After deciding to be a doctor at the age of 9, Dr. Peter Wishnie entered the world of sports, gaining a firsthand look at the orthopedic issues unique to athletes. Years later, he began applying this knowledge, working alongside three podiatrists to help make feet happy enough to applaud themselves awkwardly. His team treats and prevents a wide array of orthopedic, skin, nail, and diabetic foot issues with clinical pedicures, as well as massage, waxing, and nail-oriented care.
The proprietors of Gleason Wellness and Rehabilitation Center believe that however predisposed the body is toward wellness, it often becomes blocked by age, stress, and unavoidable external forces. Surgery is a common answer to health concerns, but it may not be the right one. That’s why Dr. Gleason’s licensed therapists offer less-invasive avenues to attain wellness, such as acupuncture, physical therapy, and private chiropractic care.
Dr. Ibrahim Haro, DPM, a podiatrist since 1998, has seen it all when it comes to the foot and ankle. Although he excels in treating complications associated with diabetes, Dr. Haro specializes in ameliorating heel pain and toes fungus. During laser fungus-removal treatments, he infuses the toenail with light energy and dissolves the fungus and lint particles that reside beneath it. Dr. Haro practices at two locations: one in Jersey City and the other in Clifton.
Dr. Jeffrey Wise specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. Dr. Wise graduated from Yale College before attending med school at Cornell University and completing his residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn with the department’s highest award for research and innovation in his field, and he now teaches facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the New York University School of Medicine. When he’s not lecturing students, publishing medical articles, or fine-tuning his surgical skills on miniature dolls, Dr. Wise can be found at New Jersey Facial Plastic Surgery, repairing broken noses, pinning back protruding ears, and lifting eyelids and faces. He also subtly improves appearances with minimally invasive laser tattoo removal, facial peels, and Botox.
Doctors Joseph and Deborah Lozito created The Institute for Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition in an effort to curtail the nation's growing obesity epidemic. The two pool their 45 years of combined medical experience with the expertise of CBS 2 News–featured nutritionist Jennifer Burns Katafigiotis to develop customized weight-loss programs. The institute's weight-loss plans include a combination of meticulous medical analysis, hours-long tickle-fights, and meal replacements. The meal replacements have been shown to help participants adjust to healthier portion sizes and shed pounds.
