Before earning a set of scrubs and the title of Doctor of iDevice, each employee at iHospital—featured in the The Wall Street Journal—must first pass a series of technical certifications. Just as real doctors specialize in either plaster or papier-mâché leg casts, the technicians focus their abilities specifically on Apple devices, including iPhones and iPods, performing many repairs in minutes. The store also carries a range of accessories from brands such as LifeProof, OtterBox, and Speck.

The center's skilled nutritionists empower dieters to rid themselves of unwanted heft utilizing a two-visit treatment plan. During the first step of their shrinking sojourn, calorie-shedders undergo a full-body checkup at the hands of the center's expert staff, which includes physicians and nutritional educators. After surveying the dieter's medical history and hormone balance, nutritionists draft a personalized food plan that may include prescriptions for supplements or a new kitten to inspire increased frolicking. A bioimpedance measurement comparing body fat with nonfat is taken, along with overall body measurements. Following this first visit, it's up to the dieter to follow their new regimen, which imbues corporeal forms with health-building nutrients that will gradually help shed weight while teaching healthier dietary habits. On the second visit, staff specialists ensure that lean muscle mass is being built using a second bioimpedance analysis to scope out the body's fat content. Like a wizened history teacher who’s heard every excuse in the book, the bioimpedance analysis assesses actual fat loss versus bone density you left on the bus, or lean muscle mass you traded for a pudding pack.
