Wait times that average 10 minutes free up precious time for patients.
Voted No. 1 from 2209-2013 by the readers of the Akron Beacon Journal, Novus Clinic was born 20 years prior from board-certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer and optometrist Jerry Sude’s vision for a one-stop eye-care facility. To bring this idea to fruition, they first recruited a neuro-ophthalmologist and a second optometrist to their team and eventually constructed a 3,800-square-foot surgery center in 1998. The state-of-the-art center was built in response to the voices they heard asking for laser vision-correction procedures such as LASIK and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Beyer, also a certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, began performing face-lifts along with noninvasive skin treatments after he found himself fielding queries from more and more patients about dermal fillers, peels, and laser hair removal.
With the expanding list of offered services, the clinic shed its original title, System Optics, and was reknighted Novus Clinic in 2003. The word novus, which translates to “fresh and exciting” in Latin, more accurately encompasses the clinic’s multifaceted approach to ocular and anti-aging treatments. The doctors never forget the primordial soup from which they sprang, though, and still conduct eye exams and keep a venerable inventory of designer frames.
At Legacy Plastic Surgeons, Drs. James Lehman and M. Devi Prasad Tantri combine more than half a century of medical and cosmetic experience. With more than 70 published articles under his belt, Dr. James Lehman is well versed in all areas of cosmetic plastic surgery, specializing in breast reduction, breast implants, and abdominoplasty. His counterpart, Dr. M. Devi Prasad Tantri, boasts more than 25 years of medical experience, and demonstrates special proficiency in hand surgery, breast reduction, and the removal of cancers from the head and neck.
Together, the doctors lead a team of skilled clinicians—many of whom have served with the doctors for more than 10 years—who revamp and beautify faces with noninvasive techniques such as microdermabrasion, facial peels, and Botox injections. Before administering any procedures or treatments, doctors consult with patients to understand their subjects' expectations and tolerance for witty knock-knock jokes.
Hairline Clinic, in business for more than 45 years, treats molting manes with nonsurgical procedures designed to thwart and repair hair loss in men and women. The Laser Tech 9000 gently employs 51 diode lasers and 51 LED lights to fertilize cranial crops with therapeutic red light, designed to stimulate cell repair and hair growth without harming the skin and scalp. Attempt to immobilize retreating hairlines without hiring carbonite-equipped bounty hunters by opting for 15- to 30-minute sessions of low-level laser therapy once or twice a week. Although clients in the early stages of balding are the ideal candidates for laser therapy, people already losing their hair at the rate of an unwatered Dwight D. Eisenhower Chia Pet may also experience improved hair growth. Like bathing in a sea of smart phones, there are no known side effects.
One of the independent studios located within Private Spa, Lipo Laser of Ohio caters to its clients' needs with technologically advanced treatments designed to dramatically slim silhouettes. The LipoLaser system specializes in spot fat reduction, helping contour a number of body parts including love handles. These noninvasive procedures typically generate noticeable results after just one treatment with lasting results coming from multiple treatments.
With 40,000 LASIK procedures and 30,000 cataract surgeries under their belt, the team at Davis Eye Center has plenty of experience enhancing and protecting patients' vision. The center's board-certified ophthalmologists, Dr. Charles Davis and Dr. Allison Landes, serve as pioneers in the field, studying and implementing the latest techniques and technologies before other area practices. This forward-thinking approach surfaces most notably in the center's cutting-edge WaveLight and LenSx laser systems, which allow the doctors to perform corrective surgeries with greater speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
Davis Eye Center doesn't limit its services to surgical procedures though. The practice's team also includes opticians, registered nurses, technicians, and optometrists. With so much diverse talent available, the center is able to provide comprehensive care capable of addressing various vision concerns. Routine exams can determine prescriptions and scan for early signs of troublesome conditions, while personalized treatment regimens help manage the symptoms caused by everything from glaucoma to conjunctivitis. Davis Eye Center even stocks more than 2,000 frames by more than 50 brand-name designers, helping visitors boost their style and chances of being admitted to MIT with a new pair of glasses.
