Meet The Doctors
Chiropractor Kevin Kemp D.C.
Hi, I’m Dr. Kevin Kemp. I’m pleased to welcome you to our practice. I believe I understand patients because, simply put, I was a skeptical patient before I became a doctor of chiropractic.
After an accident in the Air Force, I suffered with headaches for several years. Seeking many different forms of care, doctor after doctor told me it was all in my head. I decided to go to a chiropractor. I did not experience an immediate miracle, but I’ve seen the headaches disappear from my life. I just wish I had known then what I know now.
I chose chiropractic as a career because I saw such great results in my own life. I found chiropractic to be a great way to help athletes and families alike in a natural hands on way. If you become a patient in our Columbus OH chiropractic office, I will explain everything in advance, answer your questions, and communicate directly with you, my patient. I think people appreciate that.
I received my doctor of chiropractic from the Logan College of Chiropractic in St.Louis, Missouri. I have taken post graduate specialty courses in x-ray, human biology, diagnosis, and treatment methods that I feel are important for today’s physician. I was surprised that the education I received was so intense and thorough, having spent many hours in class work and clinical study. I especially liked classes in diagnosis and treatment of extremities.
As a chiropractor in Columbus OH and an athlete, I find it exciting to treat the athletic patient, be it elite or weekend warrior.
The injuries easily extend to all walks of life, athlete or not. We treat young children as well as people into their golden years. My entire family benefits from the chiropractic care we provide. My two children, Emma and Claire, are becoming athletes in their own right and need care from time to time to keep them in top form.
My whole family loves to be outdoors. Whether playing sports, camping or fishing in some of Ohio’s beautiful scenery. I also coach several youth soccer teams in my spare time. I am a great lover of the outdoors and when not practicing, you can often find me fishing in a local stream or hiking one of Ohio’s beautiful trails.
In conclusion, thanks for visiting our site. if you would like to become a patient in our office feel free to call or email us and schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you at our office in Columbus OH and helping you improve your overall health. I hope to get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge.

Dr. Latona, DC
Hi I’m Dr. Latona. Welcome to our office. I’ve been a chiropractic physician in Columbus for 18 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. It’s a city that I’m proud to raise my kids in.
I know firsthand what it’s like to have a family member with back pain. My mother suffered with tremendous back pain. She worked very hard and put her body through a lot of physical stress every day. I remember her having me walk on her back as a child she was in so much pain. I knew there had to be a better way. That is why I became a chiropractor. I really enjoy treating my patients, getting to know them on a personal level, and helping them get their lifestyle back.
I now have two amazing children and love spending time with them. They remind me every day how beautiful life can be.
I chose to practice at lifestyle medical because the clinic and staff prides themselves on an integrated approach to healthcare and wellness. Our entire healthcare team gets together and discusses every case in depth before we move forward with treatment or recommendations. I love the integrated approach to healthcare and am proud to be part of it.
I have seen a lot of chiropractic offices and this is the only office that focuses on corrective care the way we do. We have a unique approach of helping patients with a variety of health issues. I look forward to meeting you!
