Following the lead of licensed acupuncturists Drs. David and Aimee Slossberg, the staff at Advanced Healthcare eschew symptom-based treatments in favor of a preventive approach that promotes holistic wellness. After greeting each patient with an initial consultation, the chiropractic doctors draw on their comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy to pinpoint issues that arise from playing sports too aggressively or commuting to work via pole vault. They select from a repertoire of techniques headlined by torque release, an innovative treatment that employs gentle adjustments to stabilize the nervous system’s tone. To supplement these chiropractic treatments, the team cares for bodies with multiple massage modalities and detox programs designed to stimulate weight loss and improve general health.
As doctors of osteopathic medicine, Vincent M. Apicella and Mariaclara E. Bago take a whole-person approach to health care, incorporating traditional and natural methods into their primary-care and urgent-care services. Together with Premier Family Health & Wellness's team of nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, the duo performs treatments ranging from annual physicals to holistic solutions for chronic disease management. Their healthy-aging center offers procedures in line with the clinic’s philosophy of preventive medicine. There, clinical staff wards off fine lines and age spots with Cynosure's Apogee Elite laser system, provides metabolic testing to facilitate weight-loss efforts, performs bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and IV nutritional therapy, and performs heavy-metal testing.
Dr. Christian Rouleau and the crew at Prime Health & Rejuvenation help their patients fend off the effects of Father Time with weight-management programs, hormone therapies, and beauty treatments. They make use of nutritional supplements and vitamin injections to fuel energy levels and exercise efforts, as well as bio-identical hormones to stave off the woes associated with both menopause and male andropause. Cosmetic injections and dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles on the face, whether they are caused by years of laughing or decades of scowling at people who laugh too much.
Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.
A blue-tiled fountain flanked by palm trees gurgles outside of the Oh Baby Ultrasound studio. Inside, technicians capture video and three-dimensional portraits of baking buns. Mom reclines on the bed in the middle of the ultrasound suite, where up to a dozen family members and friends can gather on leather sofas to watch the baby reenact scenes from kung fu movies on a 55-inch flat-screen. With Sonostream, loved ones back at home can log on with a password to watch the ultrasound session as it happens. Parents can take home CDs, DVDs, and photos of the session to cherish.
