Our practice began in 1968. Our founder Dr. John P. Willits graduated from the Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa. He moved with his family to the Kansas City area and opened his first practice in downtown Roeland park in the strip shops adjacent to the Roe Bowl that was on 51st just west of Roe. He was there for 2 years.
He then moved the practice into half of the building across from mission mall on Johnson drive just west of Roe. He shared his little 3 room office with the clothing tailor who is still in the building today. Dr. Willits’s good nature, ethical standards and quality of treatment were the foundation of his practice. The practice flourished to a point he needed a bigger office.
A patient who owned the property at 6556 Johnson dr. was moving and offered to sell it to Dr. Willits. The practice relocated to this location in 1975 and still practices out of it today continuing to grow. Due to necessity expansions were added on to the building in the late 2000’s to again accommodate more patients.
In 1988 the second generation, Dr. Brad Willits, joined the practice. He became owner of the practice in 2005. Dr. John Willits continued to practice until his retirement in 2015 after 47 years in practice.
The third generation has now joined the practice. Dr. Ryan Durand came on board in summer of 2018 and has plans to purchase the practice and continue providing high quality, ethical care to our 20,000 plus patients. Mission wellness plans to grow and evolve with community and patient needs and would love for you to become a member of its growing family
