Drs. Igor Dukarevich and Claude Harb keep their patients' feet pain-free by providing everything from basic cosmetic care to corrective surgery when necessary. At Advanced Podiatry Clinics, the multilingual physicians oversee a staff of medical professionals armed with modern diagnostic and treatment technologies, including digital x-ray machines, ultrasound scanning systems, and a Cutera laser system, which can treat the underlying infections that cause toenail fungus. This combination of technology and professional experience allows the practice to address a wide array of common foot and ankle concerns, fixing everything from ingrown toenails and sprains to bunions and triple-knotted shoelaces.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Reflecting its multi-disciplinary approach, MIMIT—Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Treatments—employs a team of board certified practitioners from diverse medical backgrounds. Four fellowship-trained interventional radiologists and two general surgeons helm the staff, which also includes three certified physician's assistants. Together, they approach healing with a focus on function, as well as aesthetics, and aim to empower their clients through treatment education. The team specializes in needle-aided sclerotherapy, endo-venous laser treatments, and radio frequency ablation treatments for venous disease, as well as pain-reduction kyphoplasty treatments for spinal compression. They also rely on a blend of non-invasive and surgical techniques to treat issues ranging from peripheral arterial disease to breast cancer.
Advanced imaging and laser systems map out the mouth’s terrain, probing for potential damage to teeth during dental appointments at Universal Dental Clinics. The technology-driven clinics feature modern machinery such as HD televisions for entertainment and flat-screen monitors, which give patients up-close views of their teeth and allow them to watch the love triangle between two taste buds and a stick of gum. Sirona 3-D imaging with Cone Beam technology gives doctors a complete mouth scan in about 15 seconds, allowing them to quickly perform dental diagnostics, and CEREC technology offers fast, single-visit crown restorations.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
