Under the umbrella of Pet Medical Centers, nine Miami-Dade and Broward-area veterinary hospitals provide sophisticated healthcare for furry, feathered, and scaly family members. The hospitals’ specialty services include nonanesthetic dental care, ultrasounds, radiology, and endoscopies. All locations boast surgical operating rooms equipped with windows and cameras to give owners peace of mind, and many of the clinics are equipped with lasers for blade-free incisions. Besides emergency care, the doctors and technicians—some of whom have appeared as specialists on Univision and Animal Planet—perform general wellness examinations and informative nutritional consultations.
Although medical care provides what pets need, boarding services treat pets to what they want. Most locations double as cat and dog hotels, but only one deserves the title of pet resort—at Coral Springs Pet Resort and Medical Center, animals enjoy a climate-controlled dog park with a pool, baths with massaging jets, and expansive canine suites with window views.
Established for more than 30 years, Olympia Gym is more than just a fitness facility with cutting-edge equipment and classes—it's home to family-oriented staffers who truly go out of their way to help others. Owners Delia and Peter Cicale have sought out new and innovative ways to get people into shape, such as Hoist Roc-It machines that adjust to users' movements, kids' karate classes, and Power Plate vibration training that enhances the ability to high-five a jackhammer operator. Their training services are performed by industry experts, including a kickboxing champion and second-degree blackbelt, and they employed Beto Perez as an instructor before he created the international dance-fitness sensation known as Zumba.
But beyond the gym's impressive list of credentials are real, compassionate people. In 1998, the Sun Sentinel documented that the Cicales and their generous aerobics and spinning students raised more than $3,000 in a single Labor Day for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. More recently, the couple hosted three annual events to support breast-cancer awareness. And an article in The Miami Herald reported on two staff members' cross-country bike journey to raise funds for and increase awareness about Parkinson's disease. The trip was planned by Roy Roden, who suffers from the neurodegenerative brain disorder and still works at the gym part time, and his wife Lynn, who is a personal trainer. Gaby Senior specializes in training people with illnesses or age-related concerns such as osteoporosis. Whatever your fitness and health struggles, the gym's down-to-earth crew is likely to understand them.

“My practice is really centered on the individual,” Dr. Amaryllis Pascual told NBC 6 News about her self-named clinic, Pascual MD Med Spa. “What I like to do is set up an initial consultation where I meet with the patient and we go over what their desired results are. I then take a look at their lifestyle and the person as a whole, and we customize a treatment plan that’s going to fit that individual.”
Dr. Pascual and three other on-staff doctors—Dr. Vijay Sharma, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, and Dr. Jorge Gaviria—follow this regimen for each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
