The practitioners at Premier Age Management & Medical Weight Loss Center dedicate themselves to promoting slimmer frames and more youthful appearances by focusing on the medical, hormonal, and metabolic reasons behind weight gain and premature aging. They examine clients to assess individual hormonal signatures as well as deficiencies that might lead to unwanted physical consequences. Once they have determined underlying causes, they carefully tailor each patient's medical techniques and treatments, which may involve hormone-replacement therapies designed to increase energy and heighten metabolism. The office also offers a variety of skin-care services such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Latisse. Discreet office visits protect the privacy of clients, eliminating the need to show up wearing identity-protecting Batman costumes.
Like a basketball player after a game-winning shot, successful patients at RM Orthodontics & Family Dentistry get treated to congratulatory high-fives all around. But instead of sinking a difficult free throw, these patients have simply managed to keep appointments, brush regularly, and take care of their teeth. This celebratory atmosphere is what orthodontist Dr. Rachael Maidens and her staff encourage through regular contests for patients and jersey day for staff members.
Dr. Rachael Maidens adheres to the Six Elements orthodontic philosophy, which outlines optimal treatment goals and methods to create harmony in the mouth's appearance, function, health, and rhythm while chewing gum. In the modern office, a central skylight casts natural sunlight over patients gazing out the windows along the perimeter of the treatment room. Sage-green walls, stone embellishments, and dark hardwood floors give the office natural accents, and wireless Internet gives waiting parents or adult patients an opportunity to email or guess the passwords to their coworkers' email as they wait.
Supervised by Doctor of Chiropractic Josh B. Knotts, the staff at Align Health & Wellness is not content with merely treating pain. Dr. Knotts uses his chiropractic expertise to go deeper, analyzing the underlying causes before seriously addressing them. His approach is part of a dual-pronged strategy he shares with wellness director Jessie Barrera. Her community-outreach programs—to schoolchildren, businesspeople, and slouching willow trees—help ensure that the healthy habits fostered at Align transcend their office walls.
Their enthusiasm for holistic health is evident in the clinic, where pamphlets and brochures introduce clients to the healthy lifestyle practices that Dr. Knotts and Barrera advocate. The best part about her job, Barrera says, is seeing patients come in for a chiropractic exam and leave with more information about nutritional plans and healthy lifestyle choices. "Even if someone comes in just for a massage, they want to know" about how to improve their quality of life, she says.
Country-music greats Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney, Jo Dee Messina, Naomi Judd, and Julianne Hough share more in common than their musical abilities—they also boast clear vision courtesy of Dr. Ming Wang’s bladeless LASIK procedures. Nashville stars aside, Dr. Wang has corrected the vision of more than 55,000 patients with LASIK and laser cataract surgeries. This same path—with a rare combination of a PhD in laser physics and MD from Harvard and MIT—led him to perform the very first 3-D LASIK procedure, a highly precise treatment that's now a routine part of his ocular-enhancing repertoire, alongside implantable contact lenses, glaucoma treatment, and complete corneal transplants. All LASIK procedures at Wang Vision Institute are 100% bladeless.
Eve's: A New Beginning's approach to wellness concerns not only individual patients but whole families, from their oldest members to yet-to-be-born babies. As a certified nurse-midwife and a family nurse practitioner, the center's chief practitioner, Melan Smith-Francis, is well qualified to fulfill that goal. Aided by a team of nurse practitioners, Melan guides expectant mothers through prenatal care, manages low-risk pregnancies, and introduces newborns to their first beef wellington.
In addition to treating newborns and mothers, Melan treats men, women, and children by focusing on preventative care. She helps to fortify her patients against illness with annual checkups and bloodwork.
At 16, Dr. Douglas Sanford got his first taste of chiropractic medicine when a spinal fracture left him in severe pain that traditional care and physical therapy couldn’t quell. He turned to a chiropractor, and the relief he found there inspired him to pursue a career in the healing profession himself. Today, the doctor typically works to help those with auto injuries, headaches, chronic back pain, sports injuries, and work-related injuries. Of course, Dr. Sanford sees patients from a variety of backgrounds and extols the other health benefits of chiropractic work. One of his main treatment methods is the spinal adjustment, during which he wields pressure to realign vertebrae that might’ve fallen out of place during an overzealous shimmy.
