Ophthalmologist Dr. Alexander Hatsis has performed tens of thousands of refractive surgical procedures since 1985, and uses his experience to train other surgeons at several area universities. At Hatsis Laser Vision—providing services on Long Island since 1995—Dr. Hatsis performs LASIK and PRK eye surgeries with the aid of Custom Vue procedures and WaveScan-based digital technology, which helps pinpoint individual imperfections that older methods could not detect. When correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, he relies on ultrathin IntraLase and excimer lasers to etch prescriptions into the cornea so that incoming light will focus on the retina. He also stores all patient records electronically so that computers can analyze data, helping to ensure safety.
Dr. Gary B Feldman corrects an array of podiatry ailments with everything from custom orthotics and shoe inserts to hypnosis for pain management. He obliterates foot fungus with the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser system and eradicates painful and bothersome bunions, hammertoes, corns, and calluses. Although he has two offices—one in Flushing and another in Valley Stream—the doctor also makes house calls for particularly serious problems, such as that time you got your foot stuck in the cookie jar.

Dr. Kanumilli is a board-certified family doctor, but her certification in medical acupuncture and knowledge of aesthetic services allows her to sprinkle her practice with unique specialties. In addition to general internal medicine, she guides patients through weight-loss programs and prescribes medicine to ease narcotics withdrawal.

At offices in Great Neck and Floral Park, Dr. Lauren Schwartz leads a podiatric team that’s been keeping feet and ankles healthy for about 20 years.The office addresses general podiatry care for bunions, fractures, heel pain, neuromas, orthotics and diabetic foot care; patients can also opt for a bit of pampering: specially designed sterile pedicures keep toes relaxed and looking their best, and sterile manicures do the same for fingers. The foot facial gets skin ready for open-toed shoes and glass slippers.
