Dr. Michael Gissy was born and raised in beautiful West Virginia. Michael enjoyed the outdoors on the family farm raising cattle, hunting, fishing and learning the value of hard work while growing up. When not working on the farm, Dr. Gissy could be found participating in all sports from football, basketball, baseball, golf, and tennis. After high school he continued his education at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. He majored in exercise physiology where he was fascinated with how the human body worked and the best techniques to achieve peak performance. This was a great foundation to continue his education in chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic located in Port Orange, Florida. There he met the “woman of his dreams”, Dr. Jessica Gissy. On their first meeting Michael told Jessica that she would be his future wife. On 12/13/14 that premonition became reality when they were married in front of their family and closest friends.
Dr. Gissy was diagnosed with scoliosis (curvature of the spine) during his early teen years and had to attend specialists while growing up. This peaked his interest in the human body and he knew he wanted to do something in his life to help people. After research and study, chiropractic was the perfect fit for him to have a platform to provide a drug free, surgery free treatment for patients to achieve their health goals. Dr. Gissy enjoys providing care for all patients and relieving their pain, then providing them wellness care so they can achieve whatever goals they have.
Dr. Michael Gissy graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2014, returned home to West Virginia and began his career as a chiropractor. Since 2014 Dr. Gissy has treated thousands of patients of all ages from wellness care, auto accidents, and workplace injuries. In 2021 Dr. Gissy, his wife (Dr. Jessica Gissy), and two children returned to Florida to enjoy the sunshine and all the beauty the state has to offer. When not in the office you can find Dr. Gissy doing anything he can outside. He enjoys all outdoor activities including fishing, hunting, riding horses, riding ATV’s and spending time with his wife and children. As a husband-and-wife team, the Gissy’s offer a family atmosphere in their Westlake practice and look forward to caring for you and your family.
