If practice makes perfect, David Whiting, MD, must be approaching that standard: he has performed more than 95,000 LASIK eye surgeries in his career. While racking up those impressive stats, the board-certified ophthalmologist has held medical-director positions at institutions including LasikPlus and Joffe MediCenter. At Whiting Clinic LASIK + Eye Care, he and his staff make use of both extensive experience and advanced technology to perform treatments including LASIK eye surgery, cataract procedures, and lens implants to treat severe nearsightedness or just allow for useful backup eyes. Patients get to experience the fun side as well as the medical side of the intricate equipment: during their visit, they'll interface with iPad systems and select their own music to listen to. The clinic itself was built to Dr. Whiting's own specifications, including eco-friendly construction methods, sweeping glass walls that light up with changing colors at night, and nature-inspired artwork that allows patients to revel in their renewed vision.

The neighbor's dog has eaten all of your prized flowers: Don't fly off the handle and create a rift between you and your neighbor that no amount of friendly fence talk and accidental-mail exchange can heal. Simply compromise by asking his dog to marry you. The bonds of matrimony will be even stronger than those of pet ownership, and soon the phrase "that filthy mutt is tearing up my flowers" will be replaced with "my lovely spouse is working in the garden." Congratulations!
