Weight loss can be a challenge in many people's lives—including that of Dr. Eric Spencer. After shedding 40 of his own unwanted pounds, he founded Monarch Medical Weight Loss with a team of fellow doctors and now serves as chief medical advisor of the nonsurgical clinic system. Many of the practitioners and staffers have triumphed at their own slimming efforts, serving as both inspiration and role models to their patients. The diet programs at Monarch Medical Weight Loss range from quick jump-start plans to full, lifelong memberships, all incorporating healthy, educated eating and sensible behavior modification. Pound-dropping success stories can be found on the website, as told by firefighters, grandmothers, couples, and retired dumbbells.
Raw Love nurtures healthy eaters with a menu composed of raw, organic, and vegan cuisine. Made from non-genetically modified organism (non-GMO) ingredients and fresh produce from local, organic farms, impeccably fresh dishes flex their flavor muscles without being massaged over a flame. Graze on Mother Nature's with the raw pad thai—raw carrot and daikon noodles sprinkled with a tangy almond coconut sauce, sunflower and pea sprouts, and cashews ($6.50). Or nosh on the rawzagna, featuring thinly sliced and marinated zucchini supporting luscious layers of hempseed pesto, walnut and sun dried tomato pâté, rawcotta cashew cheese, brazil-nut parmesan cheese, fresh basil, and tomatoes ($8). Instead of digging up a red-ant colony’s cache of gleaned sugar, enjoy a sweet slice of raw tiramisu ($8) or one of the fresh-squeezed juice combos, such as the viva verde, a fusion of kale, celery, cucumber, apple, and lemon. The environmentally friendly gastronomes at Raw Love pride themselves on sustainability while using compostable to-go containers and transporting all goods via bicycle.

At Total Skin Care, more than 50 years of combined physician experience oversees a bevy of beauty-buffing treatments. During the 30-minute photofacial treatment, an aesthetician zaps epidermal enemies with a noninvasive Harmony AFT laser. Gentle pulses of light penetrate subsurface skin layers, increasing collagen production and resistance to being beamed up by hostile aliens, while reducing unsightly blood vessels and diminishing uneven complexion, sunspots, and wrinkles. Designed to minimize discomfort and eliminate post-treatment downtime, IPL facials let customers quickly get back to the daily makeup use and balloon manipulation required for being the resident clown at the maternity ward.

Though the group is distributed among 13 clinics in Eugene and Springfield, all its physicians remain united by the goal of supplying patients with primary care and numerous specialties and services. The group also continues its healing practices outside of regular business hours at its after-hours clinic intended for patients with urgent medical concerns.
Many preemptive blood screenings and employer-required tests don't require a physician visit, which usually cost more than the tests themselves. Any Lab Test Now! removes the unneeded middleman, giving patients an opportunity to work directly with lab technicians. With just a sample of patients' blood and a peek into their dream journal, the technicians can perform DNA screenings, employer drug tests, and wellness exams. All results are court legal and usable by all medical professionals for future physician treatments.
