Meet The Doctors

Dr. Gemma McDonald, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Kemah

Dr. Gemma McDonald became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2022 when she began serving residents in Kemah, where she continues doing the work she finds so rewarding.

“I love being able to help patients feel better and to improve their quality of life,” she says. “It’s gratifying to be able to change people’s lives.” Born in England but raised in Houston, she has worked previously in Houston and Cypress.

Dr. Mac, as she is known to patients, has a yellow Lab named Gryffin, and a bloodhound named Sherlock. In her spare time, she enjoys watching and coaching soccer.

She earned her doctorate in chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College after getting a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and a master’s in exercise and human performance at Houston Baptist.

“I played soccer in college and we would have a chiropractor come into the training room every week,” she says, describing the time she became a believer in chiropractic. “I remember experiencing tightness in my upper back and it was unbearable. I went to see the chiropractor and after the first adjustment, I felt like a million bucks.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

If she could bring together any four people from history for her ideal dinner party, Dr. Mac would send invitations to singer Kelly Clarkson (“I’m her biggest fan, I’ve seen her 10 times in concert”), David Beckham (“my favorite soccer player of all-time”), basketball player Kobe Bryant (“I respect him greatly as an athlete and he is the ultimate girl dad”), and comedian Ellen DeGeneres (“in a previous life I wanted to be a talk show host! I was voted most humorous in high school.”).

Dr. Mac loves Harry Potter. “It was the series that made me fall in love with reading,” she says.

The one staple she keeps stocked in her refrigerator is ketchup: “It goes with almost anything and makes my cooking disasters taste better.”

Dr. David Higginbotham, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Kemah

Dr. David Higginbotham became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2022 when he began serving residents in the Webster area, where he continues doing the work he finds so rewarding.

“The thing I like most about being in the chiropractic field is helping patients without drugs or surgery,” he says. “I love building relationships with patients and their families.”

Dr. H, as his patients call him, is a native son who worked previously in Houston. He enjoys spending time with his wife, as well as golfing, hunting, and fishing.

He earned his doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena.

Dr. H says it was natural for him to pursue a career helping others experience the holistic health benefits of chiropractic because “I’ve been seeing a chiropractor my entire life.”

Actually, it started when he was 6 years old. He and his brother climbed on the roof of their house when Dr. H decided to jump. He hurt his lower back. The family physician said to lay the boy out on a heating pad and “he’ll be fine.” Knowing her 6-year-old wasn’t going to be still on a heating pad for any length of time, Mrs. H took her son to the family chiropractor. “I entered the office dragging my right leg, unable to walk without assistance from my mother,” he recalls. “After a brief exam and chiropractic adjustment to my lower back and sacroiliac joints, I proceeded to get off the table and walk without dragging my leg. I thought that was wonderful because now I could play when I got home.”

As a professional, he has paid it forward many times. “After three decades of practice, one of my more memorable experiences was similar to the one when I was 6,” he said. “A patient had a similar condition to mine, presented the same symptoms, and after his first visit was able to return to work the next day with little to no symptoms. Chiropractic is not a quick fix, it’s a lifestyle that patients need to maintain their spinal health because you only have one spine.”

Dr. Kegan Lepretre, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Kemah

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 cooking and doing small projects around the house with his wife Bethany, their border collie Zoe, and basset hound mix Traeger.

“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.”
