Waiting nine months to meet someone you know you are going to love for the rest of your life can seem like an eternity. Knowing this, the techs at Love at First Sight Ultrasound speed up the process by using advanced ultrasound equipment that captures 3-D images and 4-D video to introduce eager parents to their unborn babies. Each 10- to 30-minute bonding session can be shared with up to eight family members, friends, or loved ones who gaze at the room's 46-inch television screen displaying the little one yawning, sleeping, or moving around. And depending on which of the eight available packages they choose, parents can also listen to the heartbeat, discover the sex of the baby, or zoom in to see if the tyke inherited the family's propensity for facial hair. To ensure a relaxing experience, Love at First Sight fills the private room with soothing music or tunes personally brought in by the parents, and also provides a range of keepsakes, from CDs and DVDs to high-quality, glossy pictures and plush stuffed animals.

Dr. Brandon A. Macy learned that the toe bone's connected to the heel bone at Illinois College of Podiatric Medicine, and today he tends to the foot-related needs of his patients at Clark Podiatry Center.

Dr. John Zarcone, a board-certified physician, lessens the aesthetic evidence of aging using FDA-approved Botox injections. After consulting with patients about their desired outcomes, the doctor will administer appropriate amounts of the wrinkle-ousting substance. The formula blocks nerve impulses and allows muscles to relax, rendering a brow as smooth as a freshly zambonied bowling lane. Results may take a few days to completely develop, and can last up to four months. The procedure, which can take as little as 10 minutes, may cause mild discomfort similar to snuggling with a pet porcupine.

Dr. Leung followed in the healing footsteps of his father, Dr. Ching S. Leung, and together they opened the Staten Island Pain & Rehabilitation Medicine P.C. office. The space evokes a homey atmosphere, with high-back leather benches and paintings of serene vistas to match the mood of exiting patients.
