With a newly minted medical degree and ability to pronounce caduceus, a young Dr. Michael W. Gray charged headlong onto the osteopathic scene. After a stint as the chief resident at Midwestern University's Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center and a fellowship at Northwestern University, the already accomplished plastic surgeon packed up his snake and staff and headed for the Pleasant Peninsula. Today, when he's not discussing advancements in plastic surgery on ABC and NBC local news, he brings his years of experience to The Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa where he and his staff perform a full line of surgical and nonsurgical medical procedures.
At Skin Deep Spa, Gray practices a less-aggressive approach to cosmetic procedures with noninvasive treatments in a space designed to put clients at ease. Zerona cold-laser systems and the pulsed energy of Venus Freeze gently smooth away cellulite, for example. The in-house Beauti Bar area, manned by licensed aestheticians, sells Skin Deep beauty products designed by Dr. Gray himself to augment the cosmetic treatments. The zen-garden-inspired décor infuses the spa with earth-toned tiles, leafy green plants, the sound of rippling water flowing over stones in fountains, and ornate wooden chests filled with meditating yogi masters.
Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Steven Zeldes has been diagnosing and correcting wayward eyesight at his eponymous clinic since 2003, aided by his team of opticians and laser eye-surgery technicians. With a steady hand and sneeze-suppressing abilities, Dr. Zeldes employs his surgical expertise to excise cloudy cataracts or reshape corneas with LASIK treatments. His prescriptions can be used to fill frames from his online shop with single-vision or progressive lenses that resist glare and scratches with protective coatings.
At the Center For Medical Weight Loss, physician Gina Randhawa uses a program rooted in scientific principles to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Randhawa employs tools such as body-composition analysis to customize each treatment plan, enhancing the effects of a low-calorie diet with appetite suppressants and injections designed to boost energy and metabolism. Her medical expertise also allows her to identify barriers to weight-loss success, from medications taken for separate health conditions to walls built around gyms.
With an office located in the Providence Medical Center, Family Footcare, PC is a full-service podiatry clinic that specializes in correcting forlorn feet and incorrigible arches. Board-certified foot and ankle surgeons Dr. Milton J. Stern and Dr. Randy K. Kaplan heal painful paws through their custom orthotics. Your treatment includes a comprehensive biomechanical examination before being fitted in plaster molds of the feet, that, unlike plaster face molds, can't be used by impersonators trying to steal your birthday hugs. The orthotics can help to control arch, heel, bunion, and forefoot pain, as well as diminish the wayward foot's negative contributions to the ankle, leg, knee, and wheelbarrow hands. If needed, one follow-up visit for an adjustment is included.
The Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit hosts dozens of events throughout the year open to the entire community, celebrating everything from literature to zombies. During the spring, for instance, the center's staff organizes an annual music festival and Jewish film festival. Come fall, the organizers make cozying up by a fire all the more enticing with a reading list from their book fair, or they encourage people to gett a lungful of crisp, fresh air while outracing spooky zombies. The center isn't entirely dedicated to special events, of course; it also hosts year-round child-development programs, fitness classes for adults, and gatherings geared toward senior citizens.
