Dr Leath is an alumni of Cleveland Chiropractic College KC since 2005. His children attend our local Park Hill Schools. He says, "I haven't found a better community to serve than the one where I am now. The Parkville/Kansas City, MO area is teeming with life and growth and stability while providing a sense of community and safety and values that are consistent with how I want to raise my family. I was welcomed to Emery Chiropractic Clinic in 2017 after relocating from my home state of Tennessee. I have been honored to be a part of such a great organization and community and am very proud to continue forward in the many years to come.

Dr. Leath, or Dr J(as we call him), is an accomplished chiropractor who is pursuing interests in chiropractic functional nutrition as well as acupuncture. He has been the backstage chiropractor for several concert events in Memphis and was owner/operator of Leath Chiropractic in Arlington, TN for the 10 years prior to his relocation to KC.

Dr. Leath continues to be involved in many aspects of his local community.

Chiropractor Kansas City MO Richard Emery



I was six years old when I was kicked by a horse. I limped for several weeks and became inactive. The medical doctor’s medicine didn’t seem to help so my dad took me to see Dr. Tucker, a chiropractor. I remember Dr. Tucker giving me adjustments and it didn’t hurt and I got well. After that, my family went to the chiropractor more than the family doctor. We practiced wellness medicine before it was popular.

Dr. Richard Emery has earned degrees in pastoral ministry, counseling, and chiropractic. He has served as church pastor, college professor, and chiropractor. Dr. Richard comment is that “I have been privileged to serve God and my fellowman in several ways. I understand chiropractic and acupuncture to be health care and also, the ministry of God’s love.

Chiropractor Kansas City MO Dorothy Emery



I grew up in Harrisonville and I am proud to be a Midwestern girl from rural America. From my mother, I inherited the small town value of helping those with pain and distress. My helping tools are chiropractic and acupuncture. I am constantly amazed at the broad range of health problems that respond to these wonderful approaches to health care.

Dr. Dorothy Emery graduated from Park University, Kansas University, and Cleveland Chiropractic College. She and Dr. Richard started Emery Chiropractic Clinic in 1986. Together they raised six children. Presently, they have 14 grandchildren. They practice in Kansas City and make their home in a small town near the city.
