dr. Marx is excited to be joining the Joint organization because it represents a return to the purest expression of what he went to chiropractic school to learn how to effectively deliver - the life changing spinal adjustment, unlocking the power of innate intelligence (the Autonomic Nervous System) to heal and properly coordinate all the body's activities.

Dr. Dawne Hennessy, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Park West

Dr. Hennessy has been in practice since 1985. Dr. Hennessy’s education consists of more than 4000 hours of specialized training in the areas of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, radiology, orthopedics, diagnosis, etc. She specializes in the treatment of joints, especially of the spine, that has become misaligned causing mechanical malfunction and nerve interference. This condition results in poor communication from the brain which controls all body functions. Dr. Hennessy will, through diagnosis and treatment, correct these misalignments which will improve the communication from the brain to the body. This results in wellness or an absence of dysfunction while promoting a safe, non-surgical method of healing and preventing neuromusculoskeletal injuries.

Dr. Cody Ghents, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Park West

Dr. Cody Ghents D.C. was born in Bismarck, ND and raised in Rapid City, SD. He attended Stevens High School in Rapid City and competed in baseball, football and wrestling. Dr. Ghents earned his bachelor's degree in pre-professional biology from the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND in 2018. Outside of the classroom, he was a catcher for his college baseball team. Dr. Ghents received his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2022 at Cleveland University-Kansas City. Following graduation, he joined The Joint Chiropractic team in the West Valley of Phoenix.

“I believe that living a healthy and active lifestyle is of utmost importance. As a former collegiate athlete, I dealt with various sports injuries throughout my baseball career. Through chiropractic care, I restored motion and function of my body to be able to get back onto the field and perform at a high level.”

In his spare time, he enjoys weightlifting, exploring new breweries, hiking and attending/watching sporting events.
