In 2010 I got DeltaCare insurance thru Medicare (Delta Dental) so I went to Esthetic Smiles in Oxnard (Dr. Abijian). After taking x-rays, I was told I needed a deep cleaning. I went back twice - as they did half my mouth at a time. I was charged $630. I called Delta insur. to complain about the very high price & was told that they also paid. Last week, I went back for my regular cleaning. I was at the office at 10 A.M - which was my appt. They directed me to the dental office where I laid on the dental chair for at least 20 min. I asked where the dental hygenist was & was told that they doubled-booked and the hygenist was cleaning the other person's teeth and that person arrived before me. They sure know how to rip off customers & treat them badly.
I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer & Dr. Hogan performed my surgery in February 2006. I did not expect to live more than 2 years - but it's now over 5 years & I'm cancer-free. Dr. Hogan is superb - he saved my life. I highly recommend him.
Has anyone done the Streamline loan (FHA) thru Chase in Oxnard? I'm considering refinancin & want feedback.
I had been eating at Ottavios for many years. Recently, my friend took me there for my birthday. It was disgusting!!!!!! The waitress was weird. When she took our order - she looked sideways - not at us. She obviously has mental challenges. I ordered eggplant parmagiana - it was cold - so I sent it back to get re-heated - obviously in a microwave. It was one of the worst meals ever. I emailed them what I thought about my dinner & didn't get a response. My friend took me out again the following week to another restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I was talking my my roomie yesterday & he just happened to mention that he ate at Ottavio's (he's from out of town & just arrived here). He hated it!!!!!!
For Plumbing work - call Mark Gerber - owner of Gold Coast Plumbing. He did plumbing work for me & my neighbor Louise - in north Oxnard. A few weeks later, my neighbor's hot water heater started to leak - on a Friday around 5PM - the worst day & time. She called Mark and an hour later, he sent his worker to replace and install a new hot water heater. We are very pleased with Mark's reasonable prices and he does a great job. He cares about his customers & he's very honest.
Last year I went to this pet store to buy a lhasa apso. Laurie told me she doesn't carry lhasas because they bite. She tried to sell me another dog - which I immediately couldn't stand. She has zero personality - and just wanted to make a sale - at a very high price. I went on-line & found a woman in Fontana that bred lhasas (around 3-4 liters a year). The woman drove to my house in Oxnard (as I'm not able to drive the freeway) with the lhasa (2 months old). I paid her very well for delivering the puppy to me & she charged me $550 for the puppy - who is the love of my life.
Banfield is a scam company. They pressure you to buy their wellness plan - as they do a printout of your pets problems & their cost. They explain that it would be cheaper to buy their plan. They do unnecessary tests & then try to sell you medication, which costs 3 times more than if you went to Walmart. Stay away!!!!!! They pretend to be vets - wearing white jackets - when they have no skills. Find a local independent vet.
