Performance Health Centers Of Atlanta pools the experience of a chiropractor and massage therapists to help clients get in shipshape condition. Dubbed “The Running Doctor,” Dr. John N. Thomas draws on his love of jogging, cycling, and other sports along with more than 15 years of experience as a board-certified doctor of chiropractic. At his side, certified massage therapist Parnisia Duckworth, brings her studies in holistic healing and the Daucik Method—a European sports-injury treatment—to the massage table. Together, they straighten askew spines, send stress and muscular tension fleeing from bodies, and give athletes the strength to get back on the field or burrow underneath it for the game-winning touchdown.
Atlanta Wellness and Weight Loss’s team of doctors watches over patients as they slim down, ensuring safe transformations during weight loss.

Their wellness services extend beyond weight loss, encompassing chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapy.
Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures.

In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
