The highly trained and experienced team at The Eye Care Institute cares for eyes with services ranging from routine family eye care to advanced LASIK surgical procedures. The clinical crew is comprised of six eye doctors, including three board-certified ophthalmologists who are all diplomates of the National Board of Medical Examiners and fellows of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. They specialize in laser vision correction for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, using the latest technological innovations to restore 20/20 sight and impart the ability to see through holiday wrapping paper.
Aside from caring for eyes, the medical staff members also help care for the community. They are the official eye doctors of the Louisville Bats baseball team, as well as supporters of the American Diabetes Association and several local charities.
Baxter Avenue’s certified massage duo Lambsey Reeves and Megan McNamara treat sore bodies and stressed auras with a quartet of muscle-melting massage techniques. Clients can warm-up with a hot towel as the tissue tenderizer unleashes a stress-abolishing treatment, alleviating bothered backs of irritations from chronic pain and hard-to-reach mosquito bites. Swedish massages soothe patients with graceful long and flowing strokes, and deep-tissue rubdowns showcase the therapist’s brute strength in the form of firm kneads and intense rolls. Expectant mothers can relieve anxiety with a pressure-alleviating prenatal session, and sore soul sacks can enlist the power of trigger-point therapy to unbundle corporeal knots and relive pockets of pain and tension lint.
When Dr. Bridget Young was 12, she filed papers and assisted chairside at her grandfather's dental practice. These memories stuck with her like a composite resin filling, and in 2001, she revived her grandfather's practice under the name Arts & Crafts Dental. Three years later, her husband, Dr. Allan Linehan, joined the practice.
Today, these two carry on the legacy that Dr. Young's grandfather started all the way back in 1964. The pair provides compassionate care that includes everything form general dentistry to cosmetic treatments. For dental emergencies, they’re often available for same-day visits, but they recommend that patients come in for a check-up every six months.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
