Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
Rick Verastegui is a jack-of-all-trades. As a kid, Rick could be spotted marching around his yard holding a trashcan above his head, imitating either bodybuilder Charles Atlas or the neighborhood's most muscular garbage man. Although he eventually set the trashcan down, Rick never lost his passion for health. He carried that into adolescence and adulthood, earning a black belt in karate, playing football, and becoming a certified personal trainer.
In between all of that, Rick found time to earn his master's degree in business, plus degrees in Spanish, government, and economics—all of which he taught at some point. Still, fitness remained an integral part of his life. Rick expanded on his already lengthy resumé by becoming a nationally certified massage therapist, a skill he practices extensively at Unearth the Power. Rick also provides weight-training, stretching, and bodywork services, all while using his diverse background to connect with clients.
Wielding the latest technology, epidermal specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates beautify skin from the inside out. A staple in facial care, the microdermabrasion treatment polishes cheeks with a diamond-tipped wand to buff off dull skin cells and leave faces as smooth and radiant as a freshly shaved spotlight. Next, a Hydro Wand swipes cheeks with personalized concoctions of facial products, employing exfoliation to shuttle serums deep into dermises. Newly softened faces, bearing fewer fine lines and smaller pores, can immediately return to their serious business of issuing smiles and frowns without downtime.
As a mother, Dr. Kimberly Roberts knows that women need more than just medical attention—they need emotional attention, too. In her words, “I will always give patients the time and attention necessary to address all of their concerns.” Dr. Roberts and Dr. Ceeccy Yang, also a kind and empathetic mother, oversee the all-female team of medical professionals at Contemporary Women's Health, where they help women achieve healthier lives through gynecology services and obstetrics care.
While the center’s medical professionals attend to matters of the body, aestheticians and massage therapists work to rejuvenate spirits and boost beauty. Spa services yield smoother, healthier skin, and include facials, laser hair removal, and waxing. Massage therapy, on the other hand, relieves muscular tension and relaxes firmly clenched tendon fists.
