Dr. Mikhail Burakovskiy's expertise in podiatry has earned him not one, not two, but three certifications from the American Board of Multiple Specialties—in primary care, in podiatric surgery, and in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds and diabetic footwear. It is this expertise⎯along with his skills with laser systems, injections, and surgical tools to alleviate foot problems such as bunions, ankle pain, and toenail fungus⎯that has helped him become the footcare specialist of fellow doctors.
Dr. Burakovskiy has also been featured on King 5 News as a podiatrist who doesn't chide women for wearing high heels, instead offering foot-pillow injections that create extra padding in the ball of the foot to reduce pain more efficiently than wrapping feet in bubble wrap. He is joined by Dr. Jacqueline Buckley, a Seattle native who has trained in foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine, and wound care. She attended Clark Atlanta University and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and has researched cadaveric achilles tendon transplantation, tendon repair, and amnion.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Leny Eidsmore of Highlands Naturopathic Physician often fuses botanical remedies and Chinese medicine to help bring bodies into balance, but she doesn't ignore the role of technology in healing. When Dr. Eidsmore meets clients for free consultations, she takes a holistic approach to determining treatment goals by asking about health history and current medications. From there, she may prescribe custom nutritional plans or begin aesthetic treatments, such as reducing cellulite with detoxification and radio-frequency therapy or minimizing rosacea and acne with IPL treatments.

Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
At Vanishing Veins Northwest, board-certified radiologists and nurse practitioners act as reverse artists, erasing the unsightly scribbles of spider and varicose veins. They typically administer noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments such as EVLT—Endovenous Laser Therapy—which closes varicose veins by applying laser energy to the affected tissues. Alternatively, sclerotherapy sessions address spider veins with an injected solution that causes the vessel walls to swell up, blocking blood flow and leading to the vein’s collapse and disappearance without it first spelling out "Nooooo!" Both procedures entail short recovery periods and include detailed medical evaluations. After their treatments, patients can benefit from reduced leg discomfort and the boost in confidence that comes with clearer skin.
At Any Lab Test Now, HIPAA-compliant technicians help clients take control of personal health by readily performing standard laboratory procedures such as food-allergy tests, STD tests, DNA tests, and basic checkups. Since 1992, the advanced health-care facility has made medical laboratory testing available to the general public, and it welcomes clients without appointments, health insurance, or experience in riding a giant centrifuge at a state fair. In addition to individual health tests, the staff offers employment solutions and screenings to ensure safe and drug-free workplaces. All tests at Any Lab Test Now are performed confidentially.
