Dr. Mike Shaw has been with The Joint Chiropractic since 2016 and is proud to be part of the clinics in Killeen and Temple. A 1995 graduate of Texas A&M with a BS degree in exercise physiology, he received his doctorate in chiropractic from Parker University in 2001.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the opportunity I have to change lives every day,” Dr. Mike says. “It’s extremely gratifying to see continued personal growth among my patients.”
Dr. Mike worked previously in Dallas and Austin after being raised in New Braunfels.
In his spare time, he enjoys fitness, sleeping, spending time at the beach, and attending concerts.
He says he knew chiropractic would be his calling “when I realized how powerful chiropractic was. It resolved a neck pain I had been suffering with for years.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Mike says the one thing he always has handy in his refrigerator is That Green Sauce from H-E-B, because it can be used on just about anything.
Given the opportunity to create a dinner party with anyone from history, he would like to bring together comedians from the glory days of SNL. “I would love to get Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and John Belushi together and just sit back and listen to old Saturday Night Live stories,” he says.
The coolest thing Dr. Mike has done, he says, was join the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America program. “It was a life-changing experience,” he says.
Dr. Drew Perkins, whose patients call him Dr. Drew, is the doctor and owner of the Temple and Killeen locations of The Joint Chiropractic. A graduate of Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in biology, Dr. Drew graduated cum laude from Parker University in Dallas in 2016.
One of the greatest joys for Dr. Drew is seeing patients new to chiropractic get their pain resolved after an adjustment. “The thing I love most about being in the chiropractic field is seeing the expressions of awe, disbelief, and happiness on the faces of new patients after their initial issues are gone,” he says. “The second-best thing is delivering something as powerful as the adjustment with my own hands.”
Dr. Drew grew up in the Odessa/Midland area of Texas, and he has worked previously in Austin and Dallas.
His wife, Janet, is the wellness coordinator at The Joint. They have three children -- two boys and a girl -- along with a cat named Sky.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time at the lake, and playing golf, tennis and ping-pong. He also enjoys reading.
Dr. Drew knew chiropractic was his calling at a young age. “Ever since I was little I wanted to be in the medical field,” he says. “When I was 13, I was hit by a car and had severe low back pain. I was told it would go away on its own, but after a month it was still there. My parents, who had never been to a chiropractor themselves, took me to my grandma’s chiropractor and, after two adjustments, I had no back pain.
“I love working at The Joint because it focuses only on the adjustment, which is so simple yet effective. I also love spreading chiropractic to those who would normally not have the means to receive care.”
In Case You Didn’t Know …
Dr. Drew says he always must have pickles or green olives in his refrigerator. “I crave them,” he says, “especially at night.”
If he could sit down with any figures from history and share a meal, Dr. Drew would gather an eclectic group: actor Will Farrell, industrialist (and the wealthiest American in history) John D. Rockefeller, scientist Sir Isaac Newton, and Jesus Christ.
Dr. Drew says the coolest thing he has ever done was to go scuba diving: “It’s like being in a completely different world.”
