At A Better Weigh Medical Weight Loss Center, physician Umair K. Nazeer and his clinical team set patients up for success. Just ask staff nursing manager Chanay Walton, LPN, who lost 42 pounds using their methods. She and the rest of the crew provide one-on-one support during programs that incorporate healthy recipes and tools for lifelong weight management. Before clients begin a regimen, a doctor or nurse performs a thorough medical exam in order to recommend lifestyle changes and the FDA-approved medication that best suits their needs. Vitamin-B12 injections, appetite suppressants such as phentermine, and hCG might be an appropriate choice for some patients, whereas others may require fat-burning chromium supplements or water pills that shed unwanted moisture and fears of the ocean.
Dr. Shanicka Williams has worn a lot of hats in her career. She's served as a traveling physician, worked with the uninsured in a health center, and currently serves as medical director of Georgia Doty Hepatitis/HIV Community Outreach, Inc. And through it all she's held fast to one belief—that patients should not be made to wait for three hours, only to be rushed through an appointment or given cookie-cutter treatment.
That's exactly the type of treatment Dr. Williams hopes to avoid with Divine Aesthetics Medspa & Wellness Center. She's able to give them the individual time and attention they deserve without adhering to a strict office schedule designed to address the needs of a revolving door of patients. Her medical services include everything from monthly visits for chronic diseases, to medication refills, and even referrals to specialists.
In addition to this medically-oriented service, Divine Aesthetics Medspa & Wellness Center also caters to patrons' overall well being with medspa services. With a membership, the staff can provide a variety of massage modalities and facials. In addition to monthly memberships, they can also perform a variety of a la carte services including massages and facials, as well as waxing services for the bikini area, legs, or an unruly shag carpet.

CrossFit e-town's certified coaches guide students through exercises at the crux of every CrossFit workout—functional movements executed at a high intensity. Those movements include everything from pull-ups and weightlifting to rope climbing and squats. Each day, they change up the routine so that muscles can't plateau and students won't get bored and start designating certain floor mats as their "napping area." Besides the complete workout CrossFit offers, instructors teach the system because it readies students for all sports, work, and daily activities. It's also supremely scalable, making it accessible to those of all fitness levels. To initiate new students to the system, they've even designed a beginner course that focuses on fundamentals and safety.
