Consider Looking Elsewhere!Lived in Studio (1 1/2 years)Pros of Studio:All electric, with only a water bill you pay with rent.You may ask for a full size fridge.Efficient if you're in a crunch and need refuge for a year, tops.Application was accepted within a day.Friendly office staff, in my experience.Maintenance more efficient with new staff. Make sure you call your work orders in. If no one gets back to you within a week, talk to the office ladies. They're great!I have had no problems with crime, personally.Office always gives you at least 24 hour notice before they enter your unit, if able.Cons of Studio:It was NOT mentioned when I signed the lease that they had the contract with a towing company that could take my car... overnight at that!! I honestly thought my car had gotten stolen when I woke up to go to work.Constant maintenance issues. Sometimes maintenance is quick, sometimes not so much. I have never had emergency maintenance answer my call when needed at night or on weekends.Absolutely no reimbursements for problems involving hot water or tubs. If you can't shower for (x) reason(s), tough luck.Apartment had roaches, and fleas in the carpet from the stray cats outside that the tenants feed on the sidewalk RIGHT OUTSIDE MY UNIT. Some apartments have reported bed bugs.Mini fridge is... mini.Gas stove is very small.Few cabinets, and small amounts of counter space.SMALL sink for washing dishes.No baseboard heat or central air. All heating/cooling is through window/wall units that definitely do not heat up the small units during winter.Solicitors come frequently.Carpets look dirty and old, paint jobs are shoddy, electric bills are ridiculous during the winter time.Strangers have knocked on my door at 3 in the morning looking for previous tenants, neighbors, etc.Lights from cars and emergency vehicles wake you constantly if you don't have thick curtains.You hear EVERYTHING. People outside your window, talking, walking, playing music, etc.Exterminators may not come to your unit, even upon request.

Hudson Import Auto Services
Hudson Import Auto Svcs is hands down the MOST REPUTABLE auto repair business I have EVER encountered! Nahm is the owner and the hardest worker ... I swear he's my guardian angel AND the HEART and SOUL of his business! He doesn't just service imports- he knows about and works on ALL makes and model cars!The integrity, the kindness, the patience, the respect, the knowledge - not to mention, his reasonable prices and complete passion he has for the work that is done there; makes him the BEST of the BEST! There are not enough Woohoo's to express the lovely person he is inside and out. He has the most dedicated hard working mechanics and Nahm has NEVER failed me! I usually don't take the time to write reviews but I couldn't resist giving him kudos for his awesome work and character. I wont take my car anywhere else 'cause I found someone I can trust and I happen to like it done right the first time :)I hadn't been there for about a year but when I called him last week with an urgent situation I was experiencing with my new used car (Toyota Avalon). He not only remembered me/my voice over the phone- he took me in based on the symptoms my car was having (even tho it was one of his busiest days) 'cause he felt it wasn't safe to drive! His priority are his customers! My car was running horribly but he squeezed me in while I waited that same day and ... now my car runs like BRAND NEW!!!When I first got there, he test drove the car and knew IMMEDIATELY what was wrong. He also test drove the car himself AFTER the repairs, to be sure the symptoms were no longer an issue. He is BEYOND BELIEF- and I can always count on him. This respectable man is a rare find - a nice family man who treats his customers like one of his own family! His place is clean and comfy as I watched TV. All I gotta say is GOD BLESS HIM and thank you, Nahm, for always being there!

Full Automotive
I have been using Full Automotive for almost twenty years. Mike is a very good experienced and most importantly honest mechanic. The store front and waiting area is unimpressive, but the results are good and the repairs done need to be done. I had two experiences that really sold me on Full auto.I went in to a local tire shop on Wilson and Fisher for a deal on an oil change and "complimentary" inspection, when I was informed I would need a costly strut replacement and alignment for about $600! Knowing that the 3 year old car with 51 thousand miles had driven and handled beautifully, I ran it by full automotive, and had the struts checked. He said there was absolutely nothing wrong with them. He told me he would let me know if I ever needed to replace them, if I did not notice it first. I traded the car in 5 years later with 113 thousand miles and the struts and car were still great. Had west-side Toyota dealership quote me over $1,200 (to start) to work on a significant problem with Camry after a thorough engine and system analysis. Even then they could not be sure it would fully correct the problem. Full Auto took an OBD reader and within minutes told me exactly what the problem was and the cost was $450 (majority for Toyota part) - repair was spot on. The dealership was off the mark on the needed specific repair they were trained to repair!Full Auto does good work at a fair rate, and does what needs to be done. They even let you know you can wait on certain things if they are not quite ready for service or inform you of what will need to be done in the future. Pretty store front and nice waiting area are lacking, but honest and knowledgeable mechanic owns and operates this long standing west-side business.

