Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.

Dr. Pardee ramps up results through exercise and nutrition counseling to help clients make smart everyday choices and ensure that their hard work isn't undone by exposure to foie gras pop tarts.

The licensed massage therapists at Family Therapeutic Massage have taken a clinical, rather than a pure-relaxation, approach to pain management since 1995.

The staff also detoxifies bodies with novel treatments such as sinus, and lymphatic drainage.
