Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services?including glucose readings, health screenings, and wellness tests?before sending them to an off-site laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24?48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn?t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary care physicians for further analysis.
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 technology at Bluebonnet Diagnostic Imaging makes the human body as easy to read as an open book. The venue's sonographers wield Medison scanning technology to peer past the skin, conducting diagnostic tests as well as 3D ultrasound sessions. With the help of a radiologist, they can examine organs such as the kidneys, heart, and liver for medical ailments. The OB-GYN department, meanwhile, rewards expectant mothers with an early look at their babies, filming ultrasound sessions and capturing the infant's likeness in still photographs. These appointments—which won the center the 2012 Austin Birth Award for Best Ultrasound Clinic—also typically determine the child's sex and, if the feet are visible, whether or not it already knows how to moonwalk. Family and friends can accompany moms-to-be for their scan, and a children's play area occupies fidgety youngsters.
Diet and exercise don’t always slim down trouble spots, and they rarely do so with any measure of speed. Georgetown Lipo Laser Treatment Center expedites the weight-loss process with noninvasive Zerona body-sculpting treatments, which have been featured on The Doctors. During the treatments, cool light from Zerona lasers target problem areas to shrink inches off bodies, often yielding visible results after one treatment. Aestheticians offer other services, such as the all-natural Herbalogica contouring body wrap, which slims bodies while flushing toxins with gentle pressure, the same kind of pressure UN diplomats put on other UN diplomats when they tickle each other for the sake of economic policy.
A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing. Typically found inside retail stores, RediClinics don't require any appointments, making walk-in service as seamless as the plot of most Newhart fan fiction. In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
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.
