Doctors Wellington Chen and John Lieurance draw from years of experience and their own specialties to help rebuild bodies with regenerative therapies.

Dr. Lieurance uses his specialties in functional cranial release and functional neurology to help patients suffering from such conditions as migraines, vertigo, fibromyalgia, and Parkinson's disease.
Bill Shumate's career as a restaurateur began in 1964 when he opened a small burger shack that catered to the hearty appetites of University of Oklahoma students. After spending the next several decades opening and operating eateries, Shumate decided that his next venture should somehow honor his burger roots. He partnered with Joanie Corneil in 2006 and developed a concept choosing the name Square 1 Burgers to reflect this full-circle journey. Unlike that original restaurant, though, Square 1 Burgers grew over the years, eventually expanding to several locations throughout west central Florida.
Although the concept was intended to be a return to basics, Square 1 isn't constrained by traditional conventions. Patties of Meyer's all-natural red Angus beef, Kobe, lamb, ground buffalo, and portobello mushroom caps all appear between the buns, providing a wealth of options to consider before even thinking about toppings. This eclectic spirit is also apparent in the menu's selection of appetizers, which includes everything from sun-dried tomato and artichoke hummus to homemade double-dipped onion rings. Even the milkshakes made with Blue Bell ice cream seem like faithful renditions of an American classic at first. However, the grown-up versions with Baileys, vodka, and Kahlua or brandy, cr?me de cacao continue to demonstrate Square 1 Burgers' playful spirit.
The professionals at Rx Med Spa turn back the clock with noninvasive procedures aimed at smoothing and tightening skin. They de-wrinkle faces with Botox Cosmetic and reduce the appearance of cellulite with VelaShape—a body-contouring treatment that has graced the frames of Access Hollywood and the Rachael Ray Show. During elos skin-rejuvenation treatments, they use a combination of bipolar radio frequency and light energies to help fade sunspots and freckles that spell out secret messages to the moon. Clients can pile on multiple services in one day, relaxing in between treatments in a lounge area furnished with complimentary fruit and tea.
Ocean Blues combines the taste of seafood and steak with the haunting wails of live blues music. Diners sup on crispy margherita pizzas or St. Louis-style ribs and share plates of appetizers such as fish tacos, toasted ravioli, or corned-beef spring rolls. They can pair sweet-potato tots with a blackened bacon-and-blue-cheese burger or go with an entree of shrimp scampi or pecan-encrusted salmon. While listening to musicians belt out classic blues songs, guests sip craft beers, wines made by renowned musicians, and inventive blues-themed cocktails named after famous guitarists, legendary songs, or favorite chord progressions.

A woman reclines on soft upholstery as she gazes through a sun-soaked window at the glittering Hudson Bayou.
