Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.

To Samson Hair Restoration's physicians, hair restoration is equal measures of art and science. Although some surgeons concern themselves with follicle count and price per graft, the Samson team takes a collaborative, results-based approach, starting cases with artistic renderings of ideal scalps to give patients a clear idea of their post-op cranial canopy or what they would look like with fettuccini for hair. Staffers draw on the Quadrian hairline technique—which focuses on the front hairline to create a natural-looking coif—and plastic-surgery tricks to help to minimize donor-area scarring.
