Dr. Douglas McLeod was raised in a chiropractic family (his father recently retired after being a chiropractor for over 50 years). Dr. McLeod learned early the benefits of regular adjustments and a vitalistic health philosophy.

He finished his undergraduate program at the Spartanburg Methodist College and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in 1989. Shortly after, he began practicing with his father in Detroit. In 1994, Dr. McLeod opened his own office, and Mcleod Eastpointe Chiropractic was born. Since then, he has devoted himself to the advancement of the principles of chiropractic by teaching and educating chiropractors throughout the Detroit Metro area on his new system of chiropractic practice. Today, Dr. McLeod serves as Executive Director of McLeod Eastpointe Chiropractic, McLeod Waterford Chiropractic and McLeod Shelby Chiropractic. During 2011, these clinics united under the common name of Hope Chiropractic.

Dr. McLeod has always been a strong advocate for changing and improving the current health care system in our community and on a global basis. He has created, developed and continues to teach other doctors his new and innovative systems in chiropractic that have helped thousands of people in our community reach levels of health care previously thought to be unattainable.

Associations that Dr. McLeod belongs to or has belonged to include; the Michigan Chiropractic Alliance, the International Chiropractic Association, the Federation of Straight Chiropractors, and the National C12 Group, a network for Christian CEOs and business owners. He is actively involved with and is regularly billed as the keynote speaker for the Foundation of Wellness Professionals, along with the Doctor's Speakers Bureau, two international organizations whose purpose is to educate the community about alternative health care options. Dr. McLeod has been certified as a specialist in chiropractic reconstructive care, and is currently one of the few doctors of chiropractic certified in Spider Tech Kinesio tape technology in Michigan.

Dr. Alexis Piper grew up in metro-Detroit where she went through 13 years of Catholic school at St. Thecla and Regina High School. While at Regina, her passion for chiropractic was born when a local chiropractor adjusted her for the first time when she was in severe low back pain. This showed her the power of the chiropractic adjustment and what it can do for people. After attending Wayne State University for her undergraduate, she then began chiropractic school in 2013 at Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

During her time at Life, she had the opportunity to give care to an underserved population in Cobb County, GA and help them understand the benefits of regular chiropractic care and educate them on how to view healthcare from a vitalistic standpoint. She is certified in Activator protocol and Cox-Flexion distraction techniques. She is also certified in Functional Movement Techniques-RockTape basic and performance kinesio-taping.

Dr. Alexis spends her free time with her fiancé and German Shepherd. While in Georgia, she also became involved with CrossFit with her fiancé and will soon be getting her Level 1 Coaching certification, as well. She will be getting married on September 22 of this year.
