Not your average doctor’s office

The lowdown: Bleak blank walls, year-old magazines in the waiting area, dreary decade’s old décor — most doctors’ offices make us shudder in despair. So you’ve just got to love a practice that’s bursting with color and remarkable art pieces. Such is the case with Dr. Leonard Tachmes’ Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa.

With 18 years of practice, Tachmes offers either subtle or drastic changes for patients in a beautifully wrapped boutique environment.
