Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.
Dr. Mikhail Burakovskiy's expertise in podiatry has earned him not one, not two, but three certifications from the American Board of Multiple Specialties—in primary care, in podiatric surgery, and in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds and diabetic footwear. It is this expertise⎯along with his skills with laser systems, injections, and surgical tools to alleviate foot problems such as bunions, ankle pain, and toenail fungus⎯that has helped him become the footcare specialist of fellow doctors.
Dr. Burakovskiy has also been featured on King 5 News as a podiatrist who doesn't chide women for wearing high heels, instead offering foot-pillow injections that create extra padding in the ball of the foot to reduce pain more efficiently than wrapping feet in bubble wrap. He is joined by Dr. Jacqueline Buckley, a Seattle native who has trained in foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine, and wound care. She attended Clark Atlanta University and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and has researched cadaveric achilles tendon transplantation, tendon repair, and amnion.
Dr. Trinh T. Nguyen, O.D. believes that sight is a right; it's what first drew her to humanitarian work. During trips both locally and internationally, she’s worked to restore and protect the vision of those who might otherwise be at risk. She brings the same commitment to ocular health to her practice, where she treats every patient with custom fittings and thorough examinations. After Nguyen susses out new prescriptions, patients can peruse the office's array of frames. Stylish street-wear frames from brands such as Ray-Ban, Burberry, Polo, and Cole Haan encircle high-quality lens material in polycarb, transition, and progressive forms, and custom sunglasses and sports eyewear protect vision during outdoor activities such as scaling a mountain or challenging a campfire to a staring contest. Thanks to Colonial Optical's onsite lab, technicians can modify glasses to patients' exact needs and specifications or repair damaged pieces quickly and effectively.

After resting in her comfy dental chair, she'll gaze deep into your maw for signs of trouble, take pictures of your teeth for the office's yearbook, and address any concerns, pains, or existential ennui before degunking your charming chompers. In one quick, gentle procedure, your mouth bones will sport a tidy, healthy, and commanding glow, potent enough to scare the worms from rotten apples or power a space shuttle solely with smiles.

Vincent, award-winning Lawrence draws on years of schooling and residencies when practicing podiatry at Washington Foot & Ankle Sports Medicine. With the help of their qualified staffers, Drs.

They also specialize in diagnoses and treatments of a number of foot and ankle ailments ranging from Achilles tendons to hammertoes.
