Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Derek Shadid helms Shadid Plastic Surgery Associates, combining his medical knowledge with modern technology to give patients their desired results with the minimal amount of discomfort. Shadid lends skilled hands to procedures that sculpt and contour the entire body or focus on facial features. But not all of the surgeon's procedures are surgical—an on-site medical spa welcomes clients for less invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections that smooth lines from frowning or excessive winking. And while experienced nurse-aestheticians administer many of the med-spa treatments, Shadid always takes part in patients’ initial consultations and oversees their care.
At Rejuvena Cosmetic Medical Center, Joan M. Hardt, M.D. performs all injections that help patients shed pounds, years, and unhealthy lifestyles, using a variety of treatments, including dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse and botulinum toxin such as Botox and Xeomin. They boast a considerable amount of expertise in the realm of laser treatments. They wield more than a dozen different kinds, each one geared to specifically treat a certain skin condition or type.
Kyle, a member of the Rejuvena team, tells the story of the business through customer reactions, rather than technical specifications. In particular, he recalls "a patient who was crying in the office from overwhelming joy about how [she] had changed her life, with just a little kick start from a Slimlipo procedure." He ranks it among the best reactions he's ever seen to their services, though not unique in its sentiment.

Doctor of Chiropractic Marcus Favorite adheres to the traditional chiropractic philosophy: to help the body heal itself. At Favorite Chiropractic, he aims to accomplish this goal by freeing the brain-body communication that can become disrupted by out-of-position vertebrae or really tight shirt collars. Disks can occasionally slip, limiting the spinal cord’s ability to transmit signals to the muscles and organs and causing illness. During adjustments, the doctor applies careful pressure to strategically shift these disks back into place, thereby triggering the body’s natural healing processes. Dr. Favorite’s sure hands and gentle disposition can help alleviate a range of ailments for patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
The team of medical personnel at Allen Medical, composed of a pulmonary physician and two nurse practitioners, promotes overall health and wellness with full-body examinations and medical checkups. Comprehensive health assessments start by thoroughly examining medical records and history for any medical issues, such as chronic cases of the heebie-jeebies, before moving on to physical exams. These exams focus on fulfilling the requirements for occupational, sports, camp, and school physicals.
Dr. Garland Porterfield’s mission is to bring to life his clients’ envisioned image of themselves. He mostly does this through plastic surgery, in which he is board-certified and well versed in body, breast, and facial procedures. He also treats clients with non-surgical needs. His skin-rejuvenation services range from microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser-hair removal, to dermal fillers, such as Botox, that soften the appearance of facial wrinkles.
