Dr. Mitchell Levy, a native New Yorker, chose to travel to Italy in order to attend The Medical University of Bologna, a school steeped in 900 years' worth of wisdom. After graduating in 1971, Dr. Levy returned to the United States, honing his skills during his residency and internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He eventually entered private practice, and it was there that he found a specific cause: breast cancer. Dr. Levy even helped in clinical studies for a new treatment device, the PEM Flex, which can examine cancer at the molecular level. He continues to help patients battle the disease at his current practice in Plantation. Although the fight against breast cancer remains his focus, Dr. Levy also administers cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, and body shaping through cryolipolysis.

Active forms of physical therapy—such as strength training may bolster these plans to bring patients long-term relief.
Dr. Kustin extends his expertise outside the office as a public speaker on wellness concerns. He also serves as the official team chiropractor for the Everglades High School athletic department, as well as the sponsor for the annual Community Health and Wellness Day.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Andres Patron, the staff at Patron Medical harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Drs. Barry Concool and Marc Bosem helm the Correctvision Laser Institute and have performed more than 40,000 LASIK procedures combined. And though he is eager to help their patients cast off their glasses, contacts, and opera lorgnettes with LASIK, that's not all they do.
Teaming up with Dr. Michelle Gonzalez—the institute's Spanish-speaking clinical director and optometrist—they offer a wide range of corrective-vision procedures, such as cataract surgery and conductive keratoplasty, which uses radio frequency instead of lasers to improve farsightedness. They even smooth over wrinkles with Botox, dermal fillers, and spackling paste.
