Dr. Ognjen Petras wants you to have nice nails. The board-certified internist founded his specialty medical practice, Petras Medical Clinic, to focus on onychomycosis—fungal nail infections—which he says affects 20% of Bay Area residents. After removing nail material that is thickened, infected, or has a bad attitude, Dr. Petras battles fungal infections with the PinPointe laser system, which reaches into the nail bed to stop the infection at the source. He has performed more than 1,000 laser treatments since 2009 and has followed numerous patients for a year or more to ensure the effectiveness of the laser system.

Pilates has done well as an exercise modality, offering participants the opportunity to stretch and sweat, without needing the range of motion or Zen-like focus of yoga. As if to prove the point, Core Pilates and Physical Therapy on 17th is always bustling with nearby locals looking to work through the typical Pilates routine. Of course, the busy look might stem from the diminutive class sizes (ten or fewer students per session) held inside this 2,000 square foot studio space. Spare and simply laid out, the healing vibe radiates throughout even the most basic cardio regimen, thanks in part to other options like restorative techniques and relaxing massage therapy.
