Dr. Mark Bickston and his small, close-knit team—which includes office manager Sherry and primary assistant Evenetta—have been working together for more than 20 years. The office is also a registered Venus Freeze provider: Dr. Bickston's wife, Susan, performs the anti-aging sessions in a private, spa-like treatment room.
