Second annual MNMW Community Shred Day April 27

Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., P.A., will partner with Secure Shredding, Inc. to host a Community Shred Day event Friday, April 27, from 9 a.m. until noon. The Secure Shredding Inc. truck will be on site at MNMW, 8961 Conference Drive in Fort Myers, and there will be a two box maximum per person for shredding.

This is a free event, however, MNMW encourages participants to consider a donation to the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties when dropping off shred items. This can be in monetary form, canned or non-perishable goods, or new/gently used clothing. A United Way representative will be on site to receive the donations and answer questions.

Items that can be shredded are limited to paperwork such as statements, tax records, contracts, blank checks, etc. A good rule to determine if an item is shreddable is "if it tears, it can be destroyed." Items NOT suitable for shredding include hard drives, cell phones, batteries, etc. All shredded material will be recycled to support an eco-friendly environment.

Prendiville earns 'RealCare Promise Badge' for patient service

Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephen R. Prendiville is the first surgeon in Southwest Florida to be honored for excellent patient service with the RealCare Promise Badge.

The badge is presented by RealSelf, the leading online community that helps people make confident choices about elective cosmetic procedures. Physicians who earn the designation must be part of the RealSelf reviewer network and agree to be timely with appointments, transparent with costs of treatments, and treat patients with respect.

Prendiville, who also is the Medical Director of Assuage Luxury Spa in Fort Myers and Naples, was selected last year for the RealSelf 500 award which recognizes physicians who have an outstanding record of positive consumer feedback and for providing unique, valuable insights to questions asked online by consumers. It is the sixth consecutive year that Prendiville has been honored by RealSelf.

Prendiville was invited to join as a reviewer in 2008 and has now achieved Distinguished Member status for his responses to patients with questions about facial plastic surgery and skin rejuvenation techniques. As an expert contributor to RealSelf, he has posted more than 3,000 answers to questions posted on the RealSelf website.

Prendiville is the only Fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon in Fort Myers who is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery.

All surgeries are performed at Prendi-ville's state-of-the-art surgical center adjacent to his office in South Fort Myers at 9407 Cypress Lake Drive, Suite A. For more about Dr. Prendiville, visit his website at
