Meet The Doctors

Dr. Evan Welfare, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Evan Welfare joined The Joint Chiropractic and its family of healthcare workers in 2019. A graduate for Florida State, he received a bachelor’s degree in English and studied major figures in Jewish American, American, British and Irish literature. He earned his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University.

“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is helping people achieve their optimal level of functioning and quality of life by correcting spinal misalignments through the nervous and musculoskeletal systems,” Dr. Welfare says. “The other thing that’s great is having a sense of fulfillment at the end of the day, knowing I helped many people feel better.”

A product of Orange Park, Dr. Welfare previously worked there, Ocala, and Jacksonville.

In his spare time, Dr. Welfare enjoys playing and watching soccer, fishing, and going on nature walks with his wife, and any number of their five dogs. In addition, they also have a horse named Nevada, a donkey named Frances, and pigs named Jasmine and Mr. Pig.

“The moment I knew chiropractic was for me is when I sat down with my mentor one particular day to discuss changing careers,” Dr. Welfare says. “I taught English and mathematics as a tutor, and worked in retail for a few years. I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do. My mentor just happens to be a chiropractor, so I thought he’d be a good option for seeking guidance. He gave me a sense of happiness knowing how many people he had helped in the past.

“I had been receiving chiropractic care since I was 14 years old, and felt it made me better before and after playing sports. So, as a result, 14 years later at the age of 28, I started researching chiropractic schools and learning more about it.”

Dr. Welfare has found a home at The Joint Chiropractic.

“I like working at The Joint because the atmosphere between the patients and staff is friendly, and the philosophy of chiropractic is understood to enhance the quality of one’s life, accommodating the specific needs of each individual.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Welfare says the one thing he always has in his kitchen are peppers “because they’re good for digestion.”

If he could travel through time to assemble a fantasy dinner party, Dr. Welfare says he would include D.D. Palmer, Pele, and Jackson Browne. “I would like to ask the creator of our chiropractic profession how it came to be and what inspired him,” he says. “I would include Pele, the world’s greatest soccer player, just because he’s the greatest -- though some may argue this. Jackson Browne is one of the greatest lyrical musicians of our time whose words have inspired me to admire lyrical poetry through song in a way I can relate my own life to. I would also include my best friend, Jahi, for never judging me or anyone else, even though I’ve had dinner with him countless times in my life.”

In dealing with Dr. Welfare, if you get the impression he is a man of compassion, you wouldn’t be wrong. The coolest thing he’s ever done, he says, was spend a summer taking care of a child with cerebral palsy and mental impairment.

“He could not walk and had trouble forming words when communicating, and could not enjoy activities the way other children could,” Dr. Welfare says. “I was able to carry him up the ladder to slide down the slide into the pool, to play basketball and soccer by pushing him in his wheelchair, and to join in on other fun activities with the other children. This happened one summer at the YMCA when I was a camp counselor in high school. This child’s name was Kyle, and everyone grew to love and accept him.”

Dr. Leigh Ann Jasinnas, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Leigh Ann Jasinnas -- you can call her Dr. Leigh Ann -- joined The Joint Chiropractic family in 2019 with her arrival at the Jacksonville clinic locations. She is a graduate of Delaware with a bachelor’s degree in health behavior science and a minor in strength and conditioning. She received her masters degree in human nutrition and functional medicine from University of Western States, and her doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida.

“The thing I appreciate so much about being in this field is having the opportunity to engage with so many unique individuals on a daily basis,” Dr. Leigh Ann says. “The other thing is that I’m constantly learning. Every patient, every encounter, is an opportunity to expand my knowledge and help others.”

Prior to landing in Jacksonville, Dr. Leigh Ann worked in Wilmington, N.C., and the suburbs of Philadelphia, which is near where she was raised in the tri-state area.

In her spare time, she enjoys time with her husband and two children, as well as reading, learning to cook gluten-free recipes, spending time at the beach, “and traveling and exploring as much as I can.” They also have a chocolate Labrador named Bear.

With all her education, Dr. Leigh Ann has no doubts that she’s doing exactly what she should be doing. She remembers well the moment it became clear to her. “The first time I had a patient tell me that, because of chiropractic care, they could now play with their kids without pain,” she recalls. “That’s what it’s really all about, helping people live their lives fully with the people they love.”

Dr. Leigh Ann says one of the things she likes most about the Jacksonville locations of The Joint Chiropractic is the people. “Our team is incredible,” she says. “We all work together to serve the community, but equally important, we have fun doing it.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Leigh Ann says the one thing she always has in her refrigerator is her favorite tomato-based condiment: “You can never go wrong with ketchup.”

If she could bring any four people from history together for her dream dinner party, Dr. Leigh Ann would have a fairly eclectic group. “Martin Luther King Jr., because of his willingness to persevere through really tough situations for the benefit of all people,” she says. “Nostradamus because I’d love to pick his brain; Serena Williams because she’s an incredibly talented athlete and the epitome of work ethic; and Amelia Earhart because she is one of the toughest and bravest women I’ve ever heard of.”

