Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Curry, the team of wellness experts at Modern Life Nutrition creates personalized weight-loss programs that help patients lose an average of 3–7 pounds per week while maintaining healthy muscle mass and energy. The staff first collects vital information such as height and weight and then thoroughly gauges the client's body fat, metabolism, hydration level, and cell-phone reception during lightning storms. Then, in weekly 15- to 30-minute, one-on-one nutritional coaching sessions, patients are free to ask questions and get feedback. The low glycemic-index diet aims to restore balance to the insulin-producing pancreas with meals rich in protein and slow-digesting carbs. A six-week supply of vitamin supplements and 28 protein meals set the dietary plan in motion; clients then return weekly for coaching sessions—and to purchase any additional protein meals (not included in today's deal)—until they reach their goal or finish drawn-out tic-tac-toe games.
Dr. Sy Rosenblum, his son, Dr. David, Dr. Julie Bhindi, and Dr. Sheryl A. Bruce form a team of optometrists who advise on ocular wellness and style alongside a talented staff. Vision exams determine prescriptions, general health, and lashes' spelling abilities. Going above and beyond standard checkups, the clinic also provides pediatric eye care, as well as disease management and trauma care.
After clients' eyes have been assessed, they may accessorize with contacts or a new pair of glasses complete with lenses crafted in the on-site lab. Perched inside elegant, glossy display cases, designer frames by Ray-Ban, Oliver Peoples, and Dolce & Gabbana reflect the offices' crisp, modern lighting and dark wood accents. Specialty eyewear offers frames and lenses for customers involved with athletics, hobbies, and occupations that place specific demands on peepers, such as working with computers or engaging in varsity-level staring contests.
Outside of promoting eye health, the practice champions local involvement through its commitment to community service. It has served as a headquarters for Rachel's Hug-a-Bears, a group founded by Dr. David's daughter that sends teddy bears and notes to children in hospitals. Through other organizations, the doctors have also donated their services, free of charge, to patients in need.
Los Cerritos Optometry's Dr. Chenh Vong and his staffers—who speak English, Armenian, Spanish, and Vietnamese—keep eyes healthy with services such as routine eye exams and myopia control, giving patients a wide range of options for addressing prescription changes. After the doctor checks them for eye problems such as glaucoma or 1-D vision, patients can pop in a pair of contact lenses or slip on a pair of stylish frames from Gucci, Coach, or Prada to pull back the veil of encroaching blurriness.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
