At San Diego Vascular Center, a team of specialists led by board-certified vascular surgeons presides over med-spa treatments focused exclusively on spider and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy’s fine needles inject a deactivating solution into the vein, while EVLT uses lasers to do the same work. Each of these treatments is less invasive and painful than surgery, and results in less downtime, ensuring that patients can soon resume their daily routine of walking backward on a merry-go-round for hours.
Dr. Peter Do and his highly trained staff gently exorcise debris from teeth to unearth the pristine smiles of patrons kicking back in front of a flat-screen television. Exams investigate the overall health of teeth and gums, letting hygienists peek around molars before whisking away grime lodged in the nooks between pearlies. X-rays of jaw lines ferret out hidden health issues or loyalties to taffy to encourage earlier treatment. By tending to only one patient or set of wind-up dentures at a time, Dr. Do grants undivided attention to pieholes in appointments scheduled during the week or between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturdays in a professional office ringed by earthy hues and potted plants.
By picking fish caught from the Chesapeake Bay, the Pacific, and the tropics, Edge of the Ranch, formerly known as Nugent’s Firegrille, gives its menu the depth and variety it needs to reflect classic American culinary sensibilities without growing stale or predictable. The chef mixes up the menu with choices such as line-caught swordfish, organic-fed salmon, and baked Maine lobster. Edge of the Ranch supports sustainable-fishing methods while offering guests the healthiest seafood possible. Alongside the fresh fish, the staff also fire grills Angus steaks—such as filet mignon and flat iron—and all of the eatery’s fare can be paired with draft beers, signature martinis, fine wines, and sea shanties.
Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
Using fine Boar's Head ingredients, the sandwich mavens at Fat Boy's fashion massive portions of handheld nourishment. Sink into the soft-breaded benevolence of a Super BLT with cream cheese and avocado ($7.99) or a Hot Poppa sandwich’s strata of oven-gold turkey and monterey jack enlivened by jalapeño peppers and Flamin' Hot Cheetos ($7.49). Fat Boy's tests the tensile strength of a french roll with the Manwich, a medley of turkey, hot dogs, and Andy Capp’s chili-cheese fries ($7.99), as well as with the Rocky, which boasts corned beef, pastrami, and swiss and cheddar ($8.49). The eatery builds a quarter-pound of meats into almost all of its sandwiches, constructing cold deli favorites out of tuna, egg salad, and italian meats. Complimented by the salty crackle of chips and the sweet slurp of 20-ounce soft drinks, a midday meal at Fat Boys' leaves hunger pangs down for a standing eight count.
