Thomas A Law, MD, has made a name for himself with his steady, precise hands. The honorably discharged major in the US Army Medical Corps and former piano player entered the Army Reserve in 1980 and later went on to become a flight surgeon and an emergency-room physician with the Army. He even earned the expert-marksman award at the pistol range on his first attempt. Now, Dr. Law uses his nimble fingers to transplant hair.
He has developed an international reputation for his meticulous and creative approach to hair transplantation. Using either one of two methods depending on the client's needs. Dr. Law can harvest individual follicles with the follicular-unit-extraction technique or surgically remove and divide thin strips of hair with the follicular-unit-transplantation process. Both methods take advantage of a horseshoe-shaped donor area at the back of the head where an abundance of "lifelong" hair follicles are typically found. Much like a BFF necklace from his best friend, these follicles are always there on virtually every man.
The health experts at Five Star Wellness aim to bring the mind, body, and spirit back into balance through a variety of holistic-minded treatments ranging from organic facials to ear candling. Colon hydrotherapy is an office specialty, and all therapists hold certification through the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-Act). Utilizing FDA-approved equipment, the process sends filtered, temperature-controlled water through the large intestine, where it breaks down and flushes away any accumulation of waste or swallowed pride to improve immune- and digestive-system function. An alternate method of detoxification, ionic detox footbaths use positively charged ions to draw negatively charged toxins out through the feet, helping clear the system of heavy metals, cellular debris, and other substances often blamed for throwing the body out of balance.

According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
Doctors Sal Guadino, DPM and Sid Sharma, DPM do more than the average foot doctors. Most days, they?re assisting clients at A Beautiful Foot. Other days, they take on a range of cases, serving as surgeons for the New York State trooper police. In both roles, the doctors treat a number of conditions that range from minor annoyances to major inconveniences. As they work, the doctors use high-end equipment including a diagnostic ultrasound that reveals the status of bones, pain points, screws, and lost coins via XI-scan imaging.
People can't usually have their teeth and feet cared for in the same place, but husband-and-wife doctors Corinne Kauderer and Allan Goldfarb aim to change that with Dyker Heights Advanced Foot & Dental Wellness Center. As a board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Kauderer blasts fungus from nails with a cold laser, heals diabetic foot ulcers, and eases pain from muscles and bones with electronic-pulse therapy. She also draws on skills as a nutrition and weight-loss counselor to help clients toward better health. Seasoned dentist Dr. Goldfarb, meanwhile, straightens and polishes teeth with cosmetic treatments ranging from bridges and implants to bleaching and Zoom whitening.
A positive environment may augment positive results, which is why the therapists of St. Hermina Physical Therapy are so encouraging and friendly in massage and physical therapy sessions. Before treatments are performed, staff makes a thorough evaluation to determine which treatments are a priority for each patient. This information then becomes the basis of the client's customized treatment plan, which can include physical therapy services to reverse sport injuries and limber up shoulders that have been encased in a block of ice for decades.
