Though his practice is outfitted with advanced technological tools, Dr. Albano works hard to instill the old-fashioned level of dedication and personal care that characterized doctors of yesteryear. While he was earning his chiropractic degree and starting his practice, Dr. Albano was also defending his title as a powerlifting world champion. "The strongest chiropractor in the United States" brings his personal in-depth understanding of anatomy to his office. His history as a professional strength athlete helps Dr. Albano maximize clients' athletic performance and lift stray anvils off patients' tired shoulders.

What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
Dual board-certified Dr. Victor Mendoza combines traditional weight-management supplements with new-age laser treatments to help clients not only shed fat, but also remedy internal ailments such as fatigue or insomnia. The staff tailors each treatment program with preliminary tests that detect the hormone and toxin levels in each patient’s body, which helps determine whether their issues come from environmental forces or simply eating too many pennies. To treat the moodiness, memory loss, and weight gain that comes with age, the spa administers health-bolstering doses of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to heal bodies from the inside out. Dr. Mendoza boosts his regimens’ effects with Zerona body-contouring treatments, which use an FDA-cleared laser system to help noninvasively remove fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Lifestyle makeovers go even further with Fountain of Youth Medical Spa’s other services, such as laser hair removal, chemical peels, and beauty injections.
Under the watchful eye of board-certified Doctor of Internal Medicine Greg Flippo, Prescription 2 Fitness’s personal trainers and medical aestheticians improve appearances with cosmetic procedures and weight-loss programs.

Dynamic personal-training sessions and nutrition counseling fill noggins with healthy meal ideas and debunk the myth that steaks are vegetables. Clients can feast upon prepared meal plans brimming with local ingredients, which can be tweaked to feed all manner of nutrimental needs, from bulking up bodybuilders to streamlining silhouettes with the help of HCG.
