Happy's plumbing was chosen by my home warranty service when I called about a broken bolt on our toilet. He was an hour early (I'm a stay at home mom, so this was great for me), and he got it fixed quickly, and also replaced the bolt on the other side that would have had the same problem in the future. He recommended a brand of fixtures for whenever I would be replacing things in my home, and was on his way.
I used this doctor for many years. At first she was very friendly, always remembered family situations (she was seeing many in my family), etc. She moved her practice and suddenly it was more of a business. I understand she has to make money, but she was no longer as personable as she was before. It seemed like she wanted routine checkups, but if you had a real issue she wasn't really interested in helping you find it (those appointments take longer, therefore less appointments packed into the day, or something). It was disappointing to see the chance.
The food is great, but a little spendy. I still go there decently often when I am in the area, the building I work out of when I am there is right next door, so it is very convenient for pickup.
My husband and I visit the area decently often, and usually stop by here at least once. The food is good, and the staff is nice, and it's well priced.
I've never gotten quite what I asked for here, similar, but not quite. Granted, I was asking for funky things, but instead of just doing it (2 red and dark brown), she would just do one color, one much more highlighted than the other. It always looked good, just wasn't what I asked for. Also, you aren't getting anything done quick here.
This company was great when my sink was backing into my bathtub. Of course it happened when I had company! The plumber was a little early, and got to work right away. He snaked the sink and the tub, and was still having trouble. He was there for 3 hours, mumbling a bit about how he "should have been able to fix this is in 15 minutes". There is a per drain charge for snaking, and then also an hourly charge if the work takes longer than an hour. When he was finished and everything was clear, he only charged me for the first hour. I went into the bathroom later to cleanup the mess,and he had cleaned the tub and shower. I just had some splatters on the wall to cleanup, I was thrilled.
I was impressed with this doctor and her office when I first started going there. Appointments were prompt, waiting was kept to a minimum. As my pregnancy went on, the waits got longer (up to an hour), and my doctor seemed to spend either less time charting, or less time reading her charts. She didn't know things I'd told her at my last appointment, etc. I had to be scheduled for a c-section because my baby was breech. I was told this on a Tuesday, and my surgery was Sunday (very little notice, though not 'emergency'). When she came in the day of surgery, she told me she'd gone over my ultrasounds again and noticed that my baby had been all over the place. That was the first time I'd heard she wasn't head down like she was supposed to be during all my other appointments. She had been head down a couple of times I was checked, but nothing had been said that it was otherwise. I just felt like she should have said something, and like I said, that she needs to either note her charts better, or read her charts before appointments so she knows who she is about to see. On the other hand, my surgery was un-eventful, and I healed very well.
They were very helpful when I was in crazy pain. I needed a root canal and the specialist was out, but the main dentist was able to get in there and kill the nerve so that I could at least function until 2 days later when the specialist would be in. My only hang up is that I got a crown there a bit over a year ago and it's loose already. I have a new baby so I have not had a chance to go back... hoping I don't get charged too much for it to be fixed.
I have been impressed with her since I met her before my baby was born. Her values lined up with my husband and I well. When we went in after the baby was born, she remembered things we'd said weeks before during our interview (like the idea that my husband wasn't currently, but would be transitioning to work from home, etc). If she sees us in the hallway, she says hi to our baby by name (we've only seen her 6 times, and this has been true since the 2nd time). We moved about 30 miles away from her office just before the baby was born, but we will continue to go there for at least the first year, probably 2.
The nurses were all very nice, except for the one I dealt with on the last day, but I only had to see her a couple of times.
That said, the hospital as a whole needs to get more educated on babies that are exclusivly breastfed. They freaked me out about my baby's weight loss in the first few days and had me supplementing with formula, which I am not against if needed, but wasn't thrilled about. Once I left the hospital I find that my baby's weight loss was totally normal for a breastfed baby, but high for a formula fed baby. They need to quit lumping them together.
Also, the lactation consultants in affiliation with the hospital leave something to be desired. They are too quick to turn to things that can do more harm than good to a mother who wants to breastfeed. They also all say different things... I understand the value of the perspective of an individual, but I would think they would have the basics in line amongst themselves. I would go to the hospital again but I would not use the lactation consultants they provide.
