I saw this office for the first time today, and I am pleased with everyone. In particular, Dr. Kanj was patient with me, talked with me, and gave me hope that there are things that can be done to help me with my PCO hell. I will be back to see them and I am happy with this group of doctors and staff.
We have dinner at Fountain Blue at least twice a week, sometimes more. Olga is not only the best server I have ever encountered, but she is also a friend.
Additionally, Fountain Bleu catered my daughters wedding reception, and they did a GREAT job.
Plus, this year 2010, their food is even improved. Portions are huge and prices are good.
I have been seeing Dr. Apelian for many years. He is honest, has a good bedside manner. I have PCO, low thyroid and a number of other health issues. I see Dr. Apelian for just about everything involving my medical case.
In 2005, I had pneumonia and Dr. Apelian took great care of me. As far as I am concerned, he saved my life.
My only upset is his recent decision to drop BC/BS - that really hurts because I do not have out of network insurance.
I have been going to my local vets, Plainfield Animal Hospital for a very long time, over 25 years. Last year I needed to get the spay work done on my 3 pug girls. My local vet gave me an estimate of 450-550 dollars to do one spay. With having 3 girls to do, the bill was a bit high. I purchased a spay certificate through Friends of Animals.org. The way that works is that you pay for the spay or neuter certificate and then based on your zip code, they give you a list of participating veterinarians. I selected All Pets to give them a try.
Dr. Sam did the spay on 2 of my pugs and he did a good job with them. He also did a surgery for one of my pug girls to remove struvite bladder stones. Dr. Sam was caring and offered his home phone and cell phone to me, he said I could call him if there was any concerns the night I took her home.
The only down side is that his office is not close for me. In good traffic its a 45 minute ride. Not exactly around the corner.
I have been going to the Plainfield Animals Hosp for over 25 years. The doctors are good to excellent, and Dr. B is a great surgeon. He did a wonderful job removing a pre-cancerous growth in my 10 year old Doberman.
I have found though, that ever since they moved into the new hospital building that was built, the prices have gotten high and higher on many things. They are awesome vets, however they are considerably priced higher than other vets. I sometimes think I am paying for the all the new counter tops and fancy building. My dog recently needed to have a bladder stone surgery. Their estimate was 2700 dollars. Two different vets gave me an estimate in the 900-1200 dollar range. A thousand dollars difference is ALOT. Enough to make me start going to another vet. Dr. Sam, of All Pets on Route 202 South in Branchburg is excellent. He has done several surgeries for my girls and I am happy with him. His equipment is not as high tech as Plainfield Animals hospitals equipment, but then again, he gets the job done and does a great job. I have not had any issues.
The other thing that has been a downer for me at Plainfield Animals hospital is the fact that they have vet turnover to fast there. I find that unsettling.
