    Board-certified in family medicine, Dr. Faiz Shareef believes good health requires a multidisciplinary approach that addresses physical and emotional needs. To create an environment that caters to all aspects of holistic well-being, he assembled staff members who specialize in everything from aesthetics and massage to fitness and weight loss. The technicians refine skin tone and texture with laser treatments, and the fitness instructors bolster confidence while leading core-toning and limb-lengthening yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Bodywork services, such as therapeutic massage and acupuncture, target the chronic aches and pains caused by daily stress or nightly caber-toss competitions, and the center?s weight-loss plans motivate patients to live healthier lifestyles.

    At Lipo Laser, physician and surgeon Dr. Nicolas Sanez performs noninvasive, nonsurgical laser treatments as an alternative to liposuction. He employs the i-Lipo Ultra system, a low-level laser device that addresses specific areas of stubborn fat and cellulite. The system leaves skin feeling smooth thanks to a combination of infrared rays, vacuum massage, and voiceover narration by Al Green, and is often used to contour trouble spots that have not responded to other weight-loss methods.

  • Gailmard Eye Center
    Possessing 20/20 vision may be considered perfect, a level of visual acuity reserved for Navy pilots and the bald eagles that train them, but in fact it's not even close to average. Developed by Dutch optometrist Hermann Snellen in the 1860s, the 20/20 standard is a somewhat arbitrary distinction. After inventing his now-iconic eye chart?which consists of lines of standardized letters that get progressively smaller?Snellen also instituted the concept of a ratio to define the clarity of a patient's vision. The denominator represents how many feet away a person of normal visual acuity could stand while still discerning the letters with the same level of clarity as the patient. In other words, 20/40 vision means the patient needs to stand 20 feet away to make out the same size letters as a person with standard vision can from 40 feet. Because the 20/20 standard is arbitrary, many people actually have considerably better eyesight, represented by such ratios as 20/15 or 20/10. In fact, in the U.S., the average visual acuity is sharper than 20/20 until about age 60 or 70, when people's vision naturally starts to decline as their bangs finally grow past their eyes. Also, though it's useful for determining basic shortcomings of vision, an eye chart can't diagnose a proper glasses or contact prescription. To determine that, optometrists test many other factors, including depth perception, peripheral vision, x-ray vision, and focusing skills.
