Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Faiz Shareef believes good health requires a multidisciplinary approach that addresses physical and emotional needs. To create an environment that caters to all aspects of holistic well-being, he assembled staff members who specialize in everything from aesthetics and massage to fitness and weight loss. The technicians refine skin tone and texture with laser treatments, and the fitness instructors bolster confidence while leading core-toning and limb-lengthening yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Bodywork services, such as therapeutic massage and acupuncture, target the chronic aches and pains caused by daily stress or nightly caber-toss competitions, and the center’s weight-loss plans motivate patients to live healthier lifestyles.
At Lipo Laser, physician and surgeon Dr. Nicolas Sanez performs noninvasive, nonsurgical laser treatments as an alternative to liposuction. He employs the i-Lipo Ultra system, a low-level laser device that addresses specific areas of stubborn fat and cellulite. The system leaves skin feeling smooth thanks to a combination of infrared rays, vacuum massage, and voiceover narration by Al Green, and is often used to contour trouble spots that have not responded to other weight-loss methods.
Dr. Agrawal, Dr. Dymek, and Dr. Banker, the trio of vascular and interventional radiologists at Vein Experts, LLC, keep troublesome vessels in check with a menu of outpatient treatments. They tame mild cases of spider veins with medical-grade compression stockings, lasers, and sclerotherapy. More serious varicose veins that rise above the skin crumble like mined mountaintops after the VNUS Closure catheter blasts them with radio-frequency energy.
At Plastic Surgery Center, P.C., board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen E. Zucker renews skin with advanced techniques mastered over 26 years of personalized aesthetic care. A trio of microdermabrasion treatments efficiently scrubs dull cells and clarifies clogged pores with a shower of medical-grade crystals, revealing a fresh, radiant complexion and the location of the client's misplaced car keys.
With its talented quartet of physicians — Drs. Steve Gerber, Bruce Schwartz, Marcia Suvelza, and Eric Yoon — and advanced ocular services, Advanced Ophthalmology of Michiana provides comprehensive eye care for patients of all ages, from infants to adults. Keep eyes in proper fighting and reading form with a comprehensive eye exam, which runs sight orbs through a diagnostic obstacle course, giving them the chance to boast about their peripheral-vision records or champion discus throws. An eye expert will then determine the patient’s prescription using a multi-eyed phoropter and will use the discerning slit lamp to peer deep within the inner workings of the lens and cornea to look for potential problem areas or ocular-dwelling arachnids.
There's more than just strength-training and cardio equipment at Memorial Health and Lifestyle Center. The expansive facility also features a lap and therapy pool, basketball and racquetball courts, and locker rooms with whirlpools and dry saunas for washing and drying your sweaty workout clothes. Moreover, its services include childcare, massage therapy, personal training, and more than 80 weekly fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and Les Mills's aquatic-based Water in Motion classes.
The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.
