You don't need an appointment to see a licensed physician, nurse, or x-ray technician at one of Doctors Express' New Jersey locations. You just have to show up. Beyond urgent visits, each clinic offers everything from routine vaccinations and physicals to more sophisticated care such as lab work and drug screenings. To help keep wait times reasonable, some of their clinics offer online check-ins rather than spending years trying to invent a machine that stops time.
Over the last 20 years, the medical experts at New Jersey Foot and Ankle Centers have seen 20,000 peoples' feet. Having worked with tens of thousands of patients, the staff has sharpened their expertise in all things related to feet, from plantar fasciitis and sprained ankles to ingrown toenails and bunions. One of their specialties is their use of lasers to help destroy unwanted fungus residing on nail beds. With fewer side effects than other treatments such as oral medication, topical creams, and magic potions, laser toenail-fungus treatments require zero downtime.
The team of friendly hair stylists at Danielle's Place knows a thing or two about giving. First and foremost, they give every ounce of effort as they impart hair with vivid highlights, modern style, and shine as noticeable as frost in the desert. When they renovated the salon interior, they gave their workspace an upscale and modern feel that matched the contemporary treatments on their service menu. Hardwood floors underline a décor with elegant rugs, gold light-radiating ceiling fans and sconces, and bright purple walls inside treatment rooms.
For Danielle's staff, the act of giving extends beyond the salon. They strive to give back to the community that supports their business by hosting various charitable events and fundraisers, including a haircut-a-thon for breast cancer.
Doctors Joseph and Deborah Lozito created The Institute for Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition in an effort to curtail the nation's growing obesity epidemic. The two pool their 45 years of combined medical experience with the expertise of CBS 2 News–featured nutritionist Jennifer Burns Katafigiotis to develop customized weight-loss programs. The institute's weight-loss plans include a combination of meticulous medical analysis, hours-long tickle-fights, and meal replacements. The meal replacements have been shown to help participants adjust to healthier portion sizes and shed pounds.
Imagine you're on the set of Good Morning America. You sit there, waiting for the camera's little red light to flick on, knowing that's the signal for Diane Sawyer to turn to you and begin one of her famously analytical interviews. The idea of fielding her questions is probably a bit nerve-racking to most.
Now imagine answering her questions while performing surgery.
Back in 2000, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo demonstrated an actual LASIK surgery on Ms. Sawyer's set—on her co-anchor Jack Ford, no less—responding to her inquiries while deftly performing Mr. Ford's procedure.
Though gutsy, it's not surprising. Even more than a decade ago, Dr. Russo was more comfortable with lasers than many of his colleagues. He was one of 10 physicians invited to take part in the FDA's initial testing of refractive surgery in 1990, and went on to help introduce many evolutions of the technique. He has been profiled in The New York Times on several occasions, with the paper once saying they would look to Dr. Russo for treatment "as far as the eye can see"—coincidentally the eye of a galaxy captured by the Hubble Deep Field Telescope.
Since opening his practice in the 1970s and making a name for himself as a premier cataract surgeon, Dr. Russo has become a go-to professional for all things laser, even being christened the "Godfather of LASIK" by Howard Stern. Today, at Dello Russo Laser Vision, he and his son Jeffrey have performed more than 150,000 procedures to date, and have hosted ophthalmologists from around the country for LASIK trainings. Despite their renown—the Dello Russos are the preferred practitioners of the Brooklyn Nets—they still personally perform each of their pre-procedure exams, laser surgeries, and personal appearances.
A board-certified plastic surgeon, fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and 2008 president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. D’Amico has bolstered the self-confidence of his patients for a span of more than 20 years. CoolSculpting treatments employ a pain-free, nonsurgical alternative to eradicating extra pounds that trespass on waistline and belly territories. Ideal candidates possess small amounts of body fat and maintain healthy lifestyles of regular calisthenics and stolen-gym-towel collections; these select individuals can seek to reduce love-handle presence from 22% to 25%. CoolSculpting terminates corpulent corpuscles with a selective cooling device, allowing the body to purge chilled fat cells through natural execratory functions. Like swimming in tubs of gelatin, this painless procedure requires no anesthesia, and clients may return to daily life after the one-hour process concludes.
