When I called them for an appointment I was told that all the doctors there do not accept new patients but some do. I did not have to wait at all. The doctor was caring and took a long time to understand the problem. She even called me later to find out how I was doing. I went back a number of times and she asked me if I was satisfied or wanted a change of doctor. The hospital campus is huge and they have many divisions. It is located in a quiet, green and hilly area which is easily accessible from the highway. They do most of the tests in their facilities itself. The nurses are knowledgebale and have been there for a long time which makes it comfortable for the patients.
PROS: good treatment
I had a bitter experience on my only visit to this place. First they insisted on doing all types of tests instead of only the regular checkup and cleaning for which I had taken the appointment. They said that the insurance would take care of the expenses. My other dentists have always called the insurance company before going ahead with any treatment to verify the coverage but they did not. They asked me to go back later for some more tests. Sometime later I got a letter stating that the insurance did not cover the costs as these were not regular tests. I never went back to them.
CONS: expensive, unnecessary treatment
The Stamford Health Systen is one of the best hospitals in the area. There are a number of buildings in the campus and each serves a different kind of treatment. The sign boards and directions to the different facilities is clear. Doctors and nurses can be called at any time of the day and they are caring and attentive. The place is clean and the atmosphere is calm and soothing. For patients who are hospitalised they provide everything from food to clothing and other basic needs. Their maternity center is very advanced and they have a neo natal intensive care unit too. They encourage the baby to stay with the mother but nurses are ready to take care of the baby in the nursery at all times. The rooms are big with lots of space for a family member to stay. Valet parking is available during the day. There is a lot of parking space but you still have to search around for a spot sometimes.
PROS: clean, relaxing, spacious, good view
I considered Mehlman Properties while looking for an apartment in Stamford. They did not have as many listings as the other agents. They did show me a few apartments but the locations were not good. In fact most of the houses were not in good condition. The agents were friendly and take time to show you around. What I liked about them is that they do not make their clients to sign a bond/clause beforehand stating that you can search only through them. They do charge you for the credit check but only after you have finalised a house.
PROS: good agents
CONS: very few choices
The Crown Theatre at Landmark Square does show the latest releases but you do not get to watch the major blockbusters often. I prefer the other theatres in Stamford. What I have noticed is that mainly kids movies are a hit here. But if you want to enjoy a good evening with the family or with friends, then you can go to this place. Since it is in the same building as the Stamford Town Center Mall, the location is the attraction and you can do some fine shopping and dining too in the same visit. The condition of the halls are good. Parking space is not a problem though they charge a small fee.
PROS: good location
CONS: not too many good titles
Like other dollar stores, they sell all sorts of household articles ranging from kitchen utensils and tools, electronic gadgets, plastic flowers, books, cards, candles, bulbs, soaps and most of the items are priced at $1. But what is different abut this store is that they have alots of gift items and decorative pieces that are around $10 which sell for much more at other expensive stores. You cannot tell the items apart. An ATM machine is also located inside the store. Parking is not a problem as they are in a shopping center in a busy shopping area in Norwalk. The only problem that I faced is that the aisles are very narrow and the floor is dumped with boxes. It is difficult to pass through and with a stroller, it is next to impossible.
PROS: good range and cheap prices
CONS: crowded and untidy store
I have been here a number of times and I was satisfied by the hand wash and the polishing but I was disappointed with the vacuuming service. It was not at all well done and instead of cleaning the interior of the car they dirtied the carpets inside with dirt and grease marks. They offer free vauuming with washing so I think if you can do it yourself, you should. There is no time limit for this service. There are a lot of washing packages available and the common and least expensive one is priced around $15. But after hours you get a good discount. They also have a few self washing stations which is timed.
PROS: good cleaning
CONS: vacuuming not satisfactory
I had my car repaired once at their place and they did a wonderful job. The service was prompt and the delivery was on time. Their staff were very helpful to explain the different kinds of work being done on the car and to suggest alternatives. But the best part is that their repair estimate was well within the amount approved earlier by the insurance company. They were very flexible with the pick up time also.
PROS: good service and on time delivery
They are conveniently located right in the heart of Stamford. They specialise in wedding and baby portraits. The staff is courteous and take time to understand your needs or to give pictures that are tailored to your adjustments. For portraits you can either visit their studio or call them in the comforts of your own home. One can also choose an outdoor location like a park or a beach but this is available at an additional price. They use both the digital and the conventional film methods. You cannot get passport pictures taken here.
PROS: convenient locations
If you are looking for used goods for your home then Thrifty Boutiques has a lot to offer. The best time to visit them is during the day as they close in the early evening. They sell furniture, most of which are heavy wooden items. Smaller tables and dining sets are also available. Crockery, showpieces, electronic articles, beautiful carpets and rugs and also suitcases and bags are in their stock. Even though the items are used, they bear only slight marks and most of them look practically new. The boutique also has designer clothes, shoes and accessories for everyone in the household. You can donate your goods to them and these are tax deductible.
PROS: bargain prices
CONS: inventory keeps changing very fast
