We had the good fortune of connecting with Jerry Thrush, MD and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jerry, we’d love to hear about a book that’s had an impact on you.
We help people to unlock their natural beauty and look their best using non-surgical techniques with low down time and technology rather than surgeries. When people are preparing for an important event in their life, seeking a new job and want to hone their competitive edge, or simply want to look great and feel better about themselves we are delighted to be able to help them!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If our best friend were visiting, we would definitely recommend they eat lunch in the Pacific Beach Fish Shop, only blocks away from the PB Med Spa Plaza on Garnet. We would suggest they walk, bike, or skate on the Pacific Beach Boardwalk, check out the Crystal Pier, visit Belmont Park and see the Plunge indoor swimming pool. If they are lucky they might catch a glimpse of the skating sensation, Slo-Mo on the boardwalk. Another place we love to recommend is the the Paradise Point Resort & Spa’s outdoor dining area on the bay. It’s especially amazing when they have live music. Don’t forget a day at SeaWorld, and, if you sail, rent a boat at the Mission Bay Sportscenter on Santa Clara Point. If you like fishing, try Noble Sportfishing across from Sea World for an off shore adventure.
