When non-life-threatening medical trouble arises, MedSpring’s immediate-care physicians provide quick treatment without the long waits of the emergency room or the difficulty in securing last-second appointments with a primary-care physician. The center's medical staff prescribes treatments for allergies and coughs, treats fever and flu, and tends to broken bones and sprains. Walk-ins and same-day appointments accommodate all manner of unexpected injuries, and next-day appointments accommodate injuries foretold by fortune cookies. Complimentary beverages and snacks nourish family members as they await their loved ones' treatments. Patients, meanwhile, are tended to in private suites furnished with couches, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and coloring tables to amuse children. Unlike a search-and-rescue st. bernard, MedSpring accepts most major insurance plans. Patients are also asked to fill out a brief written survey and with their permission, MedSpring posts good and bad reviews to their website.
Precision Podiatry's foot-focused physicians take a conservative and informed approach to podiatric medicine. Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, Dr. Brenda Cohen, and Dr. Jon Smedley each strive to find the treatments that will set patients back on their feet as soon as possible, often harnessing podiatric technologies—such as lasers and orthotics—that offer alternatives to surgery or traveling via somersaults. For serious ailments, the doctors call on their years of training to perform more involved procedures such as reconstructive surgery and bunion removal.
The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
The board-certified ocular experts at Hill Country Eye Center sharpen vision with LASIK and PRK outpatient procedures to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After greeting patients with a consultation and a series of coded blinks to set them at ease, the LASIK procedure begins with a laser creating a circular flap on the surface of the cornea. The doctor folds the flap back to allow a cool laser to reshape the cornea, refocusing entering light in a process designed to vastly improve vision and eliminate the need to wear contact lenses and socket-size crystal balls. Alternatively, PRK applies the laser's sculptural powers directly to the surface of the cornea, with no need to cut a flap. Patients can click here to learn more about the procedure.

An individualized hand-tenderizing session from one of Sullivan's certified massage therapists targets whatever's paining you, reducing both the suffering of chronic conditions, such as arthritis and back ache, as well as undoing sports-induced injuries and boosting flexibility. Additionally, a massage's constant, gentle pressing and pushing can finally convince long-encamped stress-knots and perennial muscle cramps that this cohabitation is so over, and that they should just take their things and leave. Sullivan has special massage tables designed to accommodate pregnant women and men who accidentally inhaled a 10-pound ham.
