Dr. David Rankin, the chief of plastic surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center, combines years of medical experience with finely honed aesthetic sensibilities. Deftly wielding the tools of his trade, from surgical procedures to noninvasive injections, he helps clients obtain the physical forms they desire. Dr. Rankin's compatriot, Dr. Jill Lezaic, offers up noninvasive laser treatments that resurface skin, remove tattoos, and make undesirably hairy areas as bald as the lies of people who say driver’s licenses are necessary. Aqua's opulent interior puts visitors at ease, with an elegant reception area that features shimmering purple lights on the front desk and miniature chandeliers, casting soft illumination and providing handholds for magically shrunken musketeers.
Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.

At Live Free Chiropractic, Drs. Alli Manis and Kevin Davine provide gentle, upper-cervical chiropractic care for the whole family. Since she was a child, Dr. Manis has had a strong desire to serve entire families as a healthcare provider. She sated this yearning by becoming one of the few chiropractors in Northern Palm Beach County certified to treat babies and children, having spent more than 200 hours in advanced training on pediatric spinal and neurological systems. Dr. Manis also cares for expectant mothers, is certified in the Webster technique, and is in the process of becoming a doula.
The compassionate doctor knows firsthand how effective the upper-cervical style of chiropractic can be—after one year of treatment herself, she was sleeping better, was free of the digestive issues she'd had since childhood, and had more pep in her step than a kangaroo wearing antigravity boots. Dr. Davine also gravitated toward upper-cervical care for its emphasis on neurology and the body's natural recuperative powers. He shares his extensive knowledge as a sought-after public speaker.
The duo's welcoming office features beds where patients can lie down and rest after an adjustment, allowing the spinal bones to stabilize.

The center's mission is to achieve the best results with a minimum of intervention. That's why, in addition to plastic surgery options for the face and body, the doctors offer a slew of non-invasive skincare treatments: chemical peels, Botox injections, and microdermabrasion treatments to name a few. The center relies heavily on innovative equipment, from a diamond abrasion machine for treating wrinkles to a laser system for removing brown spots and showing you which parts of a PowerPoint presentation to pay attention to.
Doctor of Chiropractic James McErlain helms Jupiter Healthcare, where he focuses on treating disk herniations, sciatica, sport injuries, and back and neck pain. The latter issues have a broad range of causes, which is why he uses various treatment methods, including hands-on chiropractic techniques and spinal-decompression sessions using the DRX 9000 machine. In addition to chiropractic care, Jupiter Healthcare offers physical therapy and several types of massages, including trigger-point therapy, which targets spots on the skeletal muscles made hyperirritable by a lack of coffee.
