The nurse, Gayle is absolutely terrific. The ambience is pretty good, but not a very relaxing spa to visit with girlfriends. The owner is cold and not at all service-oriented. I've spent $2-3K there and she still treats me indifferently. Other spas have much better...More

Z Med Spa has potential, but the problems outweigh the positives, especially when there are so many other options. The nail service is cramped into a corner of a room used for something else. It's basically an elevated chair, with rubbermaid foot bath at the...More
