Although kids at his pediatrics practice affectionately call him "Dr. Spoon," adults at Emerge Esthetics & Weight Management know Bryan Weatherspoon, MD as the physician who can help them fit into skinny jeans or slim-cut gunnysacks. Dr. Weatherspoon sits down with patients to draw up individual plans for weight-loss success incorporating long-term lifestyle and nutritional changes, fat-burning injections, and professional-grade HCG. Dr. Weatherspoon also transforms bodies from the outside in by administering mesotherapy to slenderize areas of stubborn fat, and injecting dermal fillers to combat wrinkles.
Under the direction of Dr. Richard L. Brandon, the team of registered nurses and aestheticians at Bio-Life MD guide bodies toward beauty. Using up-to-date technology, the team thwarts the wrinkles, unwanted hair, and weight gain that invariably set in with advancing age. Lasers in treatment rooms concentrate pulses of light on unwanted hair or science-fair projects that seemed like they might be boring otherwise. Chatter drifts from consultations, during which the staff assesses the beauty goals of clients or runs through the benefits of HCG diets, which can propel weight loss by reducing appetites and flushing out excess fat.
Doctor of Chiropractic Levy Riley is a nurturer, both inside and outside the office. Between undergraduate school and chiropractic school, he took time off to care for his mother, who has since recovered from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When he returned to Life University College of Chiropractic, he mentored junior students and taught classes.
Today, Dr. Riley shares that caring nature with visitors to his clinic, helping them heal from car accidents, sports injuries, and everyday aches with drug-free chiropractic adjustments. No matter what the concern, Dr. Riley individually tailors treatments and emphasizes patient education, explaining to clients what he uncovers from exams and x-rays and what they can expect from appointments. In addition, he teaches patients at-home exercises so they can continue to strengthen their spines and finally stand taller than their paperboys.
Personal trainers, coaches, and fitness professionals helm the staff at Complete Nutrition, drawing from their in-depth wellness knowledge to fulfill the company's philosophy that health is based on four components—hydration, supplements, diet, and exercise. They heed those guidelines as they curate an immense roster of vitamins, herbs, and nutrition supplements, many of which are developed by health-care experts, nutritionists, and chemists exclusively for the store. Their sundry products are designed to help patrons lose weight, enhance their athletic ability, or bolster their overall health, and many target more specific goals, such as building enough muscle to defeat Popeye in an arm-wrestling match.
