Inside any of Hairdoctors Specialty Salons' five full-service locations, skilled aestheticians treat hair and nails with a range of pharmaceutical and natural services. They trim and style hair, perform keratin treatments, and color strands using crayons or ammonia-free dyes and cellophanes. The staff’s work extends beyond hair services via manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians also add to clients' existing hair with extensions—strands made from Remy or virgin Indian human hair and attached to scalps via weaving, taping, fusion, or gluing. Hairdoctors Specialty Salons also posts informative hair-extension FAQs on its website.
When other shops clamor all over themselves to stuff their service menus full of fads, Unike Nice Nails pours all of its energy one specialty. Focused nail techs pamper patrons with services such as gel and shellac mani-pedis that keep their shine for weeks, or simple but elegant french tips, ideal for tastefully scooping up caviar at dinner parties. They ready nails during power-lunch breaks with a quick trim or repair, or indulge finger- and toe-tips in decadent spa manicures and pedicures.
At Miami Nail Club & Spa, patrons are invited to outfit their talons with a diverse array of gel colors and acrylic nails. Nail art, whimsical designs, and tiny likenesses of Grover Cleveland also add flair to nails, turning manicures and pedicures into creative personal expressions. A technician can quickly pamper digits with a mini manicure, or she can boost overall beauty and relaxation with a spa package that includes a mani-pedi, a restorative facial, and a reflexology treatment.

As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn’t come easily. That’s why all of her spa’s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog’s favorite chair.
On August 21, 2010, the offices of EliteHealth.MD LLC got a disturbing call. One of their patients had fractured a vertebra during a dive into too-shallow water and was now paralyzed below the chest. Things were further complicated by her location, as a visit to her family in the Bahamas had put her more than 300 miles from Florida. But that didn't stop Dr. Steven Schnur and his team from immediately springing into action to help her. An air ambulance lifted her to Ryder Trauma Center in Florida, where the chairman of the University of Miami's neurological-surgery department led a medical team to repair the break in her spine.
This quick, effective response demonstrates the scope and resources of EliteHealth, an international network of physicians coordinated by Drs. Schnur and Perry Krichmar. Though EliteHealth's team ably handles emergency situations like this one, its focus lies in preventive medicine. Three levels of membership grant patients access to a suite of medical services, screenings, and diagnostics scheduled throughout the year. These range from heart scans to Elite|Fit Forever, a gene-decoding and metabolic-testing program that develops nutrition and exercise recommendations based on each patient's genetics. Members also qualify for the EliteHealth Annual Wellness Exam, which monitors patients for early indicators of common degenerative diseases such as cancer.
To further facilitate this approach to ongoing integrative care, EliteHealth operates locations within the United States and beyond. The myEliteHealth online portal helps patients keep in touch with their physicians without forcing them to shout into a really long stethoscope.
