I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wheatley. He has a comforting air about him from his many years of experience and puts the patient at ease. His services are personal and top-notch. He explains what he's doing before he starts the work, and makes the process less painful than expected.
My husband had been told by another dentist he'd need major work, but Dr. Wheatley worked to save the tooth. A root canal that we'd been truly dreading (egged on, no doubt, by horror stories from all our friends) was amazingly quick and nearly painless, such a pleasant surprise.
The front staff is sweet and kind. The waiting room is friendly and comfortable, well stocked with current magazines and always decorated for the season. They worked hard to get us in quickly.
No one really enjoys going to a dentist, right? I have no complaints, though, about Dr. Beck. He has seen all my children and husband and we were completely satisfied with his level or service. He was thorough, professional, and chatty. The front staff were pleasant and helpful. It takes awhile to get in, especially for a routine checkup and cleaning. The rooms are clean and the waiting room seats reasonably comfortable.
Forget Disney World, my kids have always thought the Gymnastic Sports Center is the happiest place on earth. We've been involved with classes and attending parties for over a decade, and continue to be impressed with the clean, safe environment, professionally charming staff, and high quality instruction.
Classes include beginner and competitive gymnastics, a competitive cheer squad, tumbling, and Gymkata (a unique blend of Tae Kwon Do and gymnastics that makes boys feel like a Hollywood martial arts superhero - instead of colored belts they earn ranks with ninja-style headbands).
For parties, you get the entire gym to yourself with access to the inground trampolines, balance beams, bars, rings, vault, tumbling tramp, the biggest spring floor in the area, and super games. The older kids like to play soccer on the gym floor or swing on the rope out over the foam pits screaming like Tarzan. The only drawback is that parties are so popular you have to book nearly 2 months in advance.
The owners run a tight ship with well-trained staff, Everyone will jump to run and help you. Parents are always welcome to stay and watch classes with plenty of chair/table space and even an upstairs observation area with a fenced play area for little siblings.
My daughter literally did Jump for Joy the last time she was invited to a party here. What a fabulous and happy place! Jump for Joy offers unique services to this area. They have open jump/play times and party packages. The building is full of colossal inflatable toys that the kids bounce, climb, slide, and generally go nuts on. They always come home tired. :)
The party room adds a special touch, with lots of room for guests to eat, an inflated throne for the guest of honor to open packages on (sweet photo opp), and the birthday child gets his hand print and name painted on the wall. The kids love searching the wall when they walk in for friends' names.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
The cost for the daily open play time is cheap; party prices are higher but not out of line with similar services, and you certainly get a great afternoon or evening out of it.
Only drawback - it shares a parking lot with another kid friendly business, and at certain times parking is congested and it takes several minutes to squeeze into a spot and you need to watch carefully for kids running around.
I was amazed at the friendliness of all the ladies who worked here. Not only did my own hair stylist seem genuinely pleased to meet me and happy to talk with me, finding out what style would be best for my hair, but the other stylists did, too. It was such a warm atmosphere that I felt like I was among friends on my very first visit.
The styling services were done professionally and met all my expectations, and the prices were very reasonable. I will definitely return here and highly recommend them to others.
