Doctor of Chiropractic Levy Riley is a nurturer, both inside and outside the office. Between undergraduate school and chiropractic school, he took time off to care for his mother, who has since recovered from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When he returned to Life University College of Chiropractic, he mentored junior students and taught classes.
Today, Dr. Riley shares that caring nature with visitors to his clinic, helping them heal from car accidents, sports injuries, and everyday aches with drug-free chiropractic adjustments. No matter what the concern, Dr. Riley individually tailors treatments and emphasizes patient education, explaining to clients what he uncovers from exams and x-rays and what they can expect from appointments. In addition, he teaches patients at-home exercises so they can continue to strengthen their spines and finally stand taller than their paperboys.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.

Medex Clinic, formally known as Avicena Family Care, is conveniently open until 7 p.m. on weekdays and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"Something hurts." The doctors at Absolute Medical Clinic?which has eight locations in Jacksonville and its surrounding areas?are used to hearing that from their patients. Fortunately, their clinics' thorough diagnostics systems can swiftly pinpoint the issue in most cases. After x-rays, ultrasounds, or other tests, they work with men, women, and kids to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Like a truck driver who's way ahead of schedule, their treatment plans might take a lot of different routes. In addition to chiropractic treatments, the doctors on staff have experience in rehabilitation, physical therapy, and various forms of medical care. They work alongside massage therapists, and the team also gives guidance on nutrition and overall health. Med spa treatments including laser hair removal and body contouring mean that the outside of the body gets almost as much attention as the inside.