They may well be impressed with some of Dr. Leigh Ann’s experiences as well. “I traveled and lived in Beijing, China, for six weeks to watch the 2008 Summer Olympics,” she said. “I also got to climb a section of the Great Wall of China. Definitely one of the coolest experiences I’ve had so far.”

Dr. Jonathan D’Cruz, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Jonathan D’Cruz -- you can call him Dr. Jon -- joined The Joint Chiropractic family of healthcare providers in summer 2019. A graduate of Florida State with a bachelor’s of science degree in exercise science with a minor in child development, he earned his doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange.

“The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is giving people a holistic and natural alternative to address their pain and dysfunction,” Dr. Jon says. “I love empowering patients to be proactive and to take charge of their own health.”

A native of Indian Harbour Beach, Fla., Dr. Jon has also worked in Cocoa Beach and Port Orange.

In his spare time, he enjoys being active by lifting weights, running, playing basketball, or going to the beach. He also likes watching sports.

Dr. Jon pulls inspiration from a quote by BJ Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, who said: “The preservation of health is easier than the cure of disease.”

It’s that mentality that he brings to the Jacksonville office every day “The environment of The Joint provides incredibly simple and effective access to chiropractic care for the communities of the city of Jacksonville,” he says. “Chiropractic care is for everyone, and being a member of The Joint gives me the ability to serve the masses as a chiropractor.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Jon says the one thing he always has on hand at home is Synergy organic kombucha. “I did not understand the importance of gut health and nutrient absorption -- and how it affects the human body -- until halfway through my time in chiropractic school,” he says. “Kombucha is full of probiotics and plays a key role in promoting a healthy gut, so it’s important to me to always have some in my fridge.”

If he could invite any four people from history to his dream dinner party, Dr. Jon would include some of sports’ biggest hitters: basketball player Michael Jordan, golfer Tiger Woods, football player Tom Brady, and Brazilian soccer player Pele.

“These are arguably four of the greatest athletes in the history of sports,” he says. “I would be very intrigued to learn about their secrets to success and what drives/drove them in their pursuit to be at the top of each of their respective sports.”

When it comes to the coolest experiences in his life, Dr. Jon includes cops, kids, and hoops. “In the summer of 2017 and 2018, I volunteered as a youth basketball coach for the city of Port Orange’s Police Athletic League. This experience was very rewarding as I grew up playing basketball during my youth and at the high school level. I was able to help boys in the 11- to 13-year-old age group learn how to work as a team, develop their own personal skill sets, and find joy in playing the game of basketball in the same way that I did as a youth.

Dr. Kelvin Bolar, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Kelvin Bolar joined the family of healthcare providers at The Joint Chiropractic in 2019. A graduate of Central Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in health fitness and rehabilitative methods, and a minor in exercise science. He got his doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Dr. Kelvin, as his patients call him, is excited to be part of the team of local chiropractors serving Jacksonville.

“The best thing about being in the field of chiropractic is the ability to help someone feel better and get them back to the activities that they enjoy with just the use of my hands,” he says. “The other thing that’s gratifying is getting to meet and treat so many people on a daily basis.”

A product of southeast Michigan who worked previously in Palm Coast, Fla., Dr. Kelvin is married to a fellow chiropractor; they have one son and two dogs, Zane and Jada. When he’s not working or enjoying time with his family, Dr. Kelvin likes working out, going to the movies, building remote control cars and trucks, and riding his motorcycle.

He has a passion for chiropractic because there’s such a direct connection with the patient. “When I learned of the chiropractic profession and how chiropractors literally take a hands-on approach to naturally help improve the lives of patients, I knew it was something that I had to be part of,” he says.

He really appreciates the value of The Joint Chiropractic’s services and the extraordinary availability it provides: “The Joint makes chiropractic care affordable and easily accessible to patients, helping to rid them of the hurdle of sticking to appointment times.”

So as far as Dr. Kelvin is concerned, drop in anytime.

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Kelvin says the one thing he always has stocked in his refrigerator is milk, and the reason is pretty obvious: “Because I don’t like dry Frosted Flakes.”

If he sat down with any four people from history to create the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Kelvin would include media mogul Oprah Winfrey, Disney CEO Robert Iger, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. “I would like to have a dinner party with these individuals due to their public reach and employee base,” he says. “I would discuss the benefits of chiropractic care in relation to employee productivity and decreased time off due to musculoskeletal issues. My aim would be to get each of these individuals to offer chiropractic care for all of their employees with The Joint Chiropractic as a national partner provider.”

Although he may not be very adventurous with his cereal, that’s not necessarily the case out in the world. “The coolest thing I have ever done is hike to the top of Mt. Quandary in Colorado,” he says. “With an elevation of 14,265 feet, this is the highest that I have ever hiked. If I were to ever do it again, the only thing that I would change would be the time of year: hiking to 14,000 feet in the middle of winter is terribly cold!”

