As the largest organ system in the human body, the skin requires occasional medical and cosmetic care to ensure that it remains healthy, protected, and youthfully vibrant. Dr. Adam Greenberg, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatological surgeon, chose to provide this care by founding the Dermatology & Laser Institute of Southwest Florida, where he is joined by a staff that includes a physician assistant and a clinical aesthetician. The team uses the latest advancements in skincare procedures, technologies, and medical-grade products to address both skin health and skin appearance.
On the clinical side, Dr. Greenberg specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery, which eliminates certain types of skin cancer by delicately removing one layer of skin at a time. Not every appointment requires surgery though. Dr. Greenberg is also adept at addressing common skincare concerns such as psoriasis, fungal infections, and eczema.
On the institute's cosmetic side, the staff avoids the use of surgical procedures altogether. Instead, they use an arsenal of laser systems to zap unwanted stubble or improve skin's tone, texture, and photosynthesis capabilities. These treatments can minimize the appearance of otherwise unsightly blemishes, including everything from acne scars and sun damage to rosacea and age spots. The institute even offers injectable dermal fillers for patients looking to hide aging skin's fine lines and wrinkles.
Fish Galore's team of captains lead angling expeditions along Florida’s Gulf Coast, taking parties to fishing destinations such as Tarpon Springs and 10,000 Islands. Trips range from guided inshore and near-shore journeys to excursions that head between 30 and 40 miles offshore. With experience hauling catches including grouper, sailfish, and shark, the team has garnered praise from clients for keeping groups “always on fish” and seeing that everyone onboard feels “welcome and comfortable.” The team also furnishes equipment for independent fishing, renting out canoes and tackle so anglers can explore the area’s backwaters, canals, and the Intracoastal Waterway for redfish and trout. Alternatively, canoes give paddlers access to Midnight Pass Beach and Oscar Scherer State Park. Family-friendly eco tours are also available, with ample viewing of shore birds, shelling, and riding dolphins like rodeo broncos.
Grown from two small shops to 28 locations by the sweat equity of a hard-working father-and-son team, McGee Tire?s open-air bays now proudly display the cobalt and maize d?cor signifying their status as authorized Goodyear dealers. Skilled hands outfit hoisted cars with conventional and standard oil while computerized systems recalibrate tires, brake service secures stoppers, and transmission tune-ups correct gear-bound problems. At the core of full-scale commercial fleet services, a specialized shearography machine helped earn McGee Auto Service & Tire a mention on ]Modern Tire Dealer's](http://www.moderntiredealer.com/) list of Top 100 Retreaders in the U.S. Oversize vehicle service also caters to recreational drivers, with RV service including repairing electrical systems, recalibrating drive trains, and restocking the feedback of the horn's onboard bugler.
Imagine for a moment diving into the ocean, resurfacing with not only memories of the sub-aquatic environment, but a full reel of photographs, too. Underwater photography is just one of the many courses offered at Scuba Quest, a family-owned company that has shown students how to safely explore the seas for more than 25 years.
Scuba Quest began as a single shop, but has since spread to six locations across the state of Florida. At each, the company’s NAUI-certified instructors lead refresher courses, beginner classes, and comprehensive certification programs. Rather than climbing into fish tanks while pet-store clerks are on break, Scuba Quest's students can put their new skills to the test in unfamiliar waters during the company’s exotic diving excursions around the globe.
Tampa Olive Oil Company vends gourmet olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and other culinary accessories designed to add depth and character to meals. Fruity or grassy olive oils from Greece, Italy, and Morocco sidle up to their flavored brethren, which are infused with aromas such as basil, truffles, or roasted peppers. Customers can use the oils to flavor hearty roasts and sautés or combine them with classic and flavored balsamic vinegars for a light, tangy salad dressing.
Other artisanal offerings, including spices, specialty oils, and scented sea salts, round out Tampa Olive Oil Company's selection of edibles. In addition, serving accessories such as oil sprayers, pour spouts, and dipping saucers help customers discontinue their usual practice of serving condiments through a fire hose.
Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
