I already had a prescription so I didn't have to see the doctor. One of the staff members, Anna Marie, was a sweetheart. I had gone to Sears and they had not closed my authorization, so Anna Marie took over, called Sears and had them close it, explained everything to me from what was available to me under my insurance to all I needed to make a decision.
Anna Marie made a difficult decision easy and quick :O)
I learnt that the owner helps animals! He flies them where they need to go in his little plane and that is a plus for me and my kitties ;O)
It's a pleasure patronage with a selfless business that helps the defenseless. Kuddos to you!
I'm still shopping for a vet. I called this one two and was not impressed. I could not get a straight answer as to what the initial visit fee would be. The receptionist first said it would be $50.50 and then said that if the vet acted as a holistic vet then the fee COULD be up to $100. The holistic side if the vet would have to "work more", "there's more to think and discuss" so it would be around $100. Really?
Also if the vet takes longer than expected with me and my dog, then the visit "can cost more." The usual time is 15 minutes to 1/2 hour. If the vet takes longer than that I will be charged for her time! No kidding? One other review I read from Yelp called them "thieves." I agree! If they can't be upfront and give you definite answers and if they plan to nickle and dime you, then the negative review must be true. I would have to bring a timer with me since I won't be able to trust them and would have to tell the vet, hi, no cheat-chat, I'm on the clock." UGH! Who'd want to do business with sharks like these?
I'm shopping for a vet, called this one. Phone wasn't being answered for almost 3 hours on a Monday afternoon. The receptionist wasn't any help when she finally decided to answer the phone. She was less than pleasant and even got annoyed that I was asking questions like what would happen if I needed to talk to someone and you're not answering the phone? She "strongly" suggested I call the "emergency" vets (WT...) What if it's not an emergency? Still strongly suggest the emergency vets. Finally she got very annoyed and said she could not help me and she needed to go help the vet. Wow! She sounded exploited. There should be a receptionist AND someone to help the vet. One thing she did answered; the initial fee to establish relationship is $130-$150 because it "includes acupuncture and" (massage) I forget what other half baked excuse to nickle and dime me . I guess these are mandatory since I wasn't given an option to decline. If this is the start of a relationship between vet and patient, can you imagine what's down the road? I felt as if though I will be taken advantage of if I went there.
This was my favorite restaurant in all of Poconos. I hate cooking so you know I have been to many restaurants in the area. This was IT! Unfortunately, someone thought it needed a make over. Well...maybe it did, though I loved the old look, I get the new one.
The new look is fun and cozy. I love the lower tables and chairs in the bar area (hubby hates it). I could live with all the changes every where, but not the changes to the menu.
I ordered my favorite dish there, chicken franchese, what a disappointment, it tasted like boiled chicken. It had been fried with the skin and it was just horrible. I won't go there for dinner anymore, but I will go for drinks.
Food was eatable, place needs a cleaning--smells like the carpet has never seen a steamer. One time we were having dinner and my hubby reached out to my plate with his fork to taste the dressing on my salad. Wow! These people freaked!!!! We're not allowed to eat from each others' plate!!!!!!! You have to BUY another. They're afraid that their profit will be lowered if you take an olive from your partner's dish. Now I go to Long Horn's. I can take a french fry from my hubby's plate and no one will throw a fit.
This place is now closed, that's how "amazing" it was.
Went there once and ordered spaghetti with meat-sauce, I got some pasta with KETCHUP!!!! Can't remember what hubby ordered, but it tasted like pasta with Mayonnaise.
Nasty little place.
Careful handing cash to the reception people, they're quick with the hands and think you're dumb and won't notice that they're thieves. Prices on medications change erratically like they're making it up as they go along. One vet tells you different from the other, the help tell you different from the vets. It's a free-for-all mess in there and no body's minding the store, so the thieves take advantage of the chaos. Dr. Clair is out of there, but the problems are still festering. Since there are so many mice and no cat, mistakes are abundant on your pets medical histories and it could cost you your pet. An "I'm sorry" just won't do. Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY from this hellhole!
