2019 Small Business of the Year
Hollon Family Chiropractic
Two 27-year-old doctors fresh out of chiropractic school had a vision “to inspire all individuals, from newborn to over a century old, to live life to the fullest through quality chiropractic care, education, and service to the community.” They spent countless hours looking at numbers and calculating how they could make their dream of owning their own chiropractic practice a reality. They moved to Jefferson City, secured a business loan and started the ball rolling!
They quickly established themselves in the community by becoming involved at church, joining the chamber, joining the Young Professionals, and many civic groups. In a few short months, they had forged friendships that they still hold and value today and started to see their practice sprout to life. They quickly built rapport by spending extra time with the small number of initial patients. As a result, the referrals began to flow in.
At Hollon Family Chiropractic, they practice the Gonstead Technique of Chiropractic, which allows them to be extremely accurate and specific when working with patients and their specific needs. Dr. Derrijk Hollon is the only dual-certified chiropractor and athletic trainer in Jefferson City. Dr. Hilary Hollon specializes in pregnancy and pediatrics and attends many post-graduate seminars to provide the most effective pregnancy and pediatric care to even the smallest of patients. Dr. Raquel Heisse specializes in complete family wellness care from newborns to over a century old.
Hollon Family Chiropractic is a member of Integrity Doctors, an elite group of doctors working together across the United States to help educate communities about the benefits of chiropractic care and collaborating together to get 80% of the population under chiropractic care.
Technology is a staple at Hollon Family Chiropractic. From signing in at the front desk on an iPad, to the full-service digital x-ray system, spinal screenings using thermographic technology, email and text appointment reminders, doctor charting, and electronic receipts.
The rapid growth of the business was apparent as the office quickly grew in 6 short years, adding 1 doctor and 7 support staff to the team. Even after completing a building expansion in 2016, the business has still outgrown itself. Since their first year of practice, sales have grown over 1,188% and this year alone they have added 483 new patients. The Hollon’s are happy to continue serving their customers and are proud to say they will soon be adding a fourth doctor, expanding hours of operation and in the last month opened a second location in California, Missouri.
