The scalpel doesn't fall far from the tree in the Korngold family. Dr. Louis Korngold, director of Plastic Surgery Associates of New City, was joined in his practice by his son, Dr. Jay M. Korngold, in 2001. The father-son team lifts, tucks, and reconstructs problematic areas of the anatomy in their fully accredited, onsite operating room, and smoothes out wrinkles with nonsurgical injectables in the comfort of their office.

The registered nurses and board-certified doctors that comprise the staff at The Rockland Vein Center put their impressive educational and professional backgrounds to work in treating a variety of skin issues. One of the center's main focuses is in minimizing the appearance of varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy and Venefit procedures. But these clinical aesthetic specialists also tackle wrinkles and fine lines with facial injectables. Whichever treatment clients opt for, the team keeps the setting relaxing with the help of warm blankets, ambient music, and consultations that go over all the treatment and high-five options.
Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic and her husband, Dr. John Dziedzic, both studied at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Ingeborg received her medical degree from the school, and John completed his fellowship in neuropathology there after receiving his PhD in biochemistry at Fordham University. Both continue to practice the specialties that launched their medical careers—ophthalmology and anesthesiology respectively—though they've expanded their practice to encompass new territories of treatment and more wall space for framed diplomas.
Patients seek out the knowledgeable couple for everything from laser vision correction to cosmetic procedures such as Botox or Radiesse, and spa services such as microdermabrasion. The Dziedzics also stock a wide variety of natural supplements to holistically improve health, and guide patients through weight-loss programs supplemented by HCG, and can test for specific food allergies with ALCAT blood testing to pinpoint causes of fatigue, skin reactions, or milk-related night terrors.
Surgeons need not apply at Bardonia Physical Therapy. That's because their physicians and physical therapists strive to heal musculoskeletal injuries without putting clients under the knife. The team has spent the past 20 years both aiding recoveries and preventing recurring injuries. They soothe conditions that assail an anatomy chart’s worth of body parts, from necks to lower backs and joints. When they aren't treating athletes and dancers, they address women's wellness issues and perform ergonomic assessments that encourage businesses not to make their employees sit in driftwood chairs.
Dr. Lance A. Johnson and his staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists combine their noninvasive skill sets to administer holistic healing without the need for drugs or surgery. He envisions the entire person being well, not just having healthy lungs or healthy knees or healthy banana-peel sensors. This approach, in Dr. Johnson's view, dodges the problem of merely making patients' symptoms go away instead of getting to the root of those symptoms' cause. His staff devotes themselves to getting to this root and, once there, correcting it with such tried and true chiropractic techniques as adjustments, massages, or physical therapy.
