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.
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.
Helmed by licensed health and wellness director Dr. Michael Stewart, The Center for Wellness & Rehabilitation ensures long-term health with spinal adjustments, massage, acupuncture, and computerized diagnostics. Rather than treating symptoms as they occur or replacing aching body parts with frozen vegetables, the thoroughly experienced health professionals aim to strike at the root of pain and disease through treatments designed to promote spinal health and rehabilitation from pain or sports injuries.
Inside the office, a burbling waterfall joins with colorful pieces of artwork, relaxing visiting patients. Five treatment rooms spoke off from the main lobby, ensconcing guests in alcoves of cool blues and plush beds as they enjoy the healing benefits of chiropractic treatment, massage, and acupuncture.
Jersey Foot Care's podiatrist operates out of two clinics, where he casts a net of pedal wellness over northeastern New Jersey. The staff tackles both cosmetic and medical complaints, with surgical techniques and custom orthotics that can straighten hammer toes, smooth out bunions, and whisk away heel pain. Cognizant that some foot ailments leave patients in states of near-immobility, the team makes house calls for the homebound, elderly, or members of a toddler commune.
Dr. Roberto Gagliardi and Dr. Mari Noruzi know that small dental changes can make big differences in confidence. That’s why they practice conservative dentistry, emphasizing prevention before treatment. Should treatment become necessary, the team extends its conservative philosophy by making visual evidence of its services—such as teeth-colored resins and paper-thin custom veneers—virtually undetectable.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Roman Kreyman, wellness begins with the spine. He investigates a range of illnesses by looking for subluxations and pinched nerves in the spine that can disrupt the flow of communication from the brain to the organs. Once identified, he manually shifts discs and vertebrae into place during adjustments and corrective exercises.
But the doctor doesn’t stop at the spine. He also assuages muscular aches with massages and electrical-stimulation treatments, and his custom orthotics support straighter posture.
