Urgent Care Manhattan is a private practice established by board-certified emergency doctors that assesses and tends to patients experiencing minor emergencies who need immediate care seven days a week. Although no replacement exists for an emergency room in the case of a life-threatening situation, the doctors at Urgent Care Manhattan will expertly address ailments, injuries, and infections that interfere with daily life, without requiring patients to wait several weeks for an appointment or a pre-appointment assessment appointment meeting. Drs. Melrose and Shipley may write a prescription or recommend treatment to resolve medical issues or prevent future ones, or they may discern a quicker route to recovery to mitigate the impact of the situation on a patient’s lifestyle, work, or competitive whittling career.
You won’t find the usual gym equipment you might see at most physical therapy offices at Dr. Shmuel Tatz’s studio. Instead, the office, overlooking a garden near Columbus Circle, showcases piles of books in six different languages, posters of the human anatomy, and most importantly, the doctor’s hands—a pivotal tool in his body tuning sessions. Osteotherapy is the mainstay of Dr. Tatz’s treatments, and he supplements this hands-on approach with yoga exercises, patient education, and perhaps even acupuncture. By “tuning” the body, the doctor can alleviate a variety of conditions, including chronic back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even broken ankles. It’s no wonder that famous faces, including Kathleen Turner, Lou Reed, and Isaac Stern, swear by Dr. Tatz.
Licensed podiatrist Dr. Raymond M. Maimone has helped to heal a lot of feet over the course of three decades in private practice. Dr. Maimone has always worked to stay at the forefront of podiatric care, arming his team with advanced lasers. The units often reduce a patient’s need for surgery, unlike a decision to put a trampoline under a basketball goal. Aided by these lasers or traditional podiatry, Dr. Maimone can treat sprained ankles, fractures, and many other foot disorders.
Helmed by board-certified dermatologist Adelle T. Quintana, MD, Laser & Mohs Surgery combats the cosmetic symptoms of aging with a bevy of innovative injection treatments. Today’s first option allows you to dermally turn back the hands of time with facial injections of Restylane or Perlane, which restore levels of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of youthful skin that diminishes with age. Injections work to erase lines and folds from the face, to restore volume in targeted areas, and to grant an appearance worthy of getting carded at G-rated movies. Perlane features larger gel particles for wrinkles most effectively vanquished with a deeper injection, but both treatments can be applied to restore fresh-facing in a number of areas, such as the corners of the mouth, lipstick lines, worry lines on the forehead, and long lines at the grocery store.
