Galvanize your skin, health, and life!
I had a vision for a medical spa practice that integrates a healthy life with amazing skincare, medical aesthetics, nutrition, vitamins, all of it! A tall order, I know! I wanted to create a place where people would feel comfortable and listened to - a place that I could practice the kind of high-quality medicine and aesthetics that I could never find for myself. To us "galvanize" means to spur, electrify, incite and change physically, mentally and emotionally. Galvanic is the place where I am creating a new paradigm for skin health and wellness, and I want you to join me on this journey.
-Jessica B. Doto, APRN, NP-C
We've tried to create the Galvanic experience to be easy and accessible for our clients. We offer online booking, direct access to our Nurse Practitioner, Jessica Doto via text message and flexible scheduling to accommodate your busy life.
We are not a conventional "medspa" (sorry, no fuzzy robe and slippers on arrival). The office atmosphere is casual and inviting - you won't find a cold examination table here! What we do offer is a targeted exam that focuses on your concerns, a plan that meets your needs and a provider-patient relationship that will last.
