DR. KATIE GEE
Dr. Katie was born and raised in Greensboro, GA and now lives in Jefferson, GA with her husband, Brantley, and her two sons.
After high school, Dr. Katie attended Young Harris College, then transferred to Georgia College and State University (GCSU) in Milledgeville, GA where she graduated with a degree in biology. It was at GCSU that Dr. Katie first felt God laying chiropractic on her heart. Out of curiosity, she interned at a local chiropractic office her final semester and saw amazing healing take place-- people struggling to walk in the office were able to leave 100% better. It was after that experience that she decided to apply to Life University where she graduated in 2016 as the Salutatorian of her class.
Dr. Katie is committed to never stop learning. She has attended multiple seminars per year since she started chiropractic school, most of which were geared towards pediatrics or perinatal topics. She has earned her Webster Certification as well as her Advanced Proficiency Certification in Torque Release Technique and is working on her Pediatric Certification through the "Pediatric Experience". Not only has she been serving a large number of pregnant women and children since she began practicing in 2016, she has also been adjusting both of her sons since they were about an hour old.
"Chiropractic has changed my life and the life of my family... it has changed the way we think and the way we act and we are infinitely healthier because of it. I don't want a single person to miss out on the opportunity to experience what my family and I have, so it is my duty and my passion to tell everyone I come in contact with."
DR. PATIENCE CANTY
Dr. Patience was born into a military family in Tucson, AZ. She has moved all over the United States.
Dr. Patience was raised in Greenville, SC. While a senior in high school she decided she wanted to take the path of a medical doctor to ultimately become a forensic pathologist.
As she matriculated at Hampton University in Hampton, VA, her passions turned towards psychology and pediatrics. She graduated in 2014 from Hampton, with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (pre-medical science concentration). While taking time to apply to medical programs and physician assistant programs, Dr. Patience learned about the power of Chiropractic and its ability to change lives in her surrounding community.
She interned with her mom's chiropractor for months until finally deciding to apply to several Chiropractic schools in the Spring of 2017. She visited Life University and instantly knew she found a place to thrive there. Dr. Patience graduated from Life University in September of 2021 with her Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree.
While at Life University, she honed in on a specialty in pediatrics and perinatal care. She has traveled to Haiti on a chiropractic mission trip and to Australia for advocacy efforts with the WCCS (World Congress of Chiropractic Students). She also attended several seminars on the topics of pediatrics, prenatal care, and Torque Release Technique.
When Dr. Patience is not in the office serving our community, or traveling to see family and friends, she spends her time as a full spectrum birth and postpartum doula for families in-person and virtually. She has been a Certified Holistic Doula since February 2020 and Certified Holistic Postpartum Doula since April of 2020.
Dr. Patience also became Level 1 Neuroemotional Technique Certified in January 2022. Dr. Patience uses Neuroemotional Technique (NET) with her doula clients and chiropractic patients to help them clear neuro emotional complexes not only in their thought-life but present in their bodies as well. NET relieves symptoms related to mind/body stress. It relieves these symptoms via non-needle acupressure point correction via meridian systems in the body accessed by muscle testing.
Dr. Patience believes that the best way to have an impact on the health of communities in the future, is to impact the health of families now while babies are still growing in utero. She has a passion for pediatrics and perinatal populations. Dr. Patience loves sharing with others how chiropractic care can impact families physically, mentally and spiritually.
