**THIS IS A REVIEW OF ONLY THE HAIR SALON AT JC PENNEY**
This salon is right in Carousel Mall and is very tiny. The waiting room is three chairs. The place is loud, messy, and confusing. They do take walk ins but you never know who you will get and what you will get. I have gone to this place a few times and every time, my bangs were cut way too short. I don't know why but every stylist seems to have a thing for lopping off more hair than you ask to be cut.
For a simple haircut, this is a passable salon. I would never go here for anything more than that though. It is just too rushed and too disorganized. I prefer a homey, more familiar place not a busy mall salon. Prices are pretty high as expected.
They have a lot of products for sale and those prices are actually pretty good. I often buy styling products there but don't have my hair styled there any longer. Too many lost inches for me!
I would say this is an average place for simple cuts. I have seen people getting perms and highlights and the results seemed Ok but I wouldn't even attempt something like that at this place.
The stylists change often so, if you get one you like, be sure she or he lets you know when they are leaving.
I give this a Satisfactory rating but, for me, it isn't a place I would go. For a guy, a kid, or a woman who wants a simple haircut and is at the mall, it's an average place. But if you want something complicated, it gets very expensive and the surroundings are chaotic.
This is a very small lot with used cars that, at first, looks like a dump. Cars and trucks are parked everywhere and some look to be in bad shape. Upon closer inspection, though, this isn't a bad little dealer. they have vehicles of all kinds at decent prices. They are very easy going and allow you to test drive the vehicles and inspect them closely. I didn't sense any hard sell or pushing when I was looking over the card there.
Although I did not buy a car there, I won't hesitate to go back when I need another used vehicle or when my son is ready. They are priced well and small, which means you get much more personal attention than the huge auto malls. (Or should I say "huge-AH!").
This is a decent used car dealer with limited space and inventory but friendly helpful staff and no hard sell or pushing.
They are right on a corner with limited place to park so beware and be careful where you park your car as there are no real spots to park on the busy street.
Malta House and Malta Manor are apartment complexes for the frail and elderly as well as the disabled. They are small apartments with a little kitchen, decent sides living room, small bedroom, and small bathroom. They have two closets and are enough for a senior to live comfortably. They are completely unfurnished.
A senior must apply to get in and his or her rent is based on income.
The apartments are OK. Management, however, is woefully non understanding of an elderly person's needs.
They have a community room where residents can gather yet they do not allow scooters, such as the ones more mobile elderly adults have, inside. What is an elderly person to do?
They have a manager on during the day at both places. June, the manager at the newer Malta Manor, is not well liked nor is she equipped to handle the elderly. She is gruff and treats the residents like prison inmates rather than apartment dwellers. Malta House, the older building, is actually better built and nicer - though the manager there is gruff as well.
Both have a system where you must punch in a number to get in or call an apartment and get buzzed on. That's great of the person you are visiting has no hearing problems. if so, you can't call them to notify them that you are there and you can't get in! If you go during the day and someone is around, they'll open the door, otherwise you are stuck. As we all know elderly people often have hearing loss and can't hear the phone ringing so the system is badly flawed.
Malta House has a nice outside seating area but Malta Manor has nowhere for residents to sit in the summertime and that's a shame.
These are decent apartments that are much better than a nursing home but could use a lot of improvement to make them more than average.
I recently visited a family member at this place and what a shock. It was terrible. The place was dirty, they were understaffed, and people were literally hanging out of their wheelchairs with no help.
I was appalled by the conditions and even more so with the lack of caring from the aides and nurses.
My family member is quite sharp and he told me weekends are so bad that he stays in his room away from the "craziness" and "cruelty" that he sees happening.
People are left to drool or sit in wet or soiled clothing and I saw only one or two aides in the whole place.
I know the state of nursing home care is bad -- I have a a parent in the worst of all (Loretto Cunningham) -- but this just isn't right.
If you are placing a loved one in a nursing home, go visit unannounced. Try it on a weekend especially and see how the residents act and are treated.
There are some good adult and nursing homes in the area but this isn't one of them.
These places desperately need more staffing!
I always thought it was funny that a dentist's name was Sweet. But that's neither here nor there. My oldest son recently went to Dr. Sweet for a routine filling. The office is small and there is a huge tooth outside with the dentist's name on it - you can't miss it.
The office is not high tech but is clean and compact. My son is almost 20 but still gets kind of anxious at the dentist (who doesn't?) but he had no problems and came out smiling.
The dentist is friendly and calm, doesn't rush or make you feel nervous. He does a good job and tries to be sure you are pain free.
I have no problem going back here and I may. It's time for me to get a cleaning and this dentist seems to be good and charge slightly less than the others I have gone to. Although we have dental insurance, my son does not and he was able to make payments which I feel is a good thing for the uninsured.
Like I said, not high tech, but clean, cozy, and homey.
I wouldn't have a problem recommending this practice to friends and family.
One caveat though - he doesn't do complicated work. That will need to done at a specialist's office which, I suppose, if the best way to get that sort of work done.
This is a good practice. My husband has some moles that need to be watched for changes and he goes to this office periodically. The wait can be a bit long as with many busy practices. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the doctors don't rush you.
