I know Streamwood is not know for World Class school system, but Glenbrook is one of the best in the area. We moved so that we could stay in this school district. The principal is caring and hands-on and most teachers are intersted in their students. Their school day starts early and ends at 2pm, so be prepared to have your kids home early, but they are given things to keep them busy at home.
PROS: Best in U46
CONS: Best in U46
The sales person was very friendly and knowldegeable. I did not feel rushed or expected to make any committments at the time of the quote. We did end up with them as movers because of the recommendations from family and the middle of the road price. But what was really good to see was the BBB did not have any complaints against this company. Other movers we spoke with had anywhere from 10-100 complaints filed against them.
PROS: Good price and friendly service
CONS: Not the cheapest in the bunch
When I sent my dog to stay here while I was on vacation, I noticed it was very clean, but small. It was also quite expensive for the time he was there. I did like the in door/ out door runs, so that he would have the option of going outside. I did not get a chance to inspect the dog area because they claimed insurance issues, but I did look in and the areas were not dirty and I thought they would be. It is close to my home and they are concerned with his health during his stay, so we will probably keep going.
Dr. Bedingfield and Rosewell were assisgned to our first child when he was born at St. Alexius. Since then, we have had another child and will never see another doctor! All the doctors, Bedingfield, Rosewell and Silver are fantastic. Each has a different style of being a doctor, but all are knowledgable. Even the NP is wonderful and I don't mind seeing her if the doctors are booked up. They get my kids in the same day when they are ill. I love our peds!
PROS: They care about kids!
CONS: Each doctor has a different bedside manner, check and see who you like!
Dr. Edward Walsh is a great dentist. He explains each procedure and tries his best to "save" your teeth. My mouth is a mess, two extractions and one root canal, but he did everything he could before he sent me to another doctor. His staff is kind and try their best to fit you in according to your schedule. Everyone is personable and parking is easy!
PROS: Personable staff
Dr. Abele, office staff and massage therapists are amazing. They have worked with me on migraines and back problems, even while I was pregnant. Also, the office staff made sure I was covered for care by my health care insurance. Dr. Abele is personable and always remembers who I am and my kids names. Elizabeth the office person knows exactly who I am when I call. Their caring and friendliness make going to the doctor fun!
PROS: Easy to find parking
CONS: May have to wait for massage therapist appointment, but worth it!
I have found that they do good work and charge a fair price. When I had problems with my Aprilaire they installed, they talked me through it over the phone on Christmas Day so that we could resolve the situation and both enjoy our day. They did so at no charge, even though the Aprilaire system was out of warrenty by a few years. I always call them for my HVAC needs.
PROS: Fair and down to earth
CONS: You still have to pay, none really.
This is a circut exercise facility that also has a sauna, massuse, treadmill and other machines to spice up your work out. The hours are not as good as a standard workout facility, but they are trying to expand to more hours and Saturday and Sunday. They also have a line of nutritional supplements to help your whole health. These can be a bit over priced and not worth the money.
PROS: All Women only
CONS: Shorter hours
We took our children there, and all the lively decorations and music kept everyone in a good mood. The food was excellent, esp the coconut shrimp and of course crab legs. There was plenty of the food and the prices were not crazy! Everyone had a good time!
PROS: Excellent food and fun atmosphere
CONS: Might miss the turn to get into off of Golf Road, so keep your eyes open.
This was the first time I bought a car that was not a Ford. The service is fabulous and the purchasing was easy and I didn't feel ripped off. They were not able to wheel and deal as much as I would have liked, but one year later and they still provide excellent customer service.
PROS: Friendly people, will meet or beat prices
CONS: Does not offer 0% interest to anyone
