Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.

Celebrating Women Center’s head, Dr. Adrienne Lara, has created a practice where women of all ages can feel respected and well-cared-for when they need a doctor’s attention. Dr. Lara, who did her residency at Harvard, can care for her patients’ health starting in adolescence, when routine exams are the standard. During their reproductive years, she can assist with preconceptual counseling, prenatal care, and preventative gynecological checkups. For patients in later adulthood, the doctor can help draw up a plan to comfortably transition into menopause. In addition to looking after patients’ health, Dr. Lara also offers aesthetic services to help boost adult patients’ confidence. The medical-grade treatments include dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, which can smooth fine lines and add volume to the face for a more youthful look. The center’s HD liposuction treatment is a delicate process that can remove unwanted fat from problem areas with only 72 hours of downtime—fewer days than it would take to bake loaves of bread in the shapes of those same problem areas.
Ophthalmologic accomplishments and accolades abound on Dr. Paul Nazemi's CV. During his journey to become a board-certified fellow of the American Board of Ophthalmology, he studied at USC's Doheny Eye Institute and by the side of a world-renowned oculoplastic surgeon. He's presented lectures, published articles, and researched faster ways to diagnose eye diseases, such as 3D testing and running everywhere. In addition to performing eyelid lifts, treating conditions such as cataracts, dry eyes, and eye injuries, and detecting and managing glaucoma at Thousand Oaks Eye Center, he's also a clinical instructor in the USC Department of Ophthalmology.
True to its name, Complete Foot Care hosts a team of technicians focused completely on treating foot ailments. Led by Dr. Nazila Eshraghi, they deal handily with wound care, sports injuries, bunions, and in-grown toenails. One of the newest additions to their arsenal is a GenesisPlus laser, which they deploy to deal with unsightly toenail-fungus. Not only is this laser treatment effective and pain free; it also means patients don't have to worry about the side effects of prescription pills, the hassle of topical ointments, or the risks of dipping one's toes into random half-filled beakers in the high school chem lab.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
