The two board-certified dermatologists who anchor Uptown Dermatology & SkinSpa can claim some impressive credentials: Dr. Rehana Ahmed earned her MD from the University of Minnesota after completing her undergrad studies at Johns Hopkins University, and Dr. Jaime L.W. Davis is a graduate of Mayo Medical School. Now at Uptown, they lead a staff of clinically trained assistants in the ongoing struggle against blemishes. It's no surprise, then, that the center's services, like the complaint cards at a raw-meat restaurant, are frequently medical in nature. Biopsies of the skin, hair, or nails aid in diagnosing diseases, and photographic mole mapping monitors changes in the skin's topography. The center is also home to more cosmetic treatments, several of which employ lasers for one reason or another—resurfacing aging skin, removing hair, or eradicating vascular lesions.
Captained by licensed chiropractor Dr. Larry Estebo, Premier Health Chiropractic's team of spine adjusters has been scrutinizing and soothing pained backs since 1983. After discussing patient health issues and treatment options during a brief consultation, doctors perform a chiropractic examination, testing bodily flexibility, posture, and how quickly knees can answer riddles. If necessary, doctors x-ray patients to more closely inspect them for signs of spinal misalignment or degeneration. Following the initial 20- to 30-minute diagnosis, doctors magically transform their digits into masseuse fingers, digging and rubbing into the deepest, tensest contours of client spines during a 30-minute session that unburdens backs of persistent stress knots and lower-back tattoos.
