We called Dyser when our plumbling from the house to the street was pretty much shot. We had gotten quotes from many companies all double what Dyser could do the job for. They were quick to get started and unlike many companies who wanted to come in with equiptment and tear up my yard they dug by hand and left my yard intact. He also obtained all the necessary permits and replaced the non-code stuff previously in the plumbing. They replaced everything with minimal disruption to my household and the workers were very polite and very timely. I really like Dyser because I didn't feel like he was trying to charge more than what he should be, he was a very honest business man and we did end up using him more than once.
I visited with Dr. Reiber back in 2003 for gallbladder removal surgery. The office staff was very pleasant and informed me of all I would need to do to assist them in helping with all aspects of the surgery, from pre-surgical appts to insurance aspects. Dr. Reiber himself explained exactly what would need to be done, how he would do it, when he would do it, and what I would need to do before and after surgery. He was very reassuring that he has done the surgery many a times, and that I would be able to care for my young child fairly easily in the days after. The day of surgery he was great in the operating room before I went out. His surgical staff was also very reassuring. I was release on a Saturday and he himself came to sign the release and discharge me. He again explaine the care and caution I would need to take. I healed well and had little to no pain, and was fine when I visited for my post-op appointment. I found him to have a wonderful bedside manner and would use him again if I needed it.
I went to this cake shop as a beginner who had only made 3 maybe 7 decorated cakes and was begged to make my Brother In Law's Wedding Cake. If it wasn't for the help of the WONDERFUL ladies at Honey Bee I probably wouldn't have made it. First off, customer service is one of the fortes. They answered so many questions and were very patient with me. They also gave me the confidence I needed to complete the cake, not to mention the supplies. One of the things I like about Honey Bee is you can buy what you need in the quanity you need it cheaper than you can get in a chain craft store. They also offer more than just one brand of decorating supply and even offer higher quality products so you can produce your best product possible. They carry a ton of premade supplies and toppers for all your needs too. They also offer classes that are done more at your own pace then at the pace of a very large class done at craft stores. I love this cake shop and recommend it to everyone!
Rolling Oats is a great place to go if you are looking for organic foods, whole foods, vitamins or natural remedies. They carry a wide array of products. The staff is generally very helpful and usually can assist you in picking out the perfect remedy if you are having a problem, or help you find what vitamin combination you may be looking for. The organic foods are great. They are usually very good quality and this is one of the few places you can find them. They have a much larger selection of organic/natural products than most of the chain grocery stores. They also carry a good assortment of healthful snacks for kids, and alternatives to those with food allergies, which can be hard to find in regular stores. All in all Rolling Oats is a good thing and I try to go "natural" when ever possible.
Bringe Music Store is full of well versed musicians. Each know what instrument is the best and what makes each one different and which is better for the beginner or the pro. They have many, many brands of instruments, from Oboes to Drums. They have all kinds of sheet music, and that includes favorites from popular movies, and even method books to many more. Their prices are very reasonable and they even have more affordable rent to own programs, or even just to rent programs to help those that can't afford to outright buy. They work to help you find what you are looking for and if you can not find it they can order it for you, or direct you to where you can find it. They are a wonderful music company that even has a school of music above(which can be helpful if you are a beginner). Most people go to Bringe before they travel elsewhere, great customer service at decent prices.
I absolutely love shopping in this dog store. I am quite an animal lover with 3 dogs and I can find interesting, different things here, as wells as normal everyday things you need. They carry a huge variety of accessories and specialty items dog lovers like. They have a lot of personalized knick-knacks and mementos, as well as interesting housewares with different breeds on them. Some things can be quite pricey, but you are in a specialty store buying things that might be breed specific for decorative purposes or because you can't find it anywhere else. All the staff is very knowledgable and obviously they love dogs. They carry alot of valuable information on training clubs, and offer many recommendations. I do remember that they carry some dog flea medications, which makes it very convient. If you are looking for something interesting to give to the dog lover in your life, or the pet in your life this is the place to go. If they don't have it they can direct you to someone who does!
Having many pets I frequent many pet stores. This one is rather on the small side. They offer many supplies for dogs, cats and other small animals. The staff was very nice and helpful. This is a great store to come to and not overwhelming for a pet if you needed to try on a leash/collar/harness combination. They had a decent amount of supplies and weren't overload with toys and frilly stuff. They are a true pet supply store and carry things that your pet would actually need. It is good for the location as there aren't too many pet stores in that general vicinty. In that aspect it is definately your best bet for convience, but maybe a little short on variety.
I saw Dr. Glenn for numerous problems before and during my pregnancy. Dr. Glenn is hard to get an appointment with but with good reason. She is the best doctor I have ever seen. Her office staff is efficient and very nice. The wait to see her can get long, but again she is well worth the wait. I have NEVER met or worked for a doctor that took so much time to make sure you were taken care of. She asked all kinds of questions, gave you her thoughts made sure she covered every inch of any problem you have before giving you possible solutions. She also has the best beside manner of ANY doctor I've ever met and is extremely genuine. If you are lucky enough to be able to see Dr. Glenn she is well worth the wait and truly listens to you. If I hadn't moved I'd be going there and I will recommend her to everyone.
We had to use this office for a semi-emergent visit for one of our pets as our regular vet was booked solid. This office staff was wonderful. I was able to get a same day appointment and even had a few questions answered that could have gotten me through till our regular vet could accomadate us. The office was incredibly clean for a vets office. We were seen very quickly and the vet tech was also a dog trainer and helped me address a few issues with some behavioral problems. He looked at the hot spot and got the doctor. The doctor was very nice and explained everything very well to me about the problem my dog was having and what else it could mean. He made sure I understood all of the information and dosages of medications before I left. A few days after I left I received a call checking on my animal and to reassure me on any concerns I was having. Price was decent and would definately use again .
We ventured off to Patio and Hearth to find some new patio furniture. They are a small company of 5 store located mostly in Ohio and one in Kentucky. We came at the end of the patio season and most of the Christmas and Fireplace stuff was in full swing. We were greeted by a very nice gentleman who showed us around and told us about all of the special they were having. The patio furniture was a little price per set but they have wondeful warranties and are much better quality than what you will buy at a chain store. We like the atmosphere here because we really didn't feel any pressure to buy anything and we didn't because of it being the wrong time of season. However we will buy next year when the patio stuff is in season because of how friendly and helpful/non pressuring the staff was, and of how good the quality of prodcut was.
