Meet the Doctors
Dr. Juan Fernandez
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Juan Fernandez is part of MaxLiving, a global network of doctors who are at the forefront of healthcare. Several MaxLiving doctors even serve as chiropractors for the USA Wrestling Team! Dr. Fernandez attended Life University in Marietta, GA, and graduated at the top of his class with Cum Laude honors. Since then, he has had the privilege of working alongside some of the most distinguished and renowned chiropractors in North America, training in some of the largest chiropractic practices in the country. Dr. Fernandez has received advanced certifications in spinal correction, nutrition, and fitness. He has a passion and firmly believes that starting a child on the right foot to true health and healing will lead to a future free of sickness and disease.
Dr. Fernandez found his passion when numerous members of his family were struck with sickness, disease, and early death. This prompted him to ask tough questions about health and how the human body works. While exploring options in healthcare, the principles of MaxLiving stood out from the rest: to find the cause of health problems rather than just treat the symptoms. His experiences have led him to firmly believe that the body needs no help to heal and function, it simply needs no interference.
Dr. Fernandez has a heart for serving families and people throughout the community. He dedicates time to help churches incorporate comprehensive wellness programs, teaching them God’s laws of health and healing. He also delivers these programs to corporations, schools, sports teams, and organizations.
Dr. Fernandez has served in the Army National Guard as an officer for over 15 years. During this time, he completed Airborne and Ranger training and served on multiple combat deployments. He understands the need for a healthy body and mind. Further, Dr. Fernandez has been married for five years to his beautiful wife, Dr. Whitney Wills-Fernandez. Together, they have two beautiful daughters, Eden and Eve. He truly desires to live his best life now and to help you do the same!
Dr. Whitney Wills-Fernandez
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Whitney Wills-Fernandez is a MaxLiving Chiropractor. She is a graduate of Life University in Marietta, GA, where she received her Doctorate of Chiropractic. Following, Dr. Whitney trained at two of the largest chiropractic clinics in the country, dedicating countless hours of study and experience to provide her patients with the best care possible. She holds advance certifications in spinal correction, nutrition and fitness. Her mission is to equip people to view and manage their health from the inside out through the 5 Essentials Plan.
Dr. Whitney’s ultimate goals are to help people minimize the usage of medication, prevent illness and disease, and to help ensure that families in her community are able to experience life abundantly. She is passionate about helping people reach their full, God-given potential.
Dr. Whitney was born and raised in Miami County and is a graduate of Troy Christian High School. She received her Bachelors of Nursing from Kettering College of Medical Arts and Indiana Wesleyan University. She worked as a labor and delivery nurse prior to attending chiropractic school. It was during her time as a nurse that she watched patients look for health in medication and surgery which often led to covering up symptoms rather than healing the cause of those symptoms. This drove her to learn more about true health and healing.
Dr. Whitney is excited to join hands with Troy in building healthy lives and families through whole-health chiropractic care. She enjoys partnering with local schools, businesses, and churches. At schools, she’s happy to provide free wellness checks for teachers, education on proper nutrition, backpack safety classes, and scoliosis checks. At businesses, Dr. Whitney offers teaching on proper ergonomics, workplace safety, and healthy living. Lastly, at local churches, it brings her joy to help transform the health of congregations through programs such as Winning My Race and the MaxLiving Makeover.

She worked as a Medical Assistant while traveling throughout the United States with her husband who served in the United States Air Force. While working in many different medical offices, she kept seeing the doctors she worked for putting patients on medications that covered up the symptoms and never looked for the cause. She found this happening in her own life with being diagnosed with high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, thyroid goiters, and finally fibromyalgia, which led her to almost total physical disability. She ultimately starting learning about natural ways to heal her body and has been able to decrease her medication from taking 6 medications a day to only 1.
