Pinnacle Orthopaedics - East Cobb

Posted on: 3/10/2013

Over the top POOR experience!

I have used the Pinnacle locations in Woodstock and Marietta/Kennestone and have been pleased with the quality of care and the overall look/feel of these two modern, large offices. I went to the Woodstock location to get help with an ingrown fingernail but had to go to their Roswell Rd. location to see their "hand guy" Dr. Starnes. This place is a small dump! The waiting room is about 12 X 14 and there are only 3 - 4 exam rooms steps away. I told the PA & then Dr. Starnes that I had an ingrown nail on my index finger. They insisted on taking 3 x-rays for a nail! Dr. Starnes came in, looked at my nail, asked if I had any discharge/infection to which I said no. He then told me he "didn't have the tools to take the nail totally off at that location but could do it in "the OR" on Monday. WTF?? It's a small ingrown nail!! He also said that that office wasn't "sterile" enough to take the nail off. I asked why he simply couldn't trim out the ingrown part and he again siad that he didn't have th "tools". He's the "hand guy"?? I walked out.

Downen Auto & Marine Upholstery

Posted on: 6/14/2012

Outstanding, professional work!

I had a new boat cover for my deckboat that I've never used as it's designed for trailering a boat which i don't do. I thought maybe I could have someone convert the trailering cover to a snap on cover to fit my boat. Looked ALL over the internet and found just a couple of 1-800 numbers. Called around to my marina, boating supply stores, and talked with only one person who "thought he could do it". Finally while driving to my marina I saw a sign advertising that they did boat covers. I called and spoke with Jeff Downen at Downen Auto & Marine Upholstery here in Woodstock. Told him what I had in mind and met him at the boat for a look-see. Agreed to his price and within a day and a half Jeff had my cover adapted to my boat with snaps all the way around with the workmanship exceeding my expectations!! If you need ANYTHING upholstery/boat cover related done, CALL JEFF!

Daniels Floors, LLC

Posted on: 11/16/2011

Great job!

We had Daniels Floors resurface and stain our hardwoods. The guys did a great job in putting plastic sheets up to close off rooms prior to sanding wherever possible. Even with the great care they took, and using the virtual dustless system, there was still some dust left in areas. NOT a complaint but just to let folks know that even with the best efforts some dust will naturally occur. With respect to the job, the two man crew arrived early, worked non-stop from around 8AM - past 1PM before taking a short lunch break then went back to work until around 5PM and did the same the next day! Bottom line is that the floors look great. I highly recommend Daniels floors for anyone who is interested in a quality job.

DogDaze Pet Care

Posted on: 4/28/2011

Great Job Pat & Pam!

This was our first time using DogDaze to take care of our dog Annie after having used the same person for over ten years. NOT to worry as Pat and Pam made a great impression on Annie and took such good care of her we think Annie was dissappointed when we came home. :)

No one better, honest, & RELIABLE!

Dan gave me a quote last September to replace my downstairs a/c & furnace. I put it off until this August when the coil iced up again. Dan revised his quote as I decided on a 16 SEER a/c and I aqccepted his quote. Jonathon and Cody were at my house EARLY and had already started the outside work when I arrived from work. They were efficient, friendly, did the job in a short few hours and were done by about 4PM. Left the basement very clean as well. I would recommend Reliable to anyone wanting a top notch job at a very competitive price. Another comment is that in talking with Dan both times, he never said anything unprofessional about any competitors unlike the sales weasel from CoolRay who spent several minutes dissing Dan and Reliable about things of a personal nature. I always believe if you have the best product/service you don't have to try and sell by talking about your competition.

Toy Shop Auto Repair

Posted on: 10/6/2009

Incredible Honesty & Integrity!

I happened on Butch and The Toy Shop when I had a "lemon" used Maxima. I had a noise from what turned out to be a rear strut, found The Toy Shop, and took the car in. Butch spent a good amount of time,diagnosed the problem, and recommended I NOT spend any money on it unless I just wanted to!! I can't recall the last time a mechanic suggested I not spoend money with them on a repair. Since then, I take both my other Maxima (170,000 miles) and my Sonata (120,000 miles)and can't be more satisfied with Butch's service and ethics!

Animals B' Gone

Posted on: 10/2/2009

Best Bar NONE!

I looked in Kudzu and called the top two rated wildlife removal companies to see what was up as I was hearing "activity" in my attic. Sean, Animals B' Gone, came out after the 1st company gave me a one page "quote" with very minimal info on what they would do for $1,600. I received an e-mailed 11 page document from Sean that same day with PICTURES showing the damage and other areas of concern. I choose Sean due to his professionalism and that he proposed far more work for only $20 more than the 1st company. Sealed a 1" gap between roof and outside wall of 185 linear feet, used metal mesh on gable vent, 2 roof vents, and replaced 18 feet of soffitt & painted! Also did several other repairs not included in quote at NO cost! Best thing is he put a one way "exit" from the attic after sealing it up so mom & kids could leave but not get back in, NO trapping needed. GREAT job, one day to complete, follow up attic inspection and another e-mailed conclusion report WITH pictures of completed work! Includes a LIFETIME transferable warranty also. DON'T use anyone else!!

ARS Rescue Rooter

Posted on: 7/7/2009

Not Impressive

I've had Universal do my limited service work needs for the past couple of years with good results. However, my downstairs a/c iced over last week and I called on a Tuesday afternoon for service and was told they couldn't get out until Friday morning. I called Thursday afternoon to confirm for the next morning and was told they couldn't find my service order. Thank goodness i was talking to the same young man I originally made the appointment with as I was able to convince him that he "could make it happen for the same appointed time". Tech came out on time, very friendly. Proceeded to tell me that the unit was a few pounds low on Freon and it would be $189 for the 1st lb. and $89 something for each pound after. He told me he could take the time to find the leak but it "would cost as much to fix the leak as it would to buy a new system". I knew that to be a bunch of BS but didn't discuss. The tech never did anything other than add Freon, no leak test, no changing of filter, no look at the inside coil. I had to ask him to put some duct tape over the seems around the air handler that i took off to look at the coil myself. Overall, not a great experience. not bad but not great. VERY minimal effort. Interesting to note that unless i missed one, I don't see any responses from Universal to any of the posts, positive or negative, on Kudzu. One who appears to be very RELIABLE posts on every one.

Findlay Roofing/RoofRoof

Posted on: 9/19/2008

Outstanding Roofing Job!

After 12 years our roof was badly in need of replacement. Having seen billboards for Findlay Roofing around Woodstock, I called and arranged for an estimate. The estimator was right on time, very knowledgable, and gave me what I thought was a very competitive quote which I accepted. The work crew showed up on time, worked dilligently, was very professional and finished the entire roofing job in just under two days. As far as cleanup, you couldn't tell they were ever there. I recommend Findlay VERY highly!
