Dr. Andrew Willis
Dr. Andrew Willis was born in Orefield, Pennsylvania, and grew up an hour North of the Philadelphia area before moving to Tampa.

He chose to pursue an education in the healthcare field and graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Dr. Willis chose to further his studies and proceeded to study chiropractic at Life University in Atlanta, GA, where his diagnostic, X-Ray, and patient management skills flourished.
