Alabama Vision Center doesn’t have one single sight specialist on staff. They have six. The team of ODs, MDs, and an Au.D. draws upon varying skill sets and a staff of 32 technicians and office professionals to provide services ranging from LASIK vision correction to bifocal implants recommended for those with presbyopia or very tiny books. The technology on hand is unparalleled as well, with lasers that help with everything from blade-free corneal surgery to cataract removal to treatment for wet macular degeneration.
Of course, keeping eyesight healthy and strong from the get-go is the staff's number-one priority, and so they offer comprehensive exams that begin with an external inspection of the eyes and surrounding tissue, and end with a tonometry test to identify signs of glaucoma. In between, doctors take note of tracking abilities, visual field, refractive abilities, and colorblindness, and also perform an ophthalmoscopy test, where they inspect the retina to check for any detachment or sudden changes in its mood. A free hearing screening is also included with each patient's first visit, keeping jealous ears from feeling like eyes get all the attention.
A board-certified family-medicine physician, Dr. Elizabeth Campbell Korcz's medical experience has taught her that a more holistic approach is called for when treating patients. While working toward graduating first in her class at the Morehouse School of Medicine, she studied under a Taiwanese physician learning acupuncture and took advantage of opportunities to explore natural and herbal medical techniques. Now she owns and manages Hoover Alt MD, where she teams up with a talented ensemble of nurses, personal trainers, and other specialists to dispense comprehensive care that recognizes the connection between mind, body, and spirit.
Her staff follows step with her holistic approach, treating patients with traditional services, such as internal medicine and pediatric care, as well as alternative practices, such as yoga, sensory stimulation, and hypnosis. In addition to health concerns, the team assuages aesthetic woes with dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Botox, and Dysport. And by using organic Eminence and Obagi products, they proffer treatments that not only care for patients but also Mother Nature.
What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
With more than 30 years of experience in general surgery—plus nearly a decade focused on vascular surgery—Dr. James Isobe and his staff help patients overcome the physical discomfort and cosmetic issues caused by spider and varicose veins. The vein center specializes in minimally invasive treatments, starting with duplex ultrasound diagnostics that can painlessly assess vein health. Based on the results, Baptist Vein Center recommends therapies such as endovenous laser treatment, which collapses varicose veins with laser energy. Spider veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy, both a procedure involving injections and the final word in most spelling bees.
For those seeking to spruce up appearances without surgery, Infinity Med-I-Spa's options are—true to the company's name—virtually infinite. For one, there are its numerous aesthetic lasers, which can remove hair, wrinkles, spider veins, tattoos, Mattel logos, and a range of other blemishes quickly and effectively. Facial treatments ranging from classic microdermabrasion to cutting-edge services such as the VI Peel and the Jet Peel rid pores of impurities and smooth over signs of aging, while medical weight loss services help clients shed inches with meal replacement shakes, medications, and vitamin injections.
Beyond enhancing the outside, the med-spa also helps clients feel better on the inside. Licensed massage therapists ease nagging pains and chronic tension with a range of modalities, from traditional strokes such as Swedish and deep-tissue to Eastern-inspired therapies such as energy work.
