Dr. Mark Walker joined The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local chiropractors in 2016, and became the clinic director for the River Oaks location in Houston in 2019. He is a graduate of North Texas State University, where he received a bachelor of science, and Texas Chiropractic College, from which he received his doctorate of chiropractic.
Dr. Walker says the best thing about working in the chiropractic field is what it has to offer the patient. “Helping people feel better is extremely rewarding,” he says. “That I am able to make a living at it makes it even better.”
He has previously worked in South Carolina, as well as well as New Orleans and Austin.
In his spare time, he enjoys doing laundry.
He particularly enjoys working at The Joint because of “the flow and speed you have” to treat patients.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Walker says one thing that he has to always have in his refrigerator is a cold Coca-Cola.
He says the coolest thing he has ever done, he has done twice: “I flew my father from Canada to Pebble Beach to play golf together. He’s in his 70s, and to spend time with him is really special.”
Dr. Kegan Lepretre joined The Joint Chiropractic family of local chiropractors in 2018. A graduate of Louisiana Tech with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, he received his doctorate of chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College.
“The most gratifying thing about being in the chiropractic field is that I am able to help patients out of pain in a natural way,” he says. “I love being able to help in a hands-on way.”
In his spare time, Dr. Lepretre enjoys playing video games and brewing beer with his wife Bethany -- and their border collie Zoe.
“Chiropractic is the culmination of everything I wanted to do in order to best serve other people,” Dr. Lepretre says. “It’s a natural, hands-on method where the patient and I can set goals and see results.”
Dr. Lepretre has always worked in Houston, and he loves his current location. “We’re in the heart of one of Houston’s busiest areas,” he says. “It’s a great place to see as many people as possible and learn from new experiences.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Lepretre says the one thing he always has in his refrigerator is craft beer. “Treating patients can be fulfilling, but it can take a lot out of you,” he says. “It’s a delicious way to de-stress.”
If he could dine with anyone, Dr. Lepretre says he would like to bring together comedians from different mediums, music, stand-up, movies, and television: Dav Avidan, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Rudd, and Andy Samberg. “Putting a smile on someone’s face is an amazing feeling, and some light-hearted comedy can almost always lift the spirits,” he says. “Each of these individuals has come from no-name positions in life and built themselves up to the stars that they are now. Not only would the conversation be inspiring, but I’m sure it would leave me in stitches, as well.”
One of the most interesting things that Dr. Lepretre has done took place when he took a mission trip to Guatemala. “It was my first opportunity to travel out of the country,” he says. “I got to meet some amazing people, and I was able to see some amazing views. It was an amazing opportunity to help some well-deserving children at an orphanage while also getting a chance to try new foods and visit black sand beaches.”
