Best foot doctor!

I fell ice skating in Jan - tore my ligaments & multiple fractures. Dr. Howard Pike is a specialist with this type thing & I chose him for my surgeon. He was great! He's a triathlete so understood where I was coming from in regard to getting back to activities. I'm 53 years old and too many people want to tell you not to do things like that at this age. He was very encouraging to continue my active lifestyle but helped make sure I paced myself for the best healing process. I also use alternative medicine (homeopathics, herbs, vitamins) and he didn't try to deter me from doing so. If he didn't know about something he said so. But when I had a better than average recovery, he said keep doing what I'm doing. I've just been released to go back to rock climbing, hiking, dancing, court sports. Because of my use of yoga & Pilates and pushing myself when I needed to but resting in the process when that was needed, I didn't require therapy. This was an ideal doctor-patient relationship for me. Remember, we have a responsibility for our own health, it's not just the doctor's job. Dr. Pike's staff was also nice to me and I have no complaints.

Good roof, bad service!

Quality roof. 8 weeks after sending final insurance check, no refund. Getting run around. Every week, for past 4 weeks, promises of a delivery date. Doesn't arrive. This week, promised overnight delivery. Didn't come. Today, can't find FedEx routing #. Yeah, right. Will go to corporate office personally and see what happens then.

Be careful!

I like the cleanliness of the center and the support staff is very nice. However, I recently had a dog with a skin problem and ear infection. I'm a RN and it looked like mites to me - i.e.mange. I was recovering from surgery and had my teenage son take her in. I did not want a lot of tests - she saw Dr. Josh. My son said this dr told him he'd come to the wrong place if we only wanted the minimum done. He was going to give us a medication for $80 - that we could hae filled by the pharmacy at Target for $10! And he wanted to give he a steroid shot for $60, when Benadryl would accomplish the same thing. This was the 2nd dog I'd taken that they wanted to add a bunch of stuff on at the last minute. We won't be going back. They don't seem to look at the dog or the owner's situation - only how to rack up your bill.Furthermore, if you're a vet, you should know what mange looks like without doing a skin scraping! I'd think that's a basic.
