When it comes to her patients’ health, employing one school of thought isn’t enough for naturopathic doctor Mai Nguyen-Pham. That’s why, at All Naturopathic Clinic, she incorporates five wellness philosophies— clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counseling, physical medicine, and homeopathic medicine—to broaden her approach to improving patients’ well-being. With physical medicine’s colon-hydrotherapy and massage sessions, Dr. Nguyen-Pham helps improve her patients’ circulatory and immune systems, whereas her understanding of botanical medicine allows her to prescribe natural dietary supplements to support function of the liver, digestive tract, or respiratory system. From this diverse repertoire, Dr. Nguyen-Pham creates a custom regimen of treatments to aid each patient in any number of wellness goals, such as losing weight, overcoming insomnia, or becoming Fabio.

Named for the endless view overlooking the wooded Mountain Park area of West Lake Oswego, Vista Massage and Wellness lets clients gaze at sweeping vista as massage therapists' hands sweep over their backs. When designing massage treatments, licensed therapist Bree Ashby calls upon a variety of techniques that include Swedish, deep tissue, trigger-point therapy, hot-stone massage, and injury care. Chair and table massages are available in the Vista studio, which features heavy drapes that can close out the outside world if fighter jets are buzzing around the massage studio again.
Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
At Mountain Park Health Clinic, Dr. Kenneth Rifkin channels more than 30 years of experience in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture to attempt to bring down nail fungus with quick laser treatments. During the procedure, Dr. Rifkin administers a laser treatment to the nail bed, breaking down nail fungus with heat gentle enough not to wake any penguins the patient may be cradling. The heat aides in the treatment of the nail bed's infection, hopefully resulting in a gradual return of rosy, healthy nails. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and helps to bestow clients with confidence in their digits during winter vacations to the islands and postgame handshakes with the opposing team's hot-dog vendor.
The staff at Northwest Medical Clinic harnesses the power of CoolGlide laser technology to safely diminish the appearance of spider veins. Having dispatched with invasive sclerotherapy needles, staff members wield hand pieces that zap red or purple vessels or trespassing pirate ships with pulses of light. The laser is gentle enough for any skin tone, including tanned complexions, and capably diminishes superficial facial veins. The module's copper cooling element minimizes discomfort to a mild sting, which may be soothed with topical anesthesia or morse-code lullabies tapped on the dermal surface.
Patients of Dr. Kenneth A. Janoff may recognize the vascular surgeon from his appearances on AM Northwest and KGW News, where he introduced viewers to the latest treatment options for varicose and spider veins. Off camera, he helms Bridgeport Vein Center alongside Dr. Patrick M. Lehti––an accomplished vascular surgeon with more than 25 years of experience––and a team that includes registered nurses specializing in sclerotherapy, dermal fillers, and laser rejuvenation. Together, the staff pools their collective expertise to restore smooth, youthful skin and treat venous diseases with the most up-to-date treatments. After an ultrasound exam that detects and analyzes problem veins, the team charts a treatment plan that could include ambulatory phlebectomy (surgical removal) or sclerotherapy––a method that targets veins with an injectable solution which causes them to break up, move out of the condo they share with healthy veins, and eventually become reabsorbed back into the body. As an alternative to surgery, the doctors may also turn to the state-of-the-art Venefit treatment, which collapses the blood tunnels by heating them from the inside out via a catheter and typically allows patients to return to normal activities within a day.
