Meet The Doctors

Dr. Stanley Setzer, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Stan Setzer received his Bachelors in Business from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2010. He then chose Sherman College to complete his Doctoral Studies and officially became a Chiropractor in 2016. It is his mission to bring Chiropractic to as many people as possible and demonstrate the power of the human body to heal itself when the nervous system is clear of interference.

Originally from Newton, NC he moved to Asheville to attend undergraduate college and quickly fell in love with the mountains and the city. Not too long after he fell in love again, this time with his now wife Melissa. Together they have four children Michael, Mathew, Melody and Grayson. Dr. Stan found such a wonderful home in Asheville that after graduating from Sherman College he chose to start practice there and joined the team of doctors at The Joint Chiropractic in October of 2016.

Dr. Stan has a great love for cinema and when asked which four notable people would make up a dinner party Dr. Stan replied with Joss Whedon, Stephen King, George Lucas and Quentin Tarantino.

In addition to his traditional education Dr. Stan has been training in Heishin Ryu Karate for over 15 years and has earned the rank of 3rd Dan (3rd degree black belt), as well as a 1st Dan (1st degree black belt) in Toyama Ryu Iaido, a style of Japanese Sword. He has found great satisfaction over the years teaching students of all ages how to face their fears and build confidence in their ability to protect themselves.

He believes that life should be a process of constant improvement and that everyday a person should work to better some aspect of themselves, no matter how small the improvement.

Through striving to better ourselves we should also work to better the communities in which we live and offer a helping hand where needed. He further continues to educate those who come to him for chiropractic care in ways to improve the function of their bodies and how to protect themselves from disease. It is this aspect of constant improvement that Dr. Stan finds to be the greatest benefit of chiropractic care as every adjustments helps to improve the health of every individual.

Dr. Christina Wocial, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Christina Wocial was born in New York City and raised in Rockland County (45 minutes north of NYC). She attended Rockland Community College and graduated with an Associates degree in Math and Science in 2010. Afterwards, she attended Life University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic in 2014 and 2015 respectively. After graduation she worked in New York City for over a year, practicing Chiropractic Biophysics and the Gonstead Technique. In December of 2016, Dr. Christina joined The Joint Chiropractic Team, and has been loving working here ever since. For Dr. Christina, the very best thing about being a Chiropractor is watching patients smile when their pain has improved or is gone.

Her love for the mountains brought her and her husband, Matthew to Western North Carolina. They are both avid outdoor enthusiasts, love hiking, kayaking, four wheeling, target shooting, and working on their farm. They have three dogs: Akira, Sasha, and Star; two goats: Groot and Rain; a cat: Watermelon; and multiple chickens, ducks, and fish.

The one thing Dr. Christina must have in her fridge is milk or cream for coffee. She loves to drink coffee in the AM but does not like it back.

Four notable people, living or dead, that would comprise a dinner party with Dr. Christina would be: Jesus Christ, because if there were any idols she had, he would be it. Dr. Gonstead, because he was one of her role models throughout chiropractic school. And Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla because she has a lot of questions for them.

One of the coolest things Dr. Christina has done is fly an airplane. To her, this is cool because there really is nothing else like it in the world.

Dr. Ray Chavez, D.C. is a Chiropactor at North Asheville

I grew up mainly in Chicago, except for 5 years between ages 4 and 9, I lived in Peru when my father worked for our church mission. I got my Bachelor's with a minor in Chemistry at Northern Arizona University. I joined The Joint in August 2016. What I love about Chiropractic is the incredible help you can give a patient. With no I'll side effects. I especially love adjusting children (no preconceived notions).

In my spare time I love being with my family. My wife's name is Carrie. We have 4 wonderful kids and 3 great dogs (a great Pyrenees, a toy poodle and a lab mix).

Dr. Chelsey Raponi, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Chelsey Raponi was born and raised in rural NY where she from a very early age knew she wanted to be a healer! She enjoyed being outside, riding horses, and running around with her twin brother and baby sister chasing all sorts of animals. She was also an avid artist and writer and was voted 'most artistic' in school! She had moved to Asheville many years ago when she was inspired to apply to and attend school to become a chiropractor. Now she's back and greatly enjoys being able to use her hands, heart, and expertise to help patients find hope in healing.

She attended Life University outside of Atlanta where she completed both her Bachelors in Biology with a minor in psychology and her Doctor of Chiropractic degrees. During her years at school she took additional electives and seminars in pediatric and pre/post-natal care because she believes health begins in utero! She takes pride in helping her community of families to find the resources they need to live happy, healthy lives together with bodies that are adapting well. Now she enjoys alternative forms of exercise like dance, hiking, tai chi, yoga and spending time with loved ones including her 2 cats. She especially loves music and is glad to get to live in a place where there are so many musicians and artists around!

Dr. Ken Hicks, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Hicks grew up in Virginia. He has a biology degree from Emory and Henry College and his chiropractic degree was completed at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. He owned a private practice for 14 years before moving to Asheville and joining the Joint’s team in 2020. For Dr. Hicks, the best thing about being in the chiropractic profession is being reminded, through this work, that the body needs help and maintenance as we age and that “motion is life”.

Dr. Hicks is married and has a big, black poodle and a calico cat. They enjoy hiking, traveling, seeing live music, spending time with family, and learning new things.

Four notable people, living or dead, that would comprise Dr. Hicks’s perfect dinner party would be: Jimi Hendrix, Alan Watts, Jim Gaffigan, and Tim Ferriss. All amazing in their own way.

Dr. Paul Choi, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Paul Choi was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. He graduated from college with BS in Engineering and worked as a software engineer for 13 years until he received a calling to help people based on a question from his wife. Dr. Choi completed his doctoral degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC in September 2019.

Dr. Choi began working with The Joint Chiropractic in March 2020, and he joined the Mint Hill team in May 2020. One of Dr. Paul’s favorite things about being a chiropractor is making a difference in people’s lives. “Seeing patients smile after getting adjustments and walking out of the office feeling better than when they came in is a great feeling.”

Four notable people Dr. Choi would choose to attend a dinner party would be: Jesus Christ, Abraham Lincoln, Dale Carnegie, and Ronald Reagan.

Dr. Choi and his wife Kristen have 3 children and a Maltese dog named Tiffany. They enjoy fishing, hiking, and being in nature. In his free time, Dr. Paul likes to develop software to make people’s lives easier.
