Everyone in this office is always so easy to deal with. They're easy to make an appointment with, reasonable prices, and the professionals are just that - professionals. They are accepted on almost every dental plan in Lynchburg (I've been on two dental plans and they have been on both). I have always been given good advice/treatment options which follow up when I go home to do research on my own. The office is clean, everyone is conscious of their hygiene. I've rarely waited more than 10 minutes in the waiting room, and they always call a week before your appointment to remind you.
Overall everyone is nice, but unless you're 65 or you have really small children, there isn't much here for you. I also got a lot of follow-up calls (maybe for an entire year) from this place trying to get me to become a member.
This place has good prices and a great selection, however like most pet places, they don't have much for things besides cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, etc.
I bought a nightstand from them. They were the cheapest place in Lynchburg that had the nightstand, but one of the employees had a hard time keeping his eyes to himself. The prices, services, time, etc. was great, but the overall "ambience" could use some help. They had all of the catalogs that they advertised at selling, and immediatly knew what I was talking about when I gave them the model number of the nighstand. I'd go back again and buy from them, but only because they were the cheapest in town. Their "showroom "left a lot to be desired.
I had my hair and makeup done here before I was a bridesmaid in a wedding. Overall the experience was OK, but the makeup was a bit garish and the hair a bit 80's.
We had a small (8x8) bathroom redone by them. It took them 7 weeks to finish (original quote, 3 weeks). We had to babysit them to make sure that everything they did was what we had asked for. Frequently it was not. What we asked them to change they did, and had a pretty good attitude about it. Overall I'd say they do a halfway job. We also have asked them to come back a few times to finish things that weren't done correctly the first time (mismatching grout, not using primer on the walls, a few dings in the walls, etc.). I'd use them again, just not for a major project.
Bell's Automotive has always provided me with the correct service (ie no talking me into new services, etc.) and they're trustworthy not to take something from your car, but they can be a little slow. They have a decent location, but always seem to have a lot of cars parked outside in the parking lot. I took a car in that had major problems for an 'inspection' and was only charged the inspection rate, though I am sure that they took way more time to check the car out. At the end they gave me a thorough evaluation.
Their name is supposed to speak volumes about the types of people inside. Recently I went in to look at some jewelry. I had planned to spend quite a bit of money, however when I got inside I was ignored and another customer was taken first, presumably because he looked like he had more money to spend. I promptly took my business elsewhere. Their jewelry is gorgeous though.
I take my cat here every year for her vet visits and anytime she needs anything in between. They are always very easy to schedule, responsive to your questions, however I've noticed they never have the next month's schedule until the month has almost started! However, the vets are great and have always been responsive to my problems, no matter how trivial. I've always been able to get appointments in the same week. I have called at the end of a month though, and the schedule for the next month isn't set up! Great building, the exam rooms are always cleaned up from any previous animals. I have no experience with boarding, however.
This Betty Brite is definitely more pricey than the other Betty Brite and doesn't run as good of specials. That being said, it does a good job at cleaning, nothing torn, damaged, or lost. It has a great location, though the parking lot can be a bit hard to get in and out of. They've gotten the stains out of everything I have brought in.
