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 Chiropractic Physicians 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.