Dr. Joe Whitehead, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Joe Whitehead has been with The Joint Chiropractic family since 2016 and is honored to be part of the team serving the Jacksonville clinic locations. He received a bachelor of science degree from Excelsior College in Albany, N.Y., after getting his doctorate from Life University in 1999.

With two decades of experience, Dr. Whitehead knows well the benefits of chiropractic. “The best thing about being in this field is the deep satisfaction that comes from helping patients regain their ability to enjoy life,” he says. “The other great thing is to be out from behind a desk and interacting with many people each day.”

Dr. Whitehead has worked in Atlanta and several other cities in Georgia, as well as Birmingham, Ala. He and his wife have three daughters and a son, as well as a rescue dog and cat named Winston and Hope, respectively.

In addition to enjoying family trips to St. Augustine, Fla., and learning to sail, Dr. Whitehead enjoys auto racing and drifting, which he participated in previously.

It was through his dad’s work as a designer that led Dr. Whitehead to chiropractic. “I was on the path to medical school when I met Dr. Mike Hatrak,” he says. “My father was designing his kitchen in Alpharetta and I sometimes accompanied him to the job sites. Dr. Hatrak took me to tour the campus of Life University and I fell in love with the chiropractic’s arts and science. The ability to help people without drugs or surgery resonated with me.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Whitehead is a man who believes in his condiment of choice and says he always has some Texas Pete hot sauce on hand: “I could put it on just about anything.”

If Dr. Whitehead could bring together any four characters from history for his ideal dinner party, he says he would include Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and Jesus. “I would love to hear the ‘old Hollywood’ stories from Reagan, and of course he was a great president,” he says. “Bush was the head of the CIA, so he has some stories to tell. I would invite Jesus because I have so many questions.”

As for his fourth, he doesn’t have a name. “It would be the first guy on the scene of the Roswell crash because,” he says, “I have to know.” Dr. Whitehead says a couple of the coolest things he has ever was skydiving and drifting his old Nissan 240.

Dr. Trevor Hardman, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Orange Park

Dr. Trevor Hardman joined The Joint Chiropractic’s family of local healthcare providers in 2020 and will work at clinics throughout the Jacksonville area. A graduate of West Virginia University who got a bachelor’s of science with an emphasis on medical laboratory science, he earned his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange.

“The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is helping people,” he says. “It’s gratifying to see the impact I can have on a patient’s life.”

Dr. Trevor, as he likes to be called, grew up in central West Virginia and worked previously in Boca Raton and Pensacola. Married to a fellow chiropractor, they have a Weimaraner named Koda. In his spare time, Dr. Trevor enjoys hiking, kayaking, fishing, and golfing.

“Chiropractic became my calling when I personally witnessed the carelessness of opioid abuse by means of polypharmacy while working in the Emergency Department,” he says. “I like working at The Joint, where we practice what we teach our patients.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

The one thing Dr. Trevor always keeps handy in his refrigerator is hummus: “It tastes so good and can be eaten with anything.”

If he could bring together any four people from history for the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Trevor would send invitations to Jesus Christ, England’s Queen Victoria, actor Morgan Freeman, and business tycoon Warren Buffett. “The reason for having dinner is to enjoy the wisdom they have, and had, acquired so I can become more knowledgeable and a better person,” he says.

The coolest thing that he has done is vacation in New Zealand. “It is the most diverse ecosystem in the world and the land is undeveloped,” he says. “Pristine.”

Dr. Ryan Loren became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Jacksonville area to continue doing the work he finds so gratifying.

“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is being able to change someone’s life while doing what I love,” he says.

Dr. Ryan, as he likes his patients to call him, is a product of Port Huron, Mich., and worked previously in Orlando, Orange City, and New Smyrna Beach.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in health science at Saginaw (Mich.) Valley State University before embarking on his doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange.

Dr. Ryan enjoys spending time with his family -- he has three young boys and a wife who is both a pastry chef and massage therapist. When he’s not with them or working with patients, he likes to unwind by watching sports and playing rec league softball.

He knew chiropractic was his calling after some first-hand experience. “After my first adjustment,” he says, “I went from having ‘just growing pains’ to being pain-free -- and it blew my mind.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Ryan says the one thing he always has stocked in his refrigerator is cold water. Not only is it healthy, “but it’s always so hot in Florida,” so it’s well justified.

If he could bring together any four persons from history for the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Ryan would ensure there would be plenty of laughs around the table; he would include comedians Robin Williams, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, and Jim Carrey.

He says the coolest thing he has ever done took place during his spring break trip to the Dominican Republic his senior year of college. “We took an off-road 8x8 monster truck safari tour,” Dr. Ryan says, “and then rented dune buggies to drive around town and through the sand.”
