Michael Dooley used to suffer from chronic headaches and lower-back pain. It wasn't until he sought out chiropractic care that he found relief, which inspired him to become a chiropractor and open his own practice. At Dooley Family Chiropractic, the doctor of chiropractic provides a variety of services, including spinal adjustments, x-rays, and electronic muscle stimulation. Dr. Dooley is joined by a massage therapist who bolsters the chiropractor's drug-free methods with kneading to banish tension and improve circulation.
Board-certified and a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Amy Buchler and her devout staff of mouth menders tend to chompers of all ages, utilizing the latest in orthodontic technology to achieve stunning, straight-edged smiles. To begin, an expert exam scours mouths for leaning tooth towers before a pair of x-rays determines a patient’s need for incisor-aligning treatment.

In addition to skin-care treatments such as Botox and services with the Obagi Skin product line, Calvine Urgent Care is open 365 days a year to usher in a flurry of ailing patients so that the board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners can work their medical magic on non-life-threatening symptoms, from fevers to broken arms. Neutral-toned chairs and a flat-screen TV distract patients before Calvine's friendly team fixes them up with medical equipment, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and a full range of diagnostic tests for drugs, pregnancy, or hemoglobin. In case patients cross into more serious medical territory, the clinic's fully loaded procedure rooms come filled with intubation kits, EKGs, crash carts, and defibrillators for restarting hearts and toasting marshmallows. The office's staff helps urgent medical patients by taking them within 30 minutes of their arrival, as well as offering ZipPass, an online appointment scheduler.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
