Dr. S is a rarity - a physician who is aware that his patients have complex lives outside his office and that treatment and recommendations have to be weighed with real life in mind. He is willing to search for and entertain alternatives to surgery, unlike most surgeons. He is down-to-earth with a sense of humor. For example, when I asked why one of my knees had such severe arthritis and the other little disease, he answered, "Because you're lucky!" True!
Dr. E actually cares about you, as demonstrated by his punctilious follow-up - when I had seen one of the office's resident physician several times for the same complaint, Dr. E insisted my next appointment be with him. His recommendations are realistic, thorough, and timely. As a nurse, I see a lot of bad docs - Dr. E is a find. The staff are efficient and polite, if not friendly.
Dr. D is down-to-earth - not pompous, like many physicians; therefore, it is easy to ask him questions and get all the information you'd like in order to make choices. He did liposuction for me and the results are unbelievable (and I'm no kid).
Wonderful. We've had our dog groomed at Paws for over 10 years. Our dog is a mistrustful, snappy animal, and we tried Paws in desperation. Duffy was butter in Vernoica's hands. Now our doggie's old - blind and mostly deaf, with the assortment of warts and hair loss that accompanies an older dog.
I brought Duffy to Paws recently, sadly remarking to Veronica that Duffy looked as if he were dying. Once she ascertained that Duffy was in his usual state of health, Veronica murmured soothingly to me and carried Duffy inside. When I picked him up later, he looked WONDERFUL!
Duffy's "puppy cut" (short, but not shaved) made him look like a puppy; his eyes were bright, his ears pristine, his near-hairless tail was bushy. I could have wept; his walk was jaunty and we both felt a million times better. World class, indeed.