Cardinal Creek Apartments
CORPORATE SLUMLORDS! This place rents to 70 percent section eight clients and although there is no problem with that, they treat the area as if it were for the lowest of demographics of people. The outside maintenance is horrible! The pay one guy to cut grass for the entire property, he does not trim or blow grass from the sidewalks or parking areas. You'll find grass on your car and kicked up on you door as you come and go from your property. There are large weeks that grow between the cracks in the sidewalk and around the building that that they totally ignore. Your lucky to see the grass cut every two weeks at this place. Often times the trash dumpsters over flow days before trash pickups and no one picks it up until days after the collection. The management team is not forthright and will tell you anything to pacify you; they have more excuse for the condition of this place than a tenant who is two months behind on their rent. I took over 45 days for them make minor repairs upon my move in and some of the repairs are still not done after 90 days. The maintenance work is sloppy and often just a temporary fix. The neighborhood is highly ghetto and noisy and very prone to crime. Parking can sometimes be an issue; you will not always get to park near your apartment. There are unsightly tall weeds around every building in this place except for the ones facing the main street, they try to represent a false impression from the street view. Please, do a drive through and check this dump out! I could go on and on based on my first 90 days here but PLEASE, HEED MY WARNING, FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO LIVE. Your rent payments can do you a lot better than this dump! I'm out, lease up or not!

Woodlands Apartments
My son lived at Woodland Apt for 1 year. It was his first apartment so the office manager told him he needed a co-signer. I gladly co-signed for him. Everything was fine, He probably paid on time every month, then his lease expired and he moved out. That is when the drama started. The people in the rental office called him and told him he needed to pay an additional $75. My son never got back with them to pay the $75. Now at this point, anyone and everyone knows that a co-signer (ME!) is to pay it. However, the head office manager NEVER contacted me to inform me to pay the 75 one-dollar bills! Instead, she passed my name and my son’s name on to a Debt Collection Agency-which is bad for a person’s credit! After the Debt Collection Agency called me and I settled the matter, I went to confront her about this. I ask her why she did not simply pick up the phone and ask me for the measly $75. Her replies were-in my view, nothing but well-rehearsed excuses and alibies. All I wanted was a simple apology but she stubbornly refused. If you are considering moving here, my advice is this. A) Any questions you have, write them down ahead of your interview time with the office staff so that when you ask them your questions, record on your iPhone their replies so that you can transcribe their words and make them sign your contract before you go signing all of their contracts! B) After you move out, arrange to go with the person into your apartment where you lived that is inspecting it so that you can challenge every idem they decide to see as needing you to pay for. Other than that, the apartment complex is an absolutely nice place to live!

Alternative Auto Care
This shop is great for SMALL fixes. The one's they can't over charge you on OR charge a storage fee, since their on a small lot & take on so many clients they can't get to u as fast as they would like. But still want that storage fee instead of saying u have a choice to come get it or be charge. 1st issue. Charming, well educated, very skilled workers, luv that part. But when when a customer is charged for something they wanted done, & they don't, big problem. When small parts like an oil stick is broken & the owner knows it wasn't, but they say it was like that when it came in, Wrong. When a customer is coming in there to spend well over a thousand dollars, you might wanna rethink how u do business. And on that note, The OVERCHARGE for labor is insane for such a small business, U'd think u were getting taken advantage from a dealership for some of the labor charges. Some not all, i have been there for smaller things, and they treated me good on price. But after that last job, sadly i will not be returning. over charged, esp on parts we all know how cheap they get them, profit is not worth being greedy. Not doing things customers ask for, thats a biggie with any customer, things getting broke n not fixing it that is just wrong. I have went to well know company's and had fair prices "even if they are a little pricey" and it was cheaper than going here. After my experience here, i'd rather start using back yard mechanics, at least they keep it blunt, and work with ur budget. Enter at your own risk.

