The health buffs at Orthomolecular Nutrition and Wellness Center take the fight for wellness to the body’s microscopic frontlines, using vitamins, hormones, and other supplements to restore vim and vigor lost to age or ill health. During one-on-one consultations, they first sniff out deficiencies and imbalances with a variety of blood tests and questionnaires, giving them a clear view of underlying problems. From there, they can advise on protocols that help their clients lose weight, age more gracefully, or improve their steeplechase performance.
Board-certified dermatologists Dr. Virginia Schekorra and Dr. Charles Dewberry strive to resolve patients' skin concerns with clinical and cosmetic solutions. At The Dermatology Center, they address medical conditions such as eczema and rosacea and combat signs of aging with six types of injectables and dermal fillers or skincare products such as SkinMedica and iS Clinical. Licensed aesthetician Audrey Garcia-Vigotty is certified in the use of intense-pulsed-light technology—which she uses to remove hair or spider veins—and is a certified permanent-makeup artist. The team's certified eyelash-extension expert can beautify guests' faces and enable them to dry fresh coats of nail polish with a few dramatic blinks.
The trio of board-certified eye surgeons at The Weinstock Laser Eye Center combines specialties in cataract surgery, LASIK, and corneal surgery to treat a full range of ocular ailments. Each of the doctors’ prestigious training is evident in the extensive curriculum vitae, which includes post-graduate studies, residencies, and fellowships at such institutes as Johns Hopkins and The Eye Institute of West Florida. The team’s eyesight-sharpening offerings include the LASIK procedure and corneal transplants, along with astigmatism correction that defuzzes views with toric-lens implants. Surgeons also utilize 3-D-guided microsurgical systems in the operating room for the precision removal of cataracts and particularly small monocles.
Medical director Dr. Eric Weinstock draws upon his two areas of expertise, psychiatry and bariatrics, as he helps patients outsmart their extra pounds. By combining vitamins and appetite suppressants (upon doctor approval) with moderate exercise and confidence-boosting counseling, he is able to lighten bathroom-scale loads where other, less personalized programs have failed. And by helping dieters slim down, he is reducing their risk of health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and respiratory problems.
The dermatologists at Bay Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery provide treatment geared toward two ends: skin health and skin beauty. Their chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal keep skin smooth by removing dead cells and unwanted hair from the surface. Dermatology services screen skin for signs of melanoma, help treat acne, and use UVB light therapy to alleviate symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. The staff also removes spider veins by injecting a special solution or reduces the appearance of fine lines with the injection of prescription Botox. Bay Dermatology stocks a product lineup that includes ColoreScience, Glo Minerals, Latisse, NeoCutis, and Image Skin Care. The center traces its origins to 1988, and since then the team has opened offices in seven local towns.
