Dr. Donald H Kim, MD
I've been a patient of Dr Kim since 2011. When I finally found him and was accepted I was a mess. The Dr I had been to previously had me on methadone and two benzo's. Couldn't even function. Dr Kim was kind as was his staff. I had been in pm for about a year and had become very familiar with the way people in our situation are treated. Like drug seekers without even asking what my diagnosis is. Nurses, pharmacist, Dr all guilty of treating people like junkie herione addicts. Because they don't want to take the time to learn why you are there! Or don't care! Dr Kim cares. He's only had one nurse who was mean and condescending. Being the kind man he is he gave her a chance to come around and be kind. She was there about 3 months. Dr Kim has taught me techniques to alleviate pain so I don't have to be on the extreme dosage I was on when I got there! He has made recommendations that keep me active and in less pain. There aren't words to say how grateful I am to him and his staff. He is responsible and compassionate. And makes certain you are treated with dignity. I have come to expect that and to believe I deserve to be treated with dignity. Oh BTW I am in pain management due to another drs negligence in administering an epidural. Left me with a disease called arachnoidititus. Before my diagnosis was fibromyalgia and I have learned from Dr Kim ways to alleviate this. So without the epidural I could likely have stayed on a moderate dose of Norco. So next time you want to slur a dr and his staff maybe you could ask a variety of people thier experience. Dr Kim is the best Dr I have and the smartest, most compassionate. How many drs have ever told you they would pray for your grandchildren and continue to ask after them! Thank you Dr Kim! And all you sweet nurses and the entire staff!

Express Credit Auto
If you make your payments on time and have nothing to say to them, everything is just fine. If you have a question, let's say over something like online payment schedules, the account management staff is just plain rude and condescending. I purchased my vehicle from this company in July of '09. I have NEVER missed a payment and in fact am usually 3 days early with my bi-weekly payment. For some time now, they have been without an online pay portal, sup[supposedly because they were looking for a new vendor for that service. They are now using the same one they were before (as I was already registered there), and are now charging a $5.00 fee for a one-time payment for a service that used to be no charge. So, I tried setting up scheduled payments online for ACH. I didn't see anything about a $5.00 charge and not wanting to pay that charge every time a payment is made, I called to confirm whther or not it would be assessed each time. The "account manager" I spoke to was extremely rude, obviously reading from a script, and when I continued to ask questions, she said "(Oh, Lord ...), Sir, can I put you on hold?" She didn't wait for me to consent, and I sat on hold for a little over 4 minutes before she hung up. I've worked in technical support and customer service for 4 years now and had I ever treated a customer in such a fashion, I'd have been fired; no questions asked, leave your badge and headset w/ security on your way out the door!

Tracy DR Ellis Physician
Currently, I am in the middle of the series of treatments on my right knee (I'm to have 28, and I've had seven so far....three the first visit; four the second. The earlier reviewer described the procedure accurately. I'm scheduled for four more this week. I have experienced a remarkable change in my knee as well as in my ability to walk without any pain much of the time. Dr. Ellis stated on my last visit that such a quick improvement was not usual, but he was pleased I was feeling so much better. While I'm not yet 100%, I would easily be able to live with what I now have, if this is as good as it gets. And if improvement continues to happen, I will be very satisfied. I read all the comments about the legal situation he's had in the past--this was after my first round of treatments--and it did give me pause before I returned. But so far things are going very well. I'll continue with treatment to completion, if I need it. He had indicated that, should I feel the knee was up to the level of comfort I needed before finishing the 28 treatments, I could choose to stop with no penalty and without having to pay for treatments not received. Dr. Ellis now uses a payment program called Care Credit, which is interest-free for up to 18 months. (After that, interest goes up to over 20%, so it's best to pay it off as quickly as possible!)

Wright Michael Dr
I had my spine fused by another surgeon in 2004 due to a very severe scoliosis curve. I currently have hardware from right below my neck, all the way to my waist. 2 years ago Dr. Wright took x-rays & an MRI & discovered that I had a broken Herrington rod. Unfortunately I was the primary breadwinner at that time & didn't have the ability to have anything done about it. I called their office last Monday for an appointment, now that I'm ready & able to have surgery. I was super suprised when they offered me an appointment for this morning! (Saturday appointments are kind of rare with ortho's) We looked over the imaging again & discussed the game plan & I should be having the surgery at the end of August/early September. Needless to say, I'll be posting a review after I have recovered from everything. He may come off as arrogant, or cocky to some, but it's mainly because he is very experienced & knowledgeable & knows what he is doing. He talked to my husband & I for 30-45 min. & we never felt rushed at all. Maybe appointments during the week are different, but we really did have a positive experience!

