Dr. Xavier was born and raised by his parents Melvyn and Maria in San Juan Puerto Rico, USA. He has a brother, Misael, who also is his business partner at his educational ventures. Early in his life, Dr. Xavier was attracted to healing arts and human services. At 16 years of age, he was already a volunteer for the red cross, working for the Hurricane Hugo response in 1989. He became an EMT and first aid instructor for the first time by age 17.
After finishing high school, he went to pursue his BS in Biology. Also, at that time he continued with his EMS studies becoming a Paramedic by age 20. He worked as a paramedic, paramedic instructor, and then flight paramedic for the next 18 years of his career. As a flight medic, he was able to travel the world while taking care of critically ill patients in the international setting. At this time, he was also a paramedic at Guaynabo City Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and became an instructor for the American Heart Association (AHA) for the Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Life Support, and all the other AHA educational programs. He also became a College Level Paramedic Instructor, and then program director.
He recalls the turning point in his life when he was flying a patient at 42,000 feet over the sea level feeling that “This is the highest that I will ever be in this career”, so he decided to go back and finish his pre-medical work to get his doctorate in medicine. By the year 2001 was admitted in Xochicalco medical School in Baja California, Mexico, where he graduated as Medico Cirujano (Medicine Doctor
Surgery Minor). While in medical school, he got married to his wife Yanira, an amazing woman he met when working as a paramedic before. At this time, he became the stepfather of Joel and Danyarel and then they beget two wonderful kids of their own, Allison and Arthur.
While in medical school, he kept training and developing in the EMS and safety field, becoming part of the National Disaster Medical Assistance Team in San Diego, CA, and taking multiple disasters and advance emergency courses. He also dedicated time to pursue one of his passions, to serve as a missionary, becoming part of relief teams to underdeveloped countries; and later he became DRASI International Missions Medical Director. He graduated from Xochicalco Medical School in BC, Mexico by 2007.
A year later, Dr. X returned to Puerto Rico, and very soon after, he became the director of an emergency medical service college program. This position allowed him to oversee the training of paramedics and directing the medical response for big events. Also, he served as an instructor for disaster response, government public health agencies, and medical personnel. In 2011 he founded Educatevirtual Learning Centers with his brother, an online health professionals training portal. By 2014 he moves back to California with his family where he served as an instructor for Loma Linda University, and later for Critical Care Training Center in North Hollywood California.
While working as an instructor he sought going back into patient care, but this time he chose to pursue his second doctorate, now in Chiropractic Medicine. Chiropractic medicine was more aligned with his life philosophy and understanding of healing; plus, his own experience with chiropractic had made a big impact on his health. After graduation, he worked as an associate for renowned and respected practices in California.
In June 2020, gave him the opportunity of developing his practice withing the Ideal Spine Health Center he founded Back 2 Work Clinic in the Treasure Valley, Eagle, Idaho.