The Saab Shop
I had just bought my daughter a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero in Portland Oregon. It drove across the country to Louisville Kentucky without issue. In Laramie Wyonimg, with 35 mile winds I attempted to top off the oil and proceeded like an idiot to pour about 1/3 of a quart all over the engine trying to get the pour stream to go in the oil fill, and then stuffed the oil can into the fill, most likely overfilling the engine. To say the least we had oil everywhere. After dropping my daughter in Louisville, I was to borrow the car to drive to Pittsburgh to see a client. Just before Wheeling, Pa., the car threw the Serpentine belt and my trip was over. I emailed 3 shops in town on a Sunday night while stranded on the side of the interstate. Dave, the owner of the Saab Shop, was the only one to respond back to my email for help and called me to assess the situation. I had AAA tow the car back to Columbus, Oh. 115 miles to get it to The Saab Shop, and stayed the night. Monday morning, Dave and crew dropped everything, worked on getting all the oil off the motor, and replaced the belt and pulleys in less than 5 hours from the time they opened. These guys will go out of their way to please their customers and help others if they have the opportunity. Thanks to all for being there in my time of need. I was able to make my flight back to Oregon without incident because of these guys, thus saving me more money. I would highly recommend. Ted and Dave are great. Saab Shop A+!!!! Chris O'Neill

Clear Vue Auto Glass
Wow...where to begin?? This man is AMAZING! My car was vandalized Thursday night Jan. 31st. We didn't realize it until Friday morning February 1st. My car is a 2006 VW Beetle with leather seats, the window had been shattered and the glass shards were all over my passenger seat and carpet. We were really worried about the glass cutting up the leather, AND the very cold air ruining the leather as well. Needless to say, we needed to choose the company that could replace my window the quickest. Safelite quoted us $212.78 and said they couldn't do it until Monday *sigh* so we set up the appointment but continued calling other window replacement companies. We called many others, but ONLY CLEAR VUE AUTO GLASS agreed to get us in THE VERY SAME DAY! Woohoo! THEN, to further impress us, the owner beat Safelite's price by $43.61 LESS than Safelite quoted us! So my husband drove my little car in the freezing cold to Clear Vue. The owner not only replaced my window, but he used a vacuum to remove every last shard of glass out of my leather seat, (not one scratch on the leather!) out of my carpet, even out of the (extremely hard to reach) inside on my door panel! Which was a huge deal because I have OCD and if I would have heard glass rattling around inside my door it would have made me crazy! LOL! THEN, as if we weren't impressed enough already, he swept my carpets spotless, THEN cleaned & polished my dashboard! I'll never use anybody else again! A+++++ Thanks again! :-)

Tallo & Assoc
I have been seeing Dr Ravi Dhawale. He is one of the best endo I have seen and very knowledgeable.The nurses there are worst and seems like they do not really care about any patients health.Recently I ran out of Insulin (I am type-1 diabetic and cannot get by with out insulin) and when I called pharmacy they said my prescriptions were expired.I tried to get prescription refill through calls and after no use I stopped by at the office and talked to the receptionist.The receptionist at front desk was really helpful and said the prescription should be ready be end of the day.After 1 day the pharmacy still not received the prescription and when I call the Nurse number, it just goes to VM or the call is kept holding all the time.I had to skip work again drive to office and receptionist listened to me patiently and asked what I need and worked with the Nurse.She was also able to get me samples to get by for time being and said since Dr was out of office the Nurse could not refill my prescription on time.Wow !!!! that was nice but I wish the nurse has the courtesy to just give me a call back and explain the situation.I am happy with the Dr and receptionist but I think the nurses need to improve and be more helpful to patients in emergency situations at least.My rating:Dr Ravi Dhwale 5 starsReceptionist 5 starsNurse 1 starI am rating it 2 starts because of multiple office trips for my prescription refills.

A Team Transmissions
Excellent customer service! They took in my car and had my transmission replaced the very next day. I can't say enough for the service I received from Thom and Greg. Not being from the area, they provided transportation to and from hotel. If you find yourself stuck with transmission problems of any sort, this is the place to bring your vehicle. A free diagnostic will be done along with a repair estimate of cost and time. They have technicians whose sole purpose is to remanufacture and completely overhaul transmissions of all makes throughout the day. When complete, these remanufactured transmissions are stress tested and placed on the shelf to maintain a running inventory of stock transmissions. They had a stock transmission on their shelf for my car and I was on the road the very next morning. The repair service at A-Team Transmissions does not stop with transmissions. These guys are extremely knowledgeable with transmissions but they also take care of engine problems. Transmission problems are progressive and can get worse any moment without notice. I witnessed this with my own. If you bring yours in, then they tell you the problem is worse and will cost more, I would not question the integrity of their answer. These guys shoot it straight and give honest answers regardless of how much it may hurt to hear the news.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
