The philosophy of the Physician's Plan staff maintains that obesity, like diabetes, high blood pressure, or disco fever, is a disease rather than a failure of willpower. They take a multifaceted approach to weight loss, assigning each patient a personal counselor to provide support in the areas of behavior modification and nutrition. Custom plans might also incorporate tools such as lipotropic injections or medications. As a reward for their successes, patients can also schedule spa services including exfoliating HydraFacials, chemical peels, and massages, or ensure faces match their trim, youthful bodies with Juvéderm or Radiesse.
Window Genie’s scum-busters arrive to each job in a clearly marked chariot armed with the necessary equipment to tackle exterior household dust and decay. Pane pamperers kick off a window cleaning for homes up to two stories by scraping off tree sap, bird droppings, and other hard-to-clean debris with a specially designed blade that moonlights as a shiv stunt double in prison movies. Then, they’ll suds up sills to wipe away dust and accumulated grime, and they'll scrub soiled screens for an extra fee ($1 each). An exterior-only clean endows fixed-plate windows ($2.75 each), double-hung windows ($4.50 each), and triple-track storm windows ($12 each) with enough sparkle to make diamond-encrusted neighbors jealous. Or, homeowners can opt for an interior-exterior cleaning, and careful cleaners will shed shoes before entering abodes to avoid leaving footprints on carpet ($5–$18/window).
From the vibrant tubes and slides of the multilevel FunZone playground to the squeal-inducing Tubs-of-Fun and Red Baron Bi-planes, FunStation2000's rides and games engage youngsters of all ages. As the Himalaya Rollercoaster speeds around its track, the laser-tag arena accommodates bouts between phaser-wielding teams. In the indoor batting cages, balls hurtle toward future home-run hitters and team mascots who need to practice dodging the swings of angry players. FunStation2000 continues enticing guests with a massive arcade and snack station full of treats including cheese pizzas, spicy popcorn chicken, and corn dogs.
In addition to accommodating spontaneous days of revelry, the center's staff hosts private parties, complete with game tokens, playtime, and pizza and cake served in the animal-themed party room.
Both co-owners of HealthPoint RX help patients decide what to put in their bodies—family nurse practitioner Ginger Dailey by recommending medications and delivering injections of Botox and Juvéderm, and licensed dietician Annsley Ulrich by designing nutrition plans. Together, they run a facility where sclerotherapy vanquishes spider veins and appetite suppressants curb the urge to splice your genes with those of a cake. Perhaps most importantly, their monthly nutritional counseling outfits clients with personalized meal plans, a practice that helps them lose weight without endangering their health.
The vigilant valets of DADD provide riders with a safe, convenient way to get themselves and their cars home when under the influence of alcohol. Drivers arrive in pairs—one to transport the customer home in their own car, the other to transport the transporter—eliminating the need for taxis, limousine services, and hitchhiked piggyback rides. Advanced reservations are highly recommended, but members can call from their point of departure to arrange the pickup (allow at least half an hour for travel time) or arrange the ride days ahead of time.
