With a repertoire that includes urgent, family, and occupational medicine, the physician-led staff at Affinity Immediate Care seeks to provide quicker and less-expensive services than emergency rooms. In addition to treating sprains, diabetes, and the flu, the specialists conduct work-related physicals and drug testing for employers. To keep ladies ship shape, the Well Woman program emphasizes the importance of annual examinations.
In his nearly 10-year obstetrics career, Dr. Maximos has seen all the thrill—and fears—of having a baby. To keep any worries at bay, the obstetrician and his trained and always-professional staff takes extra steps to ensure moms and moms-to-be feel as comfortable as possible. For starters, patients have every appointment with the same practitioner and nurses, from the pre-conceptual counseling to the big event in the delivery room. And though obstetrics is a big part of Dr. Maximos job description, like a stork with a diaper-commercial contract, it’s only half of what he does. The doctor is also a gynecologist who strives to enhance women's health through exams, birth control, STD treatments, and menopausal services including hormone-replacement therapy.
A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing. Typically found inside retail stores, RediClinics don't require any appointments, making walk-in service as seamless as the plot of most Newhart fan fiction. In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at both Gulfgate Vision and Gulf Vision. To assess eye health and help guests find the optimal form of vision correction, her services range from annual exams to visual-field-screening analyses for early detection of diseases. The staff then fits eyes for contact lenses, or leads patients through a stock of designer frames from brands such as Burberry, Juicy Couture, Gucci, and Versace to ensure that clients look stylish when they see themselves clearly in the mirror.
