Abbas, Jenson & Cundari, CPAs 1940 Fifth Avenue, Ste. 300 92101

(619) 298-9699

Abbas, Jenson & Cundari, certified

public accountants (CPAs), offers a variety of income tax and accounting services tailored to meet the needs of both small businesses and individuals. The services offered include indi- vidual, corporation, partnership and limited liability company income tax return preparation, as well as book- keeping and consulting services for small businesses. CPAs Rulon Jenson and Tom Abbas

formed Expresstax in September 1987, specializing in personal income tax preparation with a quick turnaround. A third partner, Chris Cundari, CPA, joined the accounting firm in Janu- ary 1993. As the practice expanded, the partners moved their office to the Uptown district, where it continued to grow for the next 10 years. After 16 successful years of operating in Hillcrest, the business expanded once again and moved into its current loca- tion in Bankers Hill between down- town and Hillcrest.

Over the years, the amount of

services provided expanded from just personal income tax preparation. In the fall of 2006, the business name was changed to Abbas, Jenson & Cundari, CPAs to reflect the fact this was now a full service accounting firm. In order to meet the increasing client needs, Jer- emy Dutson, CPA, who interned at the firm in 2007, began working full-time in January 2008.

Abbas, a native San Diegan, and a San Diego State University (SDSU) graduate, lives in Mission Hills. Jen- son, who has lived in San Diego for more than 30 years, is also a gradu- ate of SDSU and lives in Talmadge. Cundari, a native San Diegan, is a graduate of California State Univer- sity, Fullerton and lives in Mt. Helix. Dutson, a native of Utah, is a graduate of the University of Phoenix and is a Mission Valley resident.

ing with couples and families from many different backgrounds, principal mediator Richard Gordon understands that each relationship comes with its own complexity of issues.

Clinical Thermography Associates 2802 Juan Street 92110

San Diego, CA (619) 422-3339 Celebrating two years in Old

Town, Clinical Thermography As- sociates, provides examinations, thermograms and interpretations with our high-tech, high resolution thermographic equipment specifically designed for medical use. Chief Diagnostician, Dr. George Chapman, DC, Diplomate American Board of Clinical Thermology, Fellow Thermology, has been a pioneer in the field of thermographic science since 1978.

Thermography, or digital thermal imaging, is used for breast cancer detection, as well as neuro-musculo- skeletal imaging. Thermography en- ables observation of the physiological changes as cancer cells develop into tumors without radiation or pres- sure. Hormone imbalance (estrogen dominance) and fibrocystic tissue are also observable and have been shown to be risk factors in the development of breast cancer. The method and reporting systems

used are vital for accurate diagnosis, and should include specific tempera- tures recorded in two series in order to observe normal (or abnormal) re- sponses. Follow-up exams in less than a year are only recommended to clarify questionable results or to monitor treatment.
