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. James Morgan has worked tirelessly to bring healthcare to Cité Soleil, Haiti. In 2006, he and a human-rights attorney founded The Lamp for Haiti, which provides medical services to Haitians living in one of the poorest communities in the Western Hemisphere. He treats these patients with the same compassion and respect as he does his patients at M.C. Medical Group, where he is one of five highly accredited doctors; others boast such achievements as graduating magna cum laude from Yale and receiving an assistant professorship at Loyola University Health Systems. Together, they literally treat the body from the inside out with both an internal-medicine division and a dermatology division that tends to hair, skin, and nails. M.C. Medical Group also houses a cosmetic and laser-skincare clinic where patients can receive facials and peels or have their barcode tattoos read.
The team at Advanced Physical Therapy uses drug-free techniques to assuage aches, strengthen muscles, and rehabilitate injuries. Their back-care program helps patients return to a normal routine after an accident or a limbo tournament, while an athletic-conditioning regimen facilitates training to optimize fitness and endurance. Staff members also utilize their extensive anatomy and physiology expertise during massages, which can tame stiff joints, relieve tension, and inspire a deep-seated sense of calm.
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.
Husband-and-wife team Clarvin and Czarina Ombajin work together to ease pain and promote healing.
