In 1968, Dr. Kunal Shah and Dr. Robert Frohn opened an optometry business fresh out of medical school. More than 40 years later, their treatments have advanced and their office has grown, but their mission hasn't changed. To this day, they still put each patient’s eye care first, using their combined 60 years of experience to customize treatments for each patient. Their services range from comprehensive examinations to remedies for astigmatism, dry-eye syndrome, and macular degeneration, all provided by staff who speak both English and Spanish. The doctors even treat specialized cases, helping patients in need of low-vision and pediatric optometry. They also venture into complex treatments, such as LASIK and cataract surgery, with the use of advanced technology. After exams or procedures, patients in need of glasses can pick out a new pair of frames in an onsite eyewear boutique featuring brands such as Gucci, Ray Ban, Coach, and more, and fill their new prescriptions thanks to the office’s lens-sculpting services.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
Los Cerritos Optometry's Dr. Chenh Vong and his staffers—who speak English, Armenian, Spanish, and Vietnamese—keep eyes healthy with services such as routine eye exams and myopia control, giving patients a wide range of options for addressing prescription changes. After the doctor checks them for eye problems such as glaucoma or 1-D vision, patients can pop in a pair of contact lenses or slip on a pair of stylish frames from Gucci, Coach, or Prada to pull back the veil of encroaching blurriness.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
From professional athletes to months-old babies, the chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists at All Pro Health Center use their expertise to maximize wellness and body function. The center is the official sports-medicine and health-care center for both the California Quake women's tackle-football team and the Pacific Warriors women's professional football organization, and resident Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Feng has an extensive background in sports medicine. After training at UCLA as a member of the Bruins' sports-medicine program, Dr. Feng served on the medical teams of both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Chiefs. His voice may sound familiar from the local radio shows in which he discusses developments in the field of sports medicine, such as solar-powered athletic benches that warm themselves.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and needle-free acupuncture, Dr. Feng and his colleagues treat sports injuries or everyday ailments with a range of manual and high-tech therapies. A certified practitioner performs active-release techniques, a patented soft tissue-based massage system that alleviates pain emanating from overused muscles. The crew also offers relief via physical therapy, kinesiotaping, and cold-laser therapy.
