Dr. Gerber (can't forget that name) has a new practice but we've seen it grow pretty quickly over the past two years. The office is set up to entertain kids. My kids seem to be excited about going there. The care is great and you will get more information than you can reasonably absorb from Dr. Gerber.
I really don't have much done other than cleanings 3x per year. Dr. Hoffman is very thorough with his checking. They seem to run a pretty tight ship so you generally don't need to wait very long. Magazines are reasonably up to date. ;-)
This place is a favorite among Stanford students walking from graduate housing and old Palo Alto residents who recognize a great meat and fish counter. Also excellent wines and cheeses. The prices are also pretty premium. Not for Costco type shopping.
I found this place through a usenet group more than ten years ago. My wfie has been taking her Legend there since. Very good servce and the employees can absolutelly be trusted to give your fair assessments.
This is a family operation which will make you feel like part of the family after a few cuts. We've been bringing the kids for years now and they always look 100% better.
If your child is ready for an academic preschool program, I think you'll find he or she will be happy and make a lot of progress. Most kids come out of the preschool knowing how to read a bit.
Our younger child went through this and was excited when he arrived and when he left at the end of the day. If your child is both learning and happy, there's a lot to be said for the program.
The staff was very good. They are a highly structured school, which leads to less inconsistency in the preschool teachers.
Our family has been using PAMF for years. The only problem we've had has been getting connected by telephone. It can be very frustrating to get a live person, especially when you have near emergencies.
Other than that (oh, and the terrible parking garage layout), we've been very happy with the medical care. Having a broad reach of great physicians has resulted in great care across a fairly broad spectrum of needs.
Hoover Elementary School is a choice school meaning you must submit to a lottery to get in. The philosophy of the school includes quiet classrooms and direct instruction. The school also seems to give more homework than other Palo Alto elementary schools.
If you keep score using the STAR tests, Hoover is one of the top performers in the state.
Despite an order process which could provide a case study at Stanford Biz School in what *not* to do, the bagels here are fresh and a great incarnation of the steamed variety.
Of course, if you want true New York bagels, they must be boiled. If you find a place, let us know.
The people there are the best part. Don't dare come in with a frown on your face.
We were introduced to this restaurant by friends from Hong Kong who take their food very seriously. The shredded duck soup is a favorite of our kids. We've been happy with all the dishes we've had there.
It's too bad they don't make any effort on the exterior and having to traipse outside for the bathroom is kind of weird. The dining area is fine, however.
