At Highpoint Family Vision, Dr. Kinsey Honeyman and her staff help patients of all ages protect their vision with extensive optic care and designer eyewear. Optometrists screen eyeballs for high blood pressure and glaucoma during eye exams with full retinal imaging, or they perform precise diagnoses at any time of day with 24-hour emergency care. The practice has a room devoted to contact-lens styles, and a full lineup of frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade encircle custom-made ultralight polycarbonate lenses in progressive bifocal, trifocal, and UV-protection compositions.
The staff at this rehabilitation center believe that everyone reacts differently to a medical treatment—what works for one person may not be the best for another. That’s why they use an array of tests, from blood work to kinetic-chain dysfunction exams, to determine each clients’ unique needs. The experts then formulate the ideal plan of action from the center’s repertoire of treatment options, which is then modified to work with the client’s individual needs. Adjustment techniques shift spinal columns into proper alignment, and soft-tissue treatments improve muscle function after napping upon a porcupine.
An experienced staff performs services ranging from lash extensions to breast augmentation. Professionally administered facial peels and injectables such as Botox erase age lines. In addition to cosmetic procedures, the team can also handle women's health issues with services including family planning, hormone therapy, and ultrasound tests performed by bat echolocation.
Dr. Hartman & Associates marshal more than 80 combined years of dental experience and the advantages of technology to preserve people's showy bones. The mouth's day at the spa begins with a comprehensive exam in which teeth and gums are scoured, oral history recounted, and any concerns addressed, such as the acting out of neglected molars (a $71 value). After the exam, x-rays snap bitewing pictures (a $44 value) and panoramic shots (a $74 value), detailing tooth health in an elegant black and white palette. Finally, a hygienist thoroughly cleans choppers in a flurry of polishing and flossing, stunning plaque and bacteria into submission (an $81 value). In addition, children's cleanings include a fluoride treatment and office-wide game of hide and seek.
In 1986, Dr. Vincinet Pennipede, O.D was fresh out of the military and opening up his first office off of Highway 69. There, he put in long hours and built a base of clients. Today, he oversees a team of eight optometrists and 35 qualified employees at five offices in the Kansas City area. Patrons peruse each warmly-lit furnished studio's collection of frames from high-end labels such as Silhouette and Coach. In-office labs create futuristic lenses of high-index plastic or hybrid Trivex quickly for patrons who need to return to work or judge a beauty pageant for snowflakes. Children protect their new specs with the store's Kid's Promise warranty, and adults consult with experienced doctors on the benefits of refractive surgery and restorative treatments for aging eyes.
