As a skilled adjuster who also focuses on normalizing patient breath and energies, Dr Elissa is very passionate about her work.

Dr. Chad is a transformative Chiropractor who inspires, motivates and empowers his patients to achieve optimal health through routine chiropractic care.
He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University, Atlanta, GA in 2004. Since then, his life’s mission has been serving his patients in their personal wellness journey and making the wonderful benefits of chiropractic known through his chiropractic adjustments.
At the age of 5, Dr. Chad said something happened to him that would change his life forever. He was suffering from severe allergies and experienced 50% decline in his hearing. Nothing helped him get relief until he was taken to a chiropractor where he received his first life changing adjustment.
He says, “I still remember how great that first adjustment felt. My hearing was instantly restored, and as I continued care my allergies improved.” That’s when he knew he would become a Doctor of Chiropractic and help other people get the same amazing results that he did.
In his free time, Dr. Chad enjoys weightlifting, riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle and spending time with his family. Together, he and his wife Missy have two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Zoey and two Italian Greyhounds, named Harley and Deuce.
Dr. Donald Pritt joined The Joint Chiropractic’s family of local healthcare providers in 2015 and has been at the Midtown clinic location since 2019. A graduate of Excelsior College with a bachelor’s degree in biology, he received his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University.
Dr. Donnie, as he prefers to be called, really appreciates the opportunity he has to impact his community. “The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is that we’re looking for the cause of the problem, not the side effect,” he says. “The other thing I like is working with other doctors to have the best effect on the patient.”
Before landing in Atlanta, Dr. Donnie worked in Virginia, New York, and New Jersey. A product of West Virginia who spends time with his schnauzer Lois, Dr. Donnie enjoys spending his spare time hiking, working out in the gym, and studying nutrition.
He knew that providing chiropractic care was his calling when he took a look at his family. “I saw my grandparents taking 21 different types of medication,” Dr. Donnie says. “I knew there must be a better way to deal with ailments.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Donnie says the one thing he always keeps stocked in his refrigerator is Seaside Cheddar: “I can’t live without putting it on my salad.”
If he could bring together any people from history to comprise his dream dinner party, Dr. Donnie would send invitations to actors Marlon Brando,Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams, and physicist Albert Einstein. “All are different characters and the conversation about their lives and when they lived and the effect they had on society would be fascinating,” he says.
Those great actors might have questions of their own around the dinner table for Dr. Donnie. “Years ago, I was nominated ‘most eligible bachelor’ in Cosmopolitan Magazine,” he says. “I had a full-page ad write-up which was both embarrassing and cool at the same time.”
Dr. Matt graduated from Life University in 2019, the largest chiropractic school in the world, with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. He also received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology from Ohio University and proudly served in the United States Air Force as an Avionics Technician on the F-22 Raptor.
Dr. Matt decided to pursue a career as Chiropractor. He was a lifelong headache patient and with the help of chiropractic care he was able to get rid of his headaches.
Dr. Matt is very passionate about his work.
“I love helping patients achieve their goals through regular chiropractic care so they can age gracefully and do the things they love to do. I also love working with kids and expecting mothers”
Dr. Matt was born and raised in southeastern Ohio in a small town called Gallipolis.
He married his beautiful wife Tiffany in 2013 and they have an amazing daughter Schylar. They moved to Georgia in 2016 and fell in love with the area. Dr. Matt and his family are also animal lovers and have a dog and three cats. As a family they enjoy taking the dog hiking in the Georgia mountains.

She is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and the Georgia Council of Chiropractic (GCC).
