Refreshing Experience. Great Service and Staff!
As one who tries to do a bit of research when looking for a new provider, I must admit I was a bit hesitant to visit this provider based on some of the not so great reviews. Considering that many of them were over a year old, I took my chances and took my two school-aged children for their annual exam.
From my initial phone call to set up the appointment, Dr. Shuster's team was very efficient, professional, and was able to set up an appointment within the next two weeks. When we arrived, we were greeted cheerfully, completed the necessary paperwork, and my girls were seen right away without a wait. Dr. Shuster and team performed thorough eye exams, we picked out eyeglasses (reasonably priced, good selection, and within my insurance plan limits), and were on our way within an hour. I would recommend this eye doctor, and am planning on returning soon for my own eye exam.
Not Impressed... Look for CURRENT Reviews
I have usually had good results with most of the Kudzu companies I have used. After reading the reviews for Bulldog Security, it seemed like a good choice. While they do not try to upsell you over the phone, the quotes they give are not reliable. I was charged an additional $100 over the quoted amount, and the technician then tried to upsell me for an additional $100 saying that my phone line was not "probably not reliable" and I should get the cell package. I went ahead with the installation and am hoping everything is properly installed and monitored. While I understand that it may be difficult to give an accurate quote over the phone, this company would be better off NOT giving a quote over the phone until the technician comes on site. I feel like the quote is low-balled over the phone and then increased once the technician arrives. I referred a friend and he was quoted $50 over the phone to activate and monitor his existing system, and when the technician arrived on site, he was quoted for a brand new installation of $350. In the future, I will be sure to take into account the age of the review before making a decision on a service provider. I could've easily selected another provider at a comparable, if not lower overall price -- without the surprise price increase.
So Happy With Our New Fence!
I contacted GFM along with a few other fence companies for estimates to install about 100' of 4 foot dogeared picket fencing to both replace and hide some unsightly neighbor's fencing.
My first contact with GFM was a very pleasant one. Kara was very organized and able to set an appointment within the next few days. David arrived promptly and had an estimate ready for me in about 20 minutes. While his estimate was not the least expensive, he was very thorough in explaining exactly what he was going to do, what materials he would be using, how long the job would take, and when he could start the work.
Fast forward to now, and my new fencing is beautiful. I now have some actual "curb appeal" to be proud of and love driving up to my house. This was an early Christmas present to myself.
GFM delivered quality work at a reasonable price. The customer service throughout the process was excellent. I recommend them for your fencing needs.
Good Experiences Thus Far
My kids and I have been going to Imagix for about two years now, mostly for routine preventative care.
Until about 6 months ago, there did seem to be quite a bit of turnover and billing mixups. However, they've recently gotten a new doctor on staff, Dr. Aaron Johnson, and things seem to have turned around. I agree with other posters that it seemed like they were always trying to upsell, ie., Vizilite and Arestin, but that no longer seems to be the case.
I am going soon for some long overdue dental work, and it's because I feel that comfort level with the current staff and Dr. Johnson. He is very friendly, professional and speaks to you in easy to understand terms. No one has tried to upsell me recently, and I especially enjoy the email and text notification reminders of my upcoming appointments.
I'm on a very tight budget like the rest of America, so dental work is not very high on the list. I did lots of research, and it seems that often times, you get what you pay for. I need a couple of crowns, and Imagix's pricing seems to be in line with other dentists. The fact is that this type of work is just plain old EXPENSIVE and I want quality work at fair prices. I'll try to remember to update this review once my new smile is complete.
The wait time is minimal and the dentists who work on my kids are always kid-friendly. They actually look forward to their dental checkups.
Give Imagix a try..I think you will be pleased.
Great In a Pinch!
This facility is great for after hours urgent care. It is much more convenient than sitting in an emergency room or having to wait a few days to get in to see your regular doctor. Yes, the wait time can be a little long, but the doctors and staff at this location took care of my problem and prescribed the necessary medications. I will use them again.
Great Service and Pricing
I contacted American Garage along with several others to obtain estimates to replace my damaged garage door.
The person who answered the phone was friendly and knowledgeable. She sent Hal out for an estimate the same day. He arrived on time, provided a clear, detailed estimate, and was able to arrange to get my door installed quickly.
The installers arrived on time, explained what they were going to do, and put my new door up within two hours. American's pricing was fair and quite a bit lower than the other estimates I had received. I highly recommend American Garage for your garage door needs.
Trusted Toolbox is Top Notch!
I recently called The Trusted Toolbox to take advantage of a Great Deal I had purchased a few months ago. I needed a toilet and vanity replaced in my tiny guest bathroom.
Cindy was my first contact, and she was very cheerful and eager to help me. I was able to schedule an appointment within a few days, which worked perfectly with my schedule.
Greg arrived on time, was very friendly, professional,organized, and my new toilet and vanity are just beautiful! He was in and out within two hours and left no sign of a handyman, as he left no remnants behind. He had to make a cutout in the back of my fancy vanity to accommodate the plumbing, but he didn't flinch and made sure it was okay with me before installing.
I highly recommend The Trusted Toolbox for all your handyman needs. I will certainly use them again soon!
Siding, Paint and Gutters, Oh My!
I contacted John and several other contractors for estimates to replace my old, rotted, defective Masonite siding, trim and rusty, falling gutters on my 27-year old house.
John was prompt in returning my call to set up an appointment and arrived as planned. He was in and out in no time, providing a very thorough inspection and detailed estimate.
John's estimate was comparable to most others, with one big exception -- things that other guys considered "extras" were included in John's original estimate. Also, he did not try to upsell me. He clearly explained what was needed and the replacement process. I am certain I would've spent a minimum of $500 in "extras" with other contractors.
John's diverse team of people allow for a seamless process -- no waiting for the carpenter/paint/gutter guy. John has them all at his fingertips, which is a huge plus.
John's team completed the job on time with no surprises! They worked quickly and cleaned up each day. John was in contact and reachable throughout the job and kept me updated on the next steps or if there would be any delays.
His payment schedule made me feel comfortable that I would not be duped, and he would not accept final payment until the walkthru was complete and I was satisfied.
I am so proud of my "new" old house! I highly recommend John Temmel for your siding replacement needs.
Look No Further...the Search is Over
Service. Knowledge. Honesty. Professionalism. All of these things are hard to find when it comes to home repairs.
After a botched A/C job in the heat of summer, I called Energy for help. I received a live person on the first attempt, and a callback from Fariaz within the hour. After explaining my problem, he let me know the cost of the service call and that he would be out later that day.
He came, he saw, he fixed! And, he educated me in plain English on the basic maintenance of my system. His pricing was fair and his work was thorough.
My current system is on it's last leg, and I will go to Energy for maintenance and replacement once it dies.
I highly recommend Energy Heating for all your HVAC needs. :)
