Meet The Doctors

Dr. Gerard Hefferon, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Tempe Marketplace

Dr. Gerard Hefferon joined The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2022 when he began serving Tempe area residents doing the work he finds so rewarding.

“The thing I love most about being in the chiropractic field is seeing the look on patients’ faces when they realize they can be better and don’t have to hurt for the rest of their lives,” he says.

“Giving people a natural alternative to improve and enhance their lifestyle is extremely gratifying.”

Dr. Gerard, as he is known to his patients, was raised in Northern Ireland and in his spare time enjoys the gym, martial arts, reading, and writing.

He attended Anglo European College of Chiropractic, where he received his doctorate, and worked previously in the UK, including London, Derry, Norwich.

“I was first introduced to chiropractic after a car crash and was surprised to find out the education that went into it,” he says. “I enjoyed the natural and non-invasive nature of it.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Gerard makes a point of keeping butter from grass-fed cows stocked in his refrigerator: “It brings great flavor to everything.”

If he could bring together any four people from history for the dinner party of his dreams, the doctor would send invitations to philosopher Johann von Goethe,quantum physicist John Wheeler, cosmologist Ervin Laszlo, and martial arts legend Bruce Lee. “This group would represent a variety of opinions on the nature of life and consciousness, and being our best selves.”

Dr. Gerard does volunteer work at a home for children with Downs syndrome representing all the local high schools. “I have never seen happier and more appreciative kids,” he says.

Dr. Natalie Bustamante, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Tempe Marketplace

Dr. Natalie Bustamante joined the family of local healthcare providers at The Joint Chiropractic in 2022 when she joined the staff of the Tempe Marketplace and East Mesa clinics. An Arizona native, she brings 19 years of clinical experience, and has worked in several successful clinics including owning her own for 11 years.

Dr. Natalie, as her patients know her, knew she wanted to be a chiropractor at age 13 after experiencing hip pain after a gymnastics class and right before cheer tryouts. "A wonderful chiropractor came in on the weekend to see me, and I made the team. I've experienced many of the conditions that patients come in with. I know how much being in pain can affect a person's life. I love being able to help people get back to doing the things they love to do when they aren't limited by pain and spinal dysfunction."

In her spare time, she loves spending time with her daughter. They have two cattle dogs, a pitbull mix and a desert tortoise that's been in the family over 40 years.

Favorite pastimes include reading, learning and travelling. Some of her favorite books of all time are The Alchemist and The Celestine Prophecy.

Favorite quote: "In my dream, the angel shrugged and said, if we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination and then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand." by Brian Andreas.

"I look forward to meeting you!"
