Dr. Mikhail Burakovskiy's expertise in podiatry has earned him not one, not two, but three certifications from the American Board of Multiple Specialties—in primary care, in podiatric surgery, and in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds and diabetic footwear. It is this expertise⎯along with his skills with laser systems, injections, and surgical tools to alleviate foot problems such as bunions, ankle pain, and toenail fungus⎯that has helped him become the footcare specialist of fellow doctors.
Dr. Burakovskiy has also been featured on King 5 News as a podiatrist who doesn't chide women for wearing high heels, instead offering foot-pillow injections that create extra padding in the ball of the foot to reduce pain more efficiently than wrapping feet in bubble wrap. He is joined by Dr. Jacqueline Buckley, a Seattle native who has trained in foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine, and wound care. She attended Clark Atlanta University and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and has researched cadaveric achilles tendon transplantation, tendon repair, and amnion.

The human body’s healing mechanisms are always lying in wait, ready to rush to action in case a person skins their knee or catches a flu bug. Sometimes, however, they don’t work as fast or as well as they should. That’s when Nazanin Kimiai, Doctor of Naturopathy, steps in.
As the founder and medical director of Comprehensive Medical Center, Kimiai optimizes the body’s natural healing centers with treatments and therapies that blend Eastern philosophy with Western medical technology. This combination reflects the breadth of her training: she has an acupuncture license, a master’s degree in oriental medicine and acupuncture, and a degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. She also boasts postgraduate training in biological and oxidative medicine and proficiency in an array of advanced diagnostic tools, such as infrared cameras and electromagnetic frequencies.
A highly trained staff that includes seasoned hydrotherapist and spa medicine practitioner Melinda M. Beck, ND, rounds out Comprehensive Medical Center’s team. The staffers ease symptoms and root out underlying problems with acupuncture, homeopathy, detoxification, and hydrotherapy. They oversee a vast dispensary of supplements and hold the secrets of German biological medicine, which balances pH in the blood using tactics invented by Count Dracula’s pool boy.
Licensed acupuncturists Ke Zang and Ting Zhang studied and practiced traditional Chinese medicine in China years before moving to the United States. Their workplaces must feel somewhat like home, since the treatment rooms at their ACI Clinic & Wellness Center’s two locations are the settings for an array of traditional Chinese medicinal services, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, foot reflexology, qi gong therapy, and tui na bodywork.
Each location also offers chiropractic care and massage therapy, headed at the Kirkland location by Doctor of Chiropractic Allison Zang-Greene, whose specialty is neuromuscular disorders. To the north, at the Lynnwood location, chiropractic therapy is overseen by Doctor of Chiropractic W. Lance Elben, who has a knack for treating injury-related pain. The decor at each location has some unique features, but each interior is outfitted with pleasant green plants and pleasing artwork on the walls.
At Absolute Wellness, treatments are about the whole patient. While someone might come in specifically because of recurring headaches or an achy shoulder, experienced craniosacral therapist Dulcey focuses on those specific ailments, along with the patient's overall physical and emotional well-being. She's worked in physical therapy with a speciality in advanced manual therapy for more than two decades, and believes that while the body has the ability to heal itself, sometimes it forgets how. That's where she comes in, using her intuitive skills and experience to stimulate healing.
