Dr. Ayman Z. Matta founded New York Eye Institute after completing a fellowship at the Bucci Cataract and Laser Vision Institute in Pennsylvania. Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, he not only specializes in refractive procedures, but also performs surgery to ease ailments such as cataracts, glaucoma, and tears made of grapefruit juice. His colleague Dr. Paul N. Guerriero focuses more on retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, while the optometrist on staff, Dr. Seung-Hee Choi, doles out glasses and contact prescriptions, plus pre- and post-op care.
Dr. Gregory R. Zaccone has seen?and treated?his share of injuries. He got his fair share of that practice as an intern athletic trainer for the New York Giants mini camp, and also worked as an athletic trainer for college basketball and lacrosse teams. But in 2004, the board-certified physical trainer gave up his spot on the sidelines to establish Spectrum Physical Therapy & Athletic Training, where he and his staff now help clients recover through
personalized therapy treatments.
Today athletes are just one kind of patients he treats. He also facilitates physical therapy sessions for people suffering from back pain, carpal tunnel, and arthritis.
What's more, Dr. Zaccone
devised the Zaccone Injury Prevention Program, a sport-specific treatment plan for athletes recovering from all manner of pain. The
sport-specific treatments help athletes return to top form, whether their goal is to sprint down the field during a game again or fold themselves into their gym bags after the final whistle.
And yet, you don't need to be hurt to get the doc's
help: Spectrum's medical fitness regimens also
pair clients with personal trainers who create fitness plans designed to improve endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility.

Dr. Elliot Sabbagh, DDS, wanted to be a dentist as soon as he graduated from high school, so he took the fastest route to get there: New York University’s accelerated dental program. He has put that extensive training to good use for the past 18 years at iSmile Dental Centers, a group practice he started and has expanded to include eight practices across New York City’s five boroughs. He and his fellow dentists provide a comprehensive slate of dental services—exams, crowns, fillings, digital x-rays, wisdom-tooth extraction, veneers, and power whitening—that cover patients’ preventive, surgical, and cosmetic needs.
