Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
Dr. Oliver Simmons performs surgical procedures and oversees med-spa therapies by drawing upon years of professional experience, including a fellowship in craniofacial and microvascular surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Simmons and his team use clinical-grade treatments to perform tummy tucks, Botox, and microdermabrasions, among many other procedures. The office is decorated with curlicue wall designs, bouquets laced with peacock feathers, and floral paintings that sprouted from frequently watered easels.
The skilled staff at Back to Essentials uses alternative therapies in a holistic and preventive approach to health. Services range from detoxification treatments such as colon hydrotherapy and ionic footbaths to pain-easing massages and chiropractic adjustments. In addition to quelling aches and ousting toxins, an infrared sauna can give skin a healthy glow, like that of a comet that’s just run a marathon. To help clients cultivate healthy lifestyles, Dr. Claire Wages teaches them about anatomy, physiology, and the dynamics of disease prevention.
The Hughes Center for Aesthetic Medicine provides skin-soothing services for its clients in a medically sound and supervised environment. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive facial treatment that gently polishes away the dead outer layers of the dermis to cleanse the skin as effectively as confessing to a bubblegum theft cleanses the conscience. During the treatment, the Hughes Center's skilled aestheticians, led by the Harvard-educated Dr. Susan Hughes, will use a microscopic sandstorm of diamond chips to reveal the healthy, vibrant skin underneath, removing telltale signs of aging, weather exposure, and pensive soul-searching. After a soothing hydration mask and green-tea eye treatment finish up the procedure, you'll skip out of the office sporting the first face-flushed results of the treatment (multiple treatments are recommended to achieve the maximum results). The Hughes Center provides clients with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, as well as top-of-the-line equipment and products.

Services range from digital x-rays to implant restoration, comprehensive exams, and custom whitening.
The licensed and insured massage therapists at My Magic Hands vanquish tension and soreness from bodies of virtually every age, from infants to seniors. Before kneading out localized knots with focal-point therapy or ranging over the entire back with long Swedish strokes, the staff listens carefully as clients describe their particular issues or how they fell asleep on a pineapple. Unlike many massage offices, My Magic Hands accommodates parties of six people or more for actual parties, be they bachelorette celebrations or birthday fetes, during which the staff massages each guest.
