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.
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Edward S. Lee and his highly trained team of body buffers combine recent technological advances and a strong medical background to beautify bodies and revise visages. During the Zerona treatment series, five low-level lasers melt fat, jettisoning plump cells so that they can be safely eliminated by the lymphatic system. The 40-minute procedure is repeated about every other day for two weeks for maximum effectiveness and is designed to remove 2–6 inches from the treated area. The procedure requires no surgery or injections, has minimal down time, and—unlike the vice grip of a new father-in-law's suggestively sinister handshake—is virtually pain free. The Zerona treatment is ideal for the waist, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, or anywhere else with localized pockets of fat that have remained resistant to diet, exercise, and threats to take away their car privileges. Zerona is only available at the Englewood Cliffs location.
Esthetix Dental Spa's roster of experienced dentists and staff keeps teeth smiling brightly and munching soundly with preventative and cosmetic services. During the 60- to 90-minute treatment, a friendly dental assistant ushers patients from the lobby to a treatment room for a pair of digital x-rays. The bitewing x-rays snap a portrait of how upper and lower teeth align, and the periapical shots reveal the entire tooth from crown to root tip, as well as any potential problems or gremlins that linger below the gum line in the jaw's jazzy speakeasy. With the digital images projected onto a computer screen, dentists can better illuminate results and counsel patients on overall oral health. During the full prophylaxis cleaning, plaque and tartar evacuate their illegal residence on enameled estates, fleeing as dental hygienists scale teeth surfaces by hand or electronically with breathy 4 a.m. phone calls. A final buff leaves choppers feeling smooth and clean, as if a convoy of mini zambonis detoured over mouths.

Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.
