Douglas J. Lavenburg, M.D. leads a team of optometrists that oversees the welfare of patients’ eyes and vision with up-to-date optometric techniques. But their services extend beyond eye exams, vision correction, and LASIK surgery. Microdermabrasions, pulsed-light hair removal, and Botox revamp complexions, and facials sprinkled with Obagi professional skin products, keep wrinkles at bay.
Led by experienced acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic Ronald Miller, Rehab and Wellness’s staff custom tailors treatments to guide patients toward good health.

Combining the skill of a medical center with the relaxation of a spa, First State Vein & Laser Medi Spa grants clients not only with radiant skin, but also with the luxury of being pampered. The center's suite of varicose and spider-vein therapies benefit from Dr. Nadiv Shapira's more than two decades of cardiac surgical experience and blood-flow expertise. The doctor has written articles in Living Well and Delaware Today that help explain the causes of varicose and spider veins, such as genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, and tiger Halloween costumes gone awry. The center also uses powerful technology to remove unwanted hair. Their LHE device—which stands for light, heat, and energy—uses state of the art technology to not only destroy the hair follicle and minimizes ingrown hairs, but may also improve the skin by boosting collagen production and diminishing the signs of sun spots, scars, and broken capillaries.
ESWT estimates that its technicians have helped relieve chronic pain in thousands of patients since 2000. They haul the extracorporeal shockwave-therapy system to doctors' offices up and down the East Coast, applying its cavitation technology for 18 minutes at a time. These treatments are designed to erase the discomfort associated with tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow, an ache that results from wearing a stone tennis bracelet. The machine stimulates the production of connective tissues while overloading the troublesome nerves that ferry pain signals to the brain. Originally designed to break up kidney stones, the ESWT tools can also help with spurs, or calcification deposits.
Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
