In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Poppe, the wellness and beauty experts at Total Health Body Sculpting target areas of difficult-to-burn fat with technology that's been featured on Fox News and The Doctors.

Each treatment, which requires no downtime, also includes a radio-frequency session to tighten loose skin.
With experienced podiatric doctors at the helm, Foot and Ankle Specialists of Utah's purview covers a wide range of foot complaints. The physicians completed their residencies in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, laying a firm foundation beneath their independent areas of expertise and their giant-foot-shaped homes. Dr. Ryan Anderson uses his sports medicine and chronic foot-pain expertise to treat plantar fasciitis, sprains, and shin splints while Dr. Bryan Seagle specializes in the foot conditions that commonly arise in diabetic patients, treating foot ulcers and Charcot foot with custom-molded orthotics. Dr. Jason Campbell and Dr. Colby Frost, meanwhile, specialize in pediatric treatment.
Podiatrist and surgeon Dr. Jason Dickerson has been easing the ailments that hide inside Utah residents' socks for more than 10 years. At the Foot & Ankle Institute he treats everything from sprains and strains to gout, infections, and retractable toenails. Simple routine checkups make sure all is well in the lower appendages, and custom orthotics relieve pain and correct alignment issues.

Gary Rumel, physiologist and founder of Fitworks Corrective Therapy, believes that the key to good health isn't found only in traditional Western medicine but also in caring for the body and frame by correcting musculoskeletal imbalances. In 2000, Gary pioneered a method that works to do just that—he helps patients to identify, build, and stretch specific muscle groups through custom exercises and stretches, allowing their joints to align and their posture to improve. Employing this method, he's removed 47 people from surgery waiting lists for conditions such as scoliosis and lordosis and has developed The Decompression Band, which relieves the pain associated with bulging discs.
