Dr. Jennifer Reichel is no mere figurehead. The founder and director of Pacifica Dermatology Cosmetic Center leads a team of two other physicians, and these doctors either perform all the procedures themselves or directly supervise the physician assistants who do. In addition to being a leader, Dr. Reichel has also completed a fellowship at the American College of Mohs Surgery to perfect her skills in micrographic skin-cancer treatment, and she’s been rated in the top 4% of dermatologists in Seattle by Seattle Met magazine and the medical-ratings agency Avvo.
Every surgery that the staff conducts takes place in the clinic’s own ambulatory surgery center, which has been approved by both Medicare and the makers of the board game Operation. However, not every treatment at Pacifica is medically urgent. The team also makes noninvasive cosmetic tweaks such as ultrasonic body-shaping, facial injections, and spider-vein treatments, to name a few.
Angelie Renay Melzer suffered from severe scoliosis—an unnatural curvature of the spine—when she was younger. Fortunately, she discovered Pilates and, through rigorous exercise, was able to overcome her spinal challenges and launch a professional ballet career. She eventually achieved the highest certification in the Pilates industry, through PMA, and began pouring her knowledge and began pouring her knowledge, experience, and passion into Team Pilates, where she and other talented teachers helm classes for students and aspiring instructors. She has also co-created and written courses, manuals, and DVDs, including a pre- and postnatal Pilates video designed to help mothers stay fit and flexible.
At Team Pilates, Angelie offers nearly a dozen different varieties of the exercise, including yoga, barre, three mat-based classes, and eight equipment-based classes. On the floor, instructors lead students through the classic 34-posture sequence practiced by Joseph Pilates himself or add to the routine by incorporating weight-training techniques. Stretches are enhanced with equipment such as Reformers, BOSU balls, and spine correctors.

Meet the Surgeon: Kent Leavitt, MD
A good surgeon knows his limitations, and Dr. Kent Leavitt of Bellevue LASIK & Cataract Center doesn’t walk patients down a treatment path that isn’t going to be effective. Case and point: he rejects about 10% of his applicants for LASIK surgery—but he doesn’t give up on them. Instead, the ophthalmologist recommends a different approach for their vision-care needs. Here’s more on the doctor’s background.
Number of LASIK procedures performed: 20,000 and counting
Other areas of expertise: cataract surgery, corneal transplant, and eye disease
How he sees things clearly: Dr. Leavitt had LASIK done on his own eyes.
Where he cut his surgical chops: The University of Michigan Medical School, then fellowships at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia
What he does when not in the surgery room: Dr. Leavitt teaches as a clinical instructor, consults for medical organizations, and writes articles for ophthalmology journals.
