Backed by nearly three decades of practice in the local community, board-certified physician Michael Michell helms Somers Cosmetic & Laser Center's team of aestheticians and cosmetic specialists. Dr. Mitchell’s crew performs a comprehensive arsenal of medically inspired aesthetic services, including spider-vein treatments and laser hair removal. The doctor himself administers beauty injections such as Botox and Juvéderm and summons his extensive medical know-how to develop powerful facials that erase blemishes, flush dirt from pores, and wipe cheeks clean of Mom’s embarrassing lipstick marks.
Dr. Paul S. Taxin wasn't content with being your average dentist. After graduating dental school, completing a residency, opening his practice, and becoming a member of eight different organizations for dental professionals, he still wasn't done. He went on to become a fellow at LVI, an institute that teaches continuing-education classes, courses on the most advanced dental procedures, and that laughing gas is no laughing matter.
When Dr. Taxin isn't busy giving lectures, he's performing the full spectrum of dental services at his practice. Backed by a team of dental assistants and hygienists, Dr. Taxin tackles general dentistry, cosmetic procedures, laser dentistry, sleep apnea, TMJ therapy, and gum disease.
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.
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.
