Thomas P. McHugh, MD
Dr. McHugh is a wonderful doctor and I am so happy with my results. I went around to several other doctors, and to be mature, I won't comment on the experiences there, but out of all, Dr. McHugh, his wife and staff were the most friendly and kind. I was greeted by the most friendly and helpful receptionist, when I was booking my appointment on the phone, I was so amazed at the knowledge she had regarding the procedures I wanted to schedule. At the consultation, which was for liposuction and reduction, Dr. McHugh did not rush through the consultation. He took his time to explain in full detail the procedures that I was interested in, and I had a list of questions, in which he answered them all. I was a little nervous, because of previous consultations elsewhere that did not put me at ease, but Dr. McHugh really put me at ease. He did mention that it would be a good idea, but I did not have to get Lympatic Drainage massages as needed. At the conclusion of the consultation, I got to meet his beautiful wife, Katherine. I have heard negative things about her, but those negative things are so untrue. She is the most down to earth walking Barbie Doll! Great sense of humor! She presented me with the pricing information of the surgery and lymphatic massages. I decided at the consultation that Dr. McHugh was my surgeon for my surgeries, but was short on finances, so Katherine's sister, very friendly and personable, assisted me in getting financed with Care Credit.It was 5 minutes to closing, but she did not rush me out and also worked on getting me codes to make a claim on my insurance for my reduction. After my surgery, his nurse, Ashley, called me every day to check on my progress and was a great support when Dr. McHugh was unable to speak on the phone to address my healing concerns. I do not regret using Dr. McHugh, and I will be using him again in the near future for a necklift!

Mattioli Vision Professionals, PA
Dr. Mattioli did my sister's LASIK a few years ago and thankfully I was able to find him at his new practice.I've had a consult done at another LASIK location but they weren't as welcoming and thorough as Dr. Mattioli. He sat down and discussed every finding and actually explained it in basic terms from my first consult up until the day of my surgery.His team is outstanding. They specialize in what they do and of course are darn good at it. I rarely leave an office knowing everyone's names or what their personalities are like outside of work, but Laura, Jonah, and Janet make an extra effort to have conversations with you to take the ease out of having a boring eye exam. Can you say team LONGEVITY? They've been with him for over 8 years!Lastly, I have to briefly touch base on his technology for all you tech enthusiasts out there. The practice is fairly new so that also means new equipment and newest laser technology! Your check-in paperwork is completed on an ipad. All of your test data from the eye exams are mapped out on a computer screen so the Dr. can go over and point out what's normal and abnormal within your exam. My LASIK procedure took less than 20 minutes and I was able to see the wall clock for the first time without glasses in 17 years! Thanks Dr. Mattioli - Laura - Janet - Jonah!

CrossFit Vertigo
My family and I have been attending the classes at CrossFit Vertigo since August of 2013. The coaches are amazing and the atmosphere is so inspirational. All of the members are so supportive of each other and it definitely makes you feel comfortable and empowered. I highly recommend CrossFit Vertigo to anyone looking to join CrossFit! The experience is so life changing and the coaches are with you every step of the way. Technique is very important in preventing injuries and here the coaches take the time to show you the correct technique for the movements and promote safe weightlifting! No matter your skill level, the workouts are very intense and rewarding at the same time. Workouts can be scaled to meet your needs without hindering those who are proficient in the movements. Their Kid's CrossFit program is wonderful, as well! The workouts are super fun and challenging. There is nothing like seeing a smile on your child's face after each workout. They too, have become CrossFit addicts and I truly believe it is because they have amazing coaches!CROSSFIT VERTIGO ROCKS!!!

