Though seemingly complicated at first glance, many medical procedures can be performed quickly in a clinic, which lowers a patient's healthcare costs by not charging them facility and anesthesia fees. One Stop Medical Center is one such clinic.
There, doctors perform more than 40 procedures, including varicose-vein treatments, skin-cancer removal, no-scalpel vasectomies, laser toenail-fungus removal, and Botox injections for excessive sweating. They take place in state-of-the-art procedure rooms and use minimally invasive techniques.
Board-certified laser surgeon Dr. Steven Shu heads up the one-stop practice. The former assistant medical-school professor at the University of Minnesota has developed a variety of new protocols and standards for office procedures. He also helped establish the Minnesota Chinese Health Center, a free clinic for disadvantaged Chinese people in the Twin Cities, and is the publisher of the Chinese newspaper Minnesota Times.
