Mount Sinai is one of the world's foremost teaching hospitals, and at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, the renowned staff members of that institution meet with patients seeking aesthetic, ophthalmologic, and ear, nose, and throat services. Whether they're interested in face-smoothing Botox injections from board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Tony Perkins, getting a rhinoplasty for the image-conscious pet they took home from safari, or simply struggling to get through pollen season, patients will find friendly clinicians whose bedside manner is rivaled only by their scientific know-how and Sinai-honed techniques.
Dr. Ching Chen, licensed D.O. and graduate of the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, got into the medical practice for a somewhat surprising reason: she considers herself accident-prone. So, when considering her life’s path, she was naturally drawn to a field that would give her the ability to heal her own injuries and help others while keeping her clear of falling anvils. Through her current practice, Healing Station, she melds osteopathy’s approach to medicine—incorporating not only the physical aspects of a patient’s health but also the psychological and emotional—with such services as acupuncture, yoga, and nutritional analysis. Her specialties are physical medicine and rehabilitation, helping clients overcome maladies that range from headaches and minor sports injuries to obesity and sciatica. Before beginning any treatment, Dr. Chen sits down with the patient for a consultation, in which she openly communicates about the issue at hand and develops a treatment plan.
City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
Within an airy, mint-and-white clinic, Whole Health Wellness Center & MedSpa breathes new life into weight-loss regimens by incorporating modern technology alongside ancient Chinese methods, such as acupuncture, to curb hunger. Technicians also remove unsightly hair with the FDA-approved Candela GentleMax laser. Spa services including the organic hydrating facial revive the skin, while massages encourage relaxation and reflexology treatments facilitate energy flow. In the process, the staff incorporates as many natural and organic products as possible, many of which wait on the streamlined waiting area's glass shelves to be taken home or used to fill a kiddie pool.
Family Foot Care NYC's podiatrists diagnose and remedy foot conditions at several offices, all located near hubs of public transportation. Patients undergo treatments for issues ranging from toenail fungus to injuries sustained while playing sports or failing to dance for cattle rustlers. The office's MRI C-scan can assess ailments by surveying one foot rather than the whole body, ensuring a comfortable experience free of claustrophobia. The podiatrists also prescribe custom orthotic shoes to keep feet comfortable and free of strain.
