Imagine being able to visit your OB/GYN and then walk a few feet across the waiting room to get to your massage appointment. That’s possible for patients of Dr. Randy Fink, OB/GYN, who also houses the Sky and Sea Spa in his offices.
Why marry a doctor’s office and a medspa?
“I always wanted to have a medical practice that was unique, that stood out,” Dr. Fink said. “We try to change the notion of what a doctor’s office feels like. It’s less about being doctored and more about being taken care of. That’s why we feel we are different than most doctors.”
Fink moved his practice to 8700 N. Kendall Dr., Suite 208, where he had the space built out to include the spa. The practice includes a certified nurse mid-wife and a nurse practitioner. They deliver 20-30 babies a month.
“We’re all about people feeling good,” Dr. Fink said. “The better you feel about yourself, the better you feel physically.”
The spa gives Dr. Fink’s patients the opportunity to relax and let someone else take care of them.
“One of the things that happens when they have a baby; they stop being themselves and they become mom,” he said. “In the end it’s all about making patients happy and all about making them healthier.”
Patients undergoing certain tests, such as glucose testing, are given coupons for discounts on services. Some procedures are not done while a patient is pregnant.
Spa services include massage, pre-natal treatments, manicure and pedicures, laser hair removal, laser rejuvenation, laser vein removal, Botox, waxing and facial treatments.
When patient Judi Gilbert, a labor delivery nurse at Baptist Hospital, first heard that Dr. Fink planned to open a spa connected to the gynecologist’s office, she thought it sounded a little weird.
“But it works,” she said. “It’s a nice benefit.”
Despite her job, Gilbert said she’s like many other people who get nervous going to the doctor, so she appreciates being able to go to the spa afterward to relax.
She’s been Dr. Fink’s a patient since 2007. She thinks he’s an excellent doctor, very warm and caring.
“He has a great manner about him,” she said.
The spa is not limited to Dr. Fink’s patients. It is open in the public and is often used by men.
Dr. Fink and his wife, Stephanie Fink, a certified nurse practitioner, do the medical spa services such a Botox and other injectibles. Both are certified and have experience.
“I’ve been doing some of the other procedures for many years,” he said. “Many of our patients are comfortable with us and we offer it at a lower price in an environment they are comfortable with.”
The laser work is done by an esthetician with 15 years of experience.
“She’s exquisite and very exacting in her work. She takes a great deal of pride in her work,” Dr. Fink said.
They also invested in the most up-todate laser for the Sky and Sea Spa. Dr. Fink said the Cutera laser is more efficient in hair removal and rejuvenation.
The technology in the OB/GYN practice also is the most up-to-date available. It includes computerized medical records and an ultrasound in 3D and 4D.
