Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.
Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.

At Integrative Chiropractic Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Sherin Bourne sees no reason to infiltrate the body's natural rhythms with drugs and surgery when her patients carry the ability to heal within their own bodies. She taps into the body's self-healing properties through the energy that courses through its nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments promote better brain-body communication, and laser therapy helps heal injured tissue without breaking the skin. As a certified hypnotherapist, Dr. Bourne also helps patients overcome emotional issues and addiction.
Lasers reach beneath the surface of the skin, targeting the pigment in the root of the hair, which eases or eliminates growth. Quick, intense pulses of light directed at the face fade the appearance of spider veins or rosacea. Permanent cosmetics applied to eyes, lips, and brows subtly enhance faces and give the wearers more time in the morning to focus on harvesting their own coffee beans. Body Chic - Cosmetic MedSpa’s service-oriented and expert medical staff, led by Edward Buch, MD, performs these treatments and others on its quest to help clients find their aesthetic ideal. Additional treatments include vampire face-lifts, G-spot amplification, C-section-scar release, and semipermanent eyelash extensions.
