Meet The Doctors

Dr. Eric Nocera, D.C is a Chiropractor at Friendly Center

While Dr. Eric Nocera found running a traditional chiropractic office rewarding, it was also challenging as a business, and the opportunities The Joint presented left him ready to pursue a different approach. He decided to join The Joint to be a part of a great approach to chiropractic care and a great team. Having spent more than a decade and a half as a doctor within the traditional insurance-based system, Dr. Nocera found The Joint’s accessible, affordable, no-insurance-required approach offered a refreshing change to providing chiropractic care with its primary focus on the patient-doctor relationship above all. Experienced in having owned and operated his own practice in High Point, North Carolina for more than a decade, Dr. Nocera has provided all aspects of patient care ranging from chiropractic maintenance to injury care.

He is a graduate of National College of Chiropractic in Chicago (1997), and prior to that received his BA in Pre-medicine/Psychology from Kent State University in his home state of Ohio (1993). Dr. Nocera understands the value of living an active lifestyle and is an avid tennis player who has played competitively in USTA leagues and tournaments for more than 10 years. He also enjoys mountain bike riding, swimming and the hospitality North Carolina is known for.

Dr. Leah Foster, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Friendly Center

Dr. Leah Foster is a graduate of Parker University College of Chiropractic, in Dallas TX. She and her husband are originally from the Oklahoma panhandle. "We love it out here, (in North Carolina) no tornadoes." She has attained a doctorate of Chiropractic, bachelor's degrees of Biology, Anatomy, and Public Wellness. Dr. Foster loves to adjust everyone, but has a special interest in pediatric chiropractic, and functional medicine. Dr. Foster has been married for over eight years, and in her spare time loves to read, watch movies, and "experiment" in the kitchen. (You wouldn't call it "cooking", but sometimes it's good.)

Dr. James Oerter, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Friendly Center

Dr. James Oerter has been in healthcare since 1977. He began his career working in physical therapy and started his chiropractic journey in 1984. He attained a doctorate of Chiropractic and bachelor's degree in human biology from Logan Chiropractic College.