Fong, Winston MD
I have been cared for by Dr. Fong for 2 years and found him to be very knowledgeable and understanding. I have chronic neck pain due to a car accident over 13 years ago. I saw Dr. Fong after many years of pain and worsened shoulder pain and numbness in my fingers on the left hand. I had an MRI and Xrays that revealed multiple levels of disc damage and mild compression of the spinal cord at C5,C6. Dr Fong was conservative in his recommendation and I received tx at pain management x2 years with good management of my symptoms with steroid injections. Just recently my symptoms have worsened and an updated MRI was performed with Xrays too. Dr. Fong reviewed the findings and after a through physical exam and long discussion in his office we have decided to proceed with a 3 level fusion in the c-spine using my own bone for the procedure. I feel confident that Dr Fong did not rush into cutting me open and only advised it now because we have exhausted all conservative treatments.

Abbas Toughanipour MD
At 43 I had a stroke, four years later I had a heart attack. I had Marfan Syndrome. Dr. Toughanipour had to perform the Bentall procedure which is a replacement of the aortic valve, aortic root and ascending aorta, with re-implantation of the coronary arteries into the graft. This operation is used to treat combined aortic valve and ascending aorta disease, including lesions associated with Marfan syndrome. On top of that he also had to perform a quadruple CABG (bypass). This was two surgeries in one that took 12 hours. He then sat be me for 3.5 hours because I wouldn't stop bleeding. This was a surgery that my surviving wasn't expected. I was off the ventilator within 24 hours and up walking within 48 hours and returned to work in six weeks. It's been 13 months since my surgery and I owe my life to Dr. Toughanipour. I feel great and have not had any complications. Dr. Toughanipour has to be one of the top cardiac surgeons in the nation!!

Auto Emporium
I bought a 2008 X3 from this dealership. They really worked with my mom and I because the wanted to sell the car, which is why I gave it the two stars. The car has been terrible, nothing but problem after problem. When I wanted to get the oil changed, the seller said, not to worry, they just changed the oil. I started having issues with the car immediately; a broken seal and nasty oil filter which had to be replaced, bad battery, braking Serpentine Belt, brake and 4X4 light coming on in car, window leaking in back seat, not to mention the black oil the seller either put into the car or hadn't changed. Repairs have already cost almost $1000.00 and more repairs are needed. Even the repair shop stated that all of these things should have been addressed before the car was sold! I need a reliable car to get back and forth to work, this is anything but!! Buyer beware!!! Only out to make a quick buck, could car less regarding what they sell.

Wright Michael Dr
ExceptionalCan't stop smilingI have been a patient under Dr. Wright for several years. I have to say the man is truly GIFTED!!!!Dr. Wright put in an amazingly beautiful bridge. I was preparing for my wedding. As such, I was very nervous about the procedure, and how it would turn out (after all they were going to remove my six top front teeth to put in the bridge). He took the time to explain every procedure and was very supportive, they look so natural and I cannot stop smiling. I get complements regularly from strangers on how beautiful my smile is. Dr. Wright is truly a perfectionist, to my benefit, and won’t stop until he has achieved it. I have benefitted from his extraordinary talents, professionalism and humanity. His staff is outstanding, and supper supportive. I cannot recommend him and his staff more highly. Thank You Dr. Wright 

NORRIS AUTO SALES
I pulled in to Norris feeling down because I had been looking for a car over a month, getting the run around and loads of bs from other dealers. I was looking at cars and the finance manager came out, I told him I'm just looking, I can't afford these cars. He said give me one chance and if I can't help you I will be straight up. I walked in told him which car I wanted, jimmy the salesman came in and together they worked their magic. I was approved, no co-signer, put a low down and got a 2008 charger with only 49,000 miles on it. Brand new on inside. Even found me cheaper insurance, sent me there. I was crying by the end of my visit. Out in 45 minutes. They will get you financed, don't be discouraged.. go to NORRIS, 700 South MacArthur ask for Jimmy or Cory.. They ROCK!! I am rolling in my new charger.. Thanks Guys!! VaRita P.

Ajouly Auto Sales
I was very pleased with working out a car deal with Mr. Ajouly. His sales consultants are very informative on their inventory and work with a No-Pressure attitude. I really enjoyed the friendly environment. From what I could tell, it seems Mr. Ajouly works very hard to make sure the only cars he puts on his lot are in almost mint condition mechanically and visually. I was very impressed.Overall, I was only displeased with one thing throught my entire time working out the agreement on my newly purchased lexus. This being that the store is completely a cash or bank check only dealer. However do not let this scare you off, Ajouly Auto Sales helped me get in touch with a very friendly Auto finance company that was able to not only finance me, but also able to get me completely taken care of and off the lot the very same afternoon.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
