Tucked inside of a full-service medical clinic, Premier Laser Care administers cosmetic and aesthetic treatments with the assistance of FDA-approved equipment and the supervision of board-certified doctor Carmen Popa. To reinstate youthful full-body beauty, Dr. Popa and her staff utilize ClearScan laser technology to vanquish unwanted hair and vascular issues such as spider veins or broken capillaries; broadband light therapy allows them to pulse away sun spots, age spots, redness, and other issues caused by aging, sun exposure, or a public reading of your fifth-grade diary. Lax skin around the eyes or on the body can be re-tightened with fractional resurfacing or SkinTyte II infrared energy, respectively, and finer lines and wrinkles find themselves swiftly smoothed out after injections of Botox or cosmetic dermal fillers.

When chiropractic physician Dr. Vincent Simokovich, DC, was 19 years old, he suffered a sports injury that would change his life forever. He was told he needed surgery on his lower back, but after watching both of his parents endure a lifetime of pain following their own back surgeries, Simokovich decided to forgo the invasive procedure. A relative introduced him to chiropractic care, which not only resolved his discomfort but also inspired a more-than-two-decade career helping others achieve similar relief. Simokovich is currently working on the completion of a diplomate in chiropractic neurology and metabolic function and directs Procare Wellness Center, where he and chiropractic physician Dr. Sam Galati, DC, take a multipronged approach to alleviating chronic health conditions.
Chiropractic physicians Simokovich and Galati—a former Air Force avionics specialist who is also currently pursuing further training in functional and metabolic medicine—maintain a multifaceted treatment philosophy that aims to unveil the underlying causes of illness. They combine neurological treatments such as spinal-decompression treatments, vibration therapy, olfactory stimulation, and adjustments to correct subluxation with lab testing designed to develop strategies based on a client’s metabolism. The duo also uses an innovative, laser-based technique to combat allergic responses commonly triggered by food, pet dander, or prolonged exposure to homework.
After completing his residency at Cambridge Hospital in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kevin Kane set forth in 1987 to continue the work started by his podiatrist father. At Kane Podiatry, he and Dr. Elizabeth Baracz keep patients comfortably on their feet by treating bunions, diagnosing sprains, and destroying nail fungus. Since foot ailments can strike at any age, they also offer pediatric podiatry services, encouraging parents to cover their babies’ feet with nonrestrictive shoes and to never let their children just fly through the air all day as it will hinder their bodies’ ability to bear weight.
People from 40 states and 12 countries have come to Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center for treatment. Though the holistic facility offers a range of traditional and alternative medical services, more than 8,000 patients from across the globe have arrived at its door with the specific goal of experiencing the Tenpenny Sensitivity Reduction Technique—T-SRT—an anti-allergy methodology developed by founder Sherri Tenpenny, DO, in 1997. The technique combines three complementary practices—kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure—to evaluate and redirect bodily energy. The treatment requires patients to be in contact with the allergen while the practitioner activates a series of acupressure points on the spine, arms, and legs, and it can provide relief from common irritants such as ragweed, food allergens, and infomercials.
The caring, multidisciplinary staff also provides nonpharmaceutical solutions to family health issues. Pediatrician and homeopathic physician Janet Levatin, MD, keeps kids healthy, and Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Grant helps patients manage their chronic pain. Licensed acupuncturist Linda Corlett treats issues from insomnia to weight gain with traditional and needle-free treatments, and holistic gynecologist Dr. Cindy Fraed keeps women healthy with infusions of bio-identical hormones. The center also features breast thermography, a radiation-free detection system that can identify areas of concern up seven years before the abnormality could be detected by traditional mammography.
