At Beverly Oaks Surgery, clients relax in the experienced hands of a team that includes cosmetic surgeons who've appeared on Dr. 90210. The doctors' services combine beauty-enhancing surgical procedures such as liposuction and rhinoplasty with noninvasive orthopedic and podiatric treatments. Hanging lamps softly illuminate the khaki-toned reception area that greets the soon-to-be-svelte before they proceed to their free consultation on how to make your own hanging lamps out of hoarded-up compliments.
When it comes to the cakes at Passions Pastries, no two bites are every quite the same. That's because owner Darlene sneaks a hint of other desserts inside her cakes and cupcakes, separating layers of Meyer lemon cake with a lemon pie filling and topping a classic vanilla cake with banana pudding and crumbled wafers. Even her classic flavors incorporate unique elements, with carrot cupcakes sweetened with chunks of pineapple and chocolate-on-chocolate cupcakes topped with chocolate Italian buttercream. Her skills at baking, frosting, and keeping cakes from growing too large didn't just win her a spot on every local sweet tooth's radar; they also earned her a spot on the Food Network's popular Cupcake Wars.
Dr. Isaac Kashani didn’t always know he was going to be a dentist, but looking back at his upbringing, you’d think he was born for it. By age 15, Dr. Kashani was already combining his intelligence and superior manual dexterity in junior-college classes and auto-mechanics courses that he took in addition to a full schedule of high-school classes. Now, his years of experience and obsession with perfecting even the smallest details manifest themselves in a full menu of cosmetic and restorative dental services. Additionally, patients at Lasting Impressions can benefit from the work of Dr. Kashani's colleague, Dr. Sargon Lazarof, who invented the same-day implant.
During treatments, high-magnification optics and high-power microscopes guide the doctors' hands to the millimeter as they seek out the deepest cavities while continually devoting themselves to comforting patients.

Dr. Kiai educates his patients on all their cosmetic options, including Invisalign braces, and restorative options, including CEREC imaging technology that expedites the process of designing dental crowns.
After being diagnosed with celiac disease in 1997, Pam MacDonald began scouring local stores for gluten-free options and employees knowledgeable enough to assist in her quest. Frustrated by her lack of success, Pam took matters into her own hands and opened Pam MacD's Gluten-Free Market, a store praised by New York Magazine's Grub Street Los Angeles for its wide selection of glutenless eats and tasting stations. Pam stocks her shelves with high-caliber products such as Organic Clover milk and Maplegrove mac 'n' cheese cups and sources some items from local and independent brands. Her cadre of well-informed employees expertly navigates rows of fresh, frozen, and refrigerated foods, guiding visitors through a selection whose breadth and variety supports the truth of Pam's mantra: "There is life after wheat!"
Walking into Mickey Fine Pharmacy & Grill, one may get the sensation of having stepped into a snapshot of the past. “The Beverly Hills business lays claim to being the only remaining pharmacy in the region with a counter and soda fountain, where patrons can enjoy old-time favorites such as egg-cream sodas and hand-spun malted shakes,” says a reporter for the Los Angeles Business Journal. Perched at the original pharmacy counter, which has been serving food since 1962, customers hoist hunger-defeating burgers or freshly grilled sandwiches. Servers deliver hand-spun milk shakes and malts crafted with artisan ice cream and crowned with whipped cream like a court summons from King Candy. The aisles are still stocked with beauty and healthcare products, which customers peruse, distracted by the aromas of espresso, breakfast burritos, and housemade meatloaf.
