Dr. Bree Barrett joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2016 and returned to the Midtown and East Atlanta locations in 2019. She graduated Cum Laude from Loyola University-New Orleans with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. From there she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Life University with her doctorate in chiropractic.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the ability to help patients experience health and wellness without drugs and surgery,” she says. “The other thing that is so gratifying is the relationship we build with patients and supporting them through life’s ups and downs.”
Dr. Bree, as she prefers her patients call her, has worked in Marietta and Acworth, as well as Atlanta. A product of South Louisiana, she enjoys running 5K and 10K races, along with cooking and reading when she’s not working or spending time with her two daughters and son.
She pursued chiropractic because she saw the failings of the status quo. “My aunt was battling multiple sclerosis and breast cancer, and traditional medicine was not healing,” she says. “If anything, the MS drugs created the breast cancer. Chiropractic care was able to relieve some of the pain caused by MS and help improve my aunt’s quality of life.” Dr. Bree is excited to be working at the Midtown and East Atlanta locations. “I love working with this staff,” she says. “I feel like I am part of a cohesive team that provides the best quality care available.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Bree says the one thing she always has stocked in her refrigerator is vanilla-flavored almond milk: “It’s my daughter’s favorite.”
Her dream dinner would include a table that has Oprah Winfrey, U2 singer Bono, entertainer Chelsea Handler, and Chef Emeril Lagasse. “Oprah is a legend and inspiration, and Chelsea Handler is hilarious,” Dr. Bree says. “U2 is my favorite band and I admire Bono’s humanitarian work, and Chef Emeril is a fantastic chef who loves New Orleans as much as I do.”
The coolest thing Dr. Bree has done, she says, took place while on vacation. “I went to China and walked the Great Wall of China.”
Dr. Boyd graduated with honors from Texas Chiropractic College, after obtaining his bachelor's degree in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry from Texas Southern University. He was introduced to Chiropractic after his friend was injured and disabled for months due to a car accident. Boyd practiced in Houston until hisailing father, a General Practitioner in Nigeria, persuaded him to complete a medical diploma to assume responsibility of his father's clinic. He obtained his medical degree from St. Mathews University School of Medicine, located in Oviedo, Florida. He then practiced pain medicine as a specialty, utilizing Prolotherapy and Platelets Rich Plasma Injections (PRP) to aleviate pain, in Nigeria for 5 years. Dr. Boyd still monitors this fully operational clinic in Nigeria and travels there to assist with patients whenever he has a chance. With both a medical and chiropractic background, he is a great asset. For over 10 years, Dr. Boyd has maintained the reputation of being a competent and careful Chiropractor.
Dr. Kevin Stalls joined the family of local healthcare providers with The Joint Chiropractic in 2019 with his arrival at the East Atlanta clinic location. Dr. Stalls -- you can also call him Dr. Kevin -- graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in theater arts from Colorado State University before earning a doctorate of chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College.
“The thing I like most about being in this field is that chiropractic really does help people feel better,” Dr. Stalls says. “I like the opportunity to be a calming and caring presence in someone else’s life.”
Dr. Stalls is no stranger to Atlanta professionally, but as a self-described military brat, he is also no stranger to Texas, Virginia, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Iceland.
When he’s not working or spending time with his family, which includes two daughters, a Chihuahua named Rothko, and a wife he describes as “the absolute best,” Dr. Stalls enjoys cooking.
Although he thinks his true calling is as an actor and writer, Dr. Stalls knew he had found his purpose at the very beginning of his career. “I was finally at clinic at TCC and I started treating someone with severe back pain, as well as PTSD, and I was able to help him so much in life,” he says. “I knew then that I was going to have a major positive impact on the lives of many people as a chiropractor.”
He could not be happier that he is now having a major positive impact on his current patients.
“I really like working at East Atlanta because I really feel like a part of the community,” Dr. Stalls says, “and I fit right in because it’s a very laid back group of people who live here.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
One of the things that’s always stocked in Dr. Stalls’ refrigerator is butter. “Butter,” he says, “makes everything better.”
If Dr. Stalls could bring together any four characters from history for the dinner party of his dreams, he would include two actors, a motivational speaker, and a talk show host. “Jack Lemmon is my all-time favorite actor, and Hugh Jackman is a versatile actor and all-around good guy,” he says. “Tony Robbins is unique, a powerful force of nature full of positive energy, and Ellen DeGeneres is a great light of love and acceptance -- and she’s hilarious.”
Dr. Stalls says one of the coolest things he has ever experienced was attending a performance at the the magic bar in Snowmass, Colo., before it closed down: “One of the best magicians in the world blew my mind right in front of me as I drank a Labatt Bleue in the beautiful snowy Rockies.”
Dr. Kiefer Sotomayor joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2020 when he joined the staff at the East Atlanta clinic location. Prior to graduating Cum Laude with his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University, he earned his bachelor’s degree in biology at University of Puerto Rico.
Dr. Kiefer, as he prefers his patients call him, could not be happier doing what he’s doing. “The best thing about being a chiropractor is having the tools to help others improve their lifestyles,” he says. “It’s gratifying to have the opportunity to impact as many lives as possible.”
When he’s not working, the product of Dorado, Puerto Rico, enjoys martial arts, playing music, and making coffee while enjoying time with his Australian shepherd, Hazel.
“I knew that chiropractic was my calling when I was wrestling competitively in school,” he says. “I injured my ankle and the orthopedist wanted me to sit out the season. I decided to get a second opinion and went to a sports chiropractor, who put me back on track in less than a month and I was able to compete -- and win -- after chiropractic treatment.”
Dr. Kiefer previously worked in Marietta and is excited to work in the East Atlanta clinic. “I love the dynamic and the energies between the entire staff,” he says. “Everyone is energetic and welcoming. This creates the best work environment ever.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Kiefer says the one thing he always has on-hand while at home is a cold bottle of water. “The major component of our body is water,” he says, “but I can ensure that mine is almost fully water because I drink tons of it daily and I never get tired.”
He would love to have the opportunity to bring together any four characters from history for an unforgettable dinner party. “If I had the opportunity to choose four famous people, I would choose Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, George Lucas, and Nikola Tesla,” he says. “I truly believe that this would be an amazing combination of art, culture, and knowledge in one place.”
Dr. Kiefer says the coolest thing he has ever done was become a musician: “Because of this, I get the opportunity to play music on different stages and travel to different countries to share one of my most precious passions -- music!”