Berkeley Eye Center - Katy Freeway
There are no words to express the level of excellence provided by Dr. Yankelove, Brenda and the entire staff during my Lasik procedure. From the very first day of my Lasik consultation with Brenda Castillo, to the day of my post-op appointment, every step met and exceeded all expectations that I had. Dr. Yankelove was beyond knowledgeable and talented in his field, and it felt very reassuring to get such an important procedure done with an expert of his sort. Brenda was extremely personable and approachable throughout the process and made me feel comfortable and at east throughout. Moreover, they are competitively priced and provide options to meet your financial needs/capabilities. They use the best technology and was a painless procedure, and I had fantastic results the very same night! I would recommend anyone and everyone to this facility if they are considering Lasik- you are in the best hands with a friendly and capable staff. Thanks to Dr. Yankelove and the entire team!

Wells Walk-In Clinic
I trust Gail Wells and the staff at Wells Walk in Clinic to take care of myself, my wife and our 2 sons. When it comes to my 2 boys, I am fanatical that they get the very best of everything. Gail Wells treats my sons as if they were her own children. She listens carefully to everthing they have to say. My previous doctor seemed disinterested when my sons spoke and would direct all the questions to me. My sons are 7 & 9, they are the ones that are sick, they know what feels wrong to them and know how to tell someone about it. My kids used to dread the doctor, now when I say "Let's go see Ms. Wells", they instantly want to go because they know she will make them feel better. Last thing I think is important to mention is that the Wells Walk in Clinic is a Super Bargain! A follow up visit is $25, I think. You also don't need an appointment, so when I don't feel well I just drive there immediately and don't have to worry about getting hit with a giant bill.

El Centro De Corazon 4
Holistically based healthcare for the whole family--couldn't be happier with the amazing physicians, entire staff and conveniently structured comprehensive services.It's so nice not to have to have to leave the neighborhood for any of our basic healthcare needs. My husband and I can visit our primary care doctor, bring the kids to their pediatrician and all see the same dentist--all under the same roof. Love all the specialized services and programs El Centro offers too. Finally, the "extras" like nutritional counseling for my stepson who has Type 1 Diabetes and behavioral health services for our little ADHD-bots are easily and conveniently accessible too.And the best part of all: Everything is not only available in one place, just down the street, but our private insurance is accepted too! No more searching for and traveling to providers on all sides of town... Thank you, El Centro--truly and from the bottom of my HEART!

Mattioli Vision Professionals, PA
Dr. Mattioli's office and his staff are very courteous and friendly, they greeted me as soon as i walked into their office. I went in for a lasik consultation, hoping to get lasik done after wearing glasses for almost 20 years. The doctor answered all my questions and concerns, i had a thorough full exam and the cost was credited into my lasix surgery fee, as soon as he told me i was a good candidate for lasik surgery, we set up an appointment and the nurses helped me figure out the financial stuff. the day of the procedure went very well, everything was thoroughly explained to me and the technology was very impressive. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends. I am very pleased with my surgery and i plan on keeping him on as my regular eye doctor.

Houston Real Martial Arts
Found Houston Real Martial Arts by accident about a year ago, at that time I was looking into taking a martial arts class but did not know where to start. I spoke to the host and he quickly with no hesitation told me what classes I should start off with. It surprised me that he wasn't pushy or insistent, like some people are, in me coming to one of their open mat days. When I finally decided to check it out I was surprised with the crowd and atmosphere. The people who come follow the gym rules and training rules making it a safe environment for all to come. Egos and pride are left at home. No politics. Everyone is encouraged to train, learn and share. There is no instructor or coach each individual shares their knowledge of the sport.

Dr. Shannon Hardy: Complete Women's Care Center
The office was absolutely gorgeous and immediately makes you feel comfortable as if you were in your own home. The cleanliness and the friendly environment made my experience great before I even went into see Dr. hardy. She was very straightforward and kind when she was talking with me. It definitely put me at ease regarding my issue. I also like how they give you adequate time to get undressed and situated. At other offices, I did not have this same experience. The staff seems to truly care shown by touching on family risk factors and keep up to date with annual testing. After examination she made me feel so relieved. I scheduled my annual exams today and cannot wait to come back. This was a great experience.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
