The team of holistic healers at G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center manipulates the body’s healing energies from the inside out with combinations of acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs. Disharmonious meridians wreaking havoc in the form of chronic pain, digestive issues, or headaches come into alignment with acupuncture or Tuina massage. Chinese herbs combine the benefits of plant-based medications with the joy of swallowing pills to maintain the therapeutic momentum of acupuncture and Tuina massage.
Although they adhere to the same philosophy of holistic healing, each member of the team brings their own unique skill set and experiences to the practice. Two acupuncturists with backgrounds working in a 500-bed Chinese hospital join together with an acupuncturist who trained in physical therapy and one who trained in applied physics.
As a member of the Crown Council, Dr. Westover keeps his veteran staff on its toes with continued advanced training and arms it with the most starship-compatible teeth-cleaning technology available. During your exam ($66 value), Dr. Westover thoroughly inspects your mouth's pointy denizens while you lie back and daydream about what a phoenix tastes like. Next, a series of x-rays (depending on need, up to $115 value) scans your oral cavern's stalactites and stalagmites for undesirable enamel elements, such as the microscopic organized-crime syndicate known as The Cavity. Once they've successfully disengaged your mouth's various bear traps, Dr. Westover will move in to scrub and buff the pearliness back into your whites ($102 value)—sending your jerky-gnashers home with a clean bill of health. This deal also includes a fluoride treatment ($45 value).

Patients of Dr. Kenneth A. Janoff may recognize the vascular surgeon from his appearances on AM Northwest and KGW News, where he introduced viewers to the latest treatment options for varicose and spider veins. Off camera, he helms Bridgeport Vein Center alongside Dr. Patrick M. Lehti––an accomplished vascular surgeon with more than 25 years of experience––and a team that includes registered nurses specializing in sclerotherapy, dermal fillers, and laser rejuvenation. Together, the staff pools their collective expertise to restore smooth, youthful skin and treat venous diseases with the most up-to-date treatments. After an ultrasound exam that detects and analyzes problem veins, the team charts a treatment plan that could include ambulatory phlebectomy (surgical removal) or sclerotherapy––a method that targets veins with an injectable solution which causes them to break up, move out of the condo they share with healthy veins, and eventually become reabsorbed back into the body. As an alternative to surgery, the doctors may also turn to the state-of-the-art Venefit treatment, which collapses the blood tunnels by heating them from the inside out via a catheter and typically allows patients to return to normal activities within a day.
Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