This is more of a medical dermatology practice than one for cosmetic needs like micro dermbrasion and peels, etc. I see many people in the waiting room with skin disorders and other physical situations and have been told the practice more geared toward the medical aspect of dermatology like my husband's problem.
Still, they do a good job and are reliable. I have no problems with them and, if you have a reason to see a dermatologist, this is a reputable group to visit.
This was absolutely the worst place I have ever seen in my life. My mother was sent there for rehab after two brain aneurisms.
She was only there three days and ended up back in the ICU due to their errors.
The place is dirty! You can see stains and dirt on the walls and floors. The rooms are little and very much in need of paint and sprucing up.
The care is awful. There are too many patients per aide and it shows.
They were not around much and would put my mother in a wheelchair and let her sit alone in her room for hours. They were well aware that she needed to be retrained in all aspects of life as she had brain damage that was reversible with retraining yet they didn't try to retrain. She often would sit in her own urine until we got there and changed her ourselves.
She was not to take any pills by mouth as her swallowing was just coming back. She had a feeding tube when she went but they removed it the day she got there against our wishes. She was able to swallow applesauce and pudding type foods but not liquids yet and certainly not pills.
They gave her whole pills to take with water and the end result was aspiration into her lungs and a near death experience that kept her in ICU for months. She was never the same.
This place needs more staff and, if they aren't equipped to handle head trauma patients, should not accept them. I know they do rehab on people who have minor things to work through and some have said they are decent.
That could be. But for us, the experience was our worse nightmare come true.
They didn't communicate with us, they didn't understand the levity and brevity of my mother's needs and they simply could not care for someone who needed full time assistance.
They failed my mother, they failed us, and they made a near grave error.
If you or your family member is referred there, check the place out completely, ask questions, be sure whatever you or they are going there for is something they are equipped to handle. If your loved one h
Shawn Steiger is a down to earth woman who is very much intune with her patients. She is a social worker but also is schooled in EMDR, a special kind of therapy that helps patients with trauma and stress from past incidences.
The office is in an old house which is pretty run down. The area is not the best and may not be the safest but we have never had trouble there.
Shawne's office is down a tiny hallway and the office itself is bare bones. A couch that no one sits on and a chair for you and one for her. A desk is the only other piece of furniture besides a little book case.
Her style is talk therapy in general and she also tries to get you to recall past instances of abuse or trauma.
When she practices EMDR, which is holding small electrodes in your hand as they buzz back and forth from hand to hand (causing your eyes to unwittingly move back and forth with the bizz and opening the subconscious), she is very good at knowing how far to take you before stopping. Sometimes, EMDR can be very scary for people and a counselor must know when to stop and she does.
She is very friendly and personable and available to you by phone at her office or home.
She has night hours which are a great help fpr people who can't leave work.
Sessions are about 45-50 minutes long and the price is on par with counseling services everywhere. Most insurances will cover some if not all of the cost.
If you want talk therapy for trauma, anxiety, family issues, etc. Shawn maybe a good person to go to. The support helps a lot in times of need and her non judgmental way allows people to open up. She is very professional yet she is also warm and caring.
She is also super flexible with appointments and will fit you in whenever she can.
Although she can't prescribe medicine (and is not an advocate medication unless clearly needed), she does have physiatrists she knows who she will refer you to if you need medication. She has had a lot of varied experiences herself, so her compassion and und
This is a rather strange place. My brother and his estranged son went here to try to heal their relationship.
While they do have some odd alternative counseling, my bother saw a good, older counselor who managed to repair 25 years of damage. I was in several of the meetings and it was a positive experience.
The rooms are tiny to the point of claustrophobic, though, with couches and chairs and little else. However, the counseling itself was excellent.
It was all talk therapy and the counselor pulled no punches and made my brother and his son face some tough realities.
I was there because I was part of my nephew's life for a long time even when my brother was not.
I found that the experience brought everyone closer and, now, my brother and nephew are as close as can be.
Bright Path has some group therapies, "healing camps", and other types of counseling which are questionable (and expensive) and not for everyone but their one on one therapists seem to be on the ball and very good.
Another plus is they have night hours which is very helpful for those who can't get off work to attend sessions.
I would recommend this place for people looking to work out issues but a visit to the office first and a talk with the front desk staff about your concerns and needs is most important.
Once matched with a good counselor, you should make significant strides if you work at it.
My family member goes here and I have been there with her. This is a new, clean practice with seemingly knowledgeable staff.
the rooms are clean. In fact, the whole place is new and clean.
The service is a touch more expensive, I was told, then others but my family member says that they are very good and very careful.
I am supposed to see a chiropractor for a neck injury but am hesitating die to horror stories about them. However, after a tour and a few visit s there, if I choose to go to one, this is where I would go,
Their hours are good and their whole staff if friendly. They seem to be very professional and patients rave about their service.
My family member says she has never felt better and her back is now pain free and she has been to three others before this one.
Based on all that, I say this is a 4 star place. When I go (if I go), I will update with more.
However, based on all I have seen and the reviews I got from patients going in and out of there, this is a better than average place and should be considered when making a decision about going to a chiropractor..
