Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.
Dr. Jeffrey P. Pardee understands firsthand the frustration of trying to lose weight. He struggled with obesity as a child, and watched his weight rise following a heart procedure later in life. His personal battles make him more sensitive to his clients’ predicaments, which he approaches on a case-by-case basis. His custom-tailored plans eschew short-term diets in favor of all-encompassing lifestyle changes that not only slim down waistlines, but overhaul the unhealthy habits that lead to weight gain. He helps his clients reach their goals through comprehensive, custom systems that marry dietary changes with medication, including appetite suppressants to ease the slenderizing process. Dr. Pardee ramps up results through exercise and nutrition counseling to help clients make smart everyday choices and ensure that their hard work isn't undone by exposure to foie gras pop tarts.

The licensed massage therapists at Family Therapeutic Massage take a clinical, rather than a pure-relaxation, approach to bodywork—they want to heal their clients. Treatments such as sports, medical, and deep-tissue massage target localized pain caused by sports injuries, repetitive movements, or over-literal interpretations of the term couch surfing. The staff also detoxifies bodies with such novel treatments as ear candling, sinus treatments, and lymphatic drainage.
The certified, fellowship-trained physicians at Vanishing Veins of Oklahoma meticulously diminish the appearance of unsightly varicose and spider veins using the latest imaging technology. During the cosmetic sclerotherapy treatment, the skin-smoothing experts inject a sclerosing agent into the interior lining of the target veins, spurring an irritation that enables the veins to heal shut, like pouring honey down the laundry chute. The procedure entails negligible discomfort—similar to an ant bite or an ant wedgie—and yields little to no scarring. Results may appear quickly or over the course of several weeks, though additional treatments may be needed to achieve optimal aesthetic results.
Michael Steelman, MD, and his staff of certified weight-loss gurus shepherd clients toward healthier lifestyles and slimmer edifices with medical counseling and individualized fat-slaying regimens. During the first of two 45- to 60-minute visits, clients undergo a thorough compilation of examinations, including such greatest hits as blood tests and body-composition analyses to garner an understanding of their body's overall health, muscle-to-fat ratio, and preferred 401(k) investment strategy. Then, after a stint of more physical once-overs on the second visit, a seasoned staffer reviews all test results and develops a safe and effective weight-loss strategy that fits your metabolic needs as snugly as an arthropod in a rug. Clients leave armed with medically sound knowledge and an initial plan to restore their soul sack to healthy poundage without relying on gimmicky methodology, such as quantum leaping into the past or practicing reverse fat-cell psychology.
