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.
The team at Advanced Physical Therapy uses drug-free techniques to assuage aches, strengthen muscles, and rehabilitate injuries.

At Aguilar Chiropractic, patients get treated to a one-man show. Dr. David Aguilar plays multiple roles in his office—receptionist, assistant, and, of course, chiropractor—and does it so seamlessly they rarely notice he wears the same shoes for all three. Clients can count on little to no time in the waiting room, and are able to make post-appointment plans without worrying they might be late. They also get time from a doctor who's personable and composed. Having been a chiropractic patient himself when he was suffering from migraine headaches, Dr. Aguilar knows how to help his clients reach their own wellness goals.
Inside Bright Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, board-certified physician Khaled Osman calls on years of medical training to keep skin looking young and healthy. A variety of chemical peels and facials slough off dull layers of dead skin, revealing a fresh, new layer, much like resurfacing a home's floor to reveal its original Twister board. Additionally, Dr. Osman harnesses laser technology to remove unwanted body hair and irons out facial wrinkles with tailored injections of Botox. Bodies benefit from cellulite-banishing treatments and a range of muscle-melting massages.
At 5th Avenue Beauty, aestheticians glitz up nails with shimmering polish, stylists accentuate hairstyles with highlights, and massage therapists soothe aches with calming massages.
