At Triangle Vein Clinic, fellowship trained vascular surgeon Dr. Victor A. Medina merges technology with beauty. He saves on skin trauma by closing them with minimally invasive radiofrequency waves, offering improved cosmetic and therapeutic results and allowing patients to return to normal activity within 24 hours. Vein specialists treat spider veins with similar minimally invasive treatments, such as the VeinGogh treatment, which collapses vessel walls with hair-thin points of heat.

Seasoned team leaders individually train each of Lifestyle Maids’ professional tidier-uppers to dispatch household mess with maximum efficiency. Two-person teams customize each scrub session according to a customer-supplied list of preferences, which may include preferred cleaning products, target rooms, and warnings to avoid rabid roommates lurking beneath the dining-room table. Cleaning couples can scour kitchen countertops, bathroom fixtures, and floors with nontoxic and organic cleaning products, shining up surfaces till they gleam, or gussy up living-room or bedroom furniture with a thorough dusting. All Lifestyle Maids employees undergo a 20-year background check to ensure their trustworthiness and make sure they’re not a dust-bunny spy in disguise.
The staff at Creekside Women's Center—board-certified ob-gyn Henry N. Pleasant MD, Certified Nurse Midwife Wesley Tyler, and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Erin Wright—combine their medical expertise to provide women of all ages with comprehensive care. As each appointment begins, the boutique-style office welcomes clientele with its cozy foyer and cups of coffee and tea. Once inside private patient rooms, visitors slip into cotton gowns rather than ones made of paper or chain mail. Then the staff conducts health services such as annual checkups, primary care, family planning and menopausal treatments. Pleasant and his team also assist patients in achieving weight-loss goals through medically supervised programs and nutritional counseling.
