We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Hannah Winn-Milrany and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Hannah, how do you think about risk?
Our office is very different than the typical chiropractic practice. We have no set fees for care. Patients pay based on their particular financial means. This means that there is no max or min and that theoretically, people could be unfair with the payments they choose to make. However, the environment we have created is that of a family. People love and respect what we do, and in return, they value care and pay what they truly can afford. It was very risky setting up a business model this way because many thought we would be taken advantage of. However, it has proven to be such a blessing to both the community as well as the providers. It allows us to care for entire families, rather than the individual who “needs it most”.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX. I attended Texas A&M University for my undergraduate education…Gig ‘Em! While there, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Business Administration and then went on to become a licensed Emergency Medical Technician. I continued my education at Parker University in Dallas, TX. I graduated Magna Cum Laude as a Doctor of Chiropractic in addition to obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness. My youngest sister, Kaylah, was born with a rare chromosome disorder (Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome 4p-) when I was 5 years old. I recognized at a very young age that I wanted to spend my life helping people overcome obstacles, just as Kaylah’s doctors had helped her. I had always assumed this path would be as a medical doctor. It wasn’t until the tail-end of undergrad that I was introduced to the impact I could make without the use of drugs or surgery as a doctor of chiropractic. I was blown away with the philosophy, art, and science of chiropractic and quickly fell in love with my future profession. The innate ability of the body to heal itself is incredible! I am continually blessed by what I experience with patients on a daily basis. Being a first generation college graduate and one of 8 children, schooling wasn’t necessarily easy. I had to navigate that path all on my own financially and strategically. I applied meticulously for scholarships and worked several jobs throughout my schooling. I ended up right where I’m supposed to be and I couldn’t be more amazed with what God has allowed me to do with my life.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Fort Worth is best known for the Stockyards. A whole day could be spent perusing the unique shops that sell country attire and handmade items. A staple for dinner is Joe T Garcia’s, where the atmosphere is so fun. I would take them dancing or to a concert at Billy Bob’s. Other main attractions in the metroplex are the Dallas Cowboys & Texas Rangers stadiums and Six Flags park.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Dr. Rachel Whaley deserves more than a shoutout! She exudes loving service in all she does. She fiercely serves her community in any way possible and has built an incredible, high volume, box-on-the-wall practice that allows anyone to afford regular chiropractic care. She is the most selfless person I know. I am incredibly blessed to have met her and to serve patients by her side each day.
