Not even x-rays see all. Dr. Henry Slomowitz recognized this more than a decade ago, becoming an early adopter of diagnostic ultrasound, which can identify problems that a foot might normally hide from an x-ray. Diagnostic ultrasound is only the tip of the technological iceberg—aided by his staff of four, Dr. Slomowitz performs laser nail-fungus treatments and radio-frequency heel pain relief, among other advanced services.
Drs. Lana Brunis and Ari Dubov and the team at Madison Avenue Dental Arts prioritize patient comfort. In addition to the cable televisions beside every chair, the office features low-noise drills and lower-radiation digital x-rays. The office's same-day crown service saves patients an extra appointment by crafting a realistic ceramic crown in just 90 minutes. Laser dentistry is also part of the dental team's repertoire. This minimally invasive service uses a high-energy laser to gently treat teeth and gums with nominal pain and speedy recovery times.
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.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Luis A. Zapiach reconstructs bodily fixer-uppers with a combination of surgical procedures and minimally invasive med-spa treatments. Invite fine lines and wrinkles to their own vanishing act courtesy of Dysport, a prescription injection that temporarily removes creases and furrows from the facial area. Following the 15-minute procedure, skin looks smoother and more youthful, leaving ample space for kisses to land and panther tattoos to prowl. Similar to Botox, Dysport’s FDA–approved solution prevents facial muscles from contracting near targeted areas such as furrows between the eyebrows. Patients typically require little to no downtime, though some may experience some redness or swelling. Like summer-camp romances, results from treatment generally last up to three to four months.
A yawn, a smile, a flinch of the arm—before a baby is even born, he or she has begun communicating. Baby's Premiere 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio gives families and parents-to-be a live look-in at these mini milestone moments, all without installing a window on the mother's belly. A certified sonographer with 15 years of experience built Baby's Premiere to be a place for bonding. Relatives do just that by watching their newest addition to the family on a 46-inch flat-screen TV, and reliving the experience time and again with videos, photos, and other keepsakes.
