Scottsdale Center for Sight's founder, Dr. Paul M. Petelin, knows eye surgery?he's completed more than 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and is often the one other doctors go to when they're faced with a challenging case in their own practices. With Dr. Petelin at the helm, the center's patients can rest easy, whether they're getting a quick eye exam or going in for a more significant treatment. Dr. Petelin clarifies vision with cataract and lens-implant surgery, and diagnoses and treats glaucoma and age-related retinal diseases through surgery, medication, or laser treatments. As one of the first in the state to perform all-laser LASIK, the center specializes in bladeless LASIK corrective surgery, which is said to result in fewer surgical complications and gives patients more peace of mind.
Dr. Kenneth Pettit has flourished in every corner of the medical world, from treating ailments as a family practitioner, urgent-care physician, and hospice provider to brightening outer beauty as the medical director for Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine. A member of both the American Medical Association and the American Osteopathic Association, Dr. Pettit has appeared at or near the top of the Ahwatukee Foothills News's Top Doctor poll every year since 2007, landing in the top three in 2008 and 2009 and winning the crown outright in 2007 and 2010-13.

At Rejuvenation Medical Spa, Dr. Michael J. Depenbusch uses his more than 20 years of experience to guide his technicians and aestheticians as they revitalize clientele with medical-grade products from Latisse, Jane Iredale skincare, and SkinMedica. The facility?s spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, help reveal a youthful gleam in clients of all ages. Services such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, Allergan Botox, and lip enhancements also do their part, reducing and removing wrinkles so they can return to adding character to poorly pressed pants.
Former chief resident in plastic surgery at University of Cincinnati and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Khang N. Thai taps into a medical fountain of youth, rejuvenating weathered visages with the latest aesthetic medical procedures. Each Botox treatment begins with a personal consultation that determines if the patient is eligible for injections, before giving them advice on whether smooth of crunchy peanut butter makes the better facial cream. All skin-spackling candidates will then receive a series of injections that can help smooth wrinkles for areas such as crow’s-feet or between the eyebrows. Any patients not eligible for the procedure will receive a full refund.
When Ellen Latham developed Orangetheory Fitness, she knew she needed passionate trainers and ample equipment, but her greatest tool would be plain science. Drawing on her background as a degreed physiologist, as well as a personal trainer, TV fitness personality, and exercise columnist, she created a regimen to induce excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC for short.
By blasting different muscle groups with intense intervals of exercise before performing fatigue-level strength training with free-weights, Latham’s system inspires the body to keep consuming calories well after the workout has ended in an effort to help muscles recover. Classes last 60-minutes, with any given interval lasting between 10- and 30-minutes. Students rotate between treadmills, suspension harnesses, free-weights, and rowing machines, which strengthen arms and cores by simulating the sensation of rowing through a river of hot glue.
The medical team at Lifeline Internal Medicine incorporates both traditional Western medicine and naturopathic methods to care for patients.

Doctor of naturopathic medicine Cori Kennedy specializes in anti-aging and wellness treatments such as bio-identical hormone therapy and HCG weight-loss plans, and she is certified in the use of the Cynosure Elite laser for procedures including hair reduction, skincare, and the treatment of spider veins. Certified laser technician and licensed cosmetologist Amla Dhamdhere uses SkinMedica products to perform customized facials and blot out signs that you've dipped your face in a bucket of sprinkles.
