Board-certified in four different medical fields, including facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Goodnight can revivify clients from the inside out with services that range from hormone replacement therapies to surgical face-lifts. But the transformations don't end in the treatment room. As certified fitness trainers, the husband and wife team educates clients on how to increase their health through nutrition, exercise, and avoiding open manholes.
The proprietors of Gleason Wellness and Rehabilitation Center believe that however predisposed the body is toward wellness, it often becomes blocked by age, stress, and unavoidable external forces.
