Doctors carefully listen to patients as they assess their beauty and weight-loss goals inside Monterey Bay Weight Loss and Medical, an office that originally went by the stage name MediZone. Initial weight-loss consultations allow the doctor and medical staff to offer each patient a custom action plan, which will include weekly one-on-one visits with vitamin B injections and a pocket-sized weight-loss coach for at-home inspiration. The friendly staff also doles out bio-identical hormone replacements as well as injections of Botox to help turn aging body clocks back a few years.
Dr. Rebecca Small helms Monterey Bay Laser Aesthetics, where she harnesses her degrees from Harvard Medical School and Cambridge University to personally consult with each client. After the consultation, a nurse will perform a Botox treatment or diminish crow's feet and acne scarring with laser skin resurfacing. She also employs medical skincare to greatly reduce the appearance of sun damage caused by harmful rays or hyperpigmentation due to giving pigment too much coffee.
Healthy teeth and gums are important for more than just your smile?they also impact your overall wellness.

Dr. Zeip and his team also update the appearance of teeth with the help of implants, crowns, and veneers.
With more than 25 years in the medical field, Dr. Pamela J. Stuart has focused her attention for the past 10 years on rejuvenating complexions with noninvasive treatments at Physician’s Skin Solutions. Dr. Stuart commences all services with a personalized consultation that helps create each patient’s skin profile, which helps identify sun damage, textural problems, and unnecessary fine lines—the kind that cannot tell your future. In addition, all nonsurgical procedures, including dermal fillers, laser hair removal, and radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments, are performed by the skilled doctor. And to further foster healthy glows, Dr. Stuart and her team are armed with advanced skincare products from brands including Obagi and SkinMedica.

"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments. They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.
Board-certified physician and surgeon Dr. Rani V. Ramachandran loves fashion. Even after she earned a medical degree from the University of Madras, nabbed a master's degree from Loma Linda University, and completed a residency at the University of California and a fellowship at Stanford University, she still loved fashion, which surprisingly is not a synonym for learning. So she combined two passions and opened Apsara Aesthetic Medicine, where she and her staff can help to beautify complexions during aesthetic services such as laser hair-removal treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions. Dr. Ramachandran also infuses her practice with positive energy, and her stylish flair accents the waiting room in the form of colorful paintings, decorative mirrors, and a clock with hands that sport exquisite diamond rings.
