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 2020, Dr. Gray has six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren!
