The board-certified doctors, dieticians, and medical assistants at Last12Pounds shoo away stubborn weight with a signature regimen of tests, diet plans, and injections. After preliminary blood tests and physician consultations scrutinize patients’ health and saucy-merengue heartbeats, dieticians craft customized exercise and meal plans based upon individual tastes and nutritional needs. B12-vitamin elixirs aim to infuse dieters with extra energy, and doses of the hormone HCG boast an ability to make the hypothalamus burn stored fat and spur the metabolism. A final assessment and weigh-in rounds out each treatment to let patients admire their progress.

Jim Pruchniewski peered down his leg at his blackened toes. He'd been rushed to the hospital after a blizzard waylaid him on a mountainside in Lake Placid. "You have third-degree frostbite," the doctor confirmed. "We'll have to amputate." Fortunately for Jim and his digits, the US Olympic ski team was training nearby. The team's podiatrist hurried to the hospital like a long-lost lover hurries to interrupt a wedding before the end of a movie. "Stop!" he might have shouted as the buzz saw probably descended toward the patient's toes. The hero, our Olympic podiatrist, examined the foot and concluded that the damage was superficial. The toes would recover. And they did. The episode moved Jim Pruchniewski, a former biology teacher, to earn his medical degree. Over the last 20 years, he's gained fourfold board certification in podiatric orthopedics, surgery, primary care, and the treatment of diabetic foot wounds. At North Lakeland Foot Clinic, he examines feet with the same attention that saved his toes decades ago. He and his staff do everything in their power to keep feet healthy and, in the case of diabetic patients, avert extreme measures like amputation.

Dr. Resnik's skincare ambitions are vast, covering everything from medical concerns such as psoriasis and alopecia to cosmetic desires and skin conditions such as scar management and moles. Ever tech-savvy, the doctor's staff mans lasers to nix unwanted stretch marks and sun spots, and they also summon a Naturalipo liposuction machine, a skin-lightening system, and a stock of dermal fillers to do their bidding.
