Welcome to East End Chiropractic

New Office Manager – Here to Stay


Some embrace it, some resist it. After going through the five stages of grief when Meghan departed, East End Chiropractic has decided to embrace change. First we had Dr. John running New Office ManagerIMG- Nashville TN- East End Chiropractic-w800-h597around the office, doing it all. Then our friend Chris, the famous patient behind the desk, stepped in to help.

Next is where I come in. I am Katherine, the new office manager here at East End Chiropractic. Dr. John can now focus on what he does best – treating you – and Chris has returned to his position crafting tunes and sleeping late.

A little about me

I am a recent Tennessee transplant originally from Maine. I moved to Nashville in August 2015 with my husband, Wilson, and our two cats, Angus and Calvin. Prior to relocating I earned my degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Maine. While Wilson spends his days in graduate school at Vanderbilt, I have been coming to know and love Nashville. I worked a few odd jobs before finding myself here, comfortably sitting behind the desk at EEC (Dr. John picked a chair with excellent back support).

From this point forward I will be the voice on the phone, the scheduler of appointments, and the gal greeting you in the office. A certified queen of organization and lover of all things structured, I am ready to take on the challenge of navigating the ins and outs of EEC. I am refining my expertise in deciphering insurance benefits and in writing twitter posts, all to better serve you!

If you’d like to learn more about me, check out our MEET THE TEAM page on the website. Better yet, just ask! I love talking about food, things to do around Nashville, and how much cooler the summers are in Maine.

Thank you for understanding as the practice has gone through this period of adjustment. Change can be tough, but you have all taken it in strides!

Patient Poses Behind Desk

I’m Chris. Some of you may have met me, or talked to me on the phone, in the past couple weeks. I’ve been a patient of Patient Poses Behind Desk IMG- Nashville TN- East End ChiropracticDr. John’s since I moved to Nashville almost 3 years ago. He has taken excellent care of me, as I’m sure he has for you as well.

When Meghan Jones – the face that East End patients are accustomed to being greeted by – moved on to a new career recently, I came in for my appointment to find Dr. John quite busy… possibly a bit overwhelmed. He was handling all of the office responsibilities while treating his usual busy schedule of patients. So, I offered to help. I’m a freelancer who’s lucky enough to make my own schedule, so why not get in the good graces of the guy who keeps my neck and shoulders working properly? Right?

I was glad he took me up on it, despite my being entirely unqualified for the position. I’m not a morning person, I have almost zero office experience, and I’m a creative-type — so organizational duties aren’t my strong suit. Regardless of all that, I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity. Not only have I gotten to know Dr. John a bit better, but meeting the people he helps function more effectively and comfortably has been a blast. You are all so friendly!

What I’ve found most inspiring about working at East End Chiropractic is that nobody seems to bring their stress here. It truly is a positive environment. People come in looking forward to chatting with Dr. John, getting treated, and going about their day feeling better. As much as setting an alarm clock for 7:00am pains me, seeing the relief each patient expresses from chiropractic care has made it worth the effort. I leave the office in a great mood each day, feeling like I’ve taken a small part in something that improves people’s lives.

As East End Chiropractic’s new office manager prepares to begin her tenure, I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who’s welcomed me, engaged me in conversation, and shown patience with me while I’ve tried to fill the shoes of a true pro.

Thanks! See you in the waiting room!

Goodbye + Thank You

Change is not easy and saying goodbye is even harder. So it is with some sadness and much gratitude that I say goodbye to my role as East End Chiropractic’s office manager. Meghan jones-nashville tn-east end chiropractic-w800-h800-325x216-w800-h597

It has been such a pleasure to meet the amazing people who have come through this office to receive relief for pain. I have loved getting to know you, helping you understand insurance, catch up about life and kids and school and so many other things. Thank you for trusting me to take care of your scheduling needs and so much more. I feel like I am saying goodbye to an extended family!

As for saying goodbye to Dr. John, or Dr. J as I call him, this is the hardest. I came here to work part time in a season of life that was very difficult for me. Everyone was super patient with me as I learned the ins and outs of working again. Dr. J led with a lot of grace and patience. As my role here has grown, his trust in my ability to manage this office has grown too and I am grateful for this. My time here at East End has helped me get my feet back on the ground and I cannot say thanks enough. I will continue to sing the praises of Dr. J and will recommend him, always, to those who ask me about chiropractic care.

I am staying here in Nashville and will be working at The Dispensary of Hope, a non-profit organization that connects surplus medications to organizations serving the poor and uninsured. I am sure that I will be back to East End for an adjustment from time to time and I hope to see some of you when I do.

One final note: if you are a regular patient of Dr. J’s or even a potential new patient, please send some encouraging words his way as he navigates the office on his own until he finds a new office manager. If you call and don’t get an answer right away, please call back. You can also send an email to to schedule appointments.

THANK YOU for making my time here so fulfilling.

A Farewell to one of our Favorites

This week, we will be saying goodbye to one of the best: Dr. Lauren Calabra. Since joining our office in April of 2014, she has been a valuable asset and will be greatly missed. Dr. Calabra has gone above and beyond what is usually expected at a chiropractic visit. Not only is she excellent with her adjustments, but she listens well to her patients’ needs and gives at home exercises and creates a personal core building regimen for those that want one.

Dr Lauren Calabra - Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

She will spend hours researching a particular patient problem and will send an email with her findings. She has been committed to each patients’ wellness overall. Her services provided have enriched our office and brought in people otherwise skeptical of chiropractic care. Outside of the office, Dr. Calabra has been a part of running clubs around Nashville that many East End patients are members of as well. She has cheered on patients as they run, helped promote chiropractic care at the East Nashville Farmers’ Market, and participated in many charity walks/runs on behalf of East End Chiropractic. She has been one of the best advocates for this profession. Dr. Calabra is moving on to other adventures and we are looking forward to hearing about all the new things that are coming her way. If you are a current patient of Dr. Calabra’s and would like any forwarding information, please feel free to contact the office and we will be happy to provide that information to you. If you are new to chiropractic care or haven’t seen a chiropractor in a while, we are still taking new patients. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment!
