Dr. John Tate became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in May 2020 when he began serving residents in the Fort Worth area to continue doing the work he finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about my day is hearing the success stories of how chiropractic treatment has changed my patients’ lives -- I truly love to share in their joy,” he says. “The second-best thing about being a chiropractor is the actual act of adjusting. I have always loved mastering my craft.”
Dr. John, as he likes his patients to call him, is a product of Fort Worth and worked previously in Arlington. His wife, an opera singer with a master’s degree in vocal performance, was his high school sweetheart, and they share the love of their two older dogs, a Brussels griffon named Beezus and a Chihuahua named Bear. “Both our dogs are older, and have many problems, but we love them all the more for it,” he says.
When he’s not working or playing with the dogs, Dr. John loves reading fantasy and classic literature.
He attended MidAmerica Nazarene University, where he earned bachelor’s degrees in anatomy and health and wellness, before getting his doctorate of chiropractic from Parker University.
“I have always been deeply engaged in learning about sports injuries and recovery,” Dr. John says. “The moment I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor was after I pulled my hamstring my senior year during football. After the athletic trainers and physical therapists told me I should sit out for half of my senior season, I went to my chiropractor. He taught me a stretch that helped me recover and play at full strength after taking only five days of rest -- I didn’t miss a single game! That’s when I realized that I could provide the most comprehensive health care by becoming a chiropractor -- actually treating injuries and conditions, and not simply giving patients a pill to cover the symptoms.” Dr. John says he loves working at the South Hulen clinic because he has some great patients “who love being adjusted by me, and humor me by listening to my terrible dad jokes.”

Peanut butter is the one thing that Dr. John always keeps stocked in his kitchen: “My favorite snack is a simple spoonful of peanut butter.”
If he could fashion his ideal dinner party, Dr. John would sit down with a brainy bunch: Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla, and Albert Einstein. “I want to invite the greatest and most revolutionary scientific minds of all time to dinner to watch them compare notes and discuss physics and other discoveries,” he says. “Just to be a fly on the wall in that room would be an incredible experience.”
Some of the best advice he ever received came from his high school coach and English teacher, who said, “It’s not where you’re at, it’s where you’re headed that matters.”
“I have said that to myself and to my patients countless times,” Dr. John says. “It reminds us that our current pain or discipline is moving us forward towards a greater goal.” It also works well with the bit of advice he freely offers: “Don’t let the fear of the unknown, or fear of the past, stop you from pursuing your goals and dreams. If you find yourself stuck, talk to someone who has been where you are -- ask them what they did to accomplish their goals.”
Dr. Frank Lopez became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Fort Worth area, where he continues doing the work he finds so rewarding.
“The thing I love most about being in the chiropractic field is that I am helping add life to people’s lives,” he says. “One of the other great perks is that it’s rewarding to meet new people and learn about them.”
Dr. Lopez is a product of Aubrey, Texas, and worked previously in Dallas. When he’s not in the office, he enjoys fishing, friends, and playing with his German shepherd, Mia.
He attended University of North Texas and studied pre-med before attending Parker University, where he received his doctorate of chiropractic. “I found out I wanted to be a chiropractor while I was in rotations during pre-med,” he says. “I found out how much chiropractic could help others, and I loved learning what the body was capable of doing.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Lopez says the one thing he always keeps stocked in his refrigerator at home is Tapatio, “a hot sauce I can put on anything and make it delicious.”
If he could bring any figures from history together for his ideal dinner party, Dr. Lopez would assemble Jesus, King Leonidas, and weapons enthusiast John Lovell to the table. “From Jesus, I’d like to learn what it means to be a man of God and learn as much as I can,” he says. “From King Leonidas, I’d like to learn how to be a great man who can inspire and lead others, and from John Lovell I’d like to learn how to be a warrior poet and live for a higher purpose.”
Dr. Lopez says the coolest thing he has done had a heroic element to it. “When I was in high school, I witnessed a car accident and helped a woman out of her smoking car,” he says. “It was interesting because I was able to help someone in an immediate situation and change their life.”
