Our family has been clients of Dr. Rocha at Firestone Animal Hospital (FAH) since he was first located accoss the street from All American Home Center. The office has since moved and I continue using his services because they have always provided compassionate, caring and quality veterinarian services. As for the rates, they are comparable to other veterinarian hospitals.
It was Oct. 2005 and our dog Chaco, a 9 lbs toy fox terrier was hit by a car. Chaco had serious trauma, collapsed lungs, internal bleeding and a fracture to his leg that looked like a million shattered pieces of glass on the X-ray. We immediately contacted FAH. Because it was after hours, the on call service referred us to a 24 hour ER Animal Hospital in Norwalk. Chaco spent the night in ICU and fortunately made it through that night. The next morning we transferred Chaco (after paying $1,800 for a night in ICU) to FAH. Dr. Rocha was very honest as was the ICU in Norwalk and said the fractured leg may not be repairable. We asked for the alternative (surgery) accepting the risks fully explained by Dr. Rocha. Chaco had surgery to remove the pieces of shattered bone and insert a titanium replacement. We expected a 4-5 day inpatient recovery, but Dr. Rocha and his wife noticed Chaco was depressed after my visits and would not eat unless I would visit mid day during my lunch hour and hand feed him. Dr. Rocha??s wife even made Chaco home made chicken broth hoping to provide some nourishment. In the end, Dr. Rocha encouraged me to take him home after 3 days and provided specific directions on caring for him and a scheduled follow up visit a week after.
Chaco is now 11 years old and runs and plays like the car accident never happened. His nickname is ??The Bionic Dog? and we have Dr. Rocha to thank for that. I highly recommend Dr. Rocha, a skilled and professional veterinarian and surgeon.
Yes, Lakewood Target is two stories and very large, but it's a store full of nothing. The Target on Bellflower is not as big and has so much more.
The customer service is good and prices are great, but the management team needs to walk around, open there eyes and start filling up the store with more merchandise and products. I keep going back but end up driving to another Target in Long Beach(usually Bellflower or South Street).
I love Nordstrom, but the Cerritos location is lacking in Customer Service. I drive to South Coast Plaza and only go to Cerritos in desperation. On one occasion, the staff (2) did not acknowledge me and even talked to each other (accessories/watches dept.) about the previous night of drunkeness while I waited for assistance. I even cleared my throat as a hint and finally interrupted the conversation. They looked annoyed, but took out the Betsy Johnson necklace from behind the glass counter and rang me up. Cerritos also has less selection. I refer to the store as Express Nordstrom, which is fine if they would emphasize customer service as they do at other locations.
Forever 21, terrible customer service. Staff is on the floor but do no acknowledge you and when approached for help they only point you to the other side of the store.
If you know what you are looking for then shop till you drop, but don't expect any help.
I have been a long time client of Farouk. He is an expert in color, color correction and does fabulous haircuts. My 3 daughters are also his clients. We get compliments on our hair wherever we go! The salon is very nice and comfortable and prices for color and cut are reasonable compared to surrounding salons. I refer all of my friends and the random people that ask me about my hair to Farouk.
