Dr. Joseph Clarino
DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC, EXPERT IN CELLULAR HEALING
After a college career in football, Dr. Joe realized that his body and health would not have made it through the physical battles on and off the field, if not for the chiropractic care he had received regularly since he was 12 years old. After graduating from Towson State College, Dr. Clarino’s strong passion for chiropractic brought him immediately to Life University in Marietta, GA where he met his future wife, Dr. Deb Cirone.
Several years into practicing chiropractic at their large family practice in Sugar Hill, Dr. Clarino was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. Rather than running in fear toward the medicine that might make him feel better momentarily, he leaned into his faith and knowledge of how the human body functions and heals. Through relentless research, training, and the care that he received from other functional medicine doctors, Dr. Joe has been led down a new path, going from a life of pain and disease to one of health, freedom, and inspiration like he never imagined. Since 2011, Dr. Joe has been free of the disease that had once diminished his life experience and has helped countless others in their quest for restored health through nutrition and functional medicine.
“I have learned through my own journey and through those that I had led down their own path, that this is not the path of least resistance.”
Since 2011, Dr Clarino has guided countless others in their journey from pain to optimal health as an expert in cellular healing. He has trained under great leaders in the industry such as Dr. Dan Pompa of Health Centers of the Future and Dr. Gez Agoli of Progressive Medical Centers of America. Currently, Dr. Joe is in the process of filming a reality TV show based on Faith & Health, called one-on-one with Damon Davis. It can be found on TBN. Here Dr Clarino along with Dr Joe Christiano, author of Eat Right For Your Blood Type, shares his expertise and advice with Damon on his journey back to health, while sharing with the world how they too can get healthy almost regardless of the state of health they are currently in.
Both Dr. Joe and Dr. Deb are a part of a great chiropractic community associated with Life University where they teach, mentor, and speak at events for both students and doctors in the profession.
Dr. Deb Cirone
CO-FOUNDER AND CO-OWNER OF ALIGNLIFE OF SUGAR HILL
Dr. Cirone comes from a large family of chiropractors. Having been adjusted since birth, she had experienced, firsthand chiropractic’s ability to enable the body to heal naturally, without the use of drugs and surgery. This led her to chase her own dreams of becoming a chiropractor herself. Dr. Cirone met the man who would become her husband (Dr. Joe Clarino) in high school and they both graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1998. Dr. Cirone soon followed her doctorate with a Fellowship with the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. Following an overwhelming prompt from God, they ended up setting up their practice, against all odds, in the wonderful town of Sugar Hill, GA in 1999, where they have a consistently thriving family practice.
“The answer to health does not come from treating symptoms with potions and pills from your medicine cabinet.”
A note from Dr. Cirone:
“If you’ve never tried chiropractic or have had a less than desirable experience with chiropractic I challenge you to give our office a try and see finally, that the answer to health does not come from treating symptoms with potions and pills from your medicine cabinet. Health comes from within and chiropractic can help you to restore it the life and health that you and your family have been missing out on.”
Dr. Brandon Faieta
DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC
Dr. Brandon Faieta graduated from Life University’s Doctorate program in June 2020. Before beginning his chiropractic journey, he attended West Virginia University (Go ‘Eers!) for his BS in Exercise Physiology. During his senior year at WVU, he worked as an exercise physiologist in a local physical therapist’s office as well as for WVU medicine, aiding patients as a rehabilitation technician.
Dr. Brandon always knew he was called to serve and help others and this is what primarily drove him to health care. After shadowing several chiropractors in his area, he fell in love with the philosophy we know to be true. Simply put, we all have a powerful innate intelligence in us given to us by God that allows the body to heal itself from the inside out when freed of interference. This is what initially led him down the chiropractic path. Later, his driving force and his “why” was fueled after learning that chiropractic care can have a major impact on scoliotic patients since his sister suffered from scoliosis at a young age and had three rods surgically placed in her back. At the time, they were unaware of the benefits chiropractic could have prior to the surgery. His mission is to serve his community, help the increasing numbers of those searching for alternative conservative options–like his sister, and continue to spread his knowledge and love for chiropractic to others.
When Dr. Brandon is not in the office, you will most likely find him relaxing at a local coffee shop, playing spikeball, or spending time outdoors with his girlfriend Shaleigh and their cavapoo puppy Cannoli.

GREAT HEALTH AWAITS YOU.
LET’S GET STARTED.
Check out the many ways we help you reach your best health.
Living the chiropractic life is so much more than getting rid of back or neck pain. It’s all about having a full, healthy, and active life!
Schedule a chat with us.
Come learn how we can help you get back to pain-free and reaching your health goals.
We’ll go over your health history, current lifestyle and habits, and what it is that brought you in to see us. Many times we can trace the underlying cause to an undetected subluxation (or misalignment in the spine) that happened earlier in life. That’s why regular chiropractic checks for you (and your family!) are crucial to your overall health. It can also save you a lot of aches, pains, and money in the long run.
Get a personalized plan for better results faster.
We’ll work to create the very best plan for you so we can help meet your health goals. Typically, this includes more than chiropractic visits! It will also show you how to fill the gaps in your nutrition and highlight any lifestyle changes that need to be made to keep you from falling back into pain. We’ll also give you exercises you can do on your own at home to help you build strength and flexibility and keep your adjustments longer.
