After graduation, Dr. Thad worked as a research coordinator at the Medical University of South Carolina while his wife was completing her master's degree in occupational therapy.
Dr. Thad's first real exposure to chiropractic was when his brother, Dr. Hayes, was completing a comparative research study at Wofford College. He began spending time at a local chiropractor's office and was drawn in to chiropractic's holistic and proactive approach to health and wellness. This discovery led him to decide to attend chiropractic school with his brother.
Dr. Thad graduated valedictorian of his chiropractic class at Life University in Marietta, Georgia where he was extensively trained in neurostructural chiropractic. During his third year of school, he was exposed to pediatric chiropractic and discovered his true passion. Dr. Thad immediately began advanced training in pediatrics and is in the final stages of completing his advanced certification in pediatric, prenatal, and family practice.

Dr Hayes Modlin - Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Hayes Modlin was born and raised in Hickory, NC and received his doctor of chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, GA, where he graduated 5th in his class. While in school he extensively studied neurostructural chiropractic in order to help correct patients' primary underlying conditions, not just their surface symptoms. Additionally, Dr. Hayes has always had a passion for children, and while in school he saw a need for more chiropractors in this area. He began taking elective courses to learn specialty techniques to help treat infants, adolescents, and pregnant women. Following graduation, he continued this study and has nearly finished all of the required coursework toward an advanced pediatric, prenatal, and family certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Dr. Hayes is already Webster certified has been contributing to chiropractic research since before graduation.
Dr. Hayes first became interested in chiropractic while doing a comparative healthcare internship during his Junior year at Wofford College. He continued pursing this interest after receiving a summer research grant to further study the uses and benefits of chiropractic. The result of this work was so convincing that he decided to become a chiropractor himself. It was during his time at Wofford that Dr. Hayes also first fell in love with the Greenville area
, and he was very excited to be able to permanently return to the upstate.
When not at the office, Dr. Hayes loves spending time with his incredible wife, Jessie, and their wonderful baby girl, Ellie, who just turned one. He also enjoys playing tennis, ultimate frisbee, camping (he is also an Eagle Scout), and board games. He and his family currently attend Grace Church and are looking forward to becoming more involved there.
