About Dr. James Gray
We help our patients get their lives back and feel better!
Dr. Gray has established a reputation in the local medical community that transcends the boundaries that have plagued chiropractic and medicine in the past. By working cooperatively with his medical counterparts, they have been able to offer their patients the best of both worlds.
Many medical doctors have been referring their patients to our office for natural health care treatment due to the results we've been able to achieve.
Dr. Gray was raised and has lived in many locales, but the Kansas City metro area is where he calls home. Colleges attended include Missouri Southern State University, Kansas State University, and Cleveland Chiropractic College.
After graduating with his doctorate in 1995, he established his first practice in Blue Springs, MO. After several thousand
patients, and a lot of growing, he decided to open a new office in Independence, MO where he has practiced since 2003.
All that is well and good, but if you really want to know what makes Doc tick... it's his family. Married to his wife, Kathy, since 1992, she's been with him through thick and thin. Kathy may as well have gone through chiropractic school with him! She was there for all the late-nighters, all the tests, reports, national board examinations, etc. As office director today, she helps keep the office running smoothly and efficiently so that we can provide you with a pleasant, healing experience.
With four daughters, Doc has been a pretty busy guy. They've all been active in sports, cheerleading, and everything else girls do... Doc's been coaching, sponsoring, assisting, or taxiing for years! But that's the way he likes it. They're all getting a little older now and as of 2017, Dr. Gray has five grandchildren and one great-grandchild!
Dr. Gray is the Official Team Chiropractor for the Missouri Mavericks, an ECHL affiliate for the NHL's Calgary Flames. He has served on the board of the Missouri State Chiropractors Association, and as an active member in the community, he has been a headline speaker at numerous functions regarding healthcare and business.
About Dr. Josh Sonsiadek
We help our patients get their lives back and feel better!
Dr. Josh was born and raised in New Jersey, but has called the Kansas City area his home since 1998. His passion for helping people stems from the numerous reconstructive knee surgeries and lower back pains he suffered from countless soccer injuries he sustained in high school. He started his healthcare experience as a student athletic trainer in high school and college. He worked under the guidance of Dr. Margaret Dillon, a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. Dr. Dillon helped him as a patient and helped carve his passion for becoming a chiropractor.
In 1997, he graduated from Rowan University of New Jersey with degrees in Biological and Chemical Sciences. Upon graduation, he took a position with a Belgian Food Science Corporation performing microbiological and chemical testing on food additives and ingredients. After a year of working in a lab, he realized he was being called to a higher duty, so he moved to Kansas City to attend Cleveland Chiropractic College.
During his time at Cleveland, he served as a tutor for the Biochemistry, Anatomy, and Microbiology classes. He also served as an officer in Beta Chi Rho, a service fraternity. Dr. Josh received the Clinic Service Award for outstanding service to his patients and was also named to Who's Who in America List. In 2001 Dr. Josh graduated Cum Laude with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Upon graduation from Cleveland, Dr. Josh was fortunate enough to work alongside one of the great pioneers in chiropractic, Dr. Rolla Pennell. Dr. P shared his 50 years of experience with Dr. Josh in all aspects of chiropractic. Dr. Josh attributes his passion for serving his patients and making the patients the number one because of all the guidance he received from Dr. P.
After treating thousands of patients, Dr. Josh joined forces with his longtime friend and colleague, Dr. James Gray, in late 2008.
Dr. Josh primarily attributes his success to his parents who have been his rock solid foundation that never gave up on him, even if he wanted to give up on himself. He also attributes his strength to his two boys that serve as continuous inspiration to help and serve others.
Dr. Josh is a member of the Missouri State Chiropractic Association. As an active member of the community, he has spoken to countless businesses on the importance of workplace ergonomics and work-place safety. He has lectured at various groups and organizations such as the Lions Club and the Blue Springs Chamber of Commerce on chiropractic's place in the healthcare industry. Dr. Josh also works with local sports organizations in the areas of strength, endurance, conditioning, nutrition, and injury prevention.
Our Patient Promise
We take pride in giving the best possible treatment available to our patients without being here to 'sell' you a program. We listen to you and give straight-forward advice on what your options are.
We are not here to “sell” you a program, or tell you what to do. As opposed to what you get from your traditional medical doctor, we listen to you, and give you straight-forward advice on what your options are. As your doctor, we work for you.
We can’t make you follow our advice, and you can choose to fire us or ignore our advice at any time… so long as you understand that you are responsible for the consequences of your actions. It is our responsibility to make intelligent decisions and recommendations based on our findings in your consultation and examinations.
It is then your responsibility to choose what you want to do with that information. If you choose to follow our recommendations and wish us to provide care, we will do so.
