A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing. Typically found inside retail stores, RediClinics don't require any appointments, making walk-in service as seamless as the plot of most Newhart fan fiction. In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
Under the medical direction of Dr. David Braunreiter, the staff at You Only Younger provide skincare and beauty-enhancement services using only medically proven products. Licensed aestheticians Donna and Sheila perform skin-moisturizing facials to combat blemishes and signs of aging. Board-certified Kami Owen, a nurse practitioner, administers injections of dermal fillers such as Botox to erase fine lines. With technology such as the micro laser peel, the team can also remove outermost layers of skin to exfoliate with absolute precision ranging from 6 to 50 microns per treatment. Laser services also extend to tattoo and hair removal as well as fading stretch marks and spider veins that don’t look as cool as Spider-Man’s. To treat cellulite and loose skin on thighs, arms, and chins, they use The Reaction by Viora, a system featured on The Doctors.
When non-life-threatening medical trouble arises, MedSpring’s immediate-care physicians provide quick treatment without the long waits of the emergency room or the difficulty in securing last-second appointments with a primary-care physician. The center's medical staff prescribes treatments for allergies and coughs, treats fever and flu, and tends to broken bones and sprains. Walk-ins and same-day appointments accommodate all manner of unexpected injuries, and next-day appointments accommodate injuries foretold by fortune cookies. Complimentary beverages and snacks nourish family members as they await their loved ones' treatments. Patients, meanwhile, are tended to in private suites furnished with couches, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and coloring tables to amuse children. Unlike a search-and-rescue st. bernard, MedSpring accepts most major insurance plans. Patients are also asked to fill out a brief written survey and with their permission, MedSpring posts good and bad reviews to their website.
Back in 1993, Dr. Sterling Carter snatched up his first biology degree. Undaunted by post-graduate malaise, he tucked into a Physical Therapy Bachelors program, before ordering up a second helping of academia with a Masters in Physical Therapy and then completing a doctorate in the subject from Simmons College. Perhaps the preternatural focus came from his military career, which he embarked on five years before he ever cart-wheeled into his first biology class. Today, he continues to serve in the military as a therapist while managing his own business for private citizens, Sterling Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation.
In addition to the good old fashioned assisted stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and massage commonly found at many physical therapy practices, Dr. Carter makes use of technological innovations hot of the technology presses. In the hands-on department, he and staff conduct spinal decompression treatments for the neck and back, using a device that mechanically, but gently, stretches the back bone. He also unholsters cold lasers—non-thermal lights which can aid in reducing inflammation, pain, and the number of minutes per day you feel like you're not at a rave. Regardless of what treatment patients come to see him for—which ranges from injury rehabilitation to sports enhancement—Dr. Carter makes sure that nobody waits for more than 10 minutes.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
