Dr. Luis Gonzalez and Dr. Dennis Carr, the namesakes of Gonzalez & Carr, PC, both served a residency in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery after dental and medical school to master all aspects of oral surgery, including administering anesthesia.

Alabama Vision Center doesn’t have one single sight specialist on staff. They have six. The team of ODs, MDs, and an Au.D. draws upon varying skill sets and a staff of 32 technicians and office professionals to provide services ranging from LASIK vision correction to bifocal implants recommended for those with presbyopia or very tiny books. The technology on hand is unparalleled as well, with lasers that help with everything from blade-free corneal surgery to cataract removal to treatment for wet macular degeneration.
Of course, keeping eyesight healthy and strong from the get-go is the staff's number-one priority, and so they offer comprehensive exams that begin with an external inspection of the eyes and surrounding tissue, and end with a tonometry test to identify signs of glaucoma. In between, doctors take note of tracking abilities, visual field, refractive abilities, and colorblindness, and also perform an ophthalmoscopy test, where they inspect the retina to check for any detachment or sudden changes in its mood. A free hearing screening is also included with each patient's first visit, keeping jealous ears from feeling like eyes get all the attention.
Dr. Matthew Parker of Heritage Medicine wards off unsightly blemishes and Father Time's wrinkly wrath with noninvasive FDA-approved blue- and red-light facial treatments. During the 20-minute appointment, a qualified technician employs advanced Omnilux technology to help to turn back the hands of time and eradicate the oil-leaking nanobots that produce acne. Omnilux Blue bombards the body’s natural defenses with power-boosting wavelengths of light and a medically formulated cream, which work together to stimulate bacteria-neutralizing chemicals to reduce acne inflammation and promote healthy skin. Alternatively, Omnilux Revive, a red-light treatment, helps to stimulate the cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue repair, resulting in increased collagen synthesis and reduced wrinkles. Most patients experience little to no downtime, though some have reported symptoms similar to a slight sunburn or an intense moonburn.
