Meet Dr Gilmer


Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

Dr. Gilmer earned both his Bachelor of Science and his Master of Science degrees at East Tennessee State University. He went on to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  He is licensed in the state of Tennessee and is nationally board certified.

Forging a Friendship With Dr. Peeks

In June of 2020, Dr. Gilmer and his wife Jennifer decided to purchase Peeks Chiropractic. Dr. Gilmer met Dr. Edward J. Peeks in 2011 when he discovered they shared appreciation for the work of Dr. Vern Pierce. Dr. Pierce was a pioneer in the development of chiropractic analysis. Dr. Gilmer and Dr. Peeks’ friendship has grown as Dr. Gilmer has learned and implemented much from Dr. Peek’s decades of work.

"I hope to build on Dr. Peeks’ remarkable legacy of providing specific chiropractic adjustments and to carry on the same values, passion, and genuine care for his patients that he has provided over the past 45 years."

Enjoying Family Life

When he’s not at the practice, Dr. Gilmer enjoys spending time with his wife Jennifer and their three children— Merrin, Rowan and Archer. Dr. Gilmer grew up in Elizabethton and met Jennifer at ETSU.

Having grown up in East Tennessee, Dr. Gilmer feels grateful to have been able to return here to raise his family and do work that he loves.
