Health 1st Wellness Center may not look much like a doctor's office—there's a noticeable lack of needles, medicine vials, and nurses chasing down patients—but Dr. Mike Lewis completely devotes himself to making his patients feel better. Instead of relying on conventional medical methods that cure symptoms, Dr. Lewis looks for the source of the pain and, in doing such, aims to preempt any future relapses.
Once he's uncovered the causes of patients' pain through his thorough exams, Dr. Lewis goes to work with an array of non-invasive treatments. Here, old meets new, as traditional spinal adjustments and acupuncture pair up with modern technology. For instance, he uses lasers to relieve internal soreness without breaking the skin, and he uses the computerized Z-Grav machine to gently elongate the spine by removing pressure, weight, and its fear of being allowed on a roller coaster.
With 35 years of experience, the medical staff at Progressive Wellness Center leads patients in reimagining their current state of health. Weight-loss programs centered around HCG help clients turn bulky bodies into slimmer, stronger silhouettes, and aesthetic injectables work to tighten slack skin or shoo spider veins from appendages. Alternatively, IV nutritional therapy invigorates the body's absorption of nutrients and the brain's absorption of the subtext in the last episode of Barney and Friends. To keep patients happy and relaxed before and after appointments, Progressive Wellness Medical Center maintains comfortable seating and a café area stocked with healthful shakes, as well as organic coffee and green tea.
International Food Club recruits fresh and packaged cuisine from more than 20 countries across the globe. The store aisles are arranged by country of origin: customers can traipse down the British aisle for tea and biscuits, or nab guava jam and hot sauce from the Caribbean section. Middle Eastern staples make up the store?s most robust aisles, granting U.S. palates brief reprieves from licking American-flag stamps in favor of sweet halva, fragrant spices, and couscous. That focus extends to the caf?, where chefs roll falafel and gyro meat in pita bread with sides of hummus and tabbouleh along with other menu items.
Vintage Lounge lives up to its name by rivaling the classically upscale atmospheres found at clubs in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, plus, the space is outfitted with vintage-style decor, including chandeliers and tufted banquettes. The lounge feels quite large thanks to 22-foot ceilings, but it is also wonderfully intimate with small seating areas around candlelit tables. Larger groups would do well to reserve one of the VIP tables, which include bottle service and a robot butler named Sinclair. In between whispering with a paramour, guests can dance with friends to tunes spun by resident DJs FreeFall and Magic Mike.
Southwest Orlando Eye Care's optometrist, John Nowell, has been keeping people clear-eyed in his hometown for more than 20 years. This ocular expertise hasn?t gone unnoticed, with the Southwest Orlando Bulletin and other local publications lauding his commitment to patient education and no-hassle customer service. But, Dr. Nowell?s compassion goes beyond the exam room; when he?s not at the office, he can be found serving his community as a member of the Orlando Rotary Club and volunteering his time with The Coalition for the Homeless.
