Surgeons need not apply at Bardonia Physical Therapy. That's because their physicians and physical therapists strive to heal musculoskeletal injuries without putting clients under the knife. The team has spent the past 20 years both aiding recoveries and preventing recurring injuries. They soothe conditions that assail an anatomy chart’s worth of body parts, from necks to lower backs and joints. When they aren't treating athletes and dancers, they address women's wellness issues and perform ergonomic assessments that encourage businesses not to make their employees sit in driftwood chairs.

The registered nurses and board-certified doctors that comprise the staff at The Rockland Vein Center put their impressive educational and professional backgrounds to work in treating a variety of skin issues. One of the center's main focuses is in minimizing the appearance of varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy and Venefit procedures. But these clinical aesthetic specialists also tackle wrinkles and fine lines with facial injectables. Whichever treatment clients opt for, the team keeps the setting relaxing with the help of warm blankets, ambient music, and consultations that go over all the treatment and high-five options.
The scalpel doesn't fall far from the tree in the Korngold family. Dr. Louis Korngold, director of Plastic Surgery Associates of New City, was joined in his practice by his son, Dr. Jay M. Korngold, in 2001. The father-son team lifts, tucks, and reconstructs problematic areas of the anatomy in their fully accredited, onsite operating room, and smoothes out wrinkles with nonsurgical injectables in the comfort of their office.
Dr. Ayman Z. Matta founded New York Eye Institute after completing a fellowship at the Bucci Cataract and Laser Vision Institute in Pennsylvania. Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, he not only specializes in refractive procedures, but also performs surgery to ease ailments such as cataracts, glaucoma, and tears made of grapefruit juice. His colleague Dr. Paul N. Guerriero focuses more on retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, while the optometrist on staff, Dr. Seung-Hee Choi, doles out glasses and contact prescriptions, plus pre- and post-op care.
New Breathe Yoga invites students of all ages and skill levels to participate in group, semiprivate, and private classes.

Dr. Lance A. Johnson and his staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists combine their noninvasive skill sets to administer holistic healing without the need for drugs or surgery. He envisions the entire person being well, not just having healthy lungs or healthy knees or healthy banana-peel sensors. This approach, in Dr. Johnson's view, dodges the problem of merely making patients' symptoms go away instead of getting to the root of those symptoms' cause. His staff devotes themselves to getting to this root and, once there, correcting it with such tried and true chiropractic techniques as adjustments, massages, or physical therapy.
