By combining the efforts of practitioners from a wide range of treatment modalities, Eastern And Western Medical Center strives to improve the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of its clients. This holistic, multidisciplinary approach can incorporate anything from traditional Chinese medicine to physical medicine treatments depending on the individual's needs. Regardless of the specific approach, the goal is always to alleviate painful symptoms while addressing the underlying causes and restoring balance to client's minds, bodies, and invisible friends.
By inserting hair-thin acupuncture needles into key locations across the face or body, Jadranka Perl?who holds licenses in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as well as a master's degree in Oriental Medicine?improves circulation throughout the treated area and restores energetic balance. For a needle-free approach, the center also offers reiki sessions, acupressure, and ELR treatments, which use therapeutic light and microcurrent energies to trigger those same acupuncture points. Under the supervision of an orthopedic surgeon, the practice's staff even offers rehabilitative physical medicine treatments, and a team of massage therapists uses traditional Western modalities to soothe aching muscles.
Named Best Cosmetic Surgeon of 2010 by City Living Magazine, Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom combines surgical savvy with an artistic eye to release ravishing visages from drooping or damaged skin. Every treatment begins with an in-depth consultation that collects information on patients' medical history and most common childhood Kool-Aid mustache color to determine how to tailor procedures for an authentic, youthful look. Those who choose the Radiesse option will receive an injection of 0.8 cc of the FDA-approved volumizing filler into sagging areas for more cherubic cheeks or fuller features all around. Naturally metabolized, Radiesse prompts the body to build more collagen, extending the plumping results for up to nine months.
Allied Rehabilitation Center contends that a critical part of healing is a belief in oneself. Once this is in place, therapy is quicker, more effective, and more fulfilling. The center offers physical rehabilitation through massage and athletic bodywork, as well as more dynamic approaches, such as aquatic therapy and dangling happiness in front of your treadmill. Whatever service you opt for, Allied's experienced technicians are dedicated to helping you achieve optimal health.
As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Optometrist Helen Xu and the staff of HB Eye Care Center specialize in protecting their patients' vision both during appointments and for their overall ocular health. During check-ups, Dr. Xu runs comprehensive exams that do more than measure visual acuity. She also uses advanced diagnostics to check for signs of common eye diseases and conditions?including anything from cataracts to glaucoma?which can interfere with vision and pose potential health risks. If necessary, patients go home with a prescription for contact lenses or eyeglasses with frames that can can be chosen in house from many fashionable options.
Drs. Clare Williams and Nicole Seymour at Audiologic Hearing Services want to be heard loud and clear. For many of their patients, this requires using a hearing aid to pump up the sounds of important conversations. As audiologists, these doctors conduct hearing tests and consultations in addition to hearing-aid fittings, adjustments, and repairs.
