Lance Hirsch is a very good vet who really cares about his patients. His office was a bit behind the times as far as vaccination protocols last time I was in there, but they have likely come up to date by now. The staff is so friendly and does a good job. The boarding is ok, they don't really have a lot of room to exercise the dogs.
PROS: knowledgable & experienced
CONS: can be expensive, not a lot of room to exercise dogs who are boarding
As is typical of most Whole Foods, the deli is excellent as is the service. I love stopping in on my way home from work and picking up an already prepared dinner. The salad bar is excellent and I love the wine selection. There is always someone knowledgable and friendly available to help you.
PROS: great deli, prepared foods, and wine
CONS: can be expensive
I switched to this vet (Kat Lavelle) after the new vaccination protocols came out and my old vet still did not want to follow them (more vaccs, more $ after-all!). Kat is obviously very knowledgable and stays up to date with all new research that comes out and is more than willing to discuss it with you. It is obvious that she loves animals and wants to do what is best for them, not what is best for her paycheck. I also like that they carry and recommend the high-end foods like Innova, Canidea, etc. instead of the typical Science Diet crap you find most vets pushing.
PROS: very experienced, knowledgable, up to date
I got my bridesmaid dresses for my wedding at Bride Beautiful. The prices were excellent and the dresses came in early. My one quip was that they had the girls order up in size and every single one of them had to have the dress altered back down.
I have several friends who have gotten their wedding dresses at this Davids, and all were very pleased. They have a large selection and excellent prices and the service is typically good. I have gotten several bridesmaid dresses here and have always been pleased.
PROS: good prices, good selection
Scoobie did the hair and makeup for my friend's wedding for not only the bride, but for all her bridesmaids and the mothers as well. Everyone looked AMAZING, he was able to do exactly what the bride wanted. In addition, he was just tons of fun! Every bride on theknot.com Atlanta message boards loves loves loves him, he has done ALL of their hair and makeup and no one is ever dissapointed!
PROS: very skilled & experienced
Jean Pickard has been my mothers travel agent for years and has planned numerous fabulous trips for her all over Europe, the Carribbean, and even the US. She planned my honeymoon for me this past spring and I couldn't be more pleased. She had great recommendations not only for places to stay, but places to eat, things to see & do, etc and she made it all happen within our budget. She has traveled pretty much everywhere herself so she can make personal recommendations, and neither I nor my mother have ever been dissapointed.
PROS: very experienced, stays within budget, has great recommendations
I have been going to Lei Guy at this salon for years and I just love her. She does a fabulous job every time, and the salon itself is really nice, never too crowded, etc. The prices are comprable to most decent salons.
PROS: very talented!
This is a great little nail salon on Ponce across from City Hall East. They do a good job and are inexpensive. I also booked a large wedding party here (12 girls) and they actually opened up the store early for us and were able to take all of us at one time, which was great.
PROS: do a nice job, inexpensive, walk-in
CONS: can be busy
Andrew is a fabulous agent....he will work really hard to find you exactly what you are looking for. He does a lot of work both in town as well as out in the northern suburbs. In addition to myself, he was also the agent for my co-worker and 5 friends...all of us were looking for something different, in different locations around Atlanta, and he came through for each of us. He is young and energetic and he really knows what he is doing. I would never consider buying though anyone else!
PROS: works hard, experienced, fun, energetic
